The Merry Wives of Windsor
You are afraid, if you see the bear loose,
are you not?
Ay, indeed, sir.
That's meat and drink to me, now. I have seen Sack-
erson loose twenty times, and have taken him by the chain;
but, I warrant you, the women have so cried and shrieked at it,
that it passed: but women, indeed, cannot abide 'em; they
are very ill-favored rough things. (1.1.246-251)
Now, the report goes she has all the rule of her husband's purse: he hath a legion of angels. (1.3.45-46)
Nay, I will consent to act any villainy against him, that may not sully the chariness of our honesty. (2.1.86-87)
