In underprizing it, so far this shadow
Doth limp behind the substance.

PortiaYou see me, lord Bassanio, where I stand,
Such as I am. Though for myself alone,
I would not be ambitious in my wish,
To wish myself much better; yet, for you
I would be trebled twenty times myself;
A thousand times more fair, ten thousand times more

rich;
That only to stand high on your account,
I might in virtues, beauties, livings, friends,
Exceed account : but the full sum of me
Is sum of something; which, to term in gross,
Is an unlessoned girl, unschooled, unpractised :
Happy in this, she is not yet too old
But she may learn; and, happier than this,
She is not bred so dull but she can learn ;
Happiest of all, is, that her gentle spirit
Commits itself to yours to be directed,
As from her lord, her governor, her king.

Shakspeare : "The Merchant of Venice."

A FAREWELL.

M

Y fairest child, I have no song to give you.;

Nolark could pipe to skies so dull and grey;
Yet, ere we part, one lesson I can leave you

For every day.
Be good, sweet maid, and let who will be clever ;

Do noble things, not dream them all day long ;
And so make life, death, and that vast For-ever
One grand, sweet song.

Kingsley.
