    So may the outward shows be least themselves;
    The world is still deceived with ornament.
    In law, what plea so tainted and corrupt
    But being seasoned with a gracious voice,
    Obscures the show of evil? In religion,
    What damned error but some sober brow
    Will bless it and approve it with a text,
    Hiding the grossness with fair ornament?

But ask not thou if happiness be there,
If the loud laugh disguise convulsive throe,
Or if read more

But ask not thou if happiness be there,
If the loud laugh disguise convulsive throe,
Or if the brow the heart's true livery wear.
