Captain! thou abominable cheater, art thou not ashamed to be called captain ? If captains were of my mind, they would truncheon you out, for taking their names upon you before you have earned them. You a captain, you slave! for what? A captain! these villains will make the word captain odious: therefore, captains had need look to it.

H. IV. Pt. 11. ii. 4. CAPTIOUSNESS.

You must needs learn, lord, to amend this fault.
Though sometimes it show greatness, courage, blood,
(And that's the dearest grace it renders you)
Yet oftentimes it doth present harsh rage,
Defect of manners, want of government,
Pride, haughtiness, opinion, and disdain:
The least of which haunting a nobleman,
Loseth men's hearts; and leaves behind a stain
['pon the beauty of all parts besides,

Beguiling them of commendation. H. IV. PT. I. iii. 1. CARE.

And where care lodges sleep will never lie;
But where unbruised youth with unstuff”d brain
Doth couch his limbs, there golden sleep doth reign.

We, in the world's wide mouth
Live scandaliz'd, and foully spoken of. H. IV. PT. 1. i. 3.
Why, who cries out on pride,
That can therein tax any private party?
Doth it not flow as hugely as the sea,
Till that the weary very means do ebb?
What woman in the city do I name,
When that I say, The city woman bears
The cost of princes on unworthy shoulders ?
Who can come in and say that I mean her,
When such a one as she, such is her neighbour ?
Or what is he of basest function,
That says his bravery is not on my cost,
(Thinking that I mean him,) but therein suits
His folly to the mettle of my speech ?
There, then; How, what then? Let me see wherein
My tongue hath wrong’d him; if it do him right,
Then he hath wrong'd himself; if he be free,
Why then, my taxing like a wild-goose flies,
Unclaim'd of any man.

On more mechanic compliment.


Ceres, most bounteous lady, thy rich lees
Of wheat, rye, barley, vetches, oats, and pease ;
Thy turfy mountains where live nibbling sheep,
And flat meads thatch'd with stover, them to keep;
Thy banks with peonied and lilied brims,
Which spungy April at thy hest betrims,
To make cold nymphs, chaste crowns; and dark broom

Whose shadow the dismissed bachelor loves,
Being lass-lorn; thy pole-clipt vineyard ;
And thy sea-marge, sterile, and rocky hard,
Where thou thyself dost air : The queen o’sky,
Whose watery arch, and messenger, am I,
Bids thee leave these ; and with her sovereign grace,
Here, on this grass-plot, in this very place,
To come and sport.
