|I do observe you now of late:|
I have not from your eyes that gentleness,
And show of love, as I was wont to have:
You bear too stubborn and too strange a hand
Over your friend that loves you.
Shakespeare.Julius Cæsar, Act I. Scene 2. (Cassius to Brutus.)
|The truth you speak doth lack some gentleness,|
And time to speak it in: you rub the sore
When you should bring the plaster.
Shakespeare.The Tempest, Act II. Scene 1. (Gonzalo to Sebastian.)
|The glass of fashion and the mould of form,|
The observd of all observers!
Shakespeare.Hamlet, Act III. Scene 1. (Ophelia, after her interview with him.)
