Perjury
 
                    At lovers’ perjuries,
They say, Jove laughs.
Shakespeare.    
  1
  Shall I lay perjury upon my soul? No, not for Venice!
Shakespeare.    
  2
        And hast thou sworn on every slight pretence,
Till perjuries are common as bad pence,
While thousands, careless of the damning sin,
Kiss the book’s outside, who ne’er look within?
Cowper.    
  3
  Fear not to swear; the winds carry the perjuries of lovers without effect over land and sea, thanks to Jupiter. The father of the gods himself has denied effect to what foolish lovers in their eagerness have sworn.
Tibullus.    
  4
