|Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,|
Is the immediate jewel of their souls;
Who steals my purse steals trash; tis something, nothing;
Twas mine, tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name,
Robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed.
Shakespeare.Othello, Act III. Scene 3.
|My name is Norval; on the Grampian hills|
My father feeds his flocks; a frugal swain,
Whose constant cares were to increase his store,
And keep his only son, myself, at home.
For I had heard of battles, and I longd
To follow to the field some warlike lord;
And Heavn soon granted what my sire denied.
Home.Douglas, Act II. Scene 1.
| Auf.What is thy name?|
Cor.A name unmusical to Volscians ears,
And harsh in sound to thine.
Shakespeare.Coriolanus, Act IV. Scene 5.
|A Junius Brutus, a Pomponius, or a Julius, or any other rusty name unwashed by baptism.|
Disraeli.On Ridiculous Titles. (Curiosities of Lit. Vol. 2, p. 485.)
|One crowded hour of glorious life|
Is worth an age without a name.
