    • 1640, George Herbert, Witts Recreations, page 97:
      Although they ſemme us onely to affect,
      ’Tis their Content, not ours, they moſt reſpect :
      They for their own ends cunningly can feigne,
      And though they have’t by nature, yet they’ll ſtrain :
      Snre if on earth, by wiles gain’d might be bliſſe,
      Staight that I were a woman I would wiſh.
    • 1662, anonymous author, Rump, page 73:
      Yet ’cause the Rout will have’t perform’d by you,
      And long to see done what they dare not Doe.
    • 1698, L. Menton, William Coward, Matthew Prior, John Oldham, Money Maſters all Things, page 75:
      Then other whiles for outer Soles they raiſe,
      Such poor thin Hides by their unlawful ways,
      Which they well know, for ſuch uſe are not fit,
      Theſe Crafts they uſe more Money for to get,
      Than lawful ways can compaſs them, or bring :
      And thus we ſee Money’s the only thing
      At which all Trades and Myſteries do look,
      And are reſolv’d to have’t by Hook or Crook.
