Jaq. More, more, I pr’ythee, more. .Ami. It will make you melancholy, monsieur Jaques. Jaq. I thank it. More, I pr’ythee, more. I can suck melancholy out of a song, as a weazel sucks eggs: More, I pr’ythee, more. -Ami. My voice is ragged; I know, I cannot please you. Jaq. I do not desire you to please me, I do desire you to sing: Come, more; another stanza; Call youthem stanzas? .Ami. What you will, monsieur Jaques. Jaq. Nay, I care not for their names ; they owe me nothing : Will you sing 2 .Ami. More at your request, than to please myself. Jaq. Well then, if ever I thank any man, I'll thank you : but that they call compliment, is like the encounter of two-dog-apes; and when a man thanks me heartily, methinks, I have given him a penny, and he renders me the beggarly thanks. Come, sing ; and you that will not, hold your tongues. JAmi. Well, I'll end the song.—Sirs, cover the while ; the duke will drink under this tree :-he hath been all this day to look you. Jaq. And I have been all this day to avoid him. He is too dispátable for my company : I think of as many matters as he ; but I give heaven thanks, and make no boast of them. Come, warble, come.

Jaq. I'll give you a verse to this note, that I made yesterday in despight of my invention.
.Ami. And I’ll sing it.
Jaq. Thus it goes:
If it do come to fiass,
.Adam. Dear master, I can go no farther: O, I die for food Here lie I down, and measure out my grave. Farewell, kind master.
Orla. Why, how now, Adam no greater heart in thee 2 Live a little ; comfort a little ; cheer thyself a little : If this uncouth forest yield any thing savage, I will either be food for it, or bring it for food to thee. Thy conceit is nearer death than thy powers. For my sake, be comfortable ; hold death a while at the arm's end : I will here be with thee presently; and if I bring thee not something to eat, I’ll give thee leave to die: but if thou diest before I come, thou art a mocker of my labour. Well said : thou look'st cheerily : and I’ll be with thee quickly.—Yet thou liest in the bleak air: Come, I will bear thee to some shelter ; and thou shalt not die for lack of a dinner, if there live any thing in this desert. Cheerly, good Adam : [Exeunt.
The same. A table set out. Enter Duke senior, AMIENs, Lords, and others.
Duke S. I think he be transform'd into a beast ; For I can no where find him like a man.
1 Lord. My lord, he is but even now gone hence ; Here was he merry, hearing of a song.

DukeS. If he, compact of jars, grow musical, We shall have shortly discord in the spheres:– Go, seek him ; tell him, I would speak with him. Enter JAQUE's. 1 Lord. He saves my labour by his own approach. Duke S. Why, how now, monsieur ! what a life is this, That your poor friends must woo your company 2 What! you look merrily. Jaq. A fool, a fool —I met a fool i' the forest, A motley fool ;—a miserable world !— As I do live by food, I met a fool ; Who laid him down and bask’d him in the sun, And rail'd on lady Fortune in good terms, In good set terms, and yet a motley fool. Good-morrow, fool, quoth I: Mo, sir, quoth he, Call me not fool, till heaven hath sent me fortune : And then he drew a dial from his poke ; And looking on it with lack-lustre eye, Says, very wisely, It is ten o’clock : Thus may we see, quoth he, how the world wag's : 'Tis but an hour ago, since it was nine ; " ...And after an hour more, 'tovill be eleven ; .1nd so, from hour to hour, we rifle and rifle, ...And then, from hour to hour, we rot, and rot, .And thereby hangs a tale. When I did hear The motley fool thus moral on the time, My lungs began to crow like chanticleer, That fools should be so deep-contemplative; And I did laugh, sans intermission, An hour by his dial,—O noble fool : A worthy fool Motley’s the only wear. Duke S. What fool is this 2 Jaq. O worthy fool!—One that hath been a courtier ; And says, if ladies be but young, and fair, They have the gift to know it : and in his brain,— Which is as dry as the remainder bisket After a voyage, he hath strange places cramm’d . With observation, the which he vents In mangled forms:—O, that I were a fool : I am ambitious for a motley coat. Duke S. Thou shalt have one. Jay. It is my only suit ; Provided, that you weed your better judgments Of all opinion that grows rank in them,

Enter ORLANDo, with his sword drawn. Orla. Forbear, and eat no more. Jaq. Why, I have eat none yet. Orla. Nor shalt not, till necessity be serv’d. Jaq. Of what kind should this cock come of 2 Duke S. Art thou thus bolden'd, man, by thy distress; Or else a rude despiser of good manners, That in civility thou seem'st so empty 2 Orla. You touch'd my vein at first ; the thorny point Of bare distress hath ta'en from me the show Of smooth civility: yet am I inland bred, i. And know some nurture:* But forbear, I say: He dies, that touches any of this fruit, Till I and my affairs are answered. Jaq. An you will not be answered with reason, I must die. Duke S. What would you have 2 Your gentleness shall force, More than your force move us to gentleness. Orla. I almost die for food, and let me have it. Duke S. Sit down and feed, and welcome to our table. Orla. Speak you so gently 2 Pardon me, I pray you : I thought, that all things had been savage here ; And therefore put I on the countenance Of stern commandment: But whate'er you are, That in this desart inaccessible, Under the shade of melancholy boughs, Lose and neglect the creeping hours of time ; If ever you have look’d on better days; If ever been where bells have knoll’d to church ; If ever sat at any good man’s feast ; If ever from your eye-lids wip’d a tear, And know what 'tis to pity, and be pitied ; Let gentleness my strong enforcement be : In the which hope, I blush, and hide my sword. Duke S. True is it that we have seen better days ; And have with holy bell been knoll'd to church ; And sat at good men’s feasts; and wip'd our eyes Of drops that sacred pity hath engender'd :
