14 psl. - Tower ; And easy sighs, such as folk draw in love. The stately seats, the Ladies bright of hue, The dances short, long tales of great delight, With words and looks that tigers could but rue ! Where each of us did plead the other's right.
77 psl. - Books. The Readers and the Hearers like my books, But yet some Writers cannot them digest ; But what care I ? for when I make a feast, I would my Guests should praise it, not the Cooks.

75 psl. - Precedency's a jest : vassal and lord, Grossly familiar, side by side consume. When self-esteem, or others' adulation, Would cunningly persuade us we were something Above the common level of our kind ; The grave gainsays the smooth-complexioned flattery, And with blunt truth acquaints us what we are.
5 psl. - And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
