Mulberry

Coriolanus, [3.2.74-82]. Volumnia. “I prithee now, my son,/ Go to them, with this bonnet in thy hand,/ And thus far having stretch’d it –here by with them–/ Thy knee bussing the stones; for in such business/ Action is eloquence, and the eyes of th’ ignorant/ More learned than the ears; waving thy head,/ Which often thus correcting thy stout heart,/ Now humble as the ripest mulberry/ That will not holdl the handling.”
