Страница 74 - If you hear a wise sentence, or an apt phrase, commit it to your memory, with respect of the circumstance, when you shall speak it. Let never oath be heard to come out of your mouth, nor word of ribaldry : detest it in others, so shall custom make to yourself a law against it in yourself.
Страница 75 - I will report no other wonder but this : that, though I lived with him, and knew him from a child, yet I never knew him other than a man, with such staidness of mind, lovely and familiar gravity, as carried grace and reverence above greater years. His talk ever of knowledge, and his very play tending to enrich his mind...
