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