  • Time doth transfix the flourish set on youth,
    And delves the parallels in beauty's brow,
    Feeds on the rarities of nature's truth,
    And nothing stands but for his scythe to mow.
    (William Shakespeare, "")

  • What I believe, I'll wall;
    What know, believe; and what I can redress,
    As I shall find the time to friend, I will.
    (William Shakespeare, "")

  • And now what rests but that we spend the time; With stately triumphs, mirthful comic shows, Such as befits the pleasure of the court; Sound drums and trumpets farewell sour annoy; For here, I hope, begins our lasting joy.
    (William Shakespeare)

  • He was to imagine me his
    love, his mistress; and I set him every day to woo me; at which
    time would I, being but a moonish youth, grieve, be effeminate,
    changeable, longing and liking, proud, fantastical, apish,
    shallow, inconstant, full of tears, full of smiles; for every
    passion something and for no passion truly anything, as boys and
    women are for the most part cattle of this colour; would now like
    him, now loathe him; then entertain him, then forswear him; now
    weep for him, then spit at him; that I drave my suitor from his
    mad humour of love to a living humour of madness; which was, to
    forswear the full stream of the world and to live in a nook
    merely monastic.
    (William Shakespeare, "")

  • Appear it to your mind
    That, through the sight I bear in things to come,
    I have abandon'd Troy, left my possession,
    Incurr'd a traitor's name, expos'd myself
    From certain and possess'd conveniences
    To doubtful fortunes, sequest'ring from me all
    That time, acquaintance, custom, and condition,
    Made tame and most familiar to my nature;
    And here, to do you service, am become
    As new into the world, strange, unacquainted-
    I do beseech you, as in way of taste,
    To give me now a little benefit
    Out of those many regist'red in promise,
    Which you say live to come in my behalf.
    (William Shakespeare, "")

  • I wasted time, and now doth time waste me;
    For now hath time made me his numb'ring clock:
    My thoughts are minutes; and with sighs they jar
    Their watches on unto mine eyes, the outward watch,
    Whereto my finger, like a dial's point,
    Is pointing still, in cleansing them from tears.
    (William Shakespeare, "")

  • And thus the whirligig of time brings in his revenges.
    (William Shakespeare)

  • To this I witness call the fools of Time,
    Which die for goodness, who have lived for crime.
    (William Shakespeare, "")

  • For if you were by my unkindness shaken
    As I by yours, y'have passed a hell of time,
    And I, a tyrant, have no leisure taken
    To weigh how once I suffered in your crime.
    (William Shakespeare, "")

  • Nature hath framed strange fellows in her time.
    (William Shakespeare)

  • Thus we play the fool with the time and the spirits of the wise sit in the clouds and mock us.
    (William Shakespeare)

  • Men at some time are masters of their fates.
    (William Shakespeare)

  • Sir,
    For holy offices I have a time; a time
    To think upon the part of business which
    I bear i' th' state; and nature does require
    Her times of preservation, which perforce
    I, her frail son, amongst my brethren mortal,
    Must give my tendance to.
    (William Shakespeare, "")
