Then: Our guide then took us to the spot where the burning bush actually was . . . and from there we crossed the head of the valley and made our way to the mountain of God - the very summit where God's glory came down (as it is written) and revealed itself to all. . . .

Now: So Sir Francis Beekman wanted us to get out and look at a tower where he said that quite a famous queen had had her head cut off one morning, and Dorothy said, 'What a fool she was to get up that morning' and that is really the only sensible thing that Dorothy has said in London.
Gentleman Prefer Blondes: Anita Loos (fl. c AD18.520s)
Then: The bailiff had remembered his instructions and turned me loose for a while with the horses at pasture. Free at last, I frisked joyfully about and ambled up to the mares, reviewing them carefully to see which would be the most voluptuous.

The Golden Ass: Apuleius (fl. AD150)
Now: Back at the Mill Jake turned his horses out for a rest. It pleased him to see them really enjoying their grass, even Revenge dropping his belly like an old hunter.
