Primrose, thorny

Hamlet, [1.3.45-51]. Ophelia. “I shall the effect of this good lesson keep/ as watchman to my heart. But, good my brother,/ Do not, as some ungracious pastors do,/ Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven,/ Whiles, like a puff’d and reckless libertine,/ Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads,/ And recks not his own rede.”
