As You Like It
Measure for Measure
Gregory, o' my word, we'll not carry coals.
Romeo and Juliet
Hence! home, you idle creatures get you home:
If music be the food of love, play on;
In delivering my son from me, I bury a second husband.
Alls Well that Ends Well

Let fame, that all hunt after in their lives,
Live register'd upon our brazen tombs
And then grace us in the disgrace of death;
Love's Labours Lost
My lord, I'll tell you; that self bill is urged,

Anthony and Cleopatra
Now, fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hour
Draws on apace;

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;

And by the doom of death end woes and all.

With his good will and thy good company,
My trusty servant, well approved in all,
Here let us breathe and haply institute
A course of learning and ingenious studies.

That thou, [character's name deleted], who hast had my purse
As if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this.
