of French into English. % A Dialogue of Comfort against 12, 3/ 1
my good Uncle, before a few years passed, that 12, 3/ 9
them, have ever had a guise in Hungary, to 12, 3/ 15
the greatest comfort that a man can have is 12, 3/ 18
leave of your kindred, a sort of very comfortless 12, 4/ 2
counsel hath long been a great stay; not as 12, 4/ 4
all you had been a natural father. ANTHONY Mine 12, 4/ 5
all places of Christendom, a customable manner of unchristian 12, 4/ 9
comfort is used to a man of mine age 12, 4/ 15
we well wot, that a young man may die 12, 4/ 16
year more, and of a frail folly delighteth to 12, 4/ 19
that fire, shall in a manner burn up quite 12, 4/ 21
therein make ye (methinketh) a reckoning very much like 12, 5/ 1
ye would cast away a strong staff and lean 12, 5/ 2
staff and lean upon a rotten reed. For God 12, 5/ 2
I. And he is a sure comforter, that (as 12, 5/ 3
he promised, sent them a comforter, the Holy Spirit 12, 5/ 6

word or twain, but a great heap thereof, to 12, 5/ 23
eyes of our heart a fearful imagination of this 12, 6/ 22
prison, and some for a triumph tormented and killed 12, 6/ 29
was born, and within a while after, all the 12, 7/ 30
thereof he counted as a victory against the whole 12, 8/ 6
counsels. For surely, Cousin, a little before your coming 12, 8/ 21
and hope to be a saved soul by the 12, 8/ 24
I regard him not a rush. And yet when 12, 9/ 5
in your heart as a treacle against the poison 12, 9/ 12
for lucre, or of a foolish pride, give sick 12, 11/ 9
Second Chapter That for a foundation men must needs 12, 12/ 6
of can never avail a fly. For likewise as 12, 12/ 14
no faith. For except a man first believe that 12, 12/ 17
is true, how can a man take any comfort 12, 12/ 19
inspiration of God be a weak worker with Almighty 12, 12/ 28
perfectum desursum est, descendens a patre luminum" (Every good 12, 12/ 31
our faith together into a little narrow room. And 12, 13/ 13
the little grain of a mustard seed, which is 12, 13/ 14
well able to command a great mountain of tribulation 12, 13/ 20
our heart; whereas, with a very feeble faith and 12, 13/ 22
very feeble faith and a faint, we shall be 12, 13/ 22
scant able to remove a little hillock. And, therefore 12, 13/ 23
we pray God for a full and a fast 12, 13/ 31
for a full and a fast faith. And I 12, 13/ 31
comfort in tribulation may a man take in this 12, 14/ 5
he feeleth in himself a desire and longing to 12, 14/ 7
that person is in a manner desperate, that hath 12, 14/ 12
that they fall into a careless deadly dullness, regarding 12, 14/ 19
if they lay in a lethargy, with which it 12, 14/ 20
and these are in a manner with impatience so 12, 14/ 27
they were in half a frenzy, and may, with 12, 15/ 1
frenzy, and may, with a custom of such fashioned 12, 15/ 1
in tribulation is even a mischievous high branch of 12, 15/ 3
by them, fareth like a man that in peril 12, 15/ 11
it never so simple a stick; but then that 12, 15/ 13
And therefore hath he a great cause to be 12, 16/ 2
warrant that mind for a cause of so great 12, 16/ 12
to be comforted, asketh a thing so lawful and 12, 16/ 18
take of that desire a very great occasion of 12, 16/ 21
he hath in God a good faith, it is 12, 16/ 22
good faith, it is a good token unto him 12, 16/ 23
God hath put such a virtuous well ordered appetite 12, 16/ 25
God himself. And what a comfort then may this 12, 16/ 29
by that desire perceive a sure undoubted token, that 12, 16/ 30
us. That tribulation is a means to draw man 12, 17/ 1
for God's comfort is a good cause of great 12, 17/ 7
that tribulation is yet a means to drive him 12, 17/ 14
sendeth, serveth ordinarily for a means of amendment. Saint 12, 17/ 20
till Christ gave him a great fall and threw 12, 17/ 23
then God laid on a sorer lash that made 12, 18/ 1
Aaron, and confessed himself a sinner, and God for 12, 18/ 3
his heart again. Many a man that in an 12, 18/ 10
worldly fantasies, findeth in a greater pain all these 12, 18/ 11
tribulation itself many times a means to bring the 12, 18/ 14
the tribulation itself be a means oftentimes to get 12, 18/ 21
sometimes alone bringeth not a man to it. And 12, 18/ 23
it be well considered), a comfort marvelous great. His 12, 19/ 3
It sufficeth not that a man have a desire 12, 19/ 8
that a man have a desire to be comforted 12, 19/ 8
the person have first a desire to be comforted 12, 19/ 14
him; is not this a good desire of God's 12, 19/ 19
of God's comfort, and a desire sufficient for him 12, 19/ 19
not. I touched before a word of this point 12, 19/ 22
it me here yourself. A man may many times 12, 19/ 26
very few), but under a certain condition, either expressed 12, 19/ 29
of death, and many a good man is troubled 12, 20/ 8
some of these tribulations a man may pray God 12, 20/ 16
of temptation. For if a man should in every 12, 20/ 27
And that mind must a man have, ye wot 12, 20/ 29
must express or imply a condition therein; that is 12, 21/ 14
not lightly do man a more vengeance than in 12, 22/ 13
again by God in a manner that he was 12, 22/ 17
that he was but a fool in asking that 12, 22/ 18
can stand against us?" % A great comfort it may 12, 23/ 10
is, if we ourselves, a thing either medicinable, or 12, 23/ 12
wit, what manner comfort a man might pray for 12, 23/ 17
other punishment put upon a man for his heinous 12, 24/ 6
where we fall in a sickness following upon our 12, 25/ 1
own gluttonous feasting, or a man that is punished 12, 25/ 2
seem discomfortable, in that a man may be sorry 12, 25/ 5
it were purged here) a far greater punishment after 12, 25/ 10
it), serve him for a sure medicine, to cure 12, 25/ 15
otherwise. For though that a man fall in his 12, 25/ 25
but it shall be a marvelous good medicine and 12, 25/ 31
medicine and work (as a willingly taken pain) the 12, 25/ 32
of necessity, and make a medicine of their malady 12, 26/ 7
trouble meekly, and make a right godly end. Consider 12, 26/ 8
Jericho, whereupon God took a great vengeance upon the 12, 26/ 10
his pain, and died a very good man: which 12, 26/ 21
thus made this thief a good medicine of his 12, 26/ 25
punishment and well-deserved tribulation a very good special medicine 12, 26/ 30
will so make it) a very marvelous wholesome medicine 12, 27/ 1
will so consider it, a great cause of comfort 12, 27/ 3
know that upon such a surfeit we fell in 12, 27/ 18
we fell in such a sickness; or as the 12, 27/ 19
knoweth that for such a certain theft he is 12, 27/ 19
is fallen into such a certain punishment. But yet 12, 27/ 20
as I showed you, a cause of right great 12, 28/ 2
more clear conscience, somewhat a little more comfortable. For 12, 28/ 4
for keeping and preserving a man from such sin 12, 28/ 14
take the comfort of a double medicine, and of 12, 28/ 18
double medicine, and of a thing also that is 12, 28/ 18
If that thing be a good medicine that restoreth 12, 28/ 26
when we lose it; a good medicine must this 12, 28/ 27
after drive us to a painful plaster. Now seeth 12, 28/ 29
false flattering world, set a cross upon the ship 12, 29/ 5
his heart, and bear a low sail thereon, that 12, 29/ 6
good enough, God seeth a storm coming toward her 12, 29/ 8
her fat feeding should a little longer last) strike 12, 29/ 10
lay her abed with a new acquainted knave. But 12, 29/ 11
sendeth her in season a goodly fair fervent fever 12, 29/ 13
he might have caught a foul fall, had not 12, 29/ 24
was his remedy, but a painful tribulation, so sore 12, 29/ 25
is double medicine, both a cure of the sin 12, 30/ 1
the sin past and a preservative from the sin 12, 30/ 1
there good occasion of a double comfort; but that 12, 30/ 3
which is not sent a man for his sin 12, 30/ 12
wit, which is sent a man by God, and 12, 30/ 18
see by what reason a man may in this 12, 30/ 24
twain that are sent a man for his sin 12, 30/ 26
is not without peril a man to think otherwise 12, 31/ 2
be worthy, take yet a great deal more. For 12, 31/ 8
man must confess himself a sinner, yet be there 12, 31/ 10
and without sin have a good hope that God 12, 31/ 12
ANTHONY Marry, Cousin, wheresoever a man falleth in tribulation 12, 32/ 2
should hap to find a man that had long 12, 32/ 4
that had long lived a very virtuous life, and 12, 32/ 4
that if there were a Christian man that had 12, 32/ 20
among those infidels committed a very deadly crime, such 12, 32/ 21
but as I would a malefactor? Nay, this man 12, 32/ 26
had he been before a devil, nothing would I 12, 33/ 8
to take him for a martyr. VINCENT Verily, good 12, 33/ 8
matter. For surely if a man may (as indeed 12, 33/ 20
his conscience, that hath a false crime put upon 12, 33/ 22
justice. VINCENT Then if a man sue me wrongfully 12, 33/ 28
good right, it is a comfort yet to defend 12, 34/ 1
ei et pallium" (If a man will strive with 12, 34/ 9
defend, therefore, of pity, a poor widow, or a 12, 34/ 14
a poor widow, or a poor fatherless child, and 12, 34/ 14
or, if ye be a judge, and will have 12, 34/ 16
the Turks hath yet a far passing comfort, and 12, 35/ 3
third kind above all a special prerogative therein. ANTHONY 12, 35/ 13
of Christ's Passion as a means by which God 12, 35/ 22
our patience therein for a matter of merit and 12, 36/ 6
and good works, as a man willingly performeth enjoined 12, 36/ 18
satisfy so much as a spoonful to a great 12, 36/ 25
as a spoonful to a great vesselful, in comparison 12, 36/ 25
I spoke of before. A certain objection against the 12, 37/ 4
that, and affirm for a sure truth, that there 12, 37/ 12
albeit that it is a right heavy thing to 12, 37/ 24
there three things not a little comfort my mind 12, 38/ 2
together in preparation of a common power in defense 12, 38/ 12
to set so high a price upon so poor 12, 39/ 7
price upon so poor a thing; and that this 12, 39/ 7
no good, but is a servant unprofitable, and doth 12, 39/ 12
lack of perceiving such a sharp subtle thing; especially 12, 39/ 27
at your pleasure. That a man ought to be 12, 40/ 14
well by this, that a man hath great cause 12, 40/ 17
peruse every comfort that a man may well take 12, 40/ 22
ye wot well) may a man take thereof as 12, 40/ 23
so do fare like a fond fellow, that going 12, 41/ 21
be wealthy, would for a tapster's pleasure become an 12, 41/ 23
way and die in a stable, and never come 12, 41/ 24
heaven. There is also a time of sowing, and 12, 42/ 4
time of sowing, and a time of reaping too 12, 42/ 4
we have in heaven a merry laughing harvest for 12, 42/ 7
in wealth, and in a moment of an hour 12, 42/ 27
with one voice in a manner say all one 12, 43/ 25
never interrupted prosperity, have a great cause of fear 12, 43/ 29
on the other side a great cause to take 12, 44/ 3
comfort and spiritual consolation. % A certain objection, and the 12, 44/ 6
ye wot well, not a few, and those are 12, 44/ 11
telleth them would with a true tale jeopard to 12, 45/ 9
great harm, but of a gentle nature doth some 12, 45/ 14
the lowly meekness of a simple sheep, then if 12, 45/ 21
eke, ye wot well, a man of great substance 12, 47/ 16
plain experience, that many a man is right wealthy 12, 47/ 21
right good, and many a man a miserable wretch 12, 47/ 22
and many a man a miserable wretch as evil 12, 47/ 22
those he loveth for a sign of salvation, and 12, 47/ 26
sent for displeasure as a token of eternal damnation 12, 47/ 26
whether every prosperity be a perilous token, but whether 12, 49/ 12
without any tribulation be a fearful sign of God's 12, 49/ 13

the body, as doth a thorn that sticketh in 12, 50/ 23
soliciting the mind of a good man to sin 12, 51/ 9
to sin, is not a great inward trouble and 12, 51/ 10
think this trouble but a trifle, and with such 12, 51/ 19
if himself hap upon a fervent longing for the 12, 51/ 21
he cannot (and as a good man will not 12, 51/ 22
not please him of a pin. And I dare 12, 51/ 26
of falling, that many a good man hath in 12, 51/ 28

their flesh. And when a man so doth, Cousin 12, 52/ 13
so is it though a man do it himself 12, 52/ 19
is either temptation to a good man, or voluntary 12, 52/ 28
say, all his days a marvelous wealthy king, and 12, 53/ 7
well lay it for a proof that God favoreth 12, 53/ 23
sending, to go into a strange land, which God 12, 54/ 10
he gave himself never a foot? Was it no 12, 54/ 11
heaviness to his heart? A man would ween yes 12, 54/ 17
for the meantime? What a continual grief was it 12, 54/ 23
to his heart many a long day, that he 12, 54/ 23
patiently, but (which is a thing much more meritorious 12, 55/ 7
for that he was a special patriarch of the 12, 55/ 10
Cousin, let us look a little longer here upon 12, 55/ 14
that Lazarus might with a drop of water falling 12, 55/ 18
from his finger's end, a little cool and refresh 12, 55/ 19
poor Lazarus hath not a little hindered you. An 12, 56/ 12
as ye do wherefore a man might labor or 12, 56/ 27
him consolation. "Ut non a magnitudine doloris absorbeatur" (that 12, 57/ 28
seeth, loveth God but a little whom he seeth 12, 58/ 11
gracious help. And many a man in his great 12, 58/ 23
to him, we take a good occasion to fall 12, 58/ 29
deep stepped into many a sore sin which sins 12, 59/ 18
man to grace, casteth a remorse into his mind 12, 59/ 20
and maketh him lie a little while and bethink 12, 59/ 21
this worldly wealth within a while behind here in 12, 59/ 23
they sink deep, are a sore tribulation. And surely 12, 60/ 3
be then they find a talk awhile with them 12, 60/ 23
as it were on a pin-bank; then cometh his 12, 61/ 8
to take it for a fable. And yet if 12, 61/ 12
his whole heart like a fool more upon them 12, 61/ 19
battle he sought unto a witch, and besought her 12, 62/ 11
her to raise up a dead man to tell 12, 62/ 12
to the devil, desiring a woman by witchcraft to 12, 62/ 20
many do, that in a great loss send to 12, 62/ 29
loss send to such a conjurer to get their 12, 62/ 30
or his hose to a wise woman, otherwise called 12, 63/ 3
wise woman, otherwise called a witch. Then sendeth she 12, 63/ 4
he was taken with a sprite between two doors 12, 63/ 5
that she enchanted with a charm, and gathered with 12, 63/ 11
hang loose thereat by a green thread: he shall 12, 63/ 13
their souls more faith a great deal, than in 12, 63/ 17
will well agree, that a man may both have 12, 64/ 13
on the other side, a man may be miserable 12, 64/ 15
the devil. And as a man may please God 12, 64/ 16
in prosperity, but rather a great deal less, by 12, 64/ 25
deal less, by in a manner half, since that 12, 64/ 26
besides this also, that a wealthy man well at 12, 65/ 3
man that is not a dull beast, or a 12, 65/ 19
a dull beast, or a desperate wretch, calleth upon 12, 65/ 19
hard it were for a a man to say 12, 65/ 26
it were for a a man to say a 12, 65/ 27
a man to say a long prayer of matins 12, 65/ 27
one inch of such a prayer so prayed in 12, 66/ 7
that pain, was worth a whole ell and more 12, 66/ 7
him, and given him a name which is above 12, 66/ 19
beheld it, made such a fervent commotion in his 12, 67/ 6
comfortable: and that not a little, but in manner 12, 67/ 32
off the one. For a man in prosperity, though 12, 68/ 6
toward them, than for a present pleasure, with which 12, 68/ 15
the while. Now though a man without patience can 12, 68/ 16
thing appeareth by many a place in scripture of 12, 68/ 19
comfort indeed, by which a man hath hope of 12, 68/ 25
far above prosperity, though a man may do well 12, 69/ 1
with no tribulation is a very discomfortable token of 12, 69/ 4
cause of comfort unto a man's heart, in that 12, 69/ 5
to the house of a feast. For in that 12, 69/ 14
house of heaviness is a man put in remembrance 12, 69/ 15
the Old Law as a special gift of God 12, 69/ 25
called "paedagogus," that is, a teacher of children; or 12, 69/ 30
as they call such a one in the grammar 12, 69/ 31
schools), an usher or a master of the petites 12, 69/ 31
though it be indeed a very good wholesome thing 12, 70/ 6
than to be at a feast? Whereto soundeth this 12, 70/ 15
and the heart of a fool is there as 12, 70/ 17
other good deeds that a wealthy man may do 12, 71/ 7
all those virtues of a wealthy man an occasion 12, 71/ 10
merit too, the which a wealthy man hath not 12, 71/ 10
the wealthy man in a like case with the 12, 71/ 15
but secretly liveth in a contrite heart and a 12, 71/ 27
a contrite heart and a life penitential, as many 12, 71/ 27
the prophet David being a great king, so that 12, 71/ 28
himself nothing, then would a very blind man see 12, 72/ 27
you, without any doubt a diminishing of fleshly wealth 12, 73/ 15
fleshly wealth, and is a very true kind, and 12, 73/ 15
thanks therefor but such a man as hath in 12, 73/ 31
hath in that point a very special good mind 12, 73/ 32
difficulty there is by a great deal to be 12, 74/ 10
marvel though Job had a reverent fear unto God 12, 74/ 18
the devil had there a fall in his own 12, 74/ 24
of wealth and prosperity. A summary comfort of tribulation 12, 75/ 4
should be too long a let unto your other 12, 75/ 7
we lay first for a sure ground a very 12, 75/ 7
for a sure ground a very fast faith, whereby 12, 75/ 8
we consider tribulation as a gracious gift of God 12, 75/ 11
gracious gift of God, a gift that he gave 12, 75/ 11
highly commended and praised, a thing whereof the contrary 12, 75/ 13
long continued is perilous, a thing which but if 12, 75/ 14
themselves and seek it, a thing that helpeth to 12, 75/ 15
purge our sins past, a thing that preserveth us 12, 75/ 16
that else would come, a thing that causeth us 12, 75/ 17
less by the world, a thing that exciteth us 12, 75/ 18
draw more toward God, a thing that much diminisheth 12, 75/ 18
our pains in purgatory, a thing that much increaseth 12, 75/ 19
purged. For charity covereth a multitude of sins, and 12, 76/ 25
great grief that for a month's space had held 12, 78/ 7
held you, you were a little before my last 12, 78/ 7
very sorry, and not a little wroth with myself 12, 78/ 15
the contrary: for else a little casting back were 12, 78/ 19
to me little grief. A fond old man is 12, 78/ 23
full of words as a woman. It is, you 12, 78/ 24
well and warm with a cup and a roasted 12, 78/ 25
with a cup and a roasted crab, and drivel 12, 78/ 25
Cousin, many words, if a man were very weak 12, 79/ 18
say the truth) even a little weary, that I 12, 79/ 21
so told you still a long tale alone, but 12, 79/ 22
it did once between a nun and her brother 12, 79/ 29
this lady, and of a very virtuous place, a 12, 80/ 1
a very virtuous place, a close religion, and therein 12, 80/ 1
to give her brother a sermon of the wretchedness 12, 80/ 11
she began to find a little fault with him 12, 80/ 15
so long, and are a doctor, and so learned 12, 80/ 17
am your sister and a simple unlearned soul, give 12, 80/ 19
forsooth, Uncle, this was a merry tale. But now 12, 80/ 28
there was of late a kinswoman of your own 12, 81/ 1
So happened it on a time, that his wife 12, 81/ 5
and then she made a merry quarrel to him 12, 81/ 7
he (as he was a dry merry man), "in 12, 81/ 9
what me list. Whether a man may not in 12, 82/ 5
seemeth somewhat hard. For a merry tale with a 12, 82/ 13
a merry tale with a friend refresheth a man 12, 82/ 14
with a friend refresheth a man much, and without 12, 82/ 14
is called eutrapelia, is a good virtue, serving to 12, 82/ 19
of nature even half a giglot and more. I 12, 83/ 4
refrain it, as old a fool as I am 12, 83/ 6
with him end also: a man to take now 12, 83/ 11
such, that in talking a while thereof, men wax 12, 83/ 19
refresh themselves after with a foolish tale. Our affection 12, 83/ 21
God: but that yet a little sticketh in our 12, 83/ 24
to that point, that a worse thing sometime more 12, 83/ 31

worldly recreation be but a grief to think on 12, 84/ 29
so much comfort in a year, as we should 12, 85/ 1
once to take such a savor in it. And 12, 85/ 5
some way to work, a thing that would require 12, 85/ 14
to the snuff of a candle that burneth within 12, 85/ 20
and yet suddenly lifteth a flame half an inch 12, 85/ 23

faith, Uncle, this was a wonderful thing, and such 12, 88/ 20

hath of his trains a thousand subtle ways, and 12, 101/ 1
he, (my brethren, for a thing of all joy 12, 101/ 12

the scripture saith: "Pete a Deo sapientiam et dabit 12, 102/ 12

hand). The Prophet expresseth a plain comfortable promise of 12, 102/ 25
Surely he that through a good faith abideth in 12, 103/ 3
him. For unto such a faithful, well hoping man 12, 103/ 13
hath every faithful man a sure promise, that in 12, 103/ 16
kind of temptation to a good man that fighteth 12, 103/ 21
not follow it, is a very painful tribulation. In 12, 103/ 21
putteth his shoulders for a defense between. And then 12, 103/ 26
and saith unto such a faithful man, "et sub 12, 103/ 29

is yet of truth a conscience little too strait 12, 114/ 12
little too strait, than a little too large. My 12, 114/ 13
had, when I was a little boy, a good 12, 114/ 14
was a little boy, a good old woman that 12, 114/ 14
that some good thing a man may pick out 12, 114/ 22
the wolf came upon a time to confession to 12, 114/ 26
shrift in the Shrovetide, a day or two before 12, 114/ 27
his shrift he had a marvelous grudge in his 12, 115/ 6
day given his master a cause of anger, in 12, 115/ 8

still and sleep like a good son himself, till 12, 115/ 11
ass's confession, it were a long work, for everything 12, 115/ 14
while at breakfast with a good fat goose. But 12, 115/ 19
he was so great a ravener, that he devoured 12, 116/ 18
him, and preached him a process of his own 12, 116/ 22
value of sixpence at a meal, no nor yet 12, 116/ 24
when I bring home a goose," quoth he, "not 12, 116/ 25
night to take at a venture, and when I 12, 117/ 1

much, and measure is a merry mean, which I 12, 117/ 10
price of sixpence at a meal, as near as 12, 117/ 13
he waxed ahungered, saw a sow lie with her 12, 117/ 17
fell he yet in a far further scruple; for 12, 117/ 25
his meat, and was a right honest ass many 12, 117/ 33
right honest ass many a fair day after. The 12, 117/ 33
about to do, as a shrewd wife once told 12, 118/ 2
about, he came where a man had in few 12, 118/ 25
looked aside, he spied a fair cow in a 12, 119/ 4
a fair cow in a close walking with her 12, 119/ 5
horse of likelihood worth a great deal of money 12, 119/ 14
nor can scant shift a foot. And therefore, I 12, 119/ 16
conscience worth not past a groat, and she be 12, 119/ 21
would, I ween, tell a tale almost as wise 12, 119/ 29
Maud's tale, else would a shorter process have served 12, 119/ 30
the night's fear of a conscience somewhat scrupulous, though 12, 119/ 32
less harm yet, than a conscience overlarge, or such 12, 120/ 2
after the manner of a cheverel point, to serve 12, 120/ 4
must do as doth a ship that should come 12, 120/ 12
out: he must get a substantial, cunning pilot that 12, 120/ 16
his advice. Yea, although a man be very well-learned 12, 120/ 22
in his own passion a great deal more than 12, 121/ 1
say, whoso hath such a trouble of his scrupulous 12, 121/ 14
conscience, let him for a while forbear the judgment 12, 121/ 15
bade, and think for a while less of the 12, 121/ 20
where the devil tempteth a man to kill and 12, 122/ 14
temptation is of such a sort, that some men 12, 122/ 17
well worthy: but many a good man and woman 12, 122/ 23
marked have I not a little the manner of 12, 123/ 6
that it is rather a thing that cometh of 12, 123/ 12
thing that cometh of a great courage and boldness 12, 123/ 12
thereto by means of a foolish pride, and some 12, 123/ 30
that they have all a strong mighty stomach: that 12, 124/ 3
need, in so great a distress and peril both 12, 124/ 10
in King Ladislaus' days, a good, poor, honest man's 12, 124/ 15
her. VINCENT This was a strange temptation indeed. What 12, 124/ 21
more such stomachs than a few. Have you never 12, 124/ 27
some such man have a mischief, he would with 12, 125/ 1
husband (the man was a carpenter) stood hewing with 12, 125/ 10
with his chip-axe upon a piece of timber, she 12, 125/ 10
his chip-axe, and at a chop chopped off her 12, 125/ 23
folk by, which had a good sport to hear 12, 125/ 24
one, and that was a woman, and she said 12, 125/ 29
VINCENT Forsooth, this was a wonderful work. What became 12, 126/ 2
there should have been a statute made, that in 12, 126/ 10
as it, and within a little as good as 12, 126/ 18
one thing, she was a full blessed woman. But 12, 126/ 23
among other talking, that a rich widow (but I 12, 127/ 14
high proud mind and a fell, as those two 12, 127/ 16
the town, and on a time she made of 12, 127/ 18
made of her counsel a poor neighbor of hers 12, 127/ 18
for her as in a morning early to come 12, 127/ 21
should be taken for a martyr. And yet had 12, 127/ 26
the edge, and found a fault that it was 12, 128/ 9
VINCENT Forsooth, here was a tragical story, whereof I 12, 128/ 17
he knew it for a truth. And himself is 12, 128/ 20
letted not, as shameful a mind as she had 12, 128/ 22
kind of temptation to a man's own destruction, which 12, 129/ 3
which he reckoned for a revelation. The Sixteenth Chapter 12, 129/ 7
that was many days a very special holy man 12, 129/ 14
I spoke of, wherein a good part of the 12, 130/ 5
name of virtue in a reasonable creature, can never 12, 130/ 10
heart and fear, wherein a good part of the 12, 130/ 26
knew him, reputed for a man of singular virtue 12, 131/ 3
first fashion, it were a token that the devil 12, 131/ 12
him up in such a peevish pride, that he 12, 131/ 13
himself. VINCENT Now if a man so found it 12, 131/ 18
Uncle? What counsel should a man give him then 12, 131/ 18
matter speaketh, but in a perilous merry mortal temptation 12, 131/ 23
too, we might make a longer work between both 12, 131/ 25
as it were in a delectable dream he should 12, 132/ 3
to rise. But when a man hath first begun 12, 132/ 9
better please him with a commendation than with a 12, 132/ 10
a commendation than with a dirge), then after favor 12, 132/ 11
after favor won therewithal, a man may a little 12, 132/ 11
therewithal, a man may a little and little insinuate 12, 132/ 11
Or if you were a man that had not 12, 132/ 17
sure and undeceivable tokens a man may discern the 12, 133/ 4
the false illusions, whereof a man shall find many 12, 133/ 5
in that mind by a certain apparition showed unto 12, 134/ 12
no true revelation, but a very false illusion. VINCENT 12, 135/ 6
well allow this, that a man should as well 12, 135/ 9
man good, seek such a pleasant way as the 12, 135/ 11
him, that in such a point or such, he 12, 135/ 23
profitable. For that is a good mark between God's 12, 136/ 3
fruitful end, but to a fruitless ostentation and show 12, 136/ 6
show, as it were a juggler that would, for 12, 136/ 7
juggler that would, for a show before the people 12, 136/ 7
people, play masteries at a feast. Of the law 12, 136/ 8
is now by such a marvelous vision induced to 12, 136/ 21
an illusion, and not a true revelation? ANTHONY Nay 12, 136/ 25
scripture of God for a ground for this matter 12, 137/ 1
you shall go somewhat a shorter way to work 12, 137/ 2
himself God, and with a marvelous vision delude one 12, 137/ 5
question for him. May a man, Uncle, have in 12, 137/ 13
Uncle, have in such a thing even a very 12, 137/ 13
such a thing even a very sure knowledge in 12, 137/ 13
deceived indeed. And such a difference is there in 12, 137/ 19
difference is there in a manner between them, as 12, 137/ 19
between the sight of a thing while we be 12, 137/ 20
with which we see a thing in our sleep 12, 137/ 21
thereof. VINCENT This is a pretty similitude, Uncle, in 12, 137/ 24
knoweth his vision for a true revelation and not 12, 137/ 26
true revelation and not a false delusion, if there 12, 137/ 26
know it is not a false illusion; then shall 12, 140/ 19
his private revelation) is a thing of such sort 12, 141/ 1
by force, ran into a water and drowned themselves 12, 141/ 25
him to come by a forbidden way, by which 12, 142/ 12
his intent riseth upon a true revelation, and not 12, 142/ 16
revelation, and not upon a false illusion, he would 12, 142/ 17
thereof is in waking a daily common thing that 12, 142/ 23
he knoweth in such a rare thing, and a 12, 143/ 2
a rare thing, and a thing more like a 12, 143/ 2
a thing more like a dream, that himself is 12, 143/ 3
than you in such a common thing among folk 12, 143/ 3
so seldom happing in a dream, should need to 12, 143/ 5
he knoweth it for a true waking revelation, and 12, 143/ 12
waking revelation, and not a false dreaming delusion VINCENT 12, 143/ 13
sure, that it is a true revelation, as that 12, 143/ 17
take, his dream for a very truth, and as 12, 143/ 23
common tale goeth, that a carver's wife in such 12, 143/ 27
carver's wife in such a frantic fantasy helped her 12, 143/ 28
when he would upon a Good Friday needs have 12, 144/ 1
crucify him herself on a great cross, that he 12, 144/ 10
had made to nail a new carved crucifix upon 12, 144/ 11
Christ was bound to a pillar and beaten first 12, 144/ 13
bound him fast to a post, she left not 12, 144/ 14
drive it well down, a crown of thorns that 12, 144/ 17
make him toward such a purpose first gladly to 12, 145/ 1
take his fantasy for a true revelation, yet since 12, 145/ 15
then were he in a sore tribulation, and a 12, 146/ 1
a sore tribulation, and a very perilous: for then 12, 146/ 1
for then were it a token, that the devil 12, 146/ 2
through fear, and in a weariness of this life 12, 146/ 6
then to fall for a remedy against overbold pride 12, 146/ 19
high bold courage took a foul fall, and yet 12, 146/ 25
Uncle, that this were a perilous thing. For it 12, 147/ 12
indeed. But, Cousin, if a cunning physician have a 12, 147/ 19
a cunning physician have a man in hand, he 12, 147/ 19
final destruction of himself a good, wise, spiritual leech 12, 148/ 10
been long reputed for a right honest man, which 12, 148/ 26
was fallen in such a fantasy, that he was 12, 149/ 1
to take him for a fool. And folk, of 12, 149/ 6
VINCENT This is, Uncle, a marvelous strange manner. ANTHONY 12, 149/ 18
adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about 12, 149/ 23
he casteth sometimes such a fearful imagination in their 12, 150/ 15
have not only had a great abomination thereat (which 12, 150/ 18
to conceive therewith such a deep dread beside, that 12, 150/ 22
Some have, with holding a knife in their hand 12, 150/ 29
do, have fallen in a fear that they should 12, 151/ 3
useth the blood of a man's own body toward 12, 151/ 8
the casting of such a desperate dread into his 12, 151/ 11
that I would advise a man to take counsel 12, 151/ 28
to take counsel of a physician for the body 12, 152/ 1
the body in such a spiritual passion. For since 12, 152/ 1
shriven and seek of a good spiritual physician the 12, 152/ 7
well: but that is a special token that shrift 12, 153/ 2
them, he hath thereby a good token that he 12, 153/ 22
his merit, and of a right great reward in 12, 153/ 27
of help. Resist must a man for his own 12, 154/ 3
with reason, considering what a folly it were to 12, 154/ 4
must also consider, that a great part of this 12, 154/ 10
man shall upon such a bridge, if folk call 12, 154/ 17
if it were but a foot from the ground 12, 154/ 21
that it is indeed a part of a wise 12, 155/ 1
indeed a part of a wise warrior's fight, to 12, 155/ 1
enemies' trains), so must a man in this temptation 12, 155/ 2
full contempt thereof, making a cross upon their hearts 12, 155/ 6
that follow, which is a prayer in the Church 12, 155/ 21
in the time of a great pestilence in Rome 12, 155/ 24
fugiant qui oderunt eum a facie eius" and many 12, 156/ 19
tentationem, sed libera nos a malo." And I doubt 12, 156/ 26
he that in such a temptation will use good 12, 156/ 27
compass him about with a pavise, that he shall 12, 156/ 31
words of the Prophet: "A sagitta volante in die 12, 157/ 4

do more than counterpoise a great part of all 12, 210/ 14

of his own drawing a certain treaty, that should 12, 217/ 20

a friend of his, a man well-learned, and of 12, 217/ 24
thereof he told him a fault therein. At the 12, 218/ 1

that they may bear a rule, command and control 12, 219/ 18

man that is in a great office, commandeth fewer 12, 220/ 22

And I wist once a great officer of the 12, 221/ 8

that standeth sometimes for a farthing, is suddenly set 12, 222/ 11
up and standeth for a thousand pounds, and after 12, 222/ 12
beneath to stand for a farthing again: so fareth 12, 222/ 13

ever there hangeth in a man's heart a loathness 12, 240/ 15
in a man's heart a loathness to lack a 12, 240/ 16
a loathness to lack a living. ANTHONY There doth 12, 240/ 16
idle tale, rather for a pastime, or for the 12, 240/ 20
Savior Christ is not a poet's fable, nor an 12, 240/ 24
when he causeth like a good husbandman his folk 12, 241/ 5

that if there were a great king that had 12, 243/ 9
so tender love to a servant of his, that 12, 243/ 9

compass us about with a pavise, that we shall 12, 244/ 15

so suddenly fainted at a woman's word and so 12, 245/ 3
well worthy to take a fall for putting so 12, 245/ 7

compass us about with a pavise, that we shall 12, 248/ 2
but will both provide a way out for us 12, 248/ 14
in the meanwhile with a good hope in the 12, 248/ 30
of God's grace, have a good purpose with us 12, 248/ 31
get ourselves of God a very good, cheap thanks 12, 249/ 11
driven to flight, what a shame should this be 12, 249/ 19
Uncle, that captivity is a marvelous heavy thing, namely 12, 250/ 23
far from home, into a strange uncouth land. ANTHONY 12, 250/ 24
if my transmigration into a strange country should be 12, 251/ 6
to me then for a while so strange, shall 12, 251/ 23
that I find it a great pain, that I 12, 251/ 27
somewhat, I may say a great deal) the more 12, 252/ 4
former liberty for more a great deal, than indeed 12, 252/ 5
the violent restraint of a man, being so subdued 12, 252/ 8
be carried away with a Turk, and be fain 12, 252/ 11
let our liberty but a little neither, were it 12, 252/ 27
sin. Which to be a very bondage, I shall 12, 253/ 10
it for so sore a thing and so strange 12, 253/ 16
of war bound unto a man, while he is 12, 253/ 17
of any so vile a villain, that ever would 12, 253/ 24
grief Seneca teacheth us a good remedy: "Semper da 12, 254/ 6

of a bondman or a slave), rather than his 12, 254/ 23

Albeit that bondage is a condition that every man 12, 255/ 3

imprisonment may fall to a man, and none of 12, 256/ 21
itself any less than a thing very tedious, all 12, 257/ 1
Uncle, if it were a great prince that were 12, 257/ 3
in the hand of a Christian king, which use 12, 257/ 4
by the example of a prince taken prisoner, were 12, 257/ 11
grief in itself for a man to be pinned 12, 257/ 13
up, though not in a narrow chamber, but although 12, 257/ 13
but the retaining of a man's person within the 12, 257/ 21
within the circuit of a certain space, narrower or 12, 257/ 22
if imprisonment be such a thing as yourself here 12, 258/ 14
is to wit, but a lack of liberty to 12, 258/ 15
how much good to a man's soul the personal 12, 259/ 7
VINCENT That were, Uncle, a strange case. For every 12, 259/ 14
reckon imprisonment so small a matter of itself), the 12, 259/ 17
better case, than is a king kept in prison 12, 259/ 18
liberty to go where a man will, be imprisonment 12, 259/ 24
much better case than a king kept in prison 12, 260/ 2
case not only than a prince in prison, but 12, 260/ 4
but also than many a prince out of a 12, 260/ 5
a prince out of a prison too. For I 12, 260/ 5
sure there is many a beggar that may without 12, 260/ 6
men's ground, than many a prince at his best 12, 260/ 7
you grant it is) a lack of liberty to 12, 260/ 15
but that he is a prisoner for all that 12, 260/ 26
pass by, that though a prisoner were with his 12, 261/ 6
were, ye wot well, a prisoner still; and letting 12, 261/ 9
other prisoners, enclosed within a castle, and we shall 12, 261/ 18
and long not (like a woman with child for 12, 261/ 20
his free liberty, but a prisoner still: so since 12, 261/ 27
commonly called imprisonment, is a thing of great horror 12, 262/ 5
conclude me, than induce a credence and persuade me 12, 262/ 16
to your mind but a trifle and a sophistical 12, 262/ 29
but a trifle and a sophistical fantasy, myself have 12, 262/ 29
shall here between us a little more consider the 12, 263/ 6
every man universally is a very prisoner in very 12, 263/ 17
of, than is many a lewd simple wretch, by 12, 263/ 20
troth, if there were a man attainted of treason 12, 264/ 2
and put up in a sure place, out of 12, 264/ 6
escape, were this man a prisoner or no? VINCENT 12, 264/ 7
that the place were a great castle royal, with 12, 264/ 18
and other pleasures therein a very great circuit about 12, 264/ 19
you call this man? A prisoner, because he is 12, 264/ 26
is all that while a very plain prisoner still 12, 265/ 8
Cousin, to tell me a little further. If there 12, 265/ 11
laid in prison for a fray, and through the 12, 265/ 12
fettered, and laid in a low dungeon in the 12, 265/ 13
to lie peradventure for a while, and abide in 12, 265/ 14
death. Is this, Cousin, a fond imagined fantasy, or 12, 266/ 24
no imagination, Uncle, but a thing so clearly proved 12, 267/ 2
Which is yet more a little now, than I 12, 267/ 7
proof yet but for a sophistical fantasy, and said 12, 267/ 8
that every man is a prisoner, yet you thought 12, 267/ 9
is else no man a very prisoner indeed. And 12, 267/ 10
ordinance of God in a place, be it never 12, 267/ 13
it never so large, a place, I say, yet 12, 267/ 14
granting before, every man a very prisoner, when he 12, 267/ 18
he is put in a place to be kept 12, 267/ 18
wot well, true, although a man should be but 12, 267/ 24
but if he be a fool he can never 12, 268/ 7
into the ground in a foul pit, within some 12, 268/ 16
soul out further unto a more fearful judgment, whereof 12, 268/ 18
execution of death, is a very plain imprisonment indeed 12, 268/ 24
his wealth, than many a man is by the 12, 268/ 26
put, peradventure but for a light fray; but his 12, 269/ 7
well as he. If a man condemned to death 12, 269/ 10
were put up in a large prison, and while 12, 269/ 11
fellows, put up in a strait place (part of 12, 269/ 12
beside that narrow prison, a prisoner of the broad 12, 269/ 17
you therefore thought but a fantasy sophistical to prove 12, 269/ 22
whole kind of man a very plain prison indeed 12, 269/ 24
lords and possessioners of a very great parcel thereof 12, 269/ 27
tell you seem but a sophistical fantasy to your 12, 270/ 8

all put here into a sure hold to be 12, 270/ 18
Uncle, deny. ANTHONY If a man be, Cousin, committed 12, 272/ 2
friends to pay for a pennyworth of ease. Else 12, 272/ 6
of this favor for a time we wax, as 12, 272/ 28
in this prison many a man reputed right honest 12, 273/ 12
state (which is but a wandering about for a 12, 273/ 19
a wandering about for a while in this prison 12, 273/ 19
he forbeareth yet unto a farther time, even as 12, 273/ 27
shut him up in a chamber either. ANTHONY Is 12, 274/ 10
he that playeth on a lute? He may be 12, 274/ 14
lute? He may be a minstrel and make melody 12, 274/ 14
at his ease in a warm bed, as the 12, 274/ 21
by the brows with a megrim, he collareth them 12, 274/ 22
by the neck with a quinsy, he bolteth them 12, 274/ 23
by the arms with a palsy, that they cannot 12, 274/ 24

feet for stumbling at a stone; while God's prisoner 12, 275/ 5
gout, lieth groaning on a couch, and quaketh and 12, 275/ 7
foot no more but a cushion. And therefore, Cousin 12, 275/ 8
of the whole earth a place in which the 12, 275/ 10
and brought up in a prison, that never came 12, 275/ 14
fail to be in a straiter prison than we 12, 275/ 29
now, and to have a door shut upon us 12, 275/ 29
our fantasy frameth us a false opinion, by which 12, 276/ 9
be, and imprisonment for a stranger thing to us 12, 276/ 12
that in so great a cause as to suffer 12, 276/ 17
think upon them. Many a good man there is 12, 276/ 20
much like, and, in a manner all close religious 12, 276/ 26
room is less than a meetly large chamber; and 12, 276/ 27
And indeed I wist a woman once, that came 12, 277/ 6
once, that came into a prison to visit of 12, 277/ 6
visit of her charity a poor prisoner there, whom 12, 277/ 7
whom she found in a chamber (to say the 12, 277/ 7
cause ought to move a Christian man, and the 12, 277/ 26
twain is so very a childish fantasy, that in 12, 277/ 27
childish fantasy, that in a matter almost of three 12, 277/ 28
as they be, many a man endureth them; yea 12, 278/ 3
them; yea and many a woman too, that after 12, 278/ 3
warning to be at a point, rather utterly to 12, 278/ 7
same haply but for a short while neither, and 12, 278/ 20
also with the temptation a way out). But now 12, 279/ 2
suffer us to live a while here upon earth 12, 279/ 6
no man abide but a while. In prison was 12, 279/ 11
easier prison, fall into a worse, and instead of 12, 280/ 12
worse, and instead of a prison that cannot keep 12, 280/ 12
imprint, and also disposeth a man many times to 12, 282/ 5
by itself alone, as a bare leaving of this 12, 283/ 2
VINCENT Without doubt, Uncle, a great deal the less 12, 283/ 9
I wot well, many a man would be for 12, 283/ 11
is no blacker than a crow, with many other 12, 283/ 21
that manner loathness (albeit a very good will gladly 12, 284/ 3
VINCENT That were, Uncle, a very strange case. ANTHONY 12, 284/ 11
kept from his childhood a bag full of cherrystones 12, 285/ 16
cherrystones, and cast such a fantasy thereto, that he 12, 285/ 16
go from it, for a bigger bag filled full 12, 285/ 17
Cousin, as Aesop telleth a fable that the snail 12, 285/ 19
of the earth to a great solemn feast that 12, 285/ 21
upon what occasion) upon a time to prepare for 12, 285/ 22
and should have seen a goodly palace, and been 12, 285/ 26
for the pleasure of a better man, nor for 12, 286/ 11
for the gaining of a better thing. By which 12, 286/ 11
of soberness left in a drunken head, when he 12, 287/ 8
to bed, so if a fool perceive himself a 12, 287/ 9
a fool perceive himself a fool, that point is 12, 287/ 9
is no folly but a little spark of wit 12, 287/ 10
without them in such a case as this is 12, 288/ 5
life we should find a far better; mine own 12, 288/ 6
broad high street of a great long city, and 12, 289/ 11
side of the way a rabble of ragged beggars 12, 289/ 12
you should come by a goodly company standing in 12, 289/ 17
goodly company standing in a fair range, a row 12, 289/ 17
in a fair range, a row of wise and 12, 289/ 17
on your way with a good cheer and a 12, 289/ 22
a good cheer and a glad heart, thinking yourself 12, 289/ 22
folk, and not regard a rush the railing of 12, 289/ 27
the sight here of a few worldly wretches, it 12, 290/ 5
rabbles. And now if a man would be so 12, 290/ 11
then with fleeing from a shadow of shame, he 12, 290/ 13
he should fall into a very shame and a 12, 290/ 14
a very shame and a deadly painful shame indeed 12, 290/ 14
hath our Savior made a sure promise, that he 12, 290/ 15
angels.) And what manner a shameful shame shall that 12, 290/ 22
that be then? If a man's cheeks glow sometimes 12, 290/ 23
good. For it is a manner among them in 12, 291/ 11
now whensoever they find a servant such, as he 12, 291/ 15
every man accounteth for a proud unthrift, never like 12, 291/ 18
then they gave him a reed in his hand 12, 291/ 26
in his hand for a scepter, and kneeled down 12, 291/ 27
and saluted him like a king in scorn, and 12, 292/ 1
than for fear of a short worldly shame, to 12, 292/ 8
I perceive well enough, a man may with wisdom 12, 292/ 18
in every country become a common proverb, that shame 12, 292/ 19
cause, Cousin, for which a man may have his 12, 293/ 2
But reason may make a reasonable man (though he 12, 293/ 4
you wot, to take a sour and a bitter 12, 293/ 12
take a sour and a bitter potion is great 12, 293/ 12
shall be ministered unto a child, or to some 12, 293/ 14
lack of discretion. But a man that hath more 12, 293/ 18
be sufficient to move a man to take pain 12, 293/ 24
yet endurable but for a short season: why should 12, 293/ 27
undoubtedly, when folk for a good mind in God's 12, 294/ 1
in the beginning for a ground), words, I say 12, 294/ 16
that Aesop telleth of a great old hart that 12, 294/ 18
that had fled from a little bitch, which had 12, 294/ 19
hunteth is more than a mile behind her, and 12, 295/ 1
and she is but a little body scant half 12, 295/ 2
tell whether among them a bitch be a bitch 12, 295/ 24
them a bitch be a bitch or no, but 12, 295/ 24
is no bitch, but a brach. This is an 12, 295/ 25
an high point in a low house. Beware of 12, 295/ 25
another hunting term. At a fox it is called 12, 295/ 26
make no matter of a fart.) ANTHONY Cousin, in 12, 296/ 2
like an horse and a mule, that hath no 12, 296/ 18
up our stomachs with a surfeit of worldly vanities 12, 296/ 24
all that, and in a manner a momentary pain 12, 296/ 28
and in a manner a momentary pain. VINCENT Every 12, 296/ 28
of late, where such a reason was made, as 12, 297/ 10
late, as I say, a man answer it thus 12, 297/ 12
He said, that if a man in this persecution 12, 297/ 12
nevertheless in his heart, a man may save himself 12, 297/ 19
reason, Cousin, is like a three-footed stool, so tottering 12, 297/ 23
thereon may soon take a foul fall. For these 12, 297/ 24
hope. First, it is a fantastical fear, that the 12, 297/ 26
as though that, if a man by pain were 12, 298/ 2
the more pain that a man taketh for God's 12, 298/ 7
this tottering stool, is a false faith. For it 12, 298/ 18
For it is but a feigned faith for a 12, 298/ 19
a feigned faith for a man to say to 12, 298/ 19
hope of forgiving, is a very false pestilent hope 12, 299/ 3
false pestilent hope, wherewith a man flattereth himself toward 12, 299/ 4
destruction. He that in a sudden braid for fear 12, 299/ 6
sore fear, that such a man may miss the 12, 299/ 13
the offender in such a kind shall have the 12, 299/ 16
overcome and vanquished upon a sudden fear. And yet 12, 300/ 1
delay his trouble but a little while, you wot 12, 300/ 3
ween, I might in a manner well warrant that 12, 300/ 12
much ease. For evermore a violent death is painful 12, 301/ 2
he shall not avoid a violent death thereby. For 12, 301/ 4
bring him shortly to a death as violent by 12, 301/ 5
reckon that whoso dieth a natural death, dieth like 12, 301/ 7
natural death, dieth like a wanton even at his 12, 301/ 8
You make me remember a man that was once 12, 301/ 9
that was once in a galley subtle with us 12, 301/ 9
call commonly natural is a violent death to every 12, 301/ 23
together into so short a time as a man 12, 302/ 1
short a time as a man hath his pain 12, 302/ 1
his pain that dieth a violent death; it would 12, 302/ 1
he suffer it in a longer time. And then 12, 302/ 4
And then would many a man be more loath 12, 302/ 4
in pain, than with a sharper to be sooner 12, 302/ 5
And yet lieth many a man more days than 12, 302/ 7
half an hour; except a man would ween that 12, 302/ 9
is great, to have a knife cut his flesh 12, 302/ 10
they that lie in a pleurisy think that every 12, 302/ 17
they cough, they feel a sharp sword swap them 12, 302/ 18
natural death more painful a thousand times. For his 12, 303/ 1
body and soul with a death ever dying, and 12, 303/ 19
good God! Cousin, if a man would well weigh 12, 303/ 23
esteem him not at a straw, but well content 12, 303/ 27
never come an end. A woeful death is that 12, 304/ 3
stead thereof into pain a thousand thousand times more 12, 304/ 13
make, I think, many a martyr. The consideration of 12, 304/ 26
surely, Cousin, that many a man and woman too 12, 305/ 13
in our hearts such a fervent longing for them 12, 307/ 1
shine, he, nor like a spark of fire to 12, 307/ 11
every man hath among a certain shadow of experience 12, 307/ 24
the fervent grief of a sore painful sickness, while 12, 307/ 25
abomination sickness hath here a shadow) for which voluptuous 12, 308/ 1
little by, have there a glimmering, though far from 12, 308/ 5
glimmering, though far from a perfect sight: oh, good 12, 308/ 6
feeble and so faint a feeling, and our dull 12, 308/ 15
conceive so much as a shadow of the right 12, 308/ 16
of the right imagination. A shadow I say: for 12, 308/ 16
being no more but a man) cannot, I ween 12, 308/ 27
virtuous, are yet in a manner as far therefrom 12, 308/ 29
for his sake, many a special kind of joy 12, 309/ 11
I will give him a white suffrage, and in 12, 309/ 21
and in his suffrage a new name written, which 12, 309/ 22
overcometh he will give a white suffrage. For those 12, 310/ 1
the suffrage give him a new name, which no 12, 310/ 5
I will make him a pillar in the temple 12, 310/ 7
I been in shipwreck: a day and a night 12, 310/ 23
shipwreck: a day and a night was I in 12, 310/ 23
and as short as a moment in respect of 12, 311/ 5
conceive in our minds a right imagination and remembrance 12, 312/ 12
his holy heart with a sharp spear, at which 12, 312/ 30
is it not then a wonderful shame for us 12, 313/ 22
dwell with her: such a lover would not let 12, 313/ 30
him, had so deep a place in our breast 12, 314/ 21
another way, that as a man hurt in a 12, 314/ 25
a man hurt in a fray feeleth not sometimes 12, 314/ 25
all at once in a shout, with trumpets, tabrets 12, 315/ 10
therewith, to make us a fearful noise, if yon 12, 315/ 12
so compass us with a pavise, that of this 12, 316/ 3

persecution (for it seemeth a proud high mind to 12, 316/ 23
