All places are distant from heaven alike.
When they are at Rome, they do there as they see done.
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.
[Quoting Seneca] Cornelia kept her in talk till her children came from school, "and these," said she, "are my jewels."
Christ himself was poor. . . . And as he was himself, so he informed his apostles and disciples, they were all poor, prophets poor, apostles poor.
