A trim reckoning! Who hath it? he that died o' Wednesday. Doth he feel it? no. Doth he hear it? no. 'Tis insensible, then. Yea, to the dead. But will it not live with the living? no.

  An arm as big as thine? A heart as big?
    Thy words, I grant, are bigger, for I wear not
      My dagger in my mouth.
      - [Blustering]

What bath this day deserv'd? what hath it done,
  That it in golden letters should be set
    Among the high tides in the calendar?
