|I am very glad of it: Ill plague him,|
Ill torture him; I am glad of it.
Shakespeare.Merchant of Venice, Act III. Scene 4. (Shylock to Tubal.)
|Gladness in every face expressd,|
Their eyes before their tongues confessd,
Men met each other with erected look,
The steps were higher that they took:
Friends to congratulate their friends made haste,
And long inveterate foes saluted as they passd.
Dryden.Threnodia Augustalis, IV. Line 4.
