320 Yet am I thankfull: if my heart were great
321 ‘Twould burst at this: Captaine Ile be no more,
322 But I will eate, and drinke, and sleepe as soft
323 As Captaine shall. Simply the thing I am
324 Shall make me liue: who knowes himselfe a braggart
325 Let him feare this; for it will come to passe,
326 That euery braggart shall be found an Asse.
327 Rust sword, coole blushes, and Parrollesliue
328 Safest in shame: being fool’d, by fool’rie thriue;
329 There’s place and meanes for euery man aliue.
