Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you,

trippingly on the tongue: but if you mouth it, as many of

your players do, I had as lief the town crier spoke my

lines. Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand,

thus, but use all gently: for in the very torrent, tempest,

and, as I may say, whirlwind of passion, you must

acquire and beget a temperance that may give it

smoothness. O, it offends me to the soul, to hear a

robustious periwig-pated fellow tear a passion to

tatters, to very rags, to split the cars of the groundlings,

who, for the most part, are capable of nothing but

inexplicable dumb shows and noise: I would have such a

fellow whipped for o'erdoing Termagant; it out-herods

Herod: pray you avoid it.

Qualis Artifex Pereo!
