First, then, a woman will, or won't,--depend on't;
  If she will do't, she will; and there's an end on't.
    But, if she won't, since safe and sound your trust is,
      Fear is affront: and jealousy injustice.
      - Epilogue to Zara [Women]

The man who pauses on the paths of treason,
  Halts on a quicksand, the first step engulfs him.
      - Henry V (act I, sc. 1) [Treason]

When Christ at Cana's feast by pow'r divine,
  Inspir'd cold water, with the warmth of wine,
    See! cry'd they while, in red'ning tide, it gush'd,
      The bashful stream hath seen its God and blush'd.
      - Translation of Crashaw's Latin lines--Works
         (vol. III, o. 241), (ed. 1754) [Miracles]

Tender handed stroke a nettle,
  And it stings you for your pains;
    Grasp it like a man of mettle,
      And it soft as silk remains.
      - Verses Written on a Window [Courage]

Letters, from absent friends, extinguish fear,
  Unite division, and draw distance near;
    Their magic force each silent wish conveys,
      And wafts embodied though, a thousand ways:
        Could souls to bodies write, death's pow'r were mean,
          For minds could then meet minds with heav'n between.
      - Verses Written on a Window in a Journey to Scotland
        [Post]

Tender-handed stroke a nettle,
  And it stings you for your pains;
    Grasp it like a man of mettle,
      And it soft as silk remains.
        'Tis the same with common natures,
          Use 'em kindly, they rebel;
            But, be rough as nutmeg-graters,
              And the rogues obey you well.
      - Verses written on a Window in a Journey to Scotland
        [Obedience : Proverbs]
