  • As in revenge of thy ingratitude, I throw thy name against the bruising stones, Trampling contemptuously on thy disdain.
  • And I will help thee to prefer her too: She shall be dignified with this high honour,— To bear my lady’s train, lest the base earth Should from her vesture chance to steal a kiss, And, of so great a favour growing proud, Disdain to root the summer-swelling flower And make rough winter everlastingly.
