Seite 120 - My father was a yeoman and had no lands of his own, only he had a farm of ^"3 or £\ by the year, at the uttermost, and hereupon he tilled so much as kept half a dozen men. He had walk for a hundred sheep, and my mother milked thirty kine.
Seite 2 - He had walk for a hundred sheep, and my mother milked thirty kine. He was able, and did find the King a harness, with himself and his horse ; while he came to the place that he should receive the King's wages. I can remember that I buckled his harness when he went into Blackheath field. He kept me to school, or else I had not been able to have preached before the King's Majesty now.
Seite 121 - He married my sisters with five pound, or twenty nobles apiece ; so that he brought them up in godliness and fear of God. He kept hospitality for his poor neighbours, and some alms he gave to the poor. And all this he did of the said farm, where he that now hath it payeth sixteen pound by year, or more, and is not able to do anything for his prince, for himself, nor for his children, or give a cup of drink to the poor.
Seite 171 - Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man. We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.
Seite 144 - He was, I heard say, a covetous man, a covetous man indeed : I would there were no more in England ! He was, I heard say, an ambitious man : I would there were no more in England ! He was, I heard say, a seditious man, a contemner of common prayer : I would there were no more in England ! Well : he is gone. I would he had left none behind him ! Remember you, my lords, that you pray in your houses to the better mortification of your flesh.
Seite 131 - But London was never so ill as it is now. In times past men were full of pity and compassion, but now there is no pity; for in London their brother shall die in the streets for cold, he shall lie sick at the door between stock and stock, I cannot tell what to call it, and perish there for hunger: was there ever more unmercifulness in Nebo?
Seite 168 - Christ's body ; and yet the bread is still bread, and the wine still wine. For the change is not in the nature, but in the dignity ; because now that which was common bread hath the dignity to exhibit Christ's body : for whereas it was common bread, it is now no more common bread, neither ought it to be so taken, but as holy bread sanctified by God's word.
Seite 121 - I say ye pluck salvation from the people and utterly destroy the realm. For by yeomen's sons the faith of Christ is and hath been maintained chiefly.
Seite 2 - My father was a yeoman, and had no lands of his own, only he had a farm of three or four pound by year at the uttermost, and hereupon he tilled so much as kept half a dozen men. He had walk for a hundred sheep ; and my mother milked thirty kine.
