As he was valiant, I honor him; but, as he was ambitious, I slew him
Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come
WHAT PRIVATE GRIEFS THEY HAVE, ALAS! I KNOW NOT.
SWEET ARE THE USES OF ADVERSITY,
WHICH, LIKE THE TOAD, UGLY AND VENOMOUS,
WEARS YET A PRECIOUS JEWEL IN HIS HEAD;
AND THIS OUR LIFE EXEMPT FROM PUBLIC HAUNT,
FINDS TONGUES IN TREES, BOOKS IN THE RUNNING BROOKS,
SERMONS IN STONES, AND GOOD IN EVERYTHING.
