Thou rascal, that art 5 'first from blows to run,
Hail, noble Martius !
[rogues, Mar. Thanks. What's the matter, you dissentious That, rubbing the poor itch of your opinion, Make your felves scabs ?
2 Cit. We have ever your good word.
Mar. He that will give good words to thee, will flatter Beneath abhorring. What would you have, ye curs, That like not peace, nor war? The one affrights you, The other makes you proud. He chat trusts to you, Where he should find you lions, finds you hares : Where foxes, geese you are : no furer, no, Than is the coal of fire upon the ice, Or hailstone in the sun. Your virtue is, To make him worthy, whose offence subdues him, And curse that justice did it. Who deserves greatness, Deserves your hate ; and your affections are A fick man's appetite, who desires most that Which would encrease his evil. He that depends Upon your favours, swims with fins of lead, And hews down oaks with rulhes. Hang yetrust ye! With every minute you do change a mind, And call him noble that was now your hate, Him vile that was your garland. What's the matter, That in the several places of the city You cry against the noble Senate, who (Under the Gods) keep you in awe, which else Would feed on one another ? What's their seeking ?

i Sen. Then, worthy Martius, Attend upon Cominius to these wars.
Com. It is your former promise.
Mar. Sir, it is;
Lar. No, Caius Martius;
Men. O true bred!
Our greatest friends attend us.
Lar. Lead you on ;
Com. Noble Lartius!
Mar. Nay, let them follow; The Volscians have much corn: take these rats thither To gnaw their garners. Worshipful mutineers, Your valour puts well forth; * 'I pray you, follow, [Exe.

Mark'd you his lip and eyes? Sic. Nay, but his taunts. Bru. Being mov’d, he will not spare to gird the Gods Sic. Be-mock the modest moon.
