Marry I’ll teach you
Tender yourself more dearly

Do not believe his vows for they are brokers,/ Not of that dye which their investments show.
Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth.
By indirections find directions out
I hold my duty as I hold my soul,/ Both to my God and to my gracious King.
That he’s mad ’tis true, ’tis true ’tis pity,/ And pity ’tis ’tis true
since brevity is the soul of wit
‘Lord Hamlet is a prince out of thy star;/ This must not be.’
I’ll loose my daughter to him

I will use them according to their desert
I’ll be placed […] in the ear/ Of all their conference.’

And as you said, and wisely was it said
