    And the first motion, all the interim is

    Are then in council; and the state of man,
    Like to a little kingdom, suffers then
    The nature of an insurrection.”

    Being purg’d, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes;

    What is it else? A madness most discreet,
    A choking gall, and a preserving sweet.”
