الصفحة 339 - But cloud instead, and ever-during dark Surrounds me, from the cheerful ways of men Cut off; and, for the book of knowledge fair, Presented with a universal blank Of Nature's works, to me expunged and rased, And "Wisdom at one entrance quite shut out.

الصفحة 380 - ... you shall pretend to be as bookish and contemplative as ever you were: all these courses have both their advantages and uses in themselves otherwise, and serve exceeding aptly to this purpose. Whereunto I add one expedient more, stronger than all the rest; and, for mine own confident opinion, void of any prejudice or danger of diminution of your greatness ; and that is, the bringing in of some martial man to be of the Council ; dealing directly with her Majesty in it, as for her service and your...
