Definition
wanting to see others suffer; or threatening evil
  • Virtue is of so little regard in these costermonger times that true valour is turned bear-herd; pregnancy is made a tapster, and hath his quick wit wasted in giving reckonings: all the other gifts appertinent to man, as the malice of this age shapes them, are not worth a gooseberry.
    1.2 — Act 1 Scene 2 — London. A street (69% in)
