Medlar

Timon of Athens, [4.3.305-317]. Apemantus. “The middle of humanity thou never knewest, but the extremity of both ends. When thou wast in thy gilt and thy perfume, they mock’d thee for too much curiosity; in thy rags thou know’st none, but art despis’d for the contrary. There’s a medlar for thee, eat it.” Timon “On what I hate I feed not.” Apemantus. “Dost hate a medlar?” Timon. “Ay, though it look like thee.” Apemantus. “An th’ hadst hated meedlers sooner, thou shouldst have lov’dl thyself better now.”
