第 81 頁 - Philosophy is odious and obscure, Both law and physic are for petty wits ; Divinity is basest of the three, Unpleasant, harsh, contemptible, and vile: 'Tis magic, magic that hath ravished me.
第 83 頁 - Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it. Think'st thou that I, who saw the face of God, And tasted the eternal joys of heaven, Am not tormented with ten thousand hells, In being depriv'd of everlasting bliss ?

第 333 頁 - Do you think I fable with you ? I assure you, He that has once the flower of the sun, The perfect ruby, which we call elixir, Not only can do that, but by its virtue, Can confer honour, love, respect, long life; Give safety, valour, yea, and victory, To whom he will. In eight and twenty days, I'll make an old man of fourscore, a child.
