Mine enemy's dog,
Tho' he had bit me, should have stood that night

Against my fire. *

Where I could not be honest, I never yet was valiant.

There's nought so vile that on the earth doth live,
But to the earth some special good doth give;
Noraught so good, but, strain'd from that fair use,
Revolts from true birth, stumbling on abuse.

- Heaven and yourself
Had part in this fair maid; now Heaven hath all;
Your part in her you could not keep from death,
But Heaven keeps his part in eternal life.

'Tis sweet and commendable
To give these mourning duties to your father;
But, you must know, your father lost a father,
That father his; and the survivor bound
In filial obligation, for some term
To do obsequious sorrow. But to persevere
In obstinate condolement, is a course
Which shows a will most incorrect to Heaven.

Foul deeds will rise,
Tho' all the earth o'erwhelm them, to men's eyes.

Virtue itself”scapes not calumnious strokes;

Be wary then ; best safety lies in fear. **

Bet • The Gra But





Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar; - The friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hooks of steel; But do not dull thy palm with entertainment Of each new-hatch’d unfledg’d comrade.

Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

Neither a borrower, nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

To thine own self be true; And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Taint not thy mind, nor let thy soul contrive
Against thy mother aught; leave her to Heaven,
And to those thorns that in her bosom lodge,
To prick and sting her.

There are morethings in heaven and earth, Horatio Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Murder, tho' it have no tongue, will speak With most miraculous organ.

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all.

There's a divinity that shapes our ends, Rough-hew them how we will. That is mostcertain.

How poor are they that have not patience 2
To mourn a mischief that is past and gone
Is the next way to draw new mischief on.
