        For high feats done to th' crown, neither allied
          To eminent assistants, but spiderlike
            Out of his self-drawing web, 'a gives us note,
              The force of his own merit makes his way,
                A gift that heaven gives for him, which buys
                  A place next to the king.

Things done well
  And with a care exempt themselves from fear;
