皇冠 But to my Garden get the gone,
规则Gracious Lord, I wonder not a little at your speeches, and so muchthe greater is my admiration, because no man els can be subject to thelike, in regard I have knowne you from the time of your infancy;even to this instant houre, and alwayes your carriage to bee one andthe same. I could never perceive in your youthfull dayes (when loveshould have the greatest meanes to assaile you) any such oppressingpassions: which is now the more novell and strange to me, to heareit but said, that you being old, and called the Aged; should be growneamorous, surely to me it seemeth a miracle. And if it appertained tome to reprehend you in this case, I know well enough what I could say.Considering, you have yet your Armour on your backe, in a Kingdomenewly conquered, among a Nation not knowne to you, full of falsehoods,breaches, and treasons; all which are no meane motives to care andneedfull respect. But having now wone a little leisure, to rest yourselfe a while from such serious affaires; can you give way to the idlesuggestions of Love? Beleeve me Sir, it is no act becomming amagnanimious King; but rather the giddy folly of a young braine.皇冠规则注册注册
皇冠Moreover you say (which most of all I mislike) that you intend totake the two Virgines from the Knight, who hath given youentertainment in his house beyond his ability, and to testifie howmuch he honoured you, he suffered you to have a sight of them, meerely(almost) in a naked manner: witnessing thereby, what constant faith hereposed in you, beleeving verily, that you were a just King, and not aravenous Woolfe. Have you so soone forgot, that the rapes andviolent actions, done by King Manfred to harmelesse Ladies, madeyour onely way of entrance into this Kingdome? What treason was evercommitted, more worthy of eternall punishment, then this will be inyou: to take away from him (who hath so highly honoured you) hischiefest hope and consolation? What will be said by all men, if youdoe it?规则皇冠规则注册注册Peradventure you thinke, it will be a sufficient excuse for you,to say: I did it, in regard hee was a Ghibelline. Can you imagine thisto be justice in a King, that such as get into their possession inthis manner (whatsoever it be) ought to use it in this sort? Let metell you Sir, it was a most worthy victory for you, to conquer KingManfred: but it is farre more famous victory, for a man to conquerhimselfe. You therfore, who are ordained to correct vices in othermen, learne first to subdue them in your selfe, and (by brideling thisinordinate appetite) set not a foule blemish on so faire a fame, aswill be honour to you to preserve spotlesse.皇冠规则These words pierced the heart of the King deepely, and so much themore afflicted him, because he knew them to be most true: wherefore,after he had ventred a very vehement sigh, thus he replyed. Beleeve menoble Count, there is not any enemy, how strong soever he be, but Ihold him weake and easie to be vanquished, by him who is skilfull inthe warre, where a man may learne to conquere his owne appetite. Butbecause he shall find it a laborious taske, requiring inestimablestrength and courage; your words have so toucht me to the quicke, thatit becommeth me to let you effectually perceive (and within thecompasse of few dayes) that as I have learned to conquer others, soI am not ignorant, in expressing the like power upon my selfe.Having thus spoken, within some few dayes after, the King beingreturned to Naples, he determined, as we to free himself from anythe like ensuing follie, as also to recompence Signior Neri, for thegreat kindnesse he had shewne to him (although it was a difficultthing, to let another enjoy, what he rather desired for himselfe) tohave the two Damosels married, not as the Daughters of Signior Neri,but even as if they were his owne. And by consent of the Father, hegave Genevera the faire, to Signior Maffeo da Palizzi, and Isottathe amiable, to Signior Gulielmo della Magna, two Noble Knights andhonourable Barons. After he had thus given them in marriage, in sadmourning he departed thence into Apuglia, where by following worthyand honourable actions, he so well overcame all inordinateappetites: that shaking off the enthraling fetters of love, he livedfree from all passions, the rest of his life time, and dyed as anhonourable King.
注册皇冠Some perhaps will say, it was a small matter for a King, to giveaway two Damosels in marriage, and I confesse it: but I maintaine itto be great, and more then great, if we say, that a King, being soearnestly enamoured as this King was; should give her away to another,whom he so dearely affected himselfe, without receiving (in recompenceof his affection) so much as a leaffe, flowre, or the least fruit oflove. Yet such was the vertue of this magnificent King, expressed inso highly recompencing the noble Knights courtesie, honouring thetwo daughters so royally, and conquering his owne affections sovertuously.规则Instantly, the bedde and Thorello in it, in the presence ofSaladine, was invisibly carried thence, and while he sate conferringwith his Baschaes, the bed, Signior Thorello, and all the rich Jewellsabout him, was transported and set in the Church of San Pietro in Cield'Ore in Pavia, according to his own request, and soundly sleeping,being placed directly before the high Altar. Afterward, when the bellsrung to Mattines, the Sexton entring the Church with a light in hishand (where hee beheld a light of greater splendor) and suddenlyespied the sumptuous bedde there standing: not only was he smitteninto admiration, but hee ranne away also very fearefully. When theAbbot and the Monkes mette him thus running into the Cloyster, theybecame amazed, and demanded the reason why he ranne in such haste,which the Sexton told them. How? quoth the Abbot, thou art nochilde, or a new-come hither, to be so easilie affrighted in ourholy Church, where Spirits can have no power to walke, God and SaintPeter (wee hope) are stronger for us then so: wherefore turne backewith us, and let us see the cause of thy feare.详情
