ΚΑΚΟΝ ΤΟ ΚΑΛΟΝ ΗΝ ΤΙ ΜΗ ΚΑΙΡΟΥ ΤΥΧΗι.

Γλαύκε, γραφάς τυφλοίσι δίδως και κάστανα νωδούς,

βρώματα τους μεστούς, τους μεθύουσι ποτών χρήματα τους πτωχοίσι θρoείς ρώμην τε νοσούσι,

συμποσίοις σκυθρός, προς δε πυρήσι γελών ταύτα μεν έκ σευ άκαιρα πάρεσθ', εν δ' ούποτ' άκαιρον,

πλήγμα το σ' έξοίσον καίριον εις 'Αδεω.

SHAKSPEARE.

KING HENRY VI. Part III. Act I, Scene 4.

SHE-WOLF of France, but worse than wolves of France, Whose tongue more poisons than the adder's tooth !

How ill-beseeming is it in thy sex,

To triumph, like an Amazonian trull,

Upon their woes, whom fortune captivates !
But that thy face is, vizor-like, unchanging,
Made impudent with use of evil deeds,
I would assay, proud queen, to make thee blush :
To tell thee whence thou camest, of whom derived,
Were shame enough to shame thee, wert thou not shameless.
Thy father bears the type of king of Naples,
Of both the Sicils, and Jerusalem;

Yet not so wealthy as an English yeoman.
Hath that poor monarch taught thee to insult ?
It needs not, nor it boots thee not, proud queen ;
