Sivu 21 - it is my act, my hand, my heart. I beseech your Lordships to be merciful to a broken reed.
Sivu 6 - EPITAPH. ON THE COUNTESS OF PEMBROKE. UNDERNEATH this sable hearse Lies the subject of all verse, Sidney's sister, Pembroke's mother : Death, ere thou hast slain another, Fair, and learned, and good as she, Time shall throw a dart at thee.
Sivu 39 - Before the battle begun, he was carried through all the ranks of his army in an open litter, as they stood drawn up in array, encouraging them to fight valiantly in defence of their religion and country. Finding afterwards the battle to go against him, though he was very near his last agonies, he threw himself out of his litter, rallied his army, and led them on to the charge ; which afterwards ended in a complete victory on the side of the Moors.
Sivu 39 - ... people in case he should die before he put an end to that war, he commanded his principal officers, that, if he died during the engagement, they should conceal his death from the army, and that they should ride up to the litter in which his corpse was carried, under pretence of receiving orders from him as usual.

Sivu 5 - He was not only a great favourer of learned and ingenious men, but was himself learned, and endowed to admiration with a poetical geny, as by those amorous and not inelegant aires and poems of his composition doth evidently appear; some of which had musical notes set to them by Hen.
Sivu 102 - ... je vous vois, vous m'êtes présente ; je pense et repense à tout ; ma tête et mon esprit se creusent : mais j'ai beau tourner, j'ai beau chercher; cette chère enfant que j'aime avec tant de passion est à deux cents lieues de moi , je ne l'ai plus.
