That sport best pleases that doth least know how

From Love’s Labour’s Lost (5.2.514-518):

That sport best pleases that doth least know how –
Where zeal strives to content and the contents
Dies in the zeal of that which it presents;
Their form confounded makes most form in mirth,
When great things labouring perish in their birth.
