Turn
 
Ay; you did wish that I would make her turn:
Sir, she can turn, and turn, and yet go on,
And turn again.
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act IV. Scene 1. (The Moor to Lodovico.)

      They never would hear,
      But turn a deaf ear,
As a matter they had no concern in.
        Swift.—Dingley and Brent.
  2
Turn gentle hermit of the dale,
  And guide my lonely way,
To where yon taper cheers the vale
  With hospitable ray.
        Goldsmith.—The Hermit.
  3
Be sure to turn the penny.
        Dryden’s Persius.—Sat. V.
