'Tis not the many oaths that make the truth,
  But the plain single vow that is vowed true.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Diana at IV, ii) [Oaths]

E'en a crow o' th' same nest; not altogether so great as the first in goodness, but greater a great deal in evil. He excels his brother for a coward, yet his brother is reputed one of the best that is. In a retreat he outruns any lackey; marry, in coming on he has the cramp.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Parolles at IV, iii) [Cowards]

He will lie, sir, with such volubility that you would think truth were a fool; drunkenness is his best virtue, for he will be swine-drunk, and in his sleep he does little harm, save to his bedclothes about him; but they know his conditions and lay him in straw.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Parolles at IV, iii) [Lying]

Sir, for a cardecue he will sell the fee simple of his salvation, the inheritance of it, and cut th' entail from all remainders, and a perpetual succession for it perpetually.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Parolles at IV, iii) [Folly]

The web of life is of mingled yarn, good and ill together.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Second Lord at IV, iii) [Life : Proverbs]

The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together; our virtues would be proud if our faults whipped them not, and our crimes would despair if they were not cherished by our virtues.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Second Lord at IV, iii) [Life : Proverbs]

There's place and means for every man alive.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Parolles at IV, iii) [Opportunity]

This is your devoted friend, sir, the manifold linguist and the armipotent soldier.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Second Lord at IV, iii) [Linguists]

Who knows himself a braggart,
  Let him fear this; for it will come to pass
    That every braggart shall be found an ass.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Parolles at IV, iii) [Cowards]

All's well that ends well; still the fine's the crown.
  Whate'er the course, the end is the renown.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Helena at IV, iv) [End]

A scar nobly got, or a noble scar, is a good livery of honor; so belike is that.
      - All's Well That Ends Well (Lafew at IV, v)
        [Honor : Scars]

All is whole;
  Not one word more of the consumed time.
    Let's take the instant by the forward top;
      For we are old, and on our quick'st decrees
        Th' inaudible and noiseless foot of time
          Steals ere we can effect them.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (King of France at V, iii) [Time]

But love that comes too late,
  Like a remorseful pardon slowly carried,
    To the great sender turns a sour offense,
      Crying, 'That's good that's gone.'
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (King of France at V, iii) [Love]

For we are old, and on our quick'st decrees
  Th' inaudible and noiseless foot of time
    Steals ere we can effect them.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (King of France at V, iii) [Age]

He lost a wife
  Whose beauty did astonish the survey
    Of richest eyes, whose words all ears took captive,
      Whose dear perfection hearts that scorned to serve
        Humbly called mistress.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Lafew at V, iii) [Perfection]

If you shall marry,
  You give away this hand, and this is mine;
    You give away heaven's vows, and those are mine;
      You give away myself, which is known mine;
        For I by vow am so embodied yours
          That she which marries you must marry me--
            Either both or none.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Diana at V, iii) [Matrimony]

Our rash faults
  Make trivial price of serious thing we have,
    Not knowing them until we know their grave.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (King of France at V, iii) [Proverbs]

Praising what is lost
  Makes the remembrance dear.

So please your majesty, my master hath been an honourable gentleman. Tricks he hath had in him, which gentleman have.
      - All's Well That Ends Well
         (Parolles at V, iii) [Gentlemen]

The bitter past, more welcome is the sweet.
      - All's Well That Ends Well

The spirit of a youth
  That means to be of note, begins betimes.
      - Anthony and Cleopatra [Youth]

Your honor call you hence;
  Therefore be deaf to my unpitied folly,
    And all the gods go with you. Upon your sword
      Sit laurel victory, and smooth success
        Be strewed before your feet!
      - Anthony and Cleopatra
         (Cleopatra at I, iii) [War]

And all the gods go with you! I upon your sword
  Sit laurel victory; and smooth success
    Be strew'd before your feet.
      - Antony and Cleopatra [War]

Nay, but this dotage of our general's
  O'erflows the measure: those his goodly eyes
    That o'er the files and musters of war
      Have glowed like plated Mars, now bend, now turn
        The office and devotion of their view
          Upon a tawny front.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Philo at I, i)
        [Books (First Lines)]

There's beggary in the love that can be reckoned.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at I, i)
        [Love]
