And so shall starve withi feeding.

But anger has a privilege.

By the gods
You shall digest the venom of your spleen,
Though it do split you : for, from this day forth,
I'll use you for my mirth, yea, for my laughter,
When you are waspish.
J. C. iv. 3. ANGLING.
The pleasant'st angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait. M. A. iii. 1. ANNOYANCE, IMPERTINENT.

H. IV. PT. II. i. 2 APOTHECARY.
I do remember an apothecary, -
And hereabouts he dwells, - whom late I noted
In tatter'd weeds, with overwhelming brows,
Culling of simples; meagre were his looks,
Sharp misery had worn him to the bones :
And in his needy shop a tortoise hung,
An alligator stuff'd, and other skins
Of ill-shap'd fishes; and about his shelves
A beggarly account of empty boxes,
Green earthen pots, bladders and musty seeds,
Remnants of packthread, and old cakes of roses,
Were thinly scatter'd to make up a show.
Noting this penury, to myself I said,
An' if a man did need a poison now,
Whose sale is present death in Mantua.
Here lives a caitiff wretch would sell it him. R. J. v. 1 APPARITION (See also Ghosts, SPIRITS).

May walk again: if such thing be, thy mother
Appear'd to me last night; for ne’er was dream
So like a waking.

As, after some oration fairly spoke

Turns to a wild of nothing.

0.i.1. ARMAMENT, Sailing.
Thus with imagin'd wing our swift scene flies,
In motion of no less celerity
Than that of thought. Suppose that you have seen
The well-appointed King at IIampton pier
Embark' his royalty, and his brave fleet
With silken streamers the young Phoebus fanning.
Play with your fancies; and in them behold,
Upon the hempen tackle ship-boys climbing:
Hear the shrill whistle which doth order give
To sounds confus'd; behold the threaden sails,
Borne with the invisible and creeping wind,
Draw the huge bottoms through the furrow'd sea,
Breasting the lofty surge: 0 do but think,
You stand upon the rivage, and behold
A city on the inconstant billows dancing;
For so appears this fleet majestical,
Holding due course to Hartieur.
H. V. ii. chorus. ARMY (See also War).
A 'braver choice of dauntless spirits
Than now the English bottoms have waft o'er,
Did never float upon the swelling tide,
To do offence and scath in Christendom.
The interruption of their churlish drums
Cuts off more circumstance: they are at hand,
To parley, or to fight; therefore prepare.
K. J. ii. 1,
England, impatient of your just demands,
Hath put himself in arms; the adverse winds,
Whose leisure I have staid, have given him timo
To land his legions all as soon as I:
His marches are expedient to this town,
His forces strong, his soldiers confident. K. J. ii. 1.
Tell the Constable,
We are but warriors for the working day;
Our gayness, and our gilt, are all be-smirch'd
With rainy marching in the painful field.
There's not a piece of feather in our host,
(Good argument I hope we shall not fly,)
And time has worn us into slovenry :
But, by the mass, our hearts are in the trim. H.V. iv. 3.
Within a ken our army lies;
Upon mine honour, all too confident
To give admittance to a thought of fear.
H. IV. PT. II. iv. 1.
All the unsettled humours of the land,
Rash, inconsiderate, fiery voluntaries,
With ladies' faces, and fierce dragons' spleens, -
Have sold their fortunes at their native homes,
Bearing their birthrights proudly on their backs,
To make a hazard of new fortunes here.
K. J. ii. 1.
Remember who you are to cope withal ;-
A sort of vagabonds, rascals, and run-aways,
A scum of Bretagnes, and base lackey peasants,
Whom their o'er-cloy'd country vomits forth
* To desperate ventures, and assur'd destruction.
R. III. v. 3.
Big Mars seems bankrupt in their beggar'd host,
And faintly through a rusty beaver peeps.
The horsemen sit like fixed candlesticks,
With torch-staves in their hands; and their poor jades
Lob down their heads, drooping the hides and hips ;
The gum down-roping from their pale dead eyes ;
And in their pale dull mouths the gymold bit
Lies foul with chaw'd grass, still and motionless ;
And their executors, the knavish crows,
Fly o’er them all, impatient for their hour. H.V. iv. 2.
His army is a ragged multitude
Of hinds and peasants, rude and merciless.
H. VI. PT. 11. iv. 4. ARRAIGNMENT.
It shall be done, I will arraign them straight:
Come, sit thou here, most learned justicer. K. L. iii. 6, ARREST.
If I could speak so wisely under an arrest, I would sand
for certain of my creditors : and yet, to say the truth, I had as lief have the foppery of freedom, as the morality of imprisonment.
M. M. i. 3. ART AND NATURE.
Nature is made better by no mean,
But nature makes that mean ; so, o'er that art
Which, you say, adds to nature, is an art
That nature makes.
W.T. iv. 3.
This is an art
Which does mend nature, -change it rather ; but
The art itself is nature.

For an abuser of the world, a practiser
Of arts inhibited, and out of warrant.

Bears a command in't; though thy tackle's torn
Thou show'st a noble vessel.
