The effects of a disordered mind.
15-ii. 3. 372 Knowledge gained by experience. Our courtiers say, all's savage but at court : Experience, O thou disprov'st report! The imperious* seas breed monsters; for the dish, Poor tributary rivers as sweet fish.

O, that men should put an enemy in their mouths, to steal away their brains! that we should, with joy, revel, pleasure, and applause, transform ourselves into beasts !
24-ii. 2. 385
Time's progress. Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore, So do our minules hasten to their end; Each changing place with that which goes before; In sequent toil all forwards do contend.
