足球 Worthy, and charitable words, replied the Friar: but tell meSonne, Didst thou ever beare false witnes against any man, or hastspoken falsly, or taken ought from any one, contrary to the will ofthe owner? Yes indeed Father, said Maister Chappelet, I have spokenill of another, because I have sometime seene one of my neighbors, whowith no meane shame of the world, would do nothing else but beat hiswife: and of him once I complained to the poore mans parents,saying, that he never did it but when he was overcome with drinke.Those were no ill words, quoth the Friar; but I remember you said,that you were a Merchant: Did you ever deceive any, as someMerchants use to doe? Truely Father, answered M. Chappelet, I thinkenot any, except one man, who one day brought me money which he owed mefor a certaine peece of cloath I sold him, and I put it into a pursewithout accounting it. About a moneth afterward, I found that therewere foure small pence more then was due to mee: and never happeningto meete with the man againe, after I had kept them the space of awhole yeare, I then gave them away unto foure poore people, for Godssake.
下注THE MANIFOLD MUTABILITIES OF FORTUNEkk足球下注足球
下注Three young Gentlemen, being Brethren, and having spent all theirLands and possessions vainely, became poore. A Nephew of theirs(falling almost into as desperate a condition) became acquaintedwith an Abbot, whom he afterward found to be the King of EnglandsDaughter, and made him her Husband in mariage, recompencing all hisUncles losses, and seating them againe in good estate.足球kk足球下注下注The fortunes of Rinaldo de Este, being heard by the Ladies andGentlemen, they admired his happinesse, and commended his devotionto Saint Julian, who (in such extreame necessity) sent him so goodsuccour. Nor was the Lady to be blamed, for leaving base liberty,and converting to the chaste embraces of the marriage bed, the dignityof Womens honour, and eternall disgrace living otherwise. While thusthey descanted on the happy night betweene her and Rinaldo, MadamPampinea sitting next to Philostratus, considering, that her Discoursemust follow in order, and thinking on what shee was to say; the Queenehad no sooner sent out her command, but she being no lesse fairethen forward, began in this manner. Ladies of great respect, themore we conferre on the accidents of Fortune, so much the moreremaineth to consider on her mutabilities, wherein there is no need ofwonder, if discreetly we observe that al such things as we fondlytearme to be our owne, are in her power, and so (consequently)change from one to another, without any stay or arrest (according toher concealed judgement) or setled order (at least) that can beeknowne to us. Now, although these things appeare thus dayly to us,even apparantly in all occasions, and as hath beene discerned bysome of our precedent Discourses; yet notwithstanding, seeing itpleaseth the Queene, that our arguments should aime at these ends, Iwill adde to the former tales another of my owne, perhaps notunprofitable for the hearers, nor unpleasing in observation.足球下注Sometime heeretofore, there dwelt in our Cittie, a Knight namedSignior Theobaldo, who (according as some report) issued from theFamily of Lamberti, but others derive him of the Agolanti; guiding(perhaps) their opinion heerein, more from the traine of Children,belonging to the saide Theobaldo (evermore equall to that of theAgolanti) then any other matter else. But setting aside from whichof these two houses he came, I say, that in his time he was a verywealthy Knight, and had three sonnes; the first being namedLamberto, the second Theobaldo, and the third Agolanto, all goodly andgracefull youths: howbeit, the eldest had not compleated eighteeneyeares, when Signior Theobaldo the Father deceased, who left themall his goods and inheritances. And they, seeing themselves rich inready monies and revennewes, without any other governement thentheir owne voluntary disposition, kept no restraint upon theirexpences, but maintained many servants, and store of unvalewableHorses, beside Hawkes and Hounds, with open house for all commers; andnot onely all delights else fit for Gentlemen, but what vanitiesbeside best agreed with their wanton and youthfull appetites.
足球下注Not long had they run on this race, but the Treasures lefte themby their Father, began greatly to diminish; and their Revennewessuffised not, to support such lavish expences as they had begun: butthey fell to engaging and pawning their inheritances, selling one today, and another to morrow, so that they saw themselves quickelycome to nothing, and then poverty opened their eyes, which prodigalityhad before clozed up. Heereupon, Lamberto (on a day) calling hisBrethren to him, shewed them what the honors of their Father hadbeene, to what height his wealth amounted, and now to what an ebbeof poverty it was falne, only thorow their inordinate expences.Wherefore hee counselled them, (as best he could) before furthermisery insulted over them, to make sale of the small remainder thatwas left, and then to betake themselves unto some other abiding, wherefairer Fortune might chance to shine uppon them.足球Like mine poore amorous Maide?详情
