"Doänt Thou Marry For Munny, But Goä Wheer Munny Is!"
Context: The farmer of the north of England speaks, in the dialect of his region, to his son, Sam, who wants to marry the parson's daughter. The man sympathizes with his son: he knows how powerful is the infatuation of love, for he too was young once, and "craazed fur the lasses." But, he says, a young man must think of his future, not merely his present gratification. He, in his youth, was advised not to seek the hand of a wealthy girl, but to go where wealthy people were and then wait for a marriage to develop naturally. This advice he took, and so found his wife, who was not beautiful, but who had money and land.
