Crab-tree, nettle, graft, root

Coriolanus, [2.1.182-190]. Menenius. “A hundred thousand welcomes! I could weep/ And I could laugh, I am light and heavy. Welcome./ A curse begin at very root on’s heart/ That is not glad to see thee! You are three/ That Rome should dote on; yet, by the faith of men,/ We have some old crab-trees here at home that will not/ Be grafted to your relish. Yet welcome, warriors! We call a nettle but a nettle, and/ The faults of foolsl but folly.” Cominius “Ever right.”
