The Alchemist

  • Moulibrata Sarkarhas quoted6 years ago
    Obviously Jonson was brave, combative, and not averse to talking of himself and his doings.
    In 1592, Jonson returned from abroad penniless.

    Doth so pos‍­sess a man, that it doth draw

    All his af‍­fects, his spir‍­its, and his powers,

    In their con‍­fluc‍­tions, all to run one way."

    "All that I am in arts, all that I know;"
  • Leonie Stofferhas quoted4 years ago
    An old man's gravity, or strict canon, think
    What a young wife and a good brain may do;
    Stretch age's truth sometimes, and crack it too.
    Speak for thy self, knave."
  • Leonie Stofferhas quoted4 years ago
    That master
    That had received such happiness by a servant,
    In such a widow, and with so much wealth,
    Were very ungrateful, if he would not be
    A little indulgent to that servant's wit,
    And help his fortune, though with some small strain
    Of his own candour.

    KAS. Yes, an thou canst take tobacco and drink, old boy,
    I'll give her five hundred pound more to her marriage,
    Than her own state.
  • Leonie Stofferhas quoted4 years ago
    KAS. 'Slight, I must love him! I cannot choose, i'faith,
    An I should be hang'd for't! Suster, I protest,
    I honour thee for this match
  • Leonie Stofferhas quoted4 years ago
    KAS. Come on, you ewe, you have match'd most sweetly,
    have you not?
    Did not I say, I would never have you tupp'd
    But by a dubb'd boy, to make you a lady-tom?
    'Slight, you are a mammet! O, I could touse you, now.
    Death, mun' you marry, with a pox!
  • Leonie Stofferhas quoted4 years ago
    ANA. I am strong,
    And will stand up, well girt, against an host
    That threaten Gad in exile.
  • Leonie Stofferhas quoted4 years ago
    LOVE. Mine earnest vehement botcher,
    And deacon also, I cannot dispute with you:
    But if you get you not away the sooner,
    I shall confute you with a cudgel.
