Every Fourth Thing

And thence retire me to my Milan, where
Every third thought shall be my grave.

— Prospero, from The Tempest

Every single action.

Every other word.

Every third thought.

Every fourth thing.

Notes:

I should have ordered this fourfold by 1: words, 2: thoughts, 3: actions, 4: things, as per Richard McKeon. But, I have my reasons.
