The air, a charter’d libertine, is still;
And the mute wonder lurketh in men’s ears,
To steal his sweet and honied sentences;
So that the act and practick part of life
Must be the mistress to this theorick. William Shakespeare.

By theories, the practick part is lost. John Denham.

Of this false footman, cloaked with simpleness. F. Queen.
Thereto his subtile engines he doth bend,
His practick wit, and his fair filed tongue,
With thousand other sleights. Fairy Queen.
