The end crowns all, <br>And that old common arbitrator, Time, <br>Will one day end it.

If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.

He that commends me to mine own content<br> Commends me to the thing I cannot get.

I like this place, and willingly would waste my time in it.

The more pity, that fools may not speak wisely what wise men do foolishly.

Cursed be he that moves my bones.

Things are neither good nor bad but thinking makes it so.

This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind.

Though inclination be as sharp as will,<br> My stronger guilt defeats my strong intent,<br> And, like a man to double business bound,<br> I stand in pause where I shall first begin,<br> And both neglect.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

O, I am slain!

When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom, the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.

From this day forward until the end of the world...we in it shall be remembered...we band of brothers.

There is a tide in the affairs of men,<br> Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;<br> Omitted, all the voyage of their life<br> Is bound in shallows and in miseries.

Love comforteth like sunshine after rain.

Courage mounteth with occasion.

Come what come may,<br> Time and the hour runs through the roughest day.

False face must hide what the false heart doth know.

There was a star danced, and under that was I born.

I wasted time, now time doth waste me.

No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity, but I know none, therefore am no beast.

I shall despair. There is no creature loves me;<br> And if I die no soul will pity me:<br> And wherefore should they, since that I myself<br> Find in myself no pity to myself?

Love goes toward love as schoolboys from their books; but love from look, toward school with heavy looks.
