O sir, you are old; nature in you stands on the very verge of her confine; you should be ruled and led by some discretion, that discerns your fate better than you yourself.
      - [Age]

O that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains! that we should with joy, pleasance, revel, and applause, transform ourselves into beasts!
      - [Drunkenness]

O that you could turn your eyes towards the napes of your necks, and make but an interior survey of your good selves!
      - [Self-examination]

O the world is but a word; were it all yours to give it in a breath, how quickly were it gone!
      - [Generosity]

O theft most base, that we have stolen what we do fear to keep!
      - [Theft]

O thou sweet king-killer, and dear divorce
  Twixt natural son and sire! thou bright defiler
    Of hymen's purest bed! thou valiant Mars!
      Thou ever young, fresh, lov'd, and delicate wooer,
        Whose blush doth thaw the consecrated snow
          That lies on Dian's lip! thou visible god,
            That solder'st close impossibilities,
              And mak'st them kiss! and speak'st with every tongue,
                To every purpose!
      - [Gold]

O thou that dost inhabit in my breast, leave not the mansion so long tenantless; lest, growing ruinous, the building fall and leave no memory of what it was!
      - [Separation]

O thou who dost inhabit in my breast;
  Leave not the mansion so long tenantless;
    Lest growing ruinous the building fall,
      And leave no memory of what it was.
      - [Absence]

O thoughts of men accurst! Past and to come seems best; things present, worst.
      - [Discontent]

O villains, vipers, dogs, easily won to fawn on any man!
      - [Servility]

O wretched state! O bosom black as death! O limed soul that, struggling to be free, art more engaged! Help, angels! Make assay! Bow, stubborn knees! and, heart with strings of steel, be soft as sinews of the new-born babe!
      - [Repentance]

O'ercanopied with luscious woodbine, with sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine.
      - [Roses]

O, 'tis the cunning livery of hell,
  The damned'st body to invest and cover
    In princely guards.
      - [Sin]

O, answer me:
  Let me not burst in ignorance! but tell,
    Why thy canoniz'd bones, hearsed in death,
      Have burst their cerements! why the sepulchre
        Wherein we saw thee quietly in-urn'd,
          Hath op'd his ponderous and marble laws,
            To cast thee up again?
      - [Ghosts]

O, be sick, great greatness, and bid thy ceremony give thee cure! Thinkest thou the fiery fever will go out with titles blown from adulation?
      - [Greatness]

O, he sits high in all the people's hearts:
  And that, which would appear offence in us,
    His countenance, like richest alchymy,
      Will change to virtue and to worthiness.
      - [Popularity]

O, how ripe in show
  Thy lips, those kissing cherries, tempting grow.
      - [Lips]

O, I cry your mercy;
  There is my purse, to cure that blow of thine.
      - [Gold]

O, it came over my ear like the sweet south, that breathes upon a bank of violets, stealing, and giving odor!
      - [Music]

O, it comes over my memory, as doth the raven over the infected house, boding to all.
      - [Remembrance]

O, my Antonio, I do know of these,
  That therefore only are reputed wise,
    For saying nothing.
      - [Silence]

O, she is fallen
  Into a pit of ink, that the wide sea
    Hath drops too few to wash her clean again.
      - [Guilt]

O, that a man might know
  The end of this day's business, ere it come,
    But it sufficeth that the day will end;
      And then the end is known.
      - [Eternity]

O, that a mighty man of such descent,
  Of such possessions, and so high esteem,
    Should be infused with so foul a spirit!
      - [Degeneracy]

O, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains!
      - [Intemperance]
