Ancus Marcius quotes - 10 of
He's a very dog to the commonalty.
He is himself alone,
To answer all the city.
Ingratitude is monstrous, and for the multitude to be
ingrateful were to make a monster of the multitude.
He that trusts to you,
Where he should find you lions, finds you hares; Where foxes, geese.
He is a lion
That I am proud to hunt.
They said they were an-hungry; sighed forth proverbs--
That hunger broke stone walls, that dogs must eat, ...
O! let me clip ye
In arms as sound as when I wooed, in heart ...
What's the matter, you dissentious rogues,
That rubbing the poor itch of your opinion Make yourselves scabs?
With every minute you do change a mind,
And call him noble that was now your hate.
He that depends
Upon your favors swims with fins of lead, And hews down oaks with rushes.
