PREPOSITIONS. For, variable use of

For, variable. The following passage illustrates the variableness of for:

“Princes have but their titles for (to represent) their glories,
An outward honour for (as the reward of) an inward toil,
And for (for the sake of gaining) unfelt (unsubstantial) imagination
They often feel a world of restless cares.
