The clogging burden of a guilty soul.

How tartly that gentleman looks! I never can see him but I am heart-burned an hour after.

M. A. ii. 1. SPARE FIGURE.

He was the very genius of famine. H. IV. PT. II. iii. 4.

You might have truss'd him, and all his apparel, into an eel-skin; the case of a treble hautboy was a mansion for him, a court; and now has he land and bees.

H. IV, PT. II. iii. 2. SPEECH (See also RecitatioN).

Before we proceed any further, hear me speak. C. i. 1.
His speech sticks in my heart.

A.C. i. 5. I would be loath to cast away my speech; for, besides that it is excellently well penn'd, I have taken great pains to con it.

T. N. i. 5.
'Tis well said again;
And 'tis a kind of good deed, to say well:
And yet words are no deeds.

H. VIII. ïü. 2.
Spoke like a spriteful noble gentleman. K. J. iv. 2.

And when he speaks
'Tis like a chime a mending; with terms unsquar'd,
Which, from the tongue of roaring Typhon dropt,
Would seem hyperboles.

0, I am scalded with my violent motion
And spleen of speed to see your majesty. K. J. v.7.

Bloody with spurring; fiery red with haste, R. II. ii. 3. SPIRITS (See also APPARITIONS, Ghosts, Elves, FAIRIES).

Why, now I see there's mettle in thee; and even, from this instant, do build on thee a better opinion than ever before.

That gallant spirit hath aspir'd the clouds. R. J. iii. 1.

But will they come when you do call for them ?

Show his eyes, and grieve his heart;
Come like shadows, so depart.

And damn'd all those that trust them.

And do my spiriting gently.

T. N. ii.3. Nay, I'll come; if I lose a scruple of this sport, let me be boiled to death with melancholy.

T.N. ii. 5. Very reverend sport, truly; and done in the testimony of a good conscience.

L. L. iv. 2.


That sport best pleases, that doth least know how:
Where zeal strives to content, and the contents
Die in the zeal of them which it presents,
Their form confounded makes most form in mirth;
When great things labouring perish in their birth.

L. L. v. 2.
It is admirable pleasures and fery honest knaveries.

M.W. iv. 4.
There's no such sport, as 'sport by sport o'erthrown;
To make theirs ours, and ours none but our own:
So shall we stay, mocking intended game,
And they, well mock'd, depart away with shame.

L. L. v. 2. I'll make one in a dance, or so; or I will play on the tabor to the worthies, and let them dance the hay. L. L. v. 1.


Thus men may grow wiser every day! it is the first time that ever I heard, breaking of ribs was sport for ladies.

A.Y. i. 2. SPOT (See also Blot, STAIN). With a spot I damn him.

J.C. iv. 1. SPRING.

When daisies pied, and violets blue,

And lady-smocks all silver-white,
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue,
Do paint the meadows with delight,

The cuckoo then, on every tree,
Mocks married men, for thus sings he,
Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo. O word of fear,

Unpleasing to a married ear!
When shepherds pipe on oaten straws,

And merry larks are ploughmen's clocks,
When turtles tread, and rooks, and daws,
And maidens bleach their summer smocks.
The cuckoo then, &c.

L. L. v.2.
When well-apparell’d April on the heel
Of limping winter treads.


O Proserpina,
For the flowers now, that, frighted, thou let'st fall
From Dis's waggon! daffodils
That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty ; violets, dim,
But sweeter than the lids of Juno's eyes,


Or Cytherea's breath; pale primroses,
That die unmarried, ere they can behold
Bright Phoebus in his strength, a malady
Most incident to maids; bold oxlips, and
The crown imperial ; lilies of all kinds,
The flower-de-luce being one.

W.T. iv. 3.
STAIN (See also Blot, Spor).
Out, damned spot: out, I say.

All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweaten this little hand.

The more fair and crystal is the sky,
The uglier seem the clouds that in it fly. R. II. i. 1.

Like a strange soul upon the Stygian banks,
Staying for waftage.

The stars above us govern our condition. K. L. iv. 3.
Diana's waiting women.

T.C. v. 2.
Convey, the wise it call : Steal l foh; a fico for the phrase.

M.W. i. 3.

Therefore, to horse ;
And let us not be dainty of leave-taking,
But shift away: There's warrant in that theft,

Which steals itself, when there's no mercy left. M. ii. 3. STRANGE OCCURRENCE.

If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.

T. N. ii. 4. STRATAGEM. Saint Dennis bless this happy stratagem.

H.VI. PT. I. iii. 2. STRENGTH.

0, it is excellent
To have a giant's strength ; but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.

M. M. ii. 2.

Worthy fellows; and like to prove most sinewy swordsmen.

A.W. ii. 1. STRIKING.

This cuff was but to knock at your ear, and beseech listening.

T. S. iv. l. STUDY (See also Light).

Study is like the heaven's glorious sun,

That will not be deep search’d with saucy looks ;
Small have continual plodders ever won,

Save base authority, from others' books. L. L. i1.
Why, universal plodding prisons up
The nimble spirits in the arteries;
As motion, and long-during action, tires
The sinewy vigour of the traveller.

L. L. iv. 3.
So study evermore is overshot;
While it doth study to have what it would,
It doth forget to do the thing it should :
And when it hath the thing it hunteth most,
'Tis won, as towns with fire; so won, so lost. L. L. i1.

Biron.- What is the end of study?

King.- Why, that to know, which else we should not know.

Biron.—Things hid and barr'd, you mean, from common sense? King.-Ay, that is study's god-like recompense.


I have drugg'd their possets
That death and nature do contend about them
Whether they live or die.

M. i. 2.
How runs the stream ?
Or I am mad, or else this is a dream.

T. N. iv. I. STYLE.

Why, 'tis a boisterous and cruel style,
A style for challengers.

Condition ! What good condition can a treaty find l'the part that is at mercy ?

C. i. 10. Why this it is, when men are rul'd by women. R. III. i. 1.
