  • The Parson : The port is with you

  • The Parson : [Describing his country church]  I always say my West window has all the *exuberance* of Chaucer without, happily, any of the concomitant crudities of his period.

  • [to a poacher caught in a mantrap] 

    The Duke : Hoskins is now going to thrash you; then he'll let you go. Let this be a lesson to you not to poach on my land.

  • The Banker : A tragic loss serves to put lesser matters in their proper perspective.
