And each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon the fretful porcupine.


Often to our comfort shall we find
The sharded beetle in a safer hold
Than is the full-wing'd eagle.

Cym. i. 3.
I have sounded the very base string of humility.

H. IV. PT. 1. q. 4.
I heard him swear,
Were he to stand for consul, never would he
Appear i' the market-place, nor on him put
The napless vesture of humility.

C.ü. 1.
Wilt thou, pupil-like,
Take thy correction mildly, kiss the rod,
And fawn on rage with base humility ?

R. II. v. 1.
O happy 'vantage of a kneeling knee.

R. II, v.3. HUMOUR.

“The humour of it," quoth 'a! here's a fellow frights humour out of its wits.

M.IT, *. l. I'll tell thee what, prince; a college of wit-crackers cannot flout me out of my humour.

M. A. v. 4. I am now of all humours, that have showed themselves humours, since the old days of goodman Adam, to the pupil age of this present twelve o'clock at midnight.

H. IV. PT. 1. ii. 4. HUNTING.

Say, thou wilt course; thy greyhounds are as swift
As breathed stags, ay, fleeter than the roe. T. S. IND. 2.
Come, shall we go and kill us venison ?
And yet it irks me, the poor dappled fools,
Being native burghers of this desert city,
Should, in their own confines, with forked heads
Have their round haunches gor'd.

A. Y. ii. 1.
My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind,
So flew'd, so sanded; and their heads are hung
With ears that sweep away the morning dew;
Crook-knee'd, and dew-lapp'd like Thessalian bulls;
Slow in pursuit, but match'd in mouth like bells,
Each under each. A cry more tuneable
Was never holla'd to, nor cheer'd with horn. M. N. iv.1.
Uncouple in the western valley; go :
Despatch, I say, and find the forester.


We will, fair queen, up to the mountain's top,
And mark the musical confusion
Of hounds and echo in conjunction.

M. N. iv. 1.
I was with Hercules, and Cadmus, once,
When in a wood of Crete they bay'd the bear
With hounds of Sparta : never did I hear
Such gallant chiding; for, besides the groves,
The skies, the fountains, every region near
Seem'd all one mutual cry: I never heard

So musical a discord, such sweet thunder. M. N. iv. 1.
Sun-burnt sicklemen.

T. iv. 1. HYPOCRISY (See also DISSIMULATION, QUoting SCRIPTURE). Now step I forth to whip hypocrisy.

L. L. iv. 3.
A huge translation of hypocrisy.

L. L. v. 2.
Ah, that deceit should steal such gentle shapes,
And with a virtuous visor hide deep vice! R. III. ii. 2.

A knave very voluble ; no further conscionable, than in putting on the mere form of civil and humane seeming.

0. ii. 1. Knavery cannot, sure, hide itself in such reverence.

M. A. ii. 3.
O Buckingham, beware of yonder dog ;
Look, when he fawns, he bites; and, when he bites,
His venom tooth will rankle to the death;
Have not to do with him, beware of him;
Sin, death, and hell have set their marks on him;
And all their ministers attend on him.

R. III. i. 3.
Show men dutiful ?
Why, so didst thou: or seem they grave and learned ?
Why, so didst thou: come they of noble family?
Why, so didst thou: seom they religious ?
Why, so didst thou: or are they spare in diet,
Free from gross passion, or of mirth, or anger;
Constant in spirit, not swerving with the blood;
Garnish'd and deck'd in modest compliment;
Not working with the eye, without the ear,
And, but in purged judgment, trusting neither?
Such, and so finely bolted, didst thou seem. H.V. ii. 2.
Seems he a dove? his feathers are but borrow'd,
For he's disposed as the hateful raven.
Is he a lamb ? his skin is surely lent him,
For he's inclin'd as are the ravenous wolves.
Who cannot steal a shape, that means deceit?


Take heed my lord; the welfare of us all
Hangs on the cutting short that fraudful man.

H.VI. Pt. 11. iii. 1,
Tut, I can counterfeit the deep tragedian ;
Speak, and look back, and pry on every side,
Tremble and start at wagging of a straw,

Intending deep suspicion: ghastly looks Are at my service, like enforced smiles;

And both are ready in their offices,
At any time, to grace my stratagems. R. III. üü. 5.
Be not you spoke with, but by mighty suit:
And look you get a prayer-book in your band,
And stand between two churchmen, good my lord;
For on that ground I'll make a holy descant:
And be not easily won to our requests ;
Play the maid's part, still answer nay, and take it.

R. III. iii. 7.
There is no vice so simple, but assumes
Some mark of virtue on his outward parts. M. V. iii. 2.

This outward-sainted deputy,
Whose settled visage and deliberate word
Nips youth i' the head, and follies doth enmew,
As falcon doth the fowl,—is yet a devil. M. M. ii. 1.

Gloster's show
Beguiles him, as the mournful crocodile
With sorrow snares relenting passengers;
Or as the snake, roll'd in a flowering bank,
With shining checker'd slough, doth sting a child,
That, for the beauty, thinks it excellent.

H.VI. PT. II. ii. 1.
Smooth runs the water, where the brook is deep;
And in his simple show he harbours treason,
The fox barks not, when he would steal the lamb.
No, no, my sovereign ; Gloster is a man
Unsounded yet, and full of deep deceit.

H.VI. Pt. 11. iii. 1.
So smooth he daub'd his vice with show of virtue,
That,-his apparent open guilt omitted-
He liv'd from all attainder of suspect.

R. III. ij. 5.
Ah, that deceit should steal such gentle shapes,
And with a virtuous visor hide deep rice! R. III, ü. 2.
O, what authority and show of truth
Can cunning sin cover itself withal !

M. A. iv. 1.


And thus I clothe my naked villainy
With old odd ends, stol'n forth of holy writ;
And seem a saint when most I play the devil. R. III. i. 3.
The secret mischief that I set abroach,
I lay unto the grievous charge of others. R. III. i. 3.
I do the wrong, and first begin to brawl. R. III. i. 3.

Your great goodness, out of holy pity,
Absolv'd him with an axe.

H. VIII. iii. 2.

J & J.

The little dogs and all,
Tray, Blanch, and Sweetheart, see, they bark at me.

K. L. iii. 6. JARGON.

They have been at a great feast of languages, and stolen the scraps.

L. L. v. 1. IDOLATRY.

'Tis mad idolatry, That makes the service greater than the god. T.C. ii. 2. This is the liver vein, which makes flesh a deity;

A green goose, a goddess : pure, pure idolatry. L. L. iv. 3.
How many fond fools serve mad jealousy! C. E. ii. 1.

Trifles, light as air,
Are, to the jealous, confirmations strong
As proofs of holy writ.

0. ii. 3.
Good, my lord, be cur'd
Of this diseas'd opinion, and betimes;
For 'tis most dangerous.

W.T. i. 2.
Look where he comes ! Not poppy, nor mandragora,
Nor all the drowsy syrups of the world,
Shall ever medicine thee to that sweet sleep
Which thou ow'd'st yesterday.

0. ii. 3.
How blest am I
In my just censure, in my true opinion !
Alack, for lesser knowledge! How accurs’d,
In being so bless'd !--There may be in the cup
A spider steep'd, and one may drink; depart,
And yet partake no venom ; for his knowledge
Is not infected: but if one present


The abhorr'd ingredient to his eye, make known
How he hath drunk, he cracks his gorge, his sides,
With violent hefts :-I have drunk, and seen the spider.

W.T, ii. 1.
Of one, that lov'd not wisely, but too well;
Of one, not easily jealous, but being wrought,
Perplex'd in the extreme.

0. v. 2. That same knave, Ford, her husband, hath the finest mad devil of jealousy in him, master Brook, that ever govern'd frenzy.

M.W. v. 1.
Poor, and content, is rich, and rich enough;
But riches, fineless, is as poor as winter,
To him that ever fears he shall be poor.

0. üi. 3.
O beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock
The meat it feeds on : That cuckold lives in bliss,
Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger;
But, 0, what damned minutes tells he o'er,
Who dotes, yet doubts ; suspects, yet strongly loves !

0. iii. 3.
These are the forgeries of jealousy:
And never, since the middle summer's spring,
Met we on hill, in dale, forest, or mead,
By paved fountain, or by rushy brook,
Or on the beached margent of the sea,
To dance our ringlets to the whistling wind,
But with thy brawls thou hast disturbid our sport.

M. N. Ü. 2.
Self-harming jealousy.

C. E. ï. 1.
The venom clamours of a jealous woman
Poison more deadly than a mad dog's tooth. C. E. v. 1.
The shrug, the hum, or ha ; these pretty brands,
That calumny doth use :40, I am out,
That mercy for calumny will seer
Virtue itself ;-these shrugs, these hums, and has,
When you have said, she's goodly, come between,
Ere you can say she's honest.

W.T. ï. 1.
The forgeries of jealousy.

N. N. i. 2.
How novelty may move, and parts with person,
Alas, a kind of godly jealousy
(Which, I beseech you, call a virtuous sin)
Makes me afeard.

T.C. iv. 4.
I will possess him with yellowness.

M.W. i. 3.
