460
    The law hath not been dead, though it hath slept.
          Measure for Measure. Act ii. Sc. 2.
461
    O, it is excellent
To have a giant’s strength; but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.
          Measure for Measure. Act ii. Sc. 2.
462
    But man, proud man,
Drest in a little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he ’s most assured,
His glassy essence, like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven
As make the angels weep.
          Measure for Measure. Act ii. Sc. 2.
463
    That in the captain ’s but a choleric word
Which in the soldier is flat blasphemy.
          Measure for Measure. Act ii. Sc. 2.
464
    Our compell’d sins
Stand more for number than for accompt.
          Measure for Measure. Act ii. Sc. 4.
465
    The miserable have no other medicine,
But only hope.
          Measure for Measure. Act iii. Sc. 1.
466
    A breath thou art,
Servile to all the skyey influences.
          Measure for Measure. Act iii. Sc. 1.
467
    Palsied eld.
          Measure for Measure. Act iii. Sc. 1.
468
    The sense of death is most in apprehension;
And the poor beetle, that we tread upon,
In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
As when a giant dies.
          Measure for Measure. Act iii. Sc. 1.
469
    The cunning livery of hell.
          Measure for Measure. Act iii. Sc. 1.
470
    Ay, but to die, and go we know not where;
To lie in cold obstruction and to rot;
This sensible warm motion to become
A kneaded clod; and the delighted spirit
To bathe in fiery floods, or to reside
In thrilling region of thick-ribbed ice;
To be imprison’d in the viewless winds,
And blown with restless violence round about
The pendent world.
          Measure for Measure. Act iii. Sc. 1.
