KING’s Evil,—continued.

Ay, Sir; there are a crew of wretched souls,
That stay his cure; their malady convinces
The great assay of art; but, at his touch,
Such sanctity hath heaven given his hand,
They presently amend.

M. iv. 3. KISS.

0, a kiss
Long as my exile, sweet as my revenge !
Now, by the jealous queen of heaven, that kiss
I carried from thee, dear; and my true lip
Hath virgin'd it e'er since.

C. v. 3.
Very good ; well kissed ! an excellent courtesy.

0. ii. 1.
This done, he took the bride about the neck;
And kiss'd her lips with such a clamorous smack,
That, at the parting, all the church did echo.

T.S. iii. 2.
Teach not thy lip such scorn; for it was made
For kissing, lady, not for such contempt.

R.III, i. 2. KISSES, Cold.

He hath bought a pair of cast lips of Diana; a nun of winter's sisterhood kisses not more religiously; the very ice of chastity is in them.

A. Y. iii. 4.
And his kissing is as full of sanctity as the touch of holy bread.

A. Y. iii. 4.
EXPRESSIVE.
I understand thy kisses, and thou mine,
And that's a feeling disputation.

H. IV. PT. I. ii. l. KNAVES.

A knave; a rascal, an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy worstedstocking knave ; a lily-liver’d, action-taking knave; a whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; a one-trunk-inheriting slave : one whom I will beat into clamorous whining, if thou denyest the least syllable of thy additions.

K. L. ii. 2. A shrewd knave, and an unhappy.

A. W. iv. 5. A slippery and subtle knave; a finder out of occasions ; that has an eye can stamp and counterfeit advantages, though true advantage never present itself: a devilish knave!

0. i. 1. What a pestilent knave is this same!

R. J. iv. 5. I grant your worship, that he is a knave, Sir; but yet, God forbid, Sir, but a knave should have some countenance at his friend's request. An honest man, Sir, is able to speak for himself, when a knave is not. I have served your worship truly, Sir, for this eight years; and if I cannot once or twice in a quarter bear out a knave against an honest man, I have but very little credit with your worship. The knave is mine honest friend, Sir; therefore, I beseech your worship, let him be countenanced.

H. IV. PT. II. v. 1.

KNAVES,-continued.
A beetle-headed, flap-ear'd knave.

T. S. iv. l.
Use his men well, for they are arrant knaves, and will backbite.

H. IV. PT. II. v. I.
That such a slave as this should wear a sword,
Who wears no honesty. Such smiling rogues as these,
Like rats, oft bite the holy cords atwain,
Which are too intrinse t' unloose.

K. L. ii. 2.
By holy Mary, Butts, there's knavery.

H. VIII. v. 2. KNIGHTHOOD.

Sweet knight, thou art now one of the greatest men in the realm.

H. IV. Pt. II. v. 3.
Well, now can I make any Joan a lady:
Good-den, Sir Richard,-God-a-mercy, fellow ;-
And if his name be George, I'll call him Peter ;
For new-made honour doth forget men's names ;
'Tis too respective, and too sociable,
For your conversion.

K. J. i. 1. He is knight, dubbed with unbacked rapier, and on carpet consideration.

T. N. ii. 4.
There lay he stretch'd along, like a wounded knight. A. Y. iii. 2.
KNIGHTS OF THE GARTER.
When first this order was ordain’d, my

lords,
Knights of the garter were of noble birth;
Valiant, and virtuous, full of haughty courage ;
Such as were grown to credit by the wars :
Not fearing death, nor shrinking for distress,
But always resolute in most extremes.
He then that is not furnish'd in this sort,
Doth but usurp the sacred name of knight,

Profaning this most honourable order: H. VI. Pt. 1. iv. I. KNOCKING.

Here's a knocking, indeed! If a man were porter of hell-gate, he should have old turning the key. Who's there, i' the name of Belzebub?

M. ii. 3. KNOTS IN TIMBER.

As knots, by the conflux of meeting sap,
Infect the sound pine, and divert his grain,
Tortive and errant from his course of growth.

T. C. i. 3. KNOWING Man.

This fellow's of exceeding honesty,
And knows all qualities with a learned spirit
Of human dealings.

0. ii. 3. Is this the man ? Is't you, Sir, that know things ? A.C. i. 2. KNOWLEDGE.

Too much to know, is to know nought but fame. L. L. i. 1.

L.

LABOUR IN VAIN.
Numbering sands and drinking oceans dry.

R. II. ï.2. You may as well go about to turn the sun to ice, by fanning in his face with a peacock's feather.

H. V. iv.l.
I have seen a swan
With bootless labour swim against the tide,
And spend her strength with over-matching waves.

H. VI. Pt. 111. 1.4. LABYRINTH.

Here's a maze trod, indeed,
Through forth-rights, and meanders!

T. iii.3.
LAMENTATIONS (See also SORROW, Tears).
Why should calamity be full of words ?

R.III. iv. 4.
Windy attorneys to their client woes,
Airy succeeders of intestate joys,
Poor breathing orators of miseries !
Let them have scope : though what they do impart,
Help nothing else, yet do they ease the heart. R. III. iv. 4.
Alas, poor Yorick !

H. v.l.
Wise men ne'er sit and wail their loss,
But cheerly seek how to redress their harms. H. VI, PT. III. v.4.
Cry, Trojans, cry! lend me ten thousand eyes,
And I will fill them with prophetic tears.
Virgins and boys, mid-age and wrinkled elders,
Soft infancy, that nothing canst but cry,
Add to my clamours ! let us pay betimes
A moiety of that mass of moan to come.

T. C. ii.2. LAND Owner.

He hath much land, and fertile :- 'Tis a chough; but, as I say, spacious in the possession of dirt.

H. v. 2. LANGUAGE, ENGAGING. He speaks holiday.

M. W. ii. 2. LARK.

The lark, whose notes do beat
The vaulty heaven so high above our heads.

R.J. iii.5. LATE HOURS.

Have you no wit, manners, nor honesty, but to gabble like tinkers at this time of night?

T. N. ii. 3. What doth gravity out of his bed at midnight!

H. IV. Pt. 1. i;. 4.
LATIN.
Away with him, away with him! He speaks Latin.

H. VI. Pt. II. iv, 2.
0, good, my lord, no Latin ;
I am not such a truant since my coming,
As not to know the language I have liv'd in. H. VIII. ii. 1.

laid up.

LATIN,-continued.

You do ill to teach the child such words : he teaches him to hick, and to hack, which they'll do fast enough of themselves; and to call horum ;-fye upon you !

M. W. iv. I. 0, I smell false Latin.

L.L. y.l. LAUGHTER. With his eyes in flood with laughter.

Cym. i.7. 0, you shall see him laugh, till his face be like a wet cloak, ill

H. IV. PT. II. v.l. With such a zealous laughter, so profound.

L. L. v.2.
Stopping the career of laughter with a sigh.

W. T. i. 2.
Making that idiot, laughter, keep men's eyes,
And strain their cheeks to idle merriment,
A passion hateful to my purposes.

K. J. iii.3.
O, I am stabb’d with laughter.

L, L. v.2.
More merry tears
The passion of loud laughter never shed.

M. N. v.l.
LAW (See also LITIGATION).
We have strict statutes and most biting laws.

M. M. i. 4.
When law can do no right,
Let it be lawful, that law bar no wrong.

K.J. ii. 1.
In law, what plea so tainted and corrupt,
But, being season'd with a gracious, voice,
Obscures the show of evil?.

M. V. iii. 2. Help, master, help ; here's a fish hangs in the net, like a poor man's right in the law; 'twill hardly come out.

P. P. i. l. The brain may devise laws for the blood ; but a hot temper leaps over a cold decree : such a hare is madness the youth, to skip o'er the meshes of good counsel the cripple.

M. V. i. 2.
We must not make a scarecrow of the law,
Setting it up to fear the birds of prey,
And let it keep one shape till custom make it
Their perch, and not their terror.

M. M. ü. I.
There is no power in Venice
Can alter a decree established :
'Twill be recorded for a precedent;
And many an error, by the same example,
Will rush into the state : it cannot be.

M. V. iv. l.
We are for law, he dies.

T.A. ii. 5.
It pleases time and fortune to lie heavy
Upon a friend of mine, who, in hot blood,
Hath stepp'd into the law, which is past depth
To those that, without heed, plunge into it.

T. A, iii. 5.
Now, as fond fathers,
Having bound up the threatening twigs of birch,

LAW,-continued.

Only to stick it in their children's sight,
For terror, not to use ; in time the rod
Becomes more mock'd than fear'd: so our decrees,
Dead to infiction, to themselves are dead;
And liberty plucks justice by the nose.

M, M. i. 4.
What's open made to justice,
That justice seizes. What know the laws,
That thieves do pass on thieves ? 'Tis very pregnant,
The jewel that we find we stoop and take it,
Because we see it ; but what we do not see,
We tread upon, and never think of it.

M. M. ii. 1.
The bloody book of law
You shall yourself read the bitter letter,
After your own sense.

0. i.3.
If by this crime he owes the law his life,
Why, let the war receiv’t in valiant gore ;
For law is strict, and war is nothing more.

T. A. iii, 5.
Faith, I have been a truant in the law;
And never yet could frame my will to it;
And, therefore, frame the law unto my will, H.VI. PT, I. ï. 4,

But, I pr’ythee, sweet wag, shall there be gallows standing in England when thou art king ?—and resolution thus fobb’d as it is, with the rusty curb of old father antic, the law ?

H. IV. PT, 1. i. 2.
ABUSE OF.
The usurer hangs the cozener.

K, L, iv. 6.
LAWYERS.
The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.

H. VI. pt. ii, iv, 2.
Do as adversaries in law, strive mightily,
But eat and drink as friends.

T.S. 1.2. LEADER.

Another of his fashion they have not ;
To lead their business.

0. i. 1. LEAN VISAGE.

Would he were fatter :-But I fear him not:-
Yet if my name were liable to fear,
I do not know the man I should avoid
So soon as that spare Cassius. He reads much ;
He is a great observer, and he looks
Quite through the deeds of men ; he loves no plays,
As thou dost, Antony; he hears no music :
Seldom he smiles ; and smiles in such a sort,
As if he mock'd himself, and scorn’d his spirit
That could be mov'd to smile at any thing.
Such men as he be never at heart's ease,
Whiles they behold a greater than themselves ;
And therefore are they very dangerous.

J.C. i. 2.
