And then, the justice; In fair round belly, with good capon lined, With eyes severe, and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances, And so he plays his part. Shakespeare.As You Like It, Act II. Scene 7. (Jaques on the Seven Ages of Man.)
A fine and slender net the spider weaves, Which little and light animals receives; And if she catch a common bee or fly, They with a piteous groan and murmur die; But if a wasp or hornet she entrap, They tear her cords like Sampson and escape; So, like a fly, the poor offender dies, But, like the wasp, the rich escapes and flies. Denham.Of Justice, near the end, and La Fontaine. Fable 3.
