For in the fatness of these pursy times
  Virtue itself of vice must pardon beg.
      - [Virtue]

For it comes to pass oft that a terrible oath, with a swaggering accent sharply twanged off, gives manhood more approbation than ever proof itself would have earned him.
      - [Oaths]

For men, like butterflies, show not their mealy wings but to the summer.
      - [Summer]

For my own part, I shall be glad to learn of noble men.
      - [Associates]

For my voice, I have lost it with hollaing and singing of anthems.
      - [Singers]

For never yet one hour in his bed
  Have I enjoyed the golden dew of sleep,
    But have been waked by his timorous dreams.
      - [Dreams]

For night's swift dragons cut the clouds full fast, and yonder shines Aurora's harbinger; at whose approach ghosts, wandering here and there, troop home to churchyards.
      - [Morning]

For now I stand as one upon a rock environed with a wilderness of sea, who marks the waxing tide grow wave by wave, expecting ever when some envious surge will in his brinish bowels swallow him.
      - [Ocean]

For oaths are straws, men's faiths are wafer-cakes,
  And hold-fast is the only dog.
      - [Prudence]

For several virtues
  Have I lik'd several women; never any
    With so full soul, but some defect in her
      Did quarrel with the noblest grace she ow'd,
        And put it to the foil.
      - [Grace]

For the rain it raineth every day.
      - [Rain]

For they say, if money go before, all ways do lie open.
      - [Wealth]

For what I will, I will, and there an end.
      - [Decision : Resolution]

For youth no less becomes
  The light and careless livery that it wears,
    Than settled age his sables, and his weeds
      Importing health and graveness.
      - [Youth]

Forbear sharp speeches to her; she's a lady,
  So tender of rebukes that words are strokes,
    And strokes death to her.
      - [Reproof]

Forget, forgive; conclude, and be agreed.
      - [Reconciliation]

Fortune brings in some boats that are not steered.
      - [Fortune]

Foul deeds will rise,
  Though all the earth o'erwhelm them, to men's eyes.
      - [Crime : Deeds]

Foul-cankering rust the hidden treasure frets;
  But gold, that's put to use, more gold begets.
      - [Gold]

Frame your mind to mirth and merriment,
  Which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life.
      - [Mirth]

France is a dog-hole, and it no more merits the tread of a man's foot.
      - [France]

Friends, I owe more tears to this dead man than you shall see me pay.
      - [Tears]

Friendship is full of dregs.
      - [Friendship]

From love of grace,
  Lay not that flatt'ring unction to your soul,
    That not your trespass, but my madness speaks:
      It will but skin and film the ulc'rous place;
        Whilst rank corruption, mining all within,
          Infects unseen; confess yourself to heav'n;
            Repent what's past, avoid what is to come;
              And do not spread the compost on the weeds
                To make them ranker.
      - [Sin]

From off this brier pluck a white rose with me.
      - [Roses]
