Quotes edit

  • With that she dasht her on the lippes,
    So dyed double red:
    Hard was the heart that gave the blow,
    Soft were those lips that bled.
    • Albion’s England (published 1612), Book viii. chap. xli. stanza 53.
  • We thinke no greater blisse then such
    To be as be we would,
    When blessed none but such as be
    The same as be they should.
    • Albion’s England (published 1612), Book x. chap. lix. stanza 68.
