Death is a fearful thing.

O! Let me not be mad, not mad, sweet heaven! Keep me in temper, I would not be mad!

No I will be the pattern of all patience, I will say nothing.

I had rather have a fool to make me merry, than experience to make me sad and to travel for it too!

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

If you can look into the seeds of time and say which grain will grow and which will not, speak then unto me.

The stroke of death is as a lover's pinch which hurts and is desired.

Use every man after his desert, and who should 'scape whipping?

Virtue itself scapes not calumnious strokes.

O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend. The brightest heaven of invention, A kingdom for a stage, princes to act.

The fashion of the world is to avoid cost, and you encounter it.

There was never yet fair woman, but she made mouths in a glass.

Things done well and with a care exempt themselves from fear.

Lord, Lord, how subject we old men are to this vice of lying!

Sweet mercy is nobility's true badge.

It is the stars, the stars above us, govern our conditions.

As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.

If it be a sin to covet honor I am the most offending soul.

I were better to be eaten to death with a rust, than to be scoured to nothing with perpetual motion.

What man defy the devil. Consider he's an enemy to mankind.
