Prosp'rous success gives blackest actions glory ;
Mason's Muleafjes. Success must follow those attempts that rise From a just cause, and crown the enterprize.
Nabbs's Hannibal and Scipio. All's but endeavour untill perfected By the success, and that is fortune's only ; Desert shares little in it.
Ibid. So they thrive, Whom fate in spight of storms hath kept alive.
John Ford's Lover's Melancholy. Things that in th' period prosp'rously succeed ; Though crofs'd before, are acted well indeed.
Glapthorne's Hollander. Things once well begun, Are half perform'd; the managing an act With close and hidden practice, 'mongst the wise And politick people, brings assur'd success : Broad open ways the heavy snail does take, Whilft untrod paths beit please the subtle snake.
Glapthorne's Albertus Wallenstein. Hope of reward, or one victorious field, Is no firm ground for any one to build. May ill success cloach bim with discontent, That ballanceth the cause by the event.
Lady Alimony. -Proud success admits no probe Of justice to correct or square the fate, That bears down all as illegitimate : For whatsoe'er it lists to overthrow, It either finds it, or else makes it so. Cleveland. • VOL. III..

Therefore the foul does ule the tasting
In veins, which through the tongue and pallate spread,
Distinguish ev'ry relish, sweet and sow'r. This is the body's nurse ; but since man's wit
Found th’art of cook’ry to delight his sense, More bodies are consum'd and kill'd with it, Than with the sword, famine, or pestilence.
Sir John Davies. -Would'It delight thy tafte ? Then Samian peacocks, and Ambracian kids, Hens of Numidia, pheasants, phenicopters, Tartefian lampreys, eels of Benacus, Cockles of Locrine, Eleusinian plaice Shall fill thy dish, and thousand changes more.
Nabbs's Microcosmus. Τ Α Χ Ε S. 1. Why tribute ? why should we pay tribute ? If Cæfar can hide the sun from us with a Blanket, or put the moon in his pocket, We will pay him tribute for light; else, fir, No more tribute. 2. You must know, Till the injurious Romans did extort This tribute from us, we were free. Cæsar's ambition, Which swelld so much, that it did almost stretch The sides o’th' world, against all colour, here Did put the yoke on us ; which to shake off, Becomes a warlike people, which we reckon Ourselves to be, to do.

Herrick, The law takes measure of us all for cloaths, Diets us all, and in the light of all, To keep us from all private leagues with wealth.
His most trusty guide,
Would from the right way seek to draw him wide,
Spenser's Fairy Queen. Tho' I look old, yet I am strong and lusty ; For in my youth I never did apply Hot and rebellious liquors in my blood ; Nor did I with unbalhful forehead woo The means of weakness and debility : Therefore my age is as a lusty winter, Frosty, but kindly
