Reason thus with life:
  If I do lose thee, I do lose a thing
    That none but fools would keep; a breath thou art,
      Servile to all the skyey influences
        That does this habitation where thou keep'st
          Hourly afflict; merely, thou art death's fool,
            For him thou labor'st by thy flight to shun,
              And yet run'st toward him still.
      - Measure for Measure
         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, i) [Life]

The miserable have no other medicine,
  But only hope:
    I have hope to live, and am prepared to die.
      - Measure for Measure (Claudio at III, i)
        [Hope : Proverbs]

The sense of death is most in apprehension,
  And the poor beetle that we tread upon
    In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
      As when a giant dies.
      - Measure for Measure (Isabella at III, i)
        [Beetles : Proverbs]

The sense of death is most in apprehension.
      - Measure for Measure (Isabella at III, i)
        [Beetles : Proverbs]

Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful.
      - Measure for Measure
         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, i) [Virtue]

What's yet in this
  That bears the name of life? Yet in this life
    Lie hid more thousand deaths; yet death we fear,
      That makes these odds all even.
      - Measure for Measure
         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, i) [Death]

Craft against vice I must apply.
      - Measure for Measure
         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, ii)
        [Proverbs]

He who the sword of heaven will bear
  Should be as holy as severe;
    Pattern in himself to know,
      Grace to stand, and virtue go;
        More nor less to others paying
          Than by self-offenses weighing.
            Shame to him whose cruel striking
              Kills for faults of his own liking.
      - Measure for Measure
         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, ii)
        [Holiness : Judges]

No might nor greatness in mortality
  Can censure 'scape; back-wounding calumny
    The whitest virtue strikes. What king so strong
      Can tie the gall up in the slanderous tongue?
      - Measure for Measure
         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, ii)
        [Calumny : Proverbs]

O, what may man within him hide,
  Though angel on the outward side!

         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, ii)
        [Hypocrisy : Proverbs]

Peace be with you!
  He who the sword of heaven will bear
    Should be as holy as severe;
      Pattern in himself to know,
        Grace to stand, and virtue go;
          More nor less to other paying
            Than by self-offenses weighing.
      - Measure for Measure
         (Vincentio, the Duke at III, ii)

What king so strong,
  Can tie the gall up in a slanderer's tongue?

        [Proverbs]

Here comes a man of comfort, whose advice
  Hath often stilled my brawling discontent.
      - Measure for Measure (Mariana at IV, i)
        [Advice]

Take, O take those lips away,
  That so sweetly were forsworn;
    And those eyes, the break of day,
      Lights that do mislead the morn;
        But my kisses bring again, bring again,
          Seals of love, but sealed in vain, sealed in vain.
      - Measure for Measure (Singing Boy at IV, i)
        [Kisses]

Dear Isabel,
  I have a motion which imports your good,
    Whereto if you'll a willing ear incline,
      What's mine is yours, and what is yours is mine.
        So, bring us to our palace, where we'll show
          What's yet behind, that's meet you all should know.

It may be right, but you are i' the wrong
  To speak before your time; proceed.
      - Measure for Measure

Nay, it is ten times true, for truth is truth
  To th' end of reck'ning.
      - Measure for Measure (Isabella at V, i)
        [Truth]

O, your desert speaks loud, and I should wrong it
  To lock it in the wards of covert bosom,
    When it deserves with characters of brass
      A forted residence 'gainst the tooth of time
        And razure of oblivion.
