(About Ignorance, Love, Man, Wit)

Thy noble shape is but a form of wax
Digressing from the valour of a man;
Thy dear love sworn but hollow perjury,
Killing that love which thou hast vow'd to cherish;
Thy wit, that ornament to shape and love,
Misshapen in the conduct of them both,
Like powder in a skilless soldier's flask,
is get afire by thine own ignorance,
And thou dismemb'red with thine own defence.

(The Tragedy Of Romeo And Juliet)

Go, coward as thou art.
William Shakespeare

If my dear love were but the child of state,
It might for Fortune's bastard be unfathered,
As subject to Time's love or to Time's hate,
Weeds among weeds, or flowers with flowers gathered.
William Shakespeare

Keeper, I prithee sit by me awhile;
My soul is heavy, and I fain would sleep.
William Shakespeare

How long a time lies in one little word.
William Shakespeare

Good morning to you, fair and gracious daughter.
William Shakespeare

Thou seest I have more flesh than another man, and therefore more frailty.
William Shakespeare
