I must have liberty
  Withal, as large a charter as the wind,
    To blow on whom I please, for so fools have.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at II, vii)
        [Liberty]

Most friendship is faining, most loving mere folly:
  Then, heigh-ho, the holly.
    This life is most jolly.
      - As You Like It (Amiens at II, vii)
        [Friendship]

O noble fool,
  A worth fool! Motley's the only wear.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at II, vii) [Folly]

One that hath been a courtier,
  And says, if ladies be but young and fair,
    They have the gift to know it.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at II, vii) [Women]

Sit down and feed, and welcome to our table.
      - As You Like It (Duke Senior at II, vii)
        [Eating]

The thorny point
  Of bare distress hath ta'en from me the show
    Of smooth civility; yet am I inland bred
      And know some nurture.
      - As You Like It (Orlando at II, vii)
        [Courtesy]

Then a soldier,
  Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
    Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
      Seeking the bubble reputation
        Even in the cannon's mouth.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at II, vii)
        [Soldiers]

Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
  And shining morning face, creeping like snail
    Unwillingly to school.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at II, vii)
        [Students]

There is an old poor man
  Who after me hath many a weary step
    Limped in pure love. Till he be first sufficed,
      Oppressed with two weak evils, age and hunger,
        I will not touch a bit.
      - As You Like It (Orlando at II, vii) [Age]

Thou seest we are not all alone unhappy:
  This wide and universal theatre
    Presents more woeful pageants than the scene
      Wherein we play in.
      - As You Like It (Duke Senior at II, vii)
        [World]

'Tis but an hour ago since it was nine,
  And after one hour more 'twill be eleven;
    And so, from hour to hour, we ripe and ripe,
      And then, from hour to hour, we rot and rot;
        And thereby hangs a tale.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at II, vii) [Life]

What would you have? Your gentleness shall force
  More than your force move us to gentleness.
      - As You Like It (Duke Senior at II, vii)
        [Gentleness]

Why, who cries out on pride
  That can therein tax any private party?
    Doth it not flow as hugely as the sea
      Till that the weary very means do ebb?
      - As You Like It (Jaques at II, vii) [Pride]

But indeed an old religious uncle of mine taught me to speak, who was in his youth an inland man; one that knew courtship too well, for there he fell in love. I have heard him read many lectures against it; and I thank God I am not a woman, to be touched with so many giddy offenses as he hath generally taxed their whole sex withal.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at III, ii)
        [Women]

Come, shepherd, let us make an honorable retreat; though not with bag and baggage, yet with scrip and crippage.
      - As You Like it (Touchstone at III, ii)
        [Music : Proverbs]

I do desire we may be better strangers.
      - As You Like It (Orlando at III, ii)
        [Desire]

I prithee take the cork out of thy mouth, that I may drink thy tidings.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at III, ii)
        [Talk]

I will chide no breather in the world but myself, against whom I know most faults.
      - As You Like It (Orlando at III, ii)
        [Faults : Judgment]

It is as easy to count atomies as to resolve the propositions of a lover; but take a taste of my finding him, and relish it with good observance.
      - As You Like It (Celia at III, ii) [Love]

O wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful, and yet again wonderful, and after that, out of all hooping!
      - As You Like It (Celia at III, ii) [Wonder]

(Rosalind:) But are you so much in love as your rhymes speak?
  (Orlando:) Neither rhyme nor reason can express how much.
      - As You Like It
         (Rosalind & Orlando at III, ii) [Love]

Run, run, Orlando, carve on every tree
  The fair, the chaste, and unexpressive she.
      - As You Like It (Orlando at III, ii)
        [Women]

Sir, I am a true laborer; I earn that I eat, get that I wear, no man hate, envy no man's happiness, glad of other men's good, with my harm; and the greatest of my pride is to see my ewes graze and my lambs suck.
      - As You Like It (Corin at III, ii)
        [Contentment]

They were all like one another as halfpence are, every one fault seeming monstrous till his fellow-fault came to match it.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at III, ii)
        [Faults]

Those that are good manners at the court are as ridiculous in the country as the behavior of the country is most mockable at the court. You told me you salute not at the court but you kiss your hands. That courtesy would be uncleanly if courtiers were shepherds.
      - As You Like It (Corin at III, ii)
        [Comparison]
