Seite 25 - But I say it is, miss; there is nothing on earth so easy as to forget, if a person chooses to set about it. I'm sure I have as much forgot .your poor dear uncle as if he had never existed — and I thought it my duty so to do; .and let me tell you, Lydia, these violent memories don't become a young woman.
Seite 212 - Cheeks of rose untouched by art ? I will own the colour true, When yielding blushes aid their hue. Is her hand so soft and pure ? I must press it, to be sure ; Nor can I be certain then, Till it grateful press again. Must I with attentive eye Watch her heaving bosom sigh ? I will do so — when I see That heaving bosom sigh for me.
Seite 28 - If he demurred, I knocked him down; and if he grumbled at that, I always sent him out of the room. Mrs. Mai. Aye, and the properest way, o' my conscience ! Nothing is so conciliating to young people as severity.

Seite 27 - I would by no means wish a daughter of mine to be a progeny of learning; I don't think so much learning becomes a young woman; for instance, I would never let her meddle with Greek, or Hebrew, or algebra, or simony, or fluxions, or paradoxes, or such inflammatory branches of learning — neither would it be necessary for her to handle any of your mathematical, astronomical, diabolical instruments.
Seite 25 - You thought, miss! I don't know any business you have to think at all — thought does not become a young woman. But the point we would request of you is, that you will promise to forget this fellow — to illiterate him, I say, quite from your memory.
Seite 58 - Twould be a trick she well deserves; besides, you know the fellow tells her he'll get my consent to see her — ha! ha! Let him if he can, I say again. Lydia, come down here!
Seite 38 - Spoke like a man ! But pray, Bob, I observe you have got an odd kind of a new method of swearing Acres. Ha ! ha ! you've taken notice of it — 'tis genteel, isn't it ! — I didn't invent it myself though ; but a commander in our militia, a great scholar, I assure you, says that there is no meaning ii.
