I did receive fair speechless messages :
Nor is the wide world ignorant of her worth;
And many Jasons come in quest of her.
ANT. Thou know'st, that all my fortunes are
Nor have I money, nor commodity
To raise a present sum: therefore go forth,
MERCHANT OF VENICE, A. 1, s. 1.
A NOBLE NATURE AT WAR WITH ARTIFICE.
TIMON. Uncover, dogs, and lap.
[The dishes uncovered, are full of warm water. Some speak. What does his lordship mean? Some other. I know not.
TIM. May you a better feast never behold,
You knot of mouth-friends! smoke, and lukewarm water
Is your perfection. This is Timon's last;
[Throwing water in their faces. Your reeking villainy. Live loath'd, and long, Most smiling, smooth, detested parasites, Courteous destroyers, affable wolves, meek bears, You fools of fortune, trencher-friends, time's flies, Cap and knee slaves, vapours, and minute-jacks! Of man, and beast, the infinite malady
Crust you quite o'er!-What, dost thou go? Soft, take thy physick first-thou too,-and thou:
[Throws the dishes at them, and drives them out.
TIMON OF ATHENS, A. 3, s. 6.
A NOBLE NATURE GONE ASTRAY.
Ir grieves many:
The gentleman is learned, and a most rare speaker, To nature none more bound; his training such, That he may furnish and instruct great teachers, And never seek for aid out of himself.
When these so noble benefits shall prove
Not well dispos'd, the mind growing once corrupt, They turn to vicious forms, ten times more ugly
Than ever they were fair. This man so complete,

A TRUCE IN THE HEROIC AGE.
WORTHY of arms! as welcome as to one
But that's no welcome: Understand more clear What's past, and what's to come, is strew'd with husks
And formless ruin of oblivion
But in this extant moment, faith and troth,
From heart of very heart, great Hector, welcome.
TROILUS AND CRESSIDA, 4, s. 5.
A TRUE FRIEND REBUKES WHERE FLATTERERS PRAISE.
TIMON. NOW, Apemantus, if thou wert not sullen, I'd be good to thee.
No, I'll nothing: for
If I should be brib'd too, there would be none
To rail upon thee; and then thou would'st sin
Thou giv'st so long, Timon, I fear me, thou
Wilt give away thyself in paper shortly:
An you begin to rail on society once,
I am sworn, not to give regard to you.
So ;Thou❜lt not hear me now,-thou shalt not then,
Thy heaven from thee. O, that men's ears should be
To counsel deaf, but not to flattery!
TIMON OF ATHENS, A. 1, s. 2.
A VIRTUOUS WIFE AND SISTER'S OMENS MAY NOT BE DISRE
When was my lord so much
To stop his ears against admonishment?
Unarm, unarm, and do not fight to-day. HECTOR. You train me to offend you; get you in:
By all the everlasting gods, I'll go.
AND. My dreams will, sure, prove ominous to the day.

Consort with me in loud and dear petition.
Pursue we him on knees; for I have dream'd
Of bloody turbulence, and this whole night
Hath nothing been but shapes and forms of slaughter.
CAS. O, it is true.
my trumpet sound! CAS. No notes of sally, for the heavens, sweet brother.
HECT. Begone, I say: the gods have heard
CAS. The gods are deaf to hot and peevish
They are polluted offerings, more abhorr'd
AND. O! be persuaded: Do not count it holy To hurt by being just: it is as lawful,
For we would give much, to use violent thefts, And rob in the behalf of charity.
CAS. It is the purpose, that makes strong
But vows to every purpose must not hold :
TROILUS AND CRESSIDA, A. 5, s. 2.
SWEET mistress, (what your name is else I know not,
Nor by what wonder you do hit on mine,) Less, in your knowledge, and your grace, you show not,
Than our earth's wonder; more than earth divine.
