Poor Tom, that eats the swimming frog, the toad, the todpole, the wall-newt and the water; that in the fury of his heart, when the foul fiend rages, eats cow-dung for sallets, swallows the old rat and the ditch-dog, drinks the green mantle of the standing pool; who is whipped from tithing to tithing, and stock-punished and imprisoned; who hath had three suits to his back, six shirts to his body,
Horse to ride, and weapon to wear,
But mice and rats, and such small deer,
Have been Tom's food for seven long year.

And show the heavens more just.

We scarcely think our miseries our foes.

When grief hath mates, and bearing fellowship.

That bear'st a cheek for blows, a head for wrongs;
Who hast not in thy brows an eye discerning
Thine honor from thy suffering; [that not know'st
Fools do those villains pity who are punished
Ere they have done their mischief. Where's thy drum?
France spreads his banners in our noiseless land,
With plumed helm thy state begins to threat,
Whilst thou, a moral fool, sits still and cries
'Alack, why does he so?']

The stars above us govern our conditions;
Else one self mate and make could not beget

Patience and sorrow strove
Who should express her goodliest. You have seen
Sunshine and rain at once--her smiles and tears
Were like, a better way: those happy smilets
That played on her ripe lip seemed not to know
What guests were in her eyes, which parted thence
As pearls from diamonds dropped.
- King Lear (Gentleman at IV, iii)
[Expression : Eyes]
There she shook
The holy water from her heavenly eyes,
And clamor moistened; then away she started
To deal with grief alone.
- King Lear (Gentleman at IV, iii) [Tears]
