And hangs on Dian's temple.

They say, this town is full of cozenage ;
As, nimble jugglers, that deceive the eye,

Disguised cheaters, prating mountebanks,
And many such like libertines of sin.

I can be patient.

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 Cupids,
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.

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.

Opening on Neptune with fair blessed beams
Turns into yellow gold his salt-green streams. 1. 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.

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).

Full of high feeding, madly hath broke loose,
And bears down all before him.
