Strange
 
’Twas strange, ’twas passing strange,
’Twas pitiful; ’twas wonderous pitiful;
She wish’d she had not heard it.
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act I. Scene 3. (The Moor’s defence before the Senate.)

But ’tis strange:
And oftentimes to win us to our harm,
The instruments of darkness tell us truths;
Win us with honest trifles, to betray us
In deepest consequence.
        Shakespeare.—Macbeth, Act I. Scene 3. (Banquo to Macbeth.)
