    Obviously Jonson was brave, combative, and not averse to talking of himself and his doings.
    In 1592, Jonson returned from abroad penniless.

    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."

    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. 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!

    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.

    ANA. I do defy
    The wicked Mammon, so do all the brethren,
    Thou profane man! I ask thee with what conscience
    Thou canst advance that idol against us,
    That have the seal? were not the shillings number'd,
    That made the pounds; were not the pounds told out,
    Upon the second day of the fourth week,
    In the eighth month, upon the table dormant,
    The year of the last patience of the saints,
    Six hundred and ten?
    Leonie Stofferhar citeretfor 2 år siden
    ANA. To bear away the portion of the righteous
    Out of this den of thieves.
