Like to a double cherry, seeming parted;

Two lovely berries molded on one stem.

Much ado about nothing, A. 5, S. 1. I never knew yet, but rebuke and check was the reward of valour. Do you think me a swallow, an arrow, or a bullet? Have I, in my poor and old motion, the expedition of thought? I have speeded hither with tlie very extremeft inch of possibility.

There is not work enough for all our hands;
Scarce blood enough in all their fickly veins,

And sheath for lack of sport : let us but blow on

them, The vapour of our valour will o'erturn them.

We are beastly ; subtle as the fox, for prey;

We make a quire, as doth the prison's bird,
And sing our bondage freely. Cymbeline, A. 3, S. 3.

- To be furious,

Restores his heart : when valour preys on reasor.
It eats the sword it fights with.

As hotly and as nobly with thy love,
As ever in ambitious strength I did .
