In delivering my son from me, I bury a second husband.

I learn in this letter that Don Peter of Arragon

comes this night to Messina.

Much Ado About Nothing


In sooth, I know not why I am so sad:

It wearies me; you say it wearies you;

I thought the king had more affected the Duke of

Albany than Cornwall.

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,

Which in the eleventh year of the last king's reign

Was like, and had indeed against us pass'd,

But that the scambling and unquiet time

Did push it out of farther question.

Draws on apace;

To see fair Padua, nursery of arts,

I am arrived for fruitful Lombardy,

The pleasant garden of great Italy;

Here let us breathe and haply institute

A course of learning and ingenious studies.
