717
    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 every thing.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 1.
718
    The big round tears
Coursed one another down his innocent nose
In piteous chase.

As worldlings do, giving thy sum of more
To that which had too much.”

Yea, providently caters for the sparrow,
Be comfort to my age!

    For in my youth I never did apply
Hot and rebellious liquors in my blood.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 3.
723
    Therefore my age is as a lusty winter,
Frosty, but kindly.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 3.
724
    O, good old man, how well in thee appears
The constant service of the antique world,
When service sweat for duty, not for meed!
Thou art not for the fashion of these times,
Where none will sweat but for promotion.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 3.
725
    Ay, now am I in Arden: the more fool I. When I was at home I was in a better place; but travellers must be content.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 4.
726
    I shall ne’er be ware of mine own wit till I break my shins against it.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 4.
727
    Under the greenwood tree
Who loves to lie with me.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 5.
728
    I met a fool i’ the forest,
A motley fool.
          As You Like It. Act ii. Sc. 7.
