O! She doth teach the torches to burn bright.
It seems she hangs apon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethop's ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.

To sport would be as tedious as to work."

Jason (gireesh42) "[Thou are] a knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking knave; a glass-gazing, superservicable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch: one whom I will beat into clamorous whining, if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition. [sic] Draw, you rogue: for, though it be night, I'll make a sop o' the moonshine of you; draw, you cullionly barber-monger, draw."

Héctor And bring him out that is but woman's son
Can trace me in the tedious ways of art,
And hold me pace in deep experiments.

Shakespeare, Enrique IV

With every several pleasures in the world,
And where thou art not, desolation
