|With devotions visage,|
And pious action, we do sugar oer
The devil himself.
Shakespeare.Hamlet, Act III. Scene 1. (Polonius to Ophelia and the King.)
| O the cursed devil,|
Which doth present us with all other sins
Thrice candied oer.
Webster.The White Devil. (Vittoria to Zanche.)
|Seeming devotion does but gild a knave,|
Thats neither faithful, honest, just, nor brave;
But where religion does with virtue join,
It makes a hero like an angel shine.
Waller.A fragment on Ovid.
