" Shakespeare's commentators might have added this passage to the long list of others they have brought forward (see note on "Othello," act i. sc. 3), to show that intention and attention, and intentive and attentive, were once, synonymous.
In the "Four 'Prentices of London," act i. sc. 1, the old Earl of Boulogne says "Vain pleasures I abhor, all things defy, That teach not to despair, or how to die.

George Wilkins, too, the obscure author of "The Miseries of Enforced Marriage," uses the term with as full an understanding, though not with so feeling an expression or so scandalous an illustration of it, in the following passage from the fifth act of that play, which was produced about 1605 or 1606:
" 1 Henry IV.Act ii, Sc. 4.
But so Fletcher uses the same phrase, and as correctly, when he makes Perez say to Estefania, in "Rule a Wife and Have a Wife," "How like a sheep-biting rogue, taken i' the manner, And ready for the halter, dost thou look now!"Act v. Sc.
Sc. 5. "No cock of mine; you crow too like a craven.
Who can have a doubt about this matter, when he appreciates rightly the following passage in "Hamlet," (Act v. Sc. 2,) and is penetrated with the wisdom of two wise commentators upon it? 'Our indiscretion sometimes serves us well, When our deep plots do pall; and that should teach us There's a divinity that shapes our ends, Rough-hew them how we will.' Dr. Farmer informs me that these words are merely technical.
Thou friend of an ill fashion!" Act v. Sc. 4. Cleopatra, too, who, we may be sure from her conduct, was addicted to very "low necks," after Antony's death becomes serious, and declares her intention to have something "after the high Roman fashion."
A memory, too, of the profuse adornment with which he had been called upon to decorate some very tender youth's or miss's fashionable suit intrudes itself even in his most thoughtful tragedy: "The canker galls the infants of the Spring Too oft before their buttons be disclos'd." Hamlet, Act i. Sc.
" Act i. Sc.
Sc. 7,) "Men shall hold of me in capite; and we charge and command that wives be as free as heart can wish or tongue can tell."
In "Love's Labor's Lost," almost without a doubt the first comedy that Shakespeare wrote, on Boyet's offering to kiss Maria, (Act ii. Sc. 1,) she declines the salute, and says, "My lips are no common, though several they be."
Two are for the introduction of stage-directions in Act I., Sc.
In "Love's Labor's Lost," Act IV., Sc. 3, when Birone conceals himself from the King, the stage-direction in the folio of 1632, as well as in that of 1623, is "He stands aside."
So again in "Much Ado about Nothing," Act II., Sc. 3, there is a MS. stage-direction to the effect that Benedick, when he hides "in the arbour," "Retires behind the trees."
In Act II., Sc. 1, the passage from and including Reynaldo's speech, "As gaming, my Lord," to his other speech, "Ay, my Lord, I would know that," is crossed out.
And to the passages noticed there, add this: In King Henry VI., Part II., Act IV., Sc. 5, is this couplet: "Fight for your King, your country, and your lives.
The upper one represents the stage-direction in ink, with its accompanying pencil-memorandum, for an aside speech in "King John," Act II., Sc. 1,doubtless that of Faulconbridge,"O prudent discipline," etc.
The lower memorandum is a pencilled word, "begging" opposite the line in "Hamlet," Act III., Sc. 2, "And crook the pregnant hinges of the knee," to which there is no corresponding word in ink.
The indications of the pencilled words in modern cursive writing are strengthened by the short-hand stage-direction in "Coriolanus," Act V., Sc. 2, "Struggles or instead noise," in the characters of Palmer's system, which was promulgated in 1774.
sc. 1), and in Antony and Cleopatra this passage is elucidated thus Thy daemon, that's thy spirit which keeps thee, is Noble, courageous, high, unmatchable, Where Cæsar's is not; but near him thy angel Becomes a fear, as being overpowered. Act ii.
