29-v. 5.

Thou art a fellow of a good respect;

Thy life hath had some smatch of honour in it.

[blocks in formation]

Under the tide: but now I breathe again
Aloft the flood; and can give audience
To any tongue, speak it of what it will.


I am fallen out with my more headier will,
To take the indisposed and sickly fit

For the sound man.

Mine honour is my


life; both grow in one;

Take honour from me, and my life is done.


16-iv. 2.

34-ii. 4.

17-i. 1.

We shall be winnow'd with so rough a wind,
That even our corn shall seem as light as chaff,
And good from bad find no partition.


For life, I prize it,

19-iv. 1.

As I weigh grief, which I would spare: for honour, "Tis a derivative from me to mine,

And only that I stand for.†


The breath no sooner left his father's body,
But that his wildness, mortified in him,

13-iii. 2.

Seem'd to die too: yea, at that very moment,
Consideration like an angel came,

*Stunned, confounded.

"The glory of a man, is from the honour of his father."-Ec

clus. iii. 11.

And whipp'd the offending Adam* out of him;
Leaving his body as a paradise,

To envelope and contain celestial spirits.


20-i. 1.

Poor honest lord, brought low by his own heart;
Undone by goodness! Strange, unusual blood,†
When man's worst sin is, he does too much good!
Who dares then to be half so kind again?

For bounty that makes gods, does still mar men.


If hearty sorrow

Be a sufficient ransom for offence,

I tender it here; I do as truly suffer,

27-iv. 2.

As e'er I did commit.


2-v. 4.

I speak as my understanding instructs me, and as mine honesty puts it to utterance.


13-i. 1.

He is the rock, the oak not to be wind-shaken.

28-v. 2.


I had as lief not be, as live to be
In awe of such a thing as I myself.

29-i. 2.


I and my bosom must debate awhile,
And then I would no other company.


20-iv. 1.

The good I stand on is my truth, and honesty.
If they shall fail, I, with mine enemies,

Will triumph o'er my person: which I weight not,
Being of those virtues vacant.



* The old man of sin. Man in an unregenerate state. Luke xv.

17, 18, 19.

† Propensity, disposition.

‡ Value.


My endeavours

25-iii. 2.

Have ever come too short of my desires,

Yet filed with my abilities.*


Read not my blemishes in the world's report.


'Tis much he dares;

And to that dauntless temper of his mind,

He hath a wisdom that doth guide his valour

To act in safety.

30-ii. 3.

15-iii. 1.


I study,

12-i. 1.

Virtue, and that part of philosophy
Will I apply, that treats of happiness,
By virtue 'specially to be achieved.


You are a gentleman of excellent breeding, admirable discourse, of great admittance, authentic in your place and person, generally allowed for your many war-like, court-like, and learned preparations.


A man of sovereign parts he is esteem'd!
Well fitted in the arts, glorious in arms;
Nothing becomes him ill, that he would well.
The only soil of his fair virtue's gloss,
(If virtue's gloss will stain with any soil,)
Is a sharp wit match'd with too blunt a will:

3-ii. 2.

Whose edge hath power to cut, whose will still wills It should none spare that come within his power.

8-ii. 1.



Is valiant, and dejected; and, by starts,

* My endeavours, though less than my desires, have filed, that is,

have one (an equal) pace with my abilities.

† In the greatest companies.

i. c. Combined.

30-iv. 10.

His fretted fortunes give him hope, and fear,
Of what he has, and has not.



Am right glad to catch this good occasion
Most thoroughly to be winnow'd, where my chaff
And corn shall fly asunder; for, I know,

There's none stands under more calumnious tongues,
Than I myself.


This the noble nature

25-v. 1.

Whom passion could not shake? whose solid virtue, The shot of accident, nor dart of chance,

Could neither graze nor pierce?


He is a man, setting his fate aside,*

Of comely virtues:

Nor did he soil the fact with cowardice

37-iv. 1.

(An honour in him, which buys out his fault); But, with a noble fury, and fair spirit,

Seeing his reputation touch'd to death,

He did oppose his foe:

And with such sober and unnoted passiont+

He did behavet his anger, ere 'twas spen,
As if he had but proved an argument.


The dearest friend, the kindest man,

The best condition'd and unwearied spirit
In doing courtesies.

27-iii. 5.

9-iii. 2.


For his bounty,

There was no winter in't; an autumn 'twas,

That grew the more by reaping.

30-v. 2.

* i. e. Putting this action of his, which was predetermined by fate' out of the question.

ti. e. Passion so subdued, that no spectator could note its opera. Manage, govern.



He covets less,

28-ii. 2.

Than misery* itself would give; rewards
His deeds with doing them: and is content
To spend the time, to end it.


I would dissemble with my nature, where
My fortunes, and my friends, at stake, required
I should do so in honour.


His life was gentle; and the elements

28-iii. 2.

So mix'd in him, that Nature might stand up,
And say to all the world, This was a man!


Spare in diet;

29-v. 5.

Free from gross passion, or of mirth, or anger;
Constant in spirit, not swerving with the blood;
Garnish'd and deck'd in modest compliment;†
Not working with the eye, without the ear,
And, but in purged judgment, trusting neither.


Where I could not be honest,

20-ii. 2.

I never yet was valiant.


34-v. 1.

Thou art a summer bird,

Which ever in the haunch of winter sings

The lifting-up of day.


19-iv. 4.

I know you all, and will awhile uphold
The unyoked humour of your idleness:
Yet herein will I imitate the sun;

Who doth permit the base contagious clouds
To smother up his beauty from the world,

* Avarice.

† Accomplishment.

i. e. Did not trust the air or look of any man, till he had tried

him by inquiry and conversation.
