Seite 395 - Ask no more questions than what may serve to know the prince's thought. In private discourse the king seldom speaketh of any man's temper, discretion, or good virtues ; so meddle not at all, but find out a clue to guide you to the heart and most delightful subjects of his mind.
Seite 352 - Queen which had been bestowed on his garments; such as wine, cream, jelly, beverage, cakes, spices, and other good matters. The entertainment and show went forward, and most of the presenters went backward, or fell down; wine did so occupy their upper chambers. Now did appear, in rich dress, Hope, Faith, and Charity: Hope did...
Seite 354 - I will now, in good sooth, declare to you, who will not blab, that the gunpowder fright is got out of all our heads, and we are going on, hereabouts, as if the devil was contriving every man should blow up himself, by wild riot, excess, and devastation of time and temperance.
Seite 353 - King, who did not accept it, but put it by with his hand; and, by a strange medley of versification, did endeavour to make suit to the King.
