The Merchant of Venice
   begins   
"In Sooth, I Know Not Why I Am So Sad"
In sooth, I know not why I am so sad: It wearies me; you say it wearies you; But how I caught it, found it, or came by it, What stuff 'tis made of, whereof it is born, I am to learn; And such a want-wit sadness makes of me, That I have much ado to know myself.
The Merchant of Venice
   ends   
"Well, While I Live I'll Fear No Other Thing, So Sore As Keeping Safe Nerissa's Ring."
Let it be so: the first inter'gatory That my Nerissa shall be sworn on is, Whether till the next night she had rather stay, Or go to bed now, being two hours to day: But were the day come, I should wish it dark, That I were couching with the doctor's clerk. Well, while I live I'll fear no other thing So sore as keeping safe Nerissa's ring.
Jocelyn Pook
