I do love nothing in the world so well as you- is not that strange?
I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano!
Sit by my side, and let the world slip: we shall ne'er be younger.
The world is but a word.Were it all yours to give it in a breath,How quickly were it gone
O, how full of briers is this working-day world.
O, I have pass'd a miserable night,
So full of fearful dreams, of ugly sights,
That, as I am a Christian faithful man,
I would not spend another such a night
Though 'twere to buy a world of happy days-
So full of dismal terror was the time!
How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
Pity the world, or else this glutton be:
To eat the world's due, by the grave and thee.
I, that with my sword
Quarter'd the world, and o'er green Neptune's back
With ships made cities, condemn myself to lack
The courage of a woman; less noble mind
Than she which by her death our Caesar tells
I am conqueror of myself.
O, if, I say, you look upon this verse,
When I perhaps compounded am with clay,
Do not so much as my poor name rehearse,
But let your love even with my life decay,
Lest the wise world should look into your moan
And mock you with me after I am gone.
O, what a world of vile ill-favoured faults, Looks handsome in three hundred pounds a year.
None in the world; nor do I know the man.
Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;
Suns of the world may stain when heaven's sun staineth.
I 'gin to grow aweary of the sun, And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.
We pray you throw to earth
This unprevailing woe, and think of us
As of a father; for let the world take note
You are the most immediate to our throne,
And with no less nobility of love
Than that which dearest father bears his son
Do I impart toward you.
Fleet the time carelessly, as they did in the golden world.
O world, world thus is the poor agent despised. O traitors and bawds, how earnestly are you set a-work, and how ill requited Why should our endeavor be so loved, and the performance so loathed.
None in the world; but return with an invention, and
clap upon you two or three probable lies.
This land of such dear souls, this dear dear land, Dear for her reputation through the world, Is now leased out, I die pronouncing it, Like to a tenement or pelting farm England, bound in with the triumphant sea Whose rocky shore beats back the envi
O good old man, how well in thee appears The constant service of the antique world, When service sweat for duty, not for meed Thou art not for the fashion of these times, Where none will sweat but for promotion, And having that do choke their service up Even with the having....
So shines a good deed in a weary world.
We came into the world like brother and brother; And now let's go hand in hand, not one before another.
This world is not for aye, nor 'tis not strange
That even our loves should with our fortunes change;
For 'tis a question left us yet to prove,
Whether love lead fortune, or else fortune love.
This is the excellent foppery of the world that when we are sick in fortune -- often the surfeits of our own behavior -- we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and stars, as if we were villains on necessity, fools by heavenly compulsion, knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical predominance, drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence. An admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition on the charge of a star.
There's nothing in this world can make me joy.
Now his son,
Henry the Eighth, life, honour, name, and all
That made me happy, at one stroke has taken
For ever from the world.
Fortune reigns in gifts of the world.
That I might see what the old world could say
To this composèd wonder of your frame;
Whether we are mended, or whe'er better they,
Or whether revolution be the same.
As all the world is cheered by the sun,
So I by that; it is my day, my life.
Beyond all limit of what else i' th' world,
Do love, prize, honour you.
