Serrant.--Sach a house broke!
So noble a master fallen! All gone! and not
One friend, to take his fortune by the arm,
And go along with him!

Flavius.---Let's yet be fellows; let's shake our heads, and say,
As 'twere a kneli'unto our master's fortunes,
We have seen better days.-
To have his pomp, and all that state compounds,
But only painted, like bis varnish'd friends!
Poor honest lord, brought low by bis own heart;
Undone by goodness !--Alas, kind lord!
He's tlung, in rage from this ungrateful seat
Of monstrous friends: nor has be with him to
Supply his life, or that which can command it.-
I'll follow, and inquire him out:
I'll serve his mind with my best skill;
Whilst I have gold,

I'll be his sleward still.-Timon of Athens.
