    Of England’s Council and her Treasury,
    Who lived in both, unstain’d with gold or fee,
    And left them both, more in himself content.

    Broke him, as that dishonest victory
    At Chaeronea, fatal to liberty,
    Kill’d with report that old man eloquent;—

    What’s brave, what’s noble,
    Let’s do’t after the high Roman fashion,
    And make death proud to take us.
