So much as but to prop him?

tivity to this instant, and have nothing at his hands for my service but blows: When ĭ am cold, he heats me with beating : when I am warm, he cools me with beating. I am waked with it, when I sleep; raised with it, when I sit; driven out of doors with it, when I go from home; welcomed home with it, when I return: nay, I bear it on my shoulders, as a beggar wont her brat ; and, I think, when he hath lamed me, I shall beg with it from door to door. 14-iv. 4.

13–iv. 3.

387 I was born about three of the clock in the afternoon, with a white head, and something a round belly. For my voice, I have lost it with hollaing, and singing of anthems.

19-i. 2.

388 I am a courtier. See'st thou not the air of the court, in these enfoldings ? hath not my gait in it, the measure of the court ? receives not thy nose court-odour from me ? reflect I not on thy baseness, court-contempt ?

13-iv. 3.

389 Thou rag of honour !

24-i. 3.

I would have had you put your power well on,
Before had worn it out.
You might have been enough the man you are,
With striving less to be so : Lesser had been
The thwartings of your dispositions, if
You had not show'd them how you were disposed,
Ere they lack'd power to cross you.

6-V. 2.

400 And I, forsooth, in love! I, that have been love's


beadle to a humorous sigh;
A critic; nay, a night-watch constable;
A domineering pedant o'er the boy,
Than whom no mortal so magnificent !
This wimpled, whining, purblind, wayward boy ;
This senior-junior, giant-dwarf, Dan Cupid;
Regent of love-rhymes, lord of folded arīns,
The anointed sovereign of sighs and groans,
Liege of all loiterers and malcontents,
Sole imperator and great general
Of trotting paritors,* O my little heart !
And I to be a corporal of his field,
And wear his colours like a tumbler's hoop!
What? I! I love! I sue! I seek a wife!
A woman, that is like a German clock,
Still a repairing; ever out of frame;
And never going aright, being a watch,
But being watch'd that it may still go right?

To pray for her! Go to; it is a plague,
That Cupid will impose for my neglect
Of his almighty dreadful little might. 8-iii. 1.

A slippery and subtle knave; a finder-out of occasions; that has an eye can stamp and counterfeit advantages, though true advantage never present itself.

37-ii, 1.

What a blunt fellow is this grown to be !
He was quick mettle when he went to school.
So is he now, in execution
Of any bold or noble enterprise,
However he puts on this tardy form.
This rudeness is a sauce to his good wit,
Which gives men stomach to digest his words
With better appetite.

29_i. 2.

406 That ever this fellow should have fewer words than a parrot, and yet the son of a woman !-His industry is—up stairs, and down stairs; his eloquence, the parcel of a reckoning,

18-ii. 4. 407 A hungry lean-faced villain, A mere anatomy, a mountebank, A thread-bare juggler, and a fortune-teller; A needy, hollow-eyed, sharp-looking wretch, A living dead man.
