Write the vision, and make it plain upon the tables, that he may run that readeth it.

That ’tis our shame and misery not to learn,
Shine by the side of every path we tread
With such a lustre, he that runs may read.

To run a-muck and tilt at all I meet.

But yet I run before my horse to market.
        Shakespeare.—King Richard III., Act I. Scene 2. (Gloster.)
