      Of me more must be heard of, say I taught thee;
        Say, Wolsey, that once trod the ways of glory
          And sounded all the depths and shoals of honor,
            Found thee a way (out of his wrack) to rise in,
              A sure and safe one, though thy master missed it.

  In music, instruments, and poetry,
    Schoolmasters will I keep within my house,
      Fit to instruct her youth. If you, Hortensio,

          Prefer them hither, for to cunning men
            I will be very kind, and liberal
              To mine own children in good bringing-up.

        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Baptista at I, i)
