From As You Like It, ii. 7

William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
  TRUE 1 is it that we have seen better days,
And have with holy bell been knoll’d to church,
And sat at good men’s feasts and wiped our eyes
Of drops that sacred pity hath engender’d;
And therefore sit you down in gentleness        5
And take upon command what help we have,
That to your wanting may be minister’d.
