'Tis one of those odd tricks which sorrow shoots
Out of the mind.

A.C. iv. 2.
A cypress, not a bosom,
Hides my poor heart.

T. N. ii. 1.
0, if you teach me to believe this sorrow,
Teach thou this sorrow how to make me die;
And let belief and life encounter so,
As doth the fury of two desperate men,
Which, in their very meeting, fall, and die.

K. J. iii. 1.
How ill all's here about my heart !

H. v. 2.
I will instruct my sorrows to be proud ;
For grief is proud and makes his owner stout,
To me, and to the state of my great grief,
Let kings assemble ; for my grief's so great,
That no supporter but the huge firm earth
Can hold it up; here I and sorrow sit ;
Here is my throne, bid kings come bow to it. K. J. ii. 1.

Cure her of that :
Canst thou not minister to a mind diseas'd;
Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow;
Raze out the written troubles of the brain ;
And with some sweet oblivious antidote,
Cleanse the foul bosom of that perilous stuff,
Which weighs upon the heart ?

The man that mocks at it, and sets it light.

As that which makes it.

heart bleeds.

W. T. ii. 3.

I heard virgin exclaim in.

Down, thou climbing sorrow, thy element's below. K. L. ii. 4.
But sorrow, that is couch'd in seeming gladness,
Is like that mirth fate turns to sudden sadness.

T. c. i. 1.
This sorrow's heavenly,
It strikes where it doth love.

0, v. 2.
And now and then an ample tear trill’d down
Her delicate cheek; it seem'd, she was a queen
Over her passion ; who, most rebel-like,
Sought to be king o'er her.

K. L. iv. 3.

SORROW, continued.

Her nature became as a prey to her grief; in fine, made a groan of her last breath, and now she sings in heaven. A. W. iv. 3. PARENTAL.

My grief
Stretches itself beyond the hour of death ;
The blood


from my heart, when I do shape,
In forms imaginary, the unguided days,
And rotten times that you shall look upon
When I am sleeping with my ancestors. H. IV. pr. ir. iv. 4.

One, whose subdu'd eyes,
Albeit unused to the melting mood,
Drop tears as fast as the Arabian trees,
Their medicinal gum.

The clogging burden of a guilty soul.

M. A. ii. 1. SPARE FIGURE. He was the very genius of famine.

H. IV. PT. II. iii. 4. You might have truss'd him, and all his apparel, into an eelskin ; the case of a treble hautboy was a mansion for him, a court ; and now has he land and beeves.

C. i. 1. His speech sticks in my heart.

And spleen of speed to see your majesty.

Out of the powerful regions under earth,
Help me this once.

T. N. ii. 3. Nay, I'll come ; if I lose a scruple of this sport, let me be boiled to death with melancholy.

T. N. ii.5. Very reverend sport, truly; and done in the testimony of a good conscience.

L. L. iv. 2.
That sport best pleases, that doth least know how :
Where zeal strives to content, and the contents
Die in the zeal of them which it presents,
Their form confounded makes most form in mirth;
When great things labouring perish in their birth. L. L. v. 2.
It is admirable pleasures and fery honest knaveries. M. W. iv. 4.
There's no such sport, as sport by sport o'erthrown;
To make theirs ours, and ours none but our own :

J. C. iv, 1. SPRING.

When daisies pied, and violets blue,

And lady-smocks all silver-white,
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue,
Do paint the meadows with delight,

The cuckoo then, on every tree,
Mocks married men, for thus sings he,
Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo, O word of fear,

Unpleasing to a married ear!
When shepherds pipe on oaten straws,

And merry larks are ploughmen's clocks,
When turtles tread, and rooks, and daws,
And maidens bleach their summer smocks.
The cuckoo then, &c.

L. L. v. 2.
When well-apparell’d April on the heel
Of limping winter treads.


O Proserpina,
For the flowers now, that, frighted, thou let'st fall
From Dis's waggon! daffodils


SPRING FLOWERS,—continued.

That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty ; violets, dim,
But sweeter than the lids of Juno's eyes,
Or Cytherea's breath ; pale primroses,
That die unmarried, ere they can behold
Bright Phæbus in his strength, a malady
Most incident to maids ; bold oxlips, and
The crown imperial ; lilies of all kinds,
The flower-de-luce being one.

And let us not be dainty of leave-taking,
But shift away : There's warrant in that theft,
Which steals itself, when there's no mercy left.

M. ï. 3.

If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an
improbable fiction.

T. N. ii. 4.
Saint Dennis bless this happy stratagem.

H. VI. Pt. 1. jii. 2.

0, it is excellent
To have a giant's strength; but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.

M. M. ii. 2.
