Halaman 45 - Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
Halaman 105 - Vegetius, to train young soldiers, by slight and small skirmishes, for more valorous and haughty proceedings. For such a shadowed kind of contention doth open the way and give courage unto them to argue matters in public place and courts of record.

Halaman 67 - In them he shall see notable arguments, well worthy of pains and consideration. The two late reporters are Mr. Plowden, and Sir James Dyer, who, by a several and distinct kind of discourse, have both labored to profit posterity. Some humors do more fancy Plowden for his fulness of argument, and plain kind of proof; others do more like Dyer for his strictness and brevity.

Neither is it safe to trust to other men's abridgments, which are little available to such as have read a little ; but that which we by our own sweat and labor do gain, we do firmly retain, and in it we do principally delight.
Halaman 54 - Alcibiadis whose outward feature was deformed and ugly, but within they were full of jewels and precious stones: so the words of the law, though they be rude in sound, yet are they pregnant in sense.
Halaman 114 - ... do gaine, we do firmly retain, and in it we do principally delight ; and I am persuaded that there hath never been any learned in the law and judicial, who hath not made a collection of his own, though he hath not neglected the abridgments of others.
Halaman 67 - Judgement of a great state-man, the soundnesse of a deepe phylosopher, and the skil of a cunning ciuilian : learning in him hath shewed all her force, and he is therefore admirable, because he is absolute.
