He threatens many that hath injured one.
        Ben Jonson.—Sejanus, Act II. Scene 4.
Be stirring as the time, be fire with fire;
Threaten the threat’ner, and outface the brow
Of bragging horror.
        Shakespeare.—King John, Act V. Scene 1. (The Bastard to the King.)
There is no terror, Cassius, in your threats;
For I am arm’d so strong in honesty,
That they pass by me as the idle winds,
Which I respect not.
        Shakespeare.—Julius Cæsar, Act IV. Scene 5. (Brutus to Cassius.)
