Page 249 - My heart is pretty good; yet it beats; and my pulses, ha! — I have none — mercy on me! — hum — yes, here they are — gallop, gallop, gallop, gallop, gallop, gallop, hey! whither will they hurry me? — Now they're gone again — and now I'm faint again; and pale again, and, hem; and my, hem! — breath, hem!
Page 62 - Heaven, there's not a woman will give a man the pleasure of a chase ! my sport is always balked, or cut short ! I stumble over the game I would pursue. 'Tis dull and unnatural to have a hare run full in the hound's mouth, and would distaste the keenest hunter: I would have overtaken, not have met, my game.
Page 212 - No, indeed, he speaks truth now ; for as Tattle has pictures of all that have granted him favours, he has the pictures of all that have refused him ; if satires, descriptions, characters, and lampoons are pictures.

Page 267 - ... en: — so faith I told'n in plain terms, if I were minded to marry I'd marry to please myself, not him: and for the young woman that he provided for me, I thought it more fitting for her to learn her sampler and make dirt-pies, than to look after a husband; for my part I was none of her man.

Page 33 - Gazette! Why there again now. Why, sir, there are not three words of truth the year round put into the Gazette. I'll tell you a strange thing now as to that. You must know, sir, I was resident in Flanders the last campaign, had a small post there, but no matter for that.
