To thine own self be true.
Joy delights in Joy.
Hear the meaning within the word.
My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.
I am in blood
Stepped in so far that, should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go oer.
If all the year were playing holidays, to sport would be as tedious as to work: but when they seldom come, they wished for come, and nothing pleaseth but rare accidents.

The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness

A goodly apple rotten at the heart.
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!

In such business
Action is eloquence, and the eyes of th’ ignorant
More learned than the ears.
Doubt that the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt love.
Rich honesty dwells like a miser, sir, in a poor house; as your pearl in a foul oyster.
Beware of entrance to a quarrel; but, being in, bear it that the opposer may beware of thee.
Be great in act, as you have been in thought.
This was the noblest Roman of them all.
All the conspirators save only he
Did that they did in envy of great Caesar.
He only in a general honest thought
And common good to all, made one of them.
His life was gentle, and the elements
So mixed in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, “This was a man.”
Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
While thou livest, keep a good tongue in thy head.
Cowards die many times before their deaths. The valiant never taste of death but once.
