But those that write in rhyme still make
The one verse for the other’s sake;
For one for sense, and one for rhyme,
I think ’s sufficient at one time.

    Some have been beaten till they know
What wood a cudgel ’s of by th’ blow;
Some kick’d until they can feel whether
A shoe be Spanish or neat’s leather.

More followers than a thief to the gallows.

Say fools for arguments use wagers.

As fire in antique Roman urns. 1

But so much money as ’t will bring?

Then spare the rod and spoil the child. 2

Of Thetis taken out his nap,
And, like a lobster boil’d, the morn
From black to red began to turn.

    Have always been at daggers-drawing,
And one another clapper-clawing.

Too rich a pearl for carnal swine.

    Why should not conscience have vacation
As well as other courts o’ th’ nation?

Like hidden lamps in old sepulchral urns.
