I would croak like a raven; I would bode, I would bode.
CROWN, REGAL (See also KINGS).
O polish'd perturbation! golden care!
A thousand flatteries sit within thy crown,
H. IV. PT. II. iv. 4.
R. II. ii. 1.
Do but think
How sweet a thing it is to wear a crown;
And all that poets feign of bliss and joy. H. IV. PT. III. i. 2.
By what by-paths, and indirect crook'd ways,
I met this crown; and I myself know well,
How troublesome it sat upon my head. H. IV. PT. 11. iv. 4
I spake unto the crown as having sense,
And thus upbraided it: The care on thee depending,
Hath fed upon the body of my father;
But thou, most fine, most honour'd, most renown'd,
To try with it, as with an enemy,
That had before my face murder'd my father,-
H. IV. PT. II. iv. 4.
O, be thou damn'd, inexorable dog!
That souls of animals infuse themselves
M.V. iv. 1.

Some Cupids kill with arrows, some with traps. M. A. iii. 1. CURIOSITIES.
I pray you, let us satisfy our eyes
With the memorials and the things of fame,
O'tis a foul thing, when a cur cannot keep himself in all companies! I would have, as one should say, one that taketh upon him to be a dog indeed, to be, as it were, a dog at all things. T. G. iv. 4.
I would the gods had nothing else to do,
When a man's servant shall play the cur with him, look you, it goes hard: one that I brought up a puppy; one that I saved from drowning, when three or four of his blind brothers and sisters went to it! I have taught him-even as one would say precisely,-Thus I would teach a dog.
T.G. iv. 4.

I will speak daggers to her, but use none.
No, when light-wing'd toys
Of feather'd Cupid seel with wanton dullness
That my disports corrupt and taint my business,
Make head against my estimation.
A woman impudent and mannish grown
Is not more loath'd than an effeminate man
H. iii. 2.
In time of action. I stand condemn'd for this;
There Monitaurs and ugly treason lurk.

France, thou mayest hold a serpent by the tongue,
A fasting tyger safer by the tooth
Than keep in peace that hand which thou dost hold.
