Seite 84 - If I knew a miser, who gave up every kind of comfortable living, all the pleasure of doing good to others, all the esteem of his fellow-citizens, and the joys of benevolent friendship, for the sake of accumulating wealth, Poor man, said I, you pay too much for your whistle.
Seite 100 - Then you were to keep straight forward, till you came to four roads. MARLOW. Come to where four roads meet? TONY. Ay; but you must be sure to take only one of them MARLOW. O, sir, you're facetious. TONY. Then, keeping to the right, you are to go sideways till you come upon Crack-skull Common; there you must look sharp for the track of the wheel, and go forward till you come to Farmer Murrain's barn.
Seite 23 - Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination ; never put off till tomorrow what you can do to-day. That was the rule of the famous and unfortunate Pensionary De Witt; who, by strictly following it, found time, not only to do the whole business of the republic, but to pass his evenings at assemblies and suppers, as if he had had nothing else to do or think of.
Seite 90 - He lived frankly among men, and as we have seen, saw many different types of men, and in his own time filled many parts as a man of the world and of business. Yet, with all this active and observant life, he was commonly very quiet and kept much to himself. The Host in the Tales japes at him for his lonely, abstracted air. "Thou lookest as thou wouldest find a hare, And ever on the ground I see thee stare.
Seite 100 - It's a damn'd long, dark, boggy, dirty, dangerous way. Stingo, tell the gentlemen the way to Mr. Hardcastle's; — [Winking upon the LANDLORD.], Mr. Hardcastle's of Quagmire Marsh, you understand me?
