EDITED BY WILLIAM J. THOM'S, ESQ. F.S.A.
"They are Mucrones Verborum, pointed speeches. Cicero prettily calls them Salinas, salt pits, that you may extract salt out of and sprinkle it where you will. They serve to be interlaced in continued speech : they serve to be recited, upon occasion, of themselves : they serve, if you take out the kernel of them, and make them your own."-- LORD BACON.
