Good fellowship and friendship are lasting, rational and manly pleasures.
Come, for my part I will have only those glorious, manly pleasures of being very drunk, and very slovenly.
A mistress should be like a little country retreat near the town, not to dwell in constantly, but only for a night and away.
Hunger, revenge, to sleep are petty foes, But only death the jealous eyes can close.
Next to the pleasure of finding a new mistress is that of being rid of an old one.
