Excerpt: The Life of Timon of Athens; Actus Primus -- Scoena Prima -- Enter Poet, Painter, Jeweller, Merchant, and Mercer, at severall doores. Poet. Good day Sir. Pain. I am glad y?are well. Poet. I have not seene you long, how goes the World? Pain. It weares sir, as it growes. Poet. I that?s well knowne: But what particular Rarity? What strange, Which manifold record not matches: see Magicke of Bounty, all these spirits thy power Hath conjur?d to attend. I know the Merchant. Pain. I know them both: th? others a Jeweller. Mer. O ?tis a worthy Lord. Jew. Nay that?s most fixt. Mer. A most incomparable man, breath?d as it were, To an untyreable and continuate goodnesse: He passes. Jew. I have a Jewell heere. Mer. O pray let?s see?t. For the Lord Timon, sir? Jewel. If he will touch the estimate. But for that--Poet. When we for recompence have prais?d the vild, It staines the glory in that happy Verse, Which aptly sings the good. Mer. ?Tis a good forme. Jewel. And rich: heere is a Water looke ye. Pain. You are rapt sir, in some worke, some Dedication to the great Lord. Poet. A thing slipt idlely from me. Our Poesie is as a Gowne, which uses From whence ?tis nourisht: the fire i?th? Flint Shewes not, till it be strooke: our gentle flame Provokes it selfe, and like the currant flyes Each bound it chases. What have you there? Pain. A Picture sir: when comes your Booke forth? Poet. Upon the heeles of my presentment sir. Let?s see your peece.
