Ros. Why theu, to-morrow I cannot serve your turn for Rosalind?
Ori. I can live no longer by thinking.
Ros. I will weary you no longer then with idle talking. Kuow of me then (for now I speak to some purpose), that I know you are a gentleman of good conceit: I speak not this, that you should bear a good opinion of my knowledge, insomuch, I say, I know you are; neither do I labour for a greater esteem than may in some little measure draw a be. lief from you, to do yourself good, and not to grace
Believe then, if you please, that I can do strange things: I have, since I was three years old, conversed with a magician, most profound in this art, and yet not dampable. If you do love Rosa lind so near the heart as your gesture cries it out, when your brother marries Aliena, sball you marry her: I know into what straits of fortune she is driven; and it is not impossible to me, if it appear not inconvenient to you, to set her before your eyes to-morrow, human as she is, and without any danger.
Orl. Speakest thou in sober meanings? Ros. By my life, I do; which I tender dearly, though I say I am a magician: Therefore, put you in your best array, bid* your friends; for if you will be married tomorrow, you shall; and to Rosalind, if you will.

Touch. God 'ild you, sir; I desire you of the like. I press in here, sir, amongst the rest of the country copulatives, to swear, and to forswear; according as marriage binds, and blood breaks :- A poor virgin, sir, ay ill-favoured thing, sir, but mice own; a poor humour of mine, sir, to take that that no man else will: Rich honesty dwells like a miser, sir, in a poor house; as your pearl, in your fouloyster.
Duke s. By my failli, lie is very swift and seutentious.
Touch. According to the fool's bolt, sir, and such dulcet diseases.
Jaq. But, for the seventh cause ; how did you find the quarrel on the seventh cause?
Touch. Upop a lie seren times removed ;~ Bear your body more seeming*, Audrey:-as thus, sir. I did dislike the cut of a certain courtier's beard; he sent me word, if I said his beard was not cut well, he was in the mind it was: This is called the retort courteous. If I sent hin word again, it was not well cut, he would send me word, he cut it to please himself: This is called the quip modest. If again, it was not well cut, he disabled my judge. ment: This is called the reply churlish. If again, it was not well cut, he would answer, I spake not true: This is called the reproof valiant. If again, it was not well cut, he would say, I lie: This is called the countercheck quarrelsome: and so to the lie circumstantial, and the lie direct.
Jaq. And how oft did you say, his beard was not well cat?
Touch. I durst go no further than the lie cir. cumstantial, nor he durst not give me the lie direct; and so we measured swords, and parted.
Jaq. Can you nominate in order now the degrees of the lie?
Touch. O sir, we quarrel in print, by the book ;

All these you may avoid, but the lie direct; and you may aroid that too, with an if. I knew when seven justices could not take up a quarrel; but when the parties were met themselves, one of them thought but of an if, as, if you said so, then I said so; and they shook hands, and swore brothers. Your if is the only peace-maker; much virtue in if.
