There are a kind of men so loose of soul,
That in their sleeps will mutter their affairs.


37-iii. 3.

Think you, a little din can daunt mine ears?
Have I not in my time heard lions roar?
Have I not heard the sea, puff'd up with winds,
Rage like an angry boar, chafed with sweat?
Have I not heard great ordnance in the field,
And heaven's artillery thunder in the skies?
Have I not in the pitched battle heard

Loud 'larums, neighing steeds, and trumpets' clang?
And do you tell me of a woman's tongue,

That gives not half so great a blow to the ear,
As will a chestnut in a farmer's fire?
Tush! tush! fear boys with bugs.*


12-i. 2.

I know not why I am so sad;
It wearies me; you say, it wearies you;
But how I caught it, found it, or came by it,
What stuff 'tis made of, whereof it is born,
I am to learn;

And such a want-wit sadness makes of me,
That I have much ado to know myself.

9-i. 1.



In the catalogue ye go for men ; As hounds, and greyhounds, mongrels, spaniels, cars, Shoughs, water-rugs, and demi-wolves, are clepedt All by the name of dogs: the valued file

*Fright boys with bug-bears.

+ Wolf-dogs.

1 Called.

Distinguishes the swift, the slow, the subtle,
The housekeeper, the hunter, every one
According to the gift which bounteous nature
Hath in him closed; whereby he does receive
Particular addition,* from the bill

That writes them all alike: and so of men.


15-iii. 1.

Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile;

And cry, content, to that which grieves my heart;
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.


23--iii. 2.

Most mischievous foul sin, in chiding sin:
For thou thyself hast been a libertine,
As sensual as the brutish sting itself;
And all the embossed sores, and headed evils,
That thou with license of free foot hast caught,
Would'st thou disgorge into the general world.


Swear his thought over
By each particular star in heaven, and
By all their influences, you may as well
Forbid the sea for to obey the moon,
As or, by oath, remove, or counsel, shake
The fabric of his folly; whose foundation
Is piled upon his faith, and will continue
The standing of his body.


10-ii. 7.

13-i. 2.

Thou almost mak'st me waver in my faith
To hold opinion with Pythagoras,
That souls of animals infuse themselves
Into the trunks of men: thy currish spirit
Govern'd a wolf, who, hang'd for human slaughter,
Even from the gallows did his fell soul fleet,
And, whilst thou lay'st in thy unhallow'd dam,
Infused itself in thee: for thy desires

Are wolfish, bloody, starved, and ravenous.

9-iv. 1.

Settled belief.


Thy tyranny

Together working with thy jealousies,-
Fancies too weak for boys, too green and idle
For girls of nine !—O think, what they have done,
And then run mad, indeed; stark mad! for all
Thy by-gone fooleries were but spices of it.


13-iii. 2.

I am well acquainted with your manner of wrenching the true cause the false way. It is not a confident brow, nor the throng of words, that come with such more than impudent sauciness from you, can thrust me from a level consideration. 19-ii. 1.


Can you not see? or will you not observe
The strangeness of his alter'd countenance?
With what a majesty he bears himself;
How insolent of late he is become,

How proud, peremptory, and unlike himself?

We know the time, since he was mild and affable.

[blocks in formation]

But meet him now, and be it in the morn,
When every one will give the time of day,
He knits his brow, and shows an angry eye,
And passeth by with stiff, unbowed knee. 22-iii. 1.


O, thou dissembling cub! what wilt thou be,
When time hath sow'd a grizzle on thy case ?*
Or will not else thy craft so quickly grow,
That thine own trip shall be thine overthrow.



And under-honest; in self-assumption greater,
Than in the note of judgment.


O foolish youth!

4-v. 1.

26-ii. 3.

Thou seek'st the greatness that will overwhelm thee.

* Skin.

19-iv. 4.


Pride went before, ambition follows him.


As dissolute, as desperate: yet through both
I see some sparkles of a better hope,
Which elder days may happily bring forth.


The hope and expectation of thy time
Is ruin'd; and the soul of every man
Prophetically does fore-think thy fall.


22-i. 1.

17-v. 3.

18-iii. 2.

He cannot temperately transport his honours
From where he should begin, and end; but will
Lose those that he hath won.


Beware of yonder dog;

28-ii. 1.

Look, when he fawns, he bites; and, when he bites, His venom tooth will rankle to the death:

Have not to do with him, beware of him,

Sin, death, and hell, have set their marks on him;
And all their ministers attend on him.


24-i. 3.

A man that apprehends death no more dreadfully, but as a drunken sleep; careless, reckless, and fearless of what's past, present, or to come; insensible of mortality, and desperately mortal.*


5-iv. 2.

Trust not to those cunning waters of his eyes,
For villany is not without such rheum ;†

And he, long traded in it, makes it seem

Like rivers of remorset and innocency.

16-iv. 3.


What! can so young a thorn begin to prick?

23-v. 5.

* Desperately wicked.

† Moisture.



You may as well go stand upon the beach,
And bid the main flood bate his usual height;
You may as well use question with the wolf,
Why he hath made the ewe bleat for the lamb;
You may as well forbid the mountain pines,
To wag their high tops, and to make no noise,
When they are fretted with the gusts of heaven;
You may as well do any thing most hard,

As seek to soften that (than which what's harder?)
His heart.


9-iv. 1.

My brain, more busy than the labouring spider,
Weaves tedious snares to trap mine enemies.


Thy face is, visor-like, unchanging, Made impudent with use of evil deeds.


A fellow by the hand of nature mark'd,
Quoted, and sign'd, to do a deed of shame.


22-iii. 1.

23-i. 4.

16-iv. 2.

True honest men being heard, like false Æneas,

Were, in his time, thought false: and Sinon's weeping Did scandal many a holy tear; took pity

From most true wretchedness: So, thou,

Goodly, and gallant, shall be false, and perjured,

Wilt lay the leaven on all proper men;

From thy great fail.

31-iii. 4.


I know a discontented gentleman,

Whose humble means match not his haughty mind;

Gold were as good as twenty orators,

And will no doubt, tempt him to any thing.


Thou art said to have a stubborn soul,

24-iv. 2.

That apprehends no farther than this world,
And squar'st thy life according.

5-v. 1.
