M.V. jü. 2. COMPLAINT.
0, that I were
Upon the hill of Basan, to outroar
The horned berd! 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. ii. 11. COMPLIMENT.
'Twas never merry world Since lowly feigning was call'd 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

Letting I dare not, wait upon I would,
Like the poor cat i' the adage ?

Go I to fight: Truth has a quiet breast. R. II. i. 3.

A.W. üi. 6.
They brought one Punch: a hungry lean-fac'd villain,
A mere anatomy, a mountebank,
A thread-bare juggler, a fortune-teller ;
A needy, hollow-ey'd, sharp-looking wretch,
A living dead man: this pernicious slave,
Forsooth, took on him as a conjuror;
And, gazing in mine eyes, feeling my pulse,
And with no face, as 'twere, out-facing me,
Cried out, I was possess'd.

Keep leets and law-days, and in sessions sit

Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.

I feel within me
A peace above all earthly dignities,
A still and quiet conscience.
H. VIII. ii. 2 You shall see, anon ; 'tis a knavish piece of work ; but what of that? Your majesty, and we that have free souls, it touches us not: Let the galld jade wince, our withers are unwrung.
H, iii. 2.
Why, let the stricken deer go weep,
The hart ungalled play;
For some must watch, while some must sleep;

And there I see such black and grained spots
As will not leave their tinct.
H. iii. 4.
Methought the billows spoke and told me of it;
The winds did sing it to me; and the thunder,
That deep and dreadful organ-pipe, pronounc'd
The name of Prosper ; it did bass my trespass,
Therefore my son i' th' ooze is bedded.

Soft; I did but dream,
0, coward conscience, how dost thou affright me!

As she is troubled with thick-coming fancies,

Cleanse the foul bosom of that perilous stuff,
Which weighs upon the heart?'
M. v. 3.

This deity in my bosom: twenty consciences,
That stand 'twixt me and Milan, candied be they,
And melt, ere they molest.

His time doth take :
If of life you keep a care,
Shake off slumber, and beware :
T. ii. 2,
Sham’st thou to show thy dangerous brow by night,
When evils are most free? O, then, by day,
Where wilt thou find a cavern dark enough
To mask thy monstrous visage ? Seek none, conspiracy,
Hide it in smiles and affability:
For if thou path thy native semblance on,
Not Erebus itself were dim enough
To hide thee from prevention.
J. C. ii. 1.
It is a purpos'd thing, and grows by plot,
To curb the will of the nobility :-
Suffer it, and live with such as cannot rule
And never will be rul'd.
C.iii. 1. CONSTANCY (See also FIDELITY).
The fineness of which metal is not found
In fortune's love ; for then, the bold and coward,
The wise and fool, the artist and unread,
The hard and soft, seem all affin'd and kin;
But in the wind and tempest of her frown,
Distinction, with a broad and powerful fan,
Puffing at all, winnows the light away;
And what hath mass, or matter, by itself
Lies, rich in virtue, and unmingled.

To the last gasp, with truth and loyalty. A. Y. ii. 3.

Drawing all things to it.

No planet is of mine.

Of whose true fix'd, and vesting quality,
There is no fellow in the firmament.
J.C. iii. 1.
Here I kneel.
If e'er my wish did trespass 'gainst his love,
Either in discourse, in thought, or actual deed ;
Or that mine eyes, mine ears, or any sense,
Delighted them in any other form;
Or that I do not yet, and ever did,
And ever will,-though he do shake me off
