Codger: Why, so can I, or so can any man;
But will they come back when you do call for them?
Wicked Witch: Why I can teach you, cousin, to command the Devil.
Codger: And I can teach thee, coz, to shame the devil---
By telling the truth. Tell the truth and shame the devil.
Shakespeare - Henry the Fourth, Part 1 - Act 3, scene 1, 52-58 with names changed to illuminate the innocent.
