  • It ascends me into the brain; dries me there all the foolish and dull and crudy vapours which environ it; makes it apprehensive, quick, forgetive, full of nimble fiery and delectable shapes; which, delivered o’er to the voice, the tongue, which is the birth, becomes excellent wit.
  • "Northumberland, thou ladder by the which My cousin Bolingbroke ascends my throne;" Though then, God knows, I had no such intent, But that necessity so bow’d the state That I and greatness were compell’d to kiss: "The time shall come," thus did he follow it, "The time will come, that foul sin, gathering head, Shall break into corruption:" so went on, Foretelling this same time’s condition And the division of our amity.
