Page 166 - The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field, which indeed is the least of all seeds, but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
Page 255 - Two large potatoes passed through kitchen sieve Unwonted softness to the salad give. Of mordant mustard add a single spoon ; Distrust the condiment which bites too soon ; But deem it not, thou man of herbs, a fault To add a double quantity of salt. Three times the spoon with oil of Lucca crown, And once with vinegar procured from town.
