The merry year is born Like the bright berry from the naked thorn.
Rage is essentially vulgar, and never more vulgar than when it proceeds from mortified pride, disappointed ambition, or thwarted willfulness.
Her very frowns are fairer far|Than smiles of other maidens are.
There is scarcely a crime before me that is not, directly or indirectly, caused by strong drink.
