For this damsel, I must keep her at the park; she is ailowed for the day-woman*. Fare you well.
Arm. I do betray myself with blushing-Maid.
[Exeunt Dull and Jaquenetta. Arm. Villain, thou shalt fast for thy offences, ere thou be pardoned.
Cost. Well, sir, I hope, when I do it, I shall do it on a full stomach.
Arm. Thou shalt be heavily punished.
Cost. I am more bound to you, than your fellows, for they are but lightly rewarded.
Arm. Take away this villain; shut him up.
Cost. Let me not be pent up, sir; I will fast, being loose.
Moth. No, sir; that were fast and loose: thou shalt to prison.
Cost. Well, if ever I do see the merry days of desolation that I have seen, some shall see
Moth. What shall some see?
Cost. Nay, nothing, master Moth, but what they look upon. It is not for prisoners to be too silent in their words; and, therefore, I will say nothing: I thank God, I have as little patience as another man; and, therefore, I can be quiet.
[Exeunt Moth and Costard.
Arm. I do affect the very ground, which is base, where her shoe, which is baser, guided by her foot, which is basest, doth tread, I shall be forsworn (which is a great argument of falsehood), if I love: and how can that be true love, which is falsely attempted ? Love is a familiar; love is a devil: there is no evil angel but love. Yet Samson was so tempted: and he had an excellent strength: yet was Solomon so seduced ; and he had a very good wit. Cupid's butt-sliaftt is too hard for Hercules' club, and therefore too much odds for a Spaniard's rapier. The first and second cause will not serve my turn; the passado he respects not, the duello he regards, not: his disgrace is to be called boy; but his glory is, to subdue men. Adieu, valour! rust, rapier! be still, drum! for your manager is in love; yea, he loveth. Assist me some extemporal god of rhyme, for, I am sure, I shall turn sonneteer. Devise wit; write pen: for I am for whole volumes in folio.

Oi all perfections that a man may owe,
1 Lord. Longaville is one. Prin.
Know you the man ? Mar. I know him, madam; at a marriage feast, Between lord Perigort and the beauteous heir Of Jaques Falconbridge solemnized,
In Normandy saw I this Longaville:
Prin. Some merry mocking lord, belike; is't so?
Ros. Another of these students at that time
Prin. God bless my ladies ! are they all in love;
Mar. Here comes Boyet.
Now, what admittance, lord;
(The ladies mask.
Enter King, Longaville, Dumain, Biron, and at
tendants. King. Fair princess, welcome to the court of Na
varre. Prin. Fair, I give you back again; and, welcome I have not yet: the roof of this court is too high to be yours; and welcome to the wild fields too base to be mine.
King. You shall be welcome, madam, to my court. Prin. I will be welcome then; conduct me thither. King. Hear me, dear lady; I have sworn an oath. Prin. Our lady help my lord! he'll be forsworn. King. Not for the world, fair madam, by my will. Prin. Why, will shall break it; will, and nothing
else. King. Your ladyship is ignorant what it is.
Prin. Were my lord so, his ignorance were wise, Where I now his knowledge must prove ignorance. I hear, your grace hath sworn-out house-keeping : 'Tis deadly sin to keep that oath, my lord, . And sid to break it: But pardon me, I am too sudden-bold; To teacb a teacher ill beseemeth me.
