I am to learn

ANTHONI 0:

N footh, I know not why I am so fad :
It wearies me; you fay, it wearies you;
But how I caught it, found it, or came
by it,

What ftuff 'tis made of, whereof it is
born,

And fuch a want-wit fadness makes of me,
That I have much ado to know my felf.
Sal. Your mind is toffing on the ocean;
There, where your Argofies with portly Sail,
Like figniors and rich burghers on the flood,
Or as it were the pageants of the fea,
Do over-peer the petty traffickers,
That curtfie to them, do them reverence,
As they fly by them with their woven wings.

Sola.
