  • As this admonition was accompanied with a threatening gesture, and uttered with a savage aspect, the little boy rubbed his face harder, as if to keep the tears back; and, beyond alternately sniffing and choking, gave no further vent to his emotions.
  • The only scriptural admonition that Ralph Nickleby heeded, in the letter, was ’know thyself.’
