Of all the men alive
I never yet beheld that special face
Which I could fancy more than any other.
He took the bride about the neck
And kissed her lips with such a clamorous smack
Hortensio. What happy gale
Blows you to Padua here from old Verona?
Hortensio. Madam, my instrument's in tune.
Bianca. Let's hear. O fie, the treble jars.
Crowns in my purse I have, and goods at home,
And so am come abroad to see the world.
Our purses shall be proud, our garments poor,
For 'tis the mind that makes the body rich,
What, is the jay more precious than the lark
Because his feathers are more beautiful?
Where two raging fires meet together,
They do consume the thing that feeds their fury.
The poorest service is repaid with thanks.
O slanderous world! Kate like the hazel twig
Is straight and slender, and as brown in hue
