Page 210 - A jest's prosperity lies in the ear Of him that hears it, never in the tongue Of him that makes it...
Page 71 - If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches, and poor men's cottages princes' palaces. It is a good divine that follows his own instructions : I can easier teach twenty what were good to be done, than be one of the twenty to follow mine own teaching.
