When wit doth seek vice to embrace
The music tunes of voice or sound
As 'tis a sign of persons grave
Of a hard beginning
The pleasant and the gentle speech
The haughtiness of some but base
I have not only read
Nothing is sharper than low things
In weal and woe be patient
As they shadow itself applyeth
It doth belong more of good right
Who that to quassing is bent
If flattered be the wicked
If thou that hast a trusty friend
Thy secrets told
Buy new broom
Give not thy mind to heaviness - Shall I this woe sustain
Till time had taught me
As restless head doth always give.
