“Why, to keep one’s eyes of either side ‘s nose, that what a
man can not smell out, he may spy out.”

“Canst tell how an oyster makes his shell?”

“No.”

“Nor I either; but I can tell why a snail has a house.”

“Why?”

“Why, to put his head in; not to give it away to his
daughters and leave his horns without a case.”

“—-Be my horses ready?”

“Thy asses are gone about ’em. The reason why the seven
stars are no more than seven is a pretty reason.”

“Because they are not eight?”

“Yes, indeed: thou would’st make a good fool.”

-Leo Tolstoy
