Villainy
 
Calm, thinking villains, whom no faith could fix,
Of crooked counsels and dark politics.
        Pope—Temple of Fame. L. 410.
  1
O villainy! Ho! let the door be lock’d;
Treachery! seek it out.
        Hamlet. Act V. Sc. 2. L. 322.
  2
And thus I clothe my naked villainy
With old odd ends, stol’n out of holy writ,
And seem a saint, when most I play the devil.
        Richard III. Act I. Sc. 3. L. 336.
  3
Villain and he be many miles asunder.
        Romeo and Juliet. Act III. Sc. 5. L. 82.
  4
              The learned pate
Ducks to the golden fool: all is oblique;
There’s nothing level in our cursed natures,
But direct villainy.
        Timon of Athens. Act IV. Sc. 3. L. 17.
