BUT thou, O Hope, with eyes so fair,
And bade the lovely scenes at distance hail!
A soft responsive voice was heard at every close,
XIII. HOPE OF GOOD TIDINGS.
O HOPE, Sweet flatterer, whose delusive touch
XIV. HATRED CURSING THE OBJECT HATED.
POISON be their drink!
Gall, worse than gall, the daintiest meat they taste!
XV. HATRED OF A RIVAL IN GLORY.
He is my bane, I cannot bear him;
One heaven and earth can never hold us both;
As if two suns should meet in one meridian,
XVI. ANGER AND THREATENING.
Whom I have ever honoured as my king,
Kent. Be Kent unmannerly when Lear is mad.
I'll tell thee thou dost evil.
Lear. Hear me, rash man!—on thy allegiance hear me.
And kingdom. If, when three days are expired,
By Jupiter, this shall not be revoked.
XVII. NARRATIVE IN SUPPRESSED ANGER.
My liege, I did deny no prisoners,
Fresh as a bridegroom; and his chin, new reap'd,
And 'twixt his finger and his thumb he held
gave his nose, and took't away again ;-
With many holiday and lady terms,
He questioned me: among the rest demanded
I then all smarting with my wounds, being gall'd
Out of my grief and my impatience
Answer'd neglectingly-I know not what
He should, or should not; for he made me mad,
To see him shine so brisk, and smell so sweet,
And talk so like a waiting gentlewoman,
Of guns, and drums, and wounds (heav'n save the mark!)
And telling me the sovereign'st thing on earth,
And I beseech you, let not his report,
Betwixt my love and your high majesty.-Henry IV.
If it will feed nothing else, it will feed my revenge. He hath disgraced me, and hindered me of half a million; laughed at my losses, mocked at my gains, scorned my nation, thwarted my bargains, cooled my friends, heated mine enemies; and what's his reason? I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Christian is? if you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? if we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge. If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge. The villany you teach me I will execute; and it shall go hard, but I will better the instruction. Merchant of Venice.
I KNOW not: if they speak but truth of her
Time hath not yet so dried this blood of mine,
Nor fortune made such havoc of my means,
To quit me of them thoroughly.
Much Ado about Nothing.
Он, I could play the woman with mine eyes,
Bring thou this fiend of Scotland, and myself;
ALIVE! in triumph! and Mercutio slain!
And fire-ey'd fury be my conduct now!-
Romeo and Juliet.
XXII.-REPROACHING WITH STUPIDITY AND INGRATITUDE.
WHEREFORE rejoice? What conquest brings he home? What tributaries follow him to Rome,
To grace in captive bonds his chariot wheels?
You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things!
