  • ACT I SCENE I. Athens. A hall in Timon's house. Enter Poet, Painter, Jeweller, Merchant, and others, at several doors Good day, sir. I am glad you're well. I have not seen you long: how goes the world? It wears, sir, as it grows. Ay, that's well known: But what particular rarity? what strange, Which manifold record not matches? See, Magic of bounty! all these spirits thy power Hath conjured to attend. I know the merchant. I know them both, th' other's a jeweller. O, 'tis a worthy lord. Nay, that's most fix'd. A most incomparable man, breathed, as it were, To an untirable and continuate goodness: He passes. Jeweller: I have a jewel here-- O, pray, let's see't: for the Lord Timon, sir? Jeweller: If he will touch the estimate: but, for that-- [Reciting to himself] 'When we for recompense have praised the vile, It stains the glory in that happy verse Which aptly sings the good.' 'Tis a good form. Looking at the jewel And rich: here is a water, look ye. You are rapt, sir, in some work, some dedication
