Lancelot Andrewes

It was a shrewn and severe animadversion of a Scotish Lord, who, when King James asked him how he liked Bishop Andrewes's sermon, said that he was learned, but he did play with his text, as a jack-an-apes does, who takes up a thing and tosses and plays with it, and then he takes up another, and plays a little with it. Here's a pretty thing, and there's a pretty thing !

died in 1626
