Page 101 - CONSCIENCE, what art thou ? thou tremendous power ! Who dost inhabit us without our leave ; And art within ourselves, another self, A master-self, that loves to domineer, And treat the monarch frankly as the slave : How dost thou light a torch to distant deeds ?

Page 270 - I can no longer remain here but as a cypher, or be a prisoner to the prince of Orange, and you know there is but a small distance between the prisons and the graves of kings ; therefore I go for France immediately. When there, you shall have my instructions. You, lord Balcarres, shall have a commission to manage my civil affairs ; and you, lord Dundee, to command my troops in Scotland.
Page 190 - And so home, it being mighty pleasure to go alone with my poor wife in a coach of our own to a play, and makes us appear mighty great, I think, in the world; at least, greater than ever I could, or my friends for me, have once expected ; or, I think, than ever any of my family ever yet lived in my memory, but my cosen Pepys in Salisbury Court.
