1. State briefly the argument of the First Book of Paradise
2. Interpret the meaning of the following:

He who reigns within himself, and rules
Passions, desires, and fears, is more a king ;

Subject himself to anarchy within,

Or lawless passions in him which he serves.

To glean the broken ears after the man
That the main harvest reaps : loose now and then

A scatter'd smile, and that I'll live upon. (c.) Sir, I am a true labourer; I earn that I eat, get that I wear; owe no man hate, envy no man's happiness; glad of other men's good, content with my harm; and the greatest of my pride is, to see my ewes graze, and my lambs suck.





Thou art not for the fashion of these times,
Where none will sweat but for promotion;
And having that, do choke their service up
Even with the having : it is not so with thee.

We are such stuff
As dreams are made of, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
