Diseased nature oftentimes breaks forth
  In strange eruptions; oft the teeming earth
    Is with a kind of colic pinched and vexed

        Within the womb, which, for enlargement striving,
          Shakes the old beldame earth and topples down
            Steeples and mossgrown towers.

         (Hotspur at III, i) [Business]

Now I perceive the devil understands Welsh.
  And 'tis no marvel he is so humorous.
    By'r Lady, he is a good musician.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Hotspur at III, i) [Humor]

O, he's as tedious
  As a tir'd horse, a railing wife;
    Worse than a smoky house; I had rather live
      With cheese and garlic in a windmill far
        Than feed on cates, and have him talk to me
          In any summer house in Christendom.

         (Hotspur at III, i) [Bores]

O, while you live, tell truth, and shame the devil.
