William Shakespeare

Friendship is constant in all other things <br>Save in the office and affairs of love: <br>Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues; <br>Let every eye negotiate for itself <br>And trust no agent.

Silence is the perfectest herald of joy: I were but little happy, if I could say how much.

I thank God I am as honest as any man living that is an old man and no honester than I.

What a deformed thief this fashion is.

I will wear my heart upon my sleeve. For daws to peck at.

I am not merry; but I do beguile<br>The thing I am, by seeming otherwise.

Excellent wretch! Perdition catch my soul,<br>But I do love thee! and when I love thee not, <br>Chaos is come again.

Speak to me as to thy thinkings, <br>As thou dost ruminate, and give thy worst of thoughts <br>The worst of words.

O, beware, my lord, of jealousy!<br>It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock<br>The meat it feeds on.

I understand a fury in your words,<br>But not the words.

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? <br>It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?

Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow, <br>That I shall say good night till it be morrow.

Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.

When he is best, he is a little worse than a man; and when he is worst, he is little better than a beast.

I dote on his very absence.

My meaning in saying he is a good man, is to have you understand me that he is sufficient.

The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.

It is a wise father that knows his own child.

I will make a Star-chamber matter of it.

It is a familiar beast to man, and signifies love.

If there be no great love in the beginning, yet heaven may decrease it upon better acquaintance, when we are married and have more occasion to know one another: I hope, upon familiarity will grow more contempt.

Thou art the Mars of malcontents.

We burn daylight.

This is the short and the long of it.
