Página 129 - Et tout homme d'honneur s'en doit scandaliser. Je vous vois accabler un homme de caresses, Et témoigner pour lui les dernières tendresses; De protestations, d'offres et de serments Vous chargez la fureur de vos embrassements; Et quand je vous demande après quel est cet homme, A peine pouvez-vous dire comme il se nomme; Votre chaleur pour lui tombe en vous séparant, Et vous me le traitez, à moi, d'indifférent.
Página 301 - British constitution; that it is an essential, unalterable right, in nature, engrafted into the British constitution, as a fundamental law, and ever held sacred and irrevocable by the subjects within the realm, that what a man has honestly acquired is absolutely his own, which he may freely give, but cannot be taken from him without his consent...
Página 132 - Et je suis, quelque ardeur qu'elle m'ait pu donner, Le premier à les voir, comme à les condamner. Mais, avec tout cela, quoi que je puisse faire, Je confesse mon foible; elle a l'art de me plaire : J'ai beau voir ses défauts , et j'ai beau l'en blâmer, En dépit qu'on en ait, elle se fait aimer...
Página 168 - It is a shameful and unblessed thing to take the scum of people, and wicked condemned men, to be the people with whom you plant; and not only so, but it spoileth the plantation; for they will ever live like rogues, and not fall to work, but be lazy, and do mischief, and spend victuals, and be quickly weary, and then certify over to their country to the discredit of the plantation.
