What can't be cured must be endured.

[Desire] is a perpetual rack, or horse mill, according to Austin, still going round as in a ring.
[Diseases] crucify the soul of man, attenuate our bodies, dry them, wither them, shrivel them up like old apples, make them so many anatomies.
Set a beggar on horseback and he will ride a gallop.
Many things happen between the cup and the lip.
Birds of a feather will gather together.
They lard their lean books with the fat of others' works.
Carcasses bleed at the sight of the murderer.
Can build castles in the air.
[Witches] steal young children out of their cradles, ministerio dæmonum, and put deformed in their rooms, which we call changelings.
