Of which, though there he settles young,

A man will ne'er quite understand

6. Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,

Is the immediate jewel of their souls;

Who steals my purse, steals trash; 't is something nothing;

Robs me of that which not enriches him,

And makes me poor indeed. (W. Shakespeare)

The members rushed out, bleating, and into the bar. (D. Thomas)
