Pàgina 92 - I will further tell you, that all my endeavours, from a boy, to distinguish myself, were only for want of a great title and fortune, that I might be used like a Lord by those who have an opinion of my parts — whether right or wrong, it is no great matter, and so the reputation of wit or great learning does the office of a blue ribbon, or of a coach and six horses.
Pàgina 44 - I hate and detest that animal called man, although I heartily love John, Peter, Thomas, and so forth.
Pàgina 122 - I dislike nothing in your letter but an affected apology for bad writing, bad spelling, and a bad pen; which you pretend Mr Gay found fault with; Wherein you affront Mr Gay, you affront me, and you affront yourself.

It will not be always et tibi quos mihi dempserit apponet annos.
Pàgina 31 - I dare not venture to publish them : For however orthodox they may be while I am now writing, they may become criminal enough to bring me into trouble before midsummer.
Pàgina 155 - But even this trick shall not provoke me to print the true one, which indeed is not proper to be seen till I can be seen no more...
Pàgina 194 - Patron, and then descended to be my Friend. It is a great favour of Heaven, that your health grows better by the addition of years. I have...
