especially if it come from a man that is fasting, it is present
death.More Pliny Secundus) quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Their best and most wholesome feeding is upon one dish and no
more and the same plaine and simple: for surely this hudling of

abroad with their mouthes because it dulceth and allaieth the
unpleasant nature thereof, and carrieth a light with it.More Pliny Secundus) quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
