Marg. Moral ? no, by my troth, I have no moral meaning, I meant plain holy-thistle : you may think, perchance, that I think you are in love; nay, birlady, I am not such a fool to think what I lift; nor I liit not to think what I can ; nor, indeed, I cannot think, if I would think my heart out with thinking, that you are in love, or that you will be in love, or that you can be in love: yet Benedick was such another, and now is he become a man ; he swore, he would never marry; and yet now, in despight of his heart, he eats his meat-without grudging ; and how you may be converted, I know not; but, methinks, you look with your eyes as other women do.

Beat. What pace is this that thy tongue keeps ?
Marg. Not a false gallop.

Leon. What is it, my good friends ?

Dogb. Goodman Verges, Sir, speaks a little of the matter; an old man, Sir, and his wits are not so blunt, as, God help, I would defire they were; but, in faith, as honest as the skin between his brows.
