Letting 'I dare not' wait upon 'I would', like the poor cat i' the adage
Prithee, peace. I dare do all that may become a man; Who dares do more is none.
What beast was't then that made you break this enterprise to me? When you durst do it, then you were a man -
And to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man. Nor time nor place, Did then adhere, and yet you would make both;
They have made themselves, and that their firness now does unmake you.
I have given suck, and know how tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me - I would, while it was smiling in my face have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums and dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this.
