    • Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?
    • Come live with me and be my Love, And we will all the pleasures prove That hills and valleys, dales and fields, Or woods or steepy mountain yields. And we will sit upon the rocks, And see the shepherds feed their flocks By shallow rivers, to whose falls Melodious birds sing madrigals.

    • From jigging veins of rhyming mother wits, And such conceits as clownage keeps in pay, We'll lead you to the stately tent of war, Where you shall hear the Scythian Tamburlaine Threatening the world with high astounding terms, And scourging kingdoms with his conquering sword. View but his picture in this tragic glass, And then applaud his fortunes as you please.

    • So march away, and let due praise be given Neither to fate nor fortune, but to Heaven.
    • Love me little, love me long.
    • What doctrine call you this, Che sera, sera: What will be, shall be? Divinity, adieu!
    • When all the world dissolves, And every creature shall be purified, All places shall be hell that are not heaven.
    • Hell hath no limits, nor is circumscrib'd In one self place; but where we are is hell, And where hell is, there must we ever be.
    • My heart is harden'd, I cannot repent.
    • Was this the face that launch'd a thousand ships, And burnt the topless towers of Ilium? Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss! Her lips suck forth my soul: see, where it flies!
    • O, thou art fairer than the evening air Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.
    • Cut is the branch that might have grown full straight, And burned is Apollo's laurel bough, That sometime grew within this learned man.
    • Comparisons are odious.
    • I'm armed with more than complete steel,- The justice of my quarrel.
