DEFIANCE
[ Also see Rebellion ]

I do defy him, and I spit at him;
  Call him--a slanderous coward, and a vil-lain:
    Which to maintain, I would allow him odds;
      And meet him, were I ty'd to run a-foot,
        Even to the frozen ridges of the Alps.
      - William Shakespeare

If thou but frown on me, or stir thy foot,
  Or teach thy hasty spleen to do me shame,
    I'll strike thee dead. Put up thy sword betime,
      Or I'll so maul you and your toasting-iron,
        That you shall think the devil has come from hell.
      - William Shakespeare

If thou deny'st it, twenty times thou liest;
  And I will turn thy falsehood to thy heart,
    Where it was forged, with my rapier's point.
      - William Shakespeare

Then, Bolingbroke, as low as to thy heart,
  Through the false passage of thy throat, thou liest.
      - William Shakespeare

Who sets me else? by heaven I'll throw at all;
  I have a thousand spirits in one breast,
    To answer twenty thousand such as you.
      - William Shakespeare

Why, I will fight with him upon this theme
  Until my eyelids will no longer wag.
      - William Shakespeare

Though all around is dark and cheerless,
  And on high my star looks pale,
    My heart is steadfast still and fearless,
      Still my lips disdain to wail.
        My spirit still stands up undaunted,
          Still I on myself rely;
            No craven thought my brain e'er haunted,
              Fate and Fortune I defy!
      - Unknown, Fraser's Magazine
