bereft: Seek not my name : A plague consume you wicked caitiffs left! Here lie I, Timon; who, alive, all living men did hate : Pass by, and curse thy fill; but pass, and stay not here thy gait. These well express in thee thy latter spirits : Though thou abhorr'dst in us our human griefs, Scorn'dst our brain's flow, I and those our droplets which From niggard nature fall, yet rich conceit Taught thee to make vast Neptune weep for aye On thy low grave, on faults forgiven Dead Is noble Timon; of whose memory Hereafter more. --Bring me into your city And I will use the olive with my sword : Make war breed peace; make peace stint $ war; make each Prescribe to other, as each other's leech. || Let our drums strike.

2 Gent. But what's the matter ?
1 Gent. His daughter, and the heir of his kingdom, whom
2 Gent. None but the king ?
1 Gent. He, that hath lost her, too: so is the queen, That most desired the match: But not a courtier,
* This difficult passage should, I think, be construed thus : our counte. nances, regulated by the blood, do not obey natural impulses, but, as courtiers, imitate that of the king.
Although they wear their faces to the bent
2 Gent. And why so ?
1 Gent. He that hath miss'd the princess, is a thing Too bad for bad report: and he that hath her (I mean, that married her,-alack, good man :And therefore banish’d) is a creature such As, to seek through the regions of the earth For one his like, there would be something failing In him that should compare.

1 Gent. I do extend him, Sir, within himself; Crush him together, rather than unfold His measure duly. t
2 Gent. What's his name and birth ?
1 Gent. I cannot delve him to the root: His father Was call’d Sicilius, who did join his honour, Against the Romans, with Cassibelan; But had his titles by Tenantius, I whom He served with glory and admired success : So gain'd the sur-addition, Leonatus : And had, besides this gentleman in question, Two other sons, who, in the wars o'the time, Died with their swords in hand; for which their father (Then old and fond of issue) took such sorrow, That he quit being; and this gentle lady, Big of this gentleman, our theme, deceased As he was born. The king, he takes the babe To his protection; calls him Posthumus; Breeds him, and makes him of his bed-chamber: Puts him to all the learnings that his time Could make him the receiver of; which he took, As we do air, fast as 'twas minister'd; and
In his spring became a harvest: Lived in court
A sample to the youngest; to the more mature,
