Comfort
 
That comfort comes too late;
’Tis like a pardon after execution;
That gentle physic, given in time, had cur’d me;
But now I am past all comforts here, but prayers.
        Shakespeare.—King Henry VIII., Act IV. Scene 2. (Katherine to Capucius.)

He receives comfort like cold porridge.
        Shakespeare.—Tempest, Act II. Scene 1. (Sebastian to Alonzo.)
