Imatges de pÓgina

I am to day i' the vein of chivalry.

T.C. v. 3.
For my part, I may speak it to my shame,

I have a truant been to chivalry. H. IV. PT. J. v. 1. CHOICE.

There's a small choice in rotten apples. T. S. i. 1. CHRISTENING.

You must be seeing christenings! Do you look for ale and cakes here, you rude rascals !


I always thought,
It was both impious and unnatural,
That such immanity and bloody strife
Should reign among professors of one faith.

H.VI. PT. 1. v. 1. CHURCHMEN.

Who should be pitiful if you be not?
Or who should study to prefer a peace,
If holy churchmen take delight in broils ?

Å. VI. PT. 1. iii. 1.
Love and meekness, lord,
Become a churchman better than ambition;
Win straying souls with modesty again,
Cast none away.

H. VIII. v. 2. I am of the church, and will be glad to do my benevolence, to make atonements and compromises between you.

M.W. i. 1.
If we did think
His contemplations were above the earth,
And fix'd on spiritual objects, he should still
Dwell in his musings: but I am afraid,
His thinkings are below the moon, not worth
His serious considering.


What! the sword and the word I do you study them both, master parson ?

M. W. üi. 1. CHU SH SS.

My master is of churlish disposition,
And little recks to find the way to heaven,
By doing deeds of hospitality.


Thou shalt never get such a secret from me, but by a parable.

T. G. ii. 5.


Wear your eye,-thus, not jealous nor secure:
I would not have your free and noble nature,
Out of self bounty, be abus’d; look to’t.

0. iii. 3. Lay thy finger, thus, and let thy soul be instructed.


'Tis no sinister, nor no aukward claim,
Pick'd from the worm-holes of long vanish'd days,

Nor from the dust of old oblivion rak'd. H.V. ii. 4. CLEOPATRA, SAILING.

The barge she sat in, like a burnish'd throne,
Burn'd on the water : the poop was beaten gold;
Purple the sails, and so perfumed, that
The winds were love-sick with them : the oars were silver ;
Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made
The water, which they beat, to follow faster,
As amorous of their strokes. For her own person,
It beggar'd all description: she did lie
In her pavilion (cloth of gold of tissue)
O'er-picturing that Venus, where we see,
The fancy out-work nature; on each side her,
Stood pretty dimpled boys, like smiling Cupida,
With diverse-colour'd fans, whose wind did seem
To glow the delicate cheeks which they did cool ;-
And what they undid, did.
Her gentlewomen, like the Nereides,
So many mermaids, tended her i’ the eyes,
And made their bends adornings : at the helm,
A seeming, mermaid steers; the silken tackle
Swell with the touches of those flower-soft hands,
That yarely frame the office. From the barge,
A strange invisible perfume hits the sense
Of the adjacent wharfs.


The very opener and intelligencer,
Between the grace, the sanctities of heaven,
And our dull workings.

IV. PT. 11. iv. 2. CLOUDS.

That, which is now a horse, even with a thought,
The rack dislimns; and makes it indistinct,
As water is in water.

A. C. iv. 12.
Sometimes we see a cloud that's dragonish ;
A vapour, sometimes, like a bear, or lion,
A tower'd citadel, a pendant rock,


A forked mountain, or blue promontory,
With trees upon't, that nod unto the world,
And mock our eyes with air : Thou hast seen these signs ;
They are black vesper's pageants.

A.C. iv. 12.
A clod of wayward marle.

M. A. i. 1. It is meat and drink to me to see a clown. A.Y. v. 1. COAST AT SUN-RISE.

Even till the eastern gate, all fiery red,
Opening on Neptune with fair blessed beams

Turns into yellow gold his salt-green streams. M. N. iii. 2. COCK, CROWING.

I have heard,
The cock, that is the trumpet of the morn,
Doth with his lofty and shrill-sounding throat
Awake the god of day; and, at his warning,
Whether in sea, or fire, in earth, or air,
The extravagant and erring spirit hies
To his confine.


This will so fright them both, that they will kill one another by the look, like cockatrices.

T.N. ii. 4. COLDNESS (See also FRIGIDITY). i Tut, tut, thou art all ice; thy kindness freezes.

R. III. iv. 2.
A snapper up of unconsidered trifles.

W. T. iv. 2.
And in his brain,
Which is as dry as the remainder biscuit
After a voyage, he hath strange places cramm’d
With observation, the which he vents
In mangled forms.

A.Y. ii. 7. Every lane's end, every shop, church, session, hanging, yields a careful man work.

W.T. iv. 3. A poor humour of mine, Sir, to take that that no man else will.

A.Y. v. 4. COMBAT. Now they are clapper-clawing one another; I'll go look on

T.C. v. 40 COMFORT.

Thoughts tending to content, flatter themselves,-
That they are not the first of fortune's slaves,


Nor shall not be the last; like silly beggars,
Who, sitting in the stocks, refuge their shame,-
That many have, and others must sit there,
And in this thought they find a kind of ease,
Bearing their own misfortunes on the back
Of such as have before endur'd the like. R. II. v. 5,
How mightily, sometimes, we make us comforts of our losses.

A. W. iv. 3. COMMODITY.

Commodity, the bias of the world ;
The world, who of itself is poised well,
Made to run even upon even ground ;
Till this advantage, this vile drawing bias,
This sway of motion, this commodity,
Makes it take head from all indifferency,
From all direction, purpose, course, intent:
And this same bias, this commodity,
This bawd, this broker, this all-changing word,
Clapp'd on the outward eye of fickle France,
Hath drawn him from his own determin'd aid,
From a resolv'd and honourable war,

To a most base and vile concluded peace. K. J. ii. 2. COMMOTION (See also MOB).

The times are wild ; contention, like a horse
Full of high feeding, madly hath broke loose,
And bears down all before him.

H. IV. PT. II. i. 1.
You have made good work,
You and your apron men ; you that stood so much
Upon the voice of occupation, and
The breath of garlic-eaters.

C. iv. 6. COMPACT.

A seald compact,
Well ratified by law and heraldry.


We were as twinn’d lambs that did frisk i' the sun,
And bleat the one at the other: what we chang'd
Was innocence for innocence; we knew not
The doctrine of ill-doing, no, nor dream'd

W.T. i. 2 COMPANY.

It is certain, that either wise bearing, or ignorant car. riage is caught as men take diseases, one of another; therefore, let men take heed of their company,

H. IV. PT. II. v. 1. There is a thing, Harry, which thou hast often heard of, COMPANY,-continued.

and it is known to many in our land by the name of pitch: this pitch, as ancient writers do report, doth defile ; so doth the company thou keepest.

H. IV. PT. I. ii. 4. Well, heaven send the prince a better companion.

H. IV. Pt. 11. i. 2. COMPASSION.

Had he been slaughter-man to all my kin,
I should not for my life but weep with him,

To see how inly sorrow gripes his soul. H.VI. Pt. m. i. 4.
There are some shrewd contents in yon' same paper.

M. V. ii. 2. COMPLAINT.

0, that I were
Upon the hill of Basan, to outroar
The horned herd! for I have savage cause ;
And to proclaim it civilly, were like
A halter'd neck, which does the hangman thank
For being yare about him.

A.C. iii. 11. COMPLIMENT.

'Twas never merry world Since lowly feigning was call's compliment. T. N. iii. 1. COMPUNCTION (See also REMORSE).

Art thou afeard
To be the same in thine own act and valour,
As thou art in desire ? Would'st thou have that
Which thou esteem'st the ornament of life,
And live a coward in thine own esteem;
Letting I dare not, wait upon I would,
Like the poor cat i' the adage ?

M. i. 7.
We will proceed no further in this business:
He hath honour'd me of late, and I have bought
Golden opinions of all sorts of people.

M. i. 7.
But wherefore could I not pronounce, Amen?
I had most need of blessing, and Amen
Stuck in my throat.

M. ii. 2. COMRADE.

Friend and companion in the front of war. A.C. v. 1. CONCEIT.

So sensible
Seemeth their conference, their conceits have wings
Fleeter than arrows, ballets, wind, thought, swifter things.

L. L. v. 2.
