    Mayhap thou canst not ripen without frost!

  5. Truth is the trial of itself
       And needs no other touch,
    And purer than the purest gold,

  6. Pray thee, take care, that tak'st my book in hand,
    To read it well: that is, to understand.
       Ben Jonson, To the Reader

  7. Drink to me only with thine eyes,
       And I will pledge with mine;
    Or leave a kiss within the cup,
       And I'll not ask for wine.
