Side 224 - Yet mark'd I where the bolt of Cupid fell : It fell upon a little western flower, — Before milk-white, now purple with love's wound, — And maidens call it love-in-idleness.
Side 100 - My deare loue with louing so, (Whom as then I did not know.) Loue I did the fairest boy, That these fields did ere enioy. Loue I did, fair Qanymed ; ( Venus darling, beauties bed ; ) Him I thought the fairest creature ; Him the quintessence of Nature...
Side xxxvii - And Shakespeare thou, whose hony-flowing Vaine, (Pleasing the World) thy Praises doth obtaine. Whose Venus, and whose Lucrece (sweete, and chaste) Thy Name in fames immortall Booke have plac't. Live ever you, at least in Fame live ever: Well may the Bodye dye, but Fame dies never.

Side xxxix - ... Babes are blessed in their Birth : Thinke on no worldly woe, lament thy sin ; (For lesser cease, when greater griefes begin). Sweare no vaine oathes ; heare much, but little say ; Speake ill of no man, tend thine owne affaires, Bridle thy wrath, thine angrie mood delay ; (So shall thy minde be seldome cloyd with cares :) Be milde and gentle in thy speech to all, Refuse no honest gaine when it doth fall.
