To kill, I grant, is sin's extremest gust;
  But, in defence, by mercy, 'tis most just.
      - [Self-defense]

To lapse in fulness is sorer than to lie for need; and falsehood is worse in kings than beggars.
      - [Falsehood]

To leave this keen encounter of our wits, and fall somewhat into a slower method.
      - [Wit]

To loathe the taste of sweetness, whereof little more than a little is by much too much.
      - [Satiety]

To make a virtue of necessity.
      - [Proverbial Phrases]

To my shame, I see
  The imminent death of twenty thousand men,
    That, for a fantasy and trick of fame,
      Go to their graves like beds; fight for a plot
        Whereon the numbers cannot try the cause,
          Which is not tomb enough, and continent,
            To hide the slain.
      - [War]

To revenge is no valor, but to bear.
      - [Patience : Revenge]

To say you are welcome were superfluous.
      - [Welcome]

To show virtue her own feature, scorn her own image, and the very age and body of the time his form and presence.
      - [Virtue]

To sleep, perchance to dream; ay, there's the rub;
  For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
      Must give us pause.
      - [Sleep]

To some kind of men their graces serve them but as enemies.
      - [Grace]

To steal his sweet and honeyed sentences.
      - [Plagiarism]

To that dauntless temper of his mind he hath a wisdom that doth guide his valor to act in safety.
      - [Valor]

To thine own self be true,
  And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any man.
      - [Loyalty]

To vouch this is no proof
  Without more certain and more overt tests
    Than these thin habits and poor likelihoods
      Of modern seeming do prefer against him.
      - [Accusation]

To wail friends lost
  Is not by much so wholesome--profitable,
    As to rejoice at friends but newly found.
      - [Friends]

To weep, is to make less the depth of grief;
  Tears, then, for babes; blows and revenge for me.
      - [Tears]

To what base uses may we return! Why may not imagination trace the noble dust of Alexander, till it find it, stopping a bunghole? As thus: Alexander died, Alexander was buried, Alexander returneth to dust; the dust is earth: of earth we make loam. And why of that loam, whereto be was converted, might they not stop a beer barrel?
      - [Death]

To wilful men,
  The injuries that they themselves procure
    Must be their school-masters.
      - [Experience : Willfulness]

To willful men, the injuries that they themselves procure must be their schoolmasters.
      - [Injury]

To you your father should be as a god;
  One that compos'd your beauties; yea, and one,
    To whom you are but as a form in wax,
      By him imprinted, and within his power
        To leave the figure, or disfigure it.
      - [Fathers]

Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be
  Ere one can say "it lightens."
      - [Electricity]

Too much of a good thing.
      - [Excess]

Too much sadness hath congealed your blood.
      - [Sadness]

Touch but my lips with those fair lips of thine,
  (Though mine be not so fair, yet are they red)
    The kiss shall be thine own as well as mine--
      What seest thou in the ground? hold up thy head;
        Look in mine eyeballs; there thy beauty lies;
          Then why not lips on lips, since eyes in eyes?
      - [Kisses]
