Page 248 - How that might change his nature, there's the question. It is the bright day that brings forth the adder; And that craves wary walking. Crown him? — That; — And then, I grant, we put a sting in him, That at his will he may do danger with.
Page 150 - Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits, and Are melted into air, into thin air : And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind.
