Marmion. Canto vi. St. 17.
O what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practise to deceive.

Paradise and the Peri.
But the trail of the serpent is over them all.

Come, ye disconsolate.
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Epistle to a Young Friend.
An Atheist's laugh 's a poor exchange
For Deity offended!

And may you better reck the rede,
Than ever did th' adviser!

Cymon and Iphigenia.
And raw in fields the rude militia swarms.

Stout once a month they march, a blustering band,
And ever, but in times of need, at hand.

Of seeming arms to make a short essay,

Then hasten to be drunk, the business of the day.

Upon a Giant's angling.
And sat upon a rock, and bobb'd for whale.


As you like it. Act ii. Sc. 7.
"Which is as dry as the remainder biscuit
After a voyage.

Oymbeline. Act iii. Sc. 3. Prouder than rustling in unpaid-for silk.

Taming of the Shrew. Act i. Sc. 1. No profit grows, where is no pleasure ta'en; In brief, sir, study what you most affect.

All's Well that ends Well. Act v. Sc. 3.
All impediments in fancy's course
Are motives of more fancy.

First Part of Henry IV. Act iv. Sc. 1. And witch the world with noble horsemanship.

Antony and Cleopatra. Act iv. Sc. 4.
The spirit of youth
That means to be of note, begins betimes.

Much Ado about Nothing. Act ii. Sc. i. As merry as the day is long.
