 Ham.  I am but mad NORTH-NORTH-WEST: when the wind is southerly I know
a hawk from a HANDSAW. (II,2,272)

Ham  ,,,,Nor do not SAW the air too much with your HAND, thus; but use
all gently: for in the very torrent, tempest, and-as I may say-whirlwind
of passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance, that may give it
smoothness. (III,2)

Ber.  Last night of all,
When yond same star that's WESTWARD FROM THE POLE [=north-north-west]
Had made his course to illume that part of heaven
Where now it burns,  (I,1,47)
