Are you good men and true?
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at III, iii) [Man]

God hath blessed you with a good name. To be a well-favored man is the gift of fortune, but to write and read comes by nature.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at III, iii) [Education]

Well, for your favor, sir, why, give God thanks and make no boast of it; and for your writing and reading, let that appear when there is no need of such vanity.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at III, iii) [Learning]

You are thought here to be the most senseless and fit man for the constable of the watch. Therefore bear you the lanthorn.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at III, iii) [Character]

A good old man, sir; he will be talking. As they say, "When the age is in, the wit is out." God help us! it is a world to see!
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at III, iv) [Wit]

Marry, sir, I would have some confidence with you that decerns you nearly.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at III, iv) [Confidence]

An two men ride of a horse, one must ride behind.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at III, v) [Horses]

But mine, and mine I loved, and mine I praised,
  And mine that I was proud on--mine so much
    That I myself was to myself not mine,
      Valuing of her--why she, O, she is fall'n
        Into a pit of ink, that the wide sea
          Hath drops too few to wash her clean again,
            And salt too little which may season give
              To her foul tainted flesh!
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at IV, i)
        [Guilt]

I have marked
  A thousand blushing apparitions
    To start into her face, a thousand innocent shames
      In angel whiteness beat away those blushes,
        And in her eye there hath appeared a fire
          To burn the errors that these princes hold
            Against her maiden truth.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Friar Francis at IV, i)
        [Blushes : Innocence]

If half thy outward graces had been placed
  About the thoughts and counsels of thy heart.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Claudio at IV, i)
        [Proverbs]

It is a man's office, but not yours.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Beatrice at IV, i)
        [Business]

It so falls out
  That what we have we prize not to the worth
    Whiles we enjoy it; but being lacked and lost,
      Why, then we rack the value.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Friar Francis at IV, i) [Proverbs]

No. Leonato,
  I never tempted her with word too large,
    But, as brother to his sister, showed
      Bashful sincerity and comely love.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Claudio at IV, i)
        [Sincerity]

O, what authority and show of truth
  Can cunning sin cover itself withal!
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Claudio at IV, i)
        [Sin]

She dying, as it must be so maintained,
  Upon the instant that she was accused,
    Shall be lamented, pitied, and excused
      Of every hearer; for it so falls out
        That what we have we prize not to the worth
          Whiles we enjoy it, but being lacked and lost,
            Why, then we rack the value, then we find
              The virtue that possession would not show us
                Whiles it was ours.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Friar Francis at IV, i) [Possession]

Talk with a man out at a window!--a proper saying!
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Beatrice at IV, i)
        [Talk]

Time hath not yet so dried this blood of mine,
  Nor age so eat up my invention,
    Nor fortune made such havoc of my means,
      Nor my bad life reft me so much of friends,
        But they shall find awaked in such a kind
          Both strength of limb and policy of mind,
            Ability in means, and choice of friends,
              To quit me of them throughly.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at IV, i)
        [Age]

Your daughter here the princess (left for dead),
  Let her awhile be secretly kept in,
    And publish it that she is dead indeed;
      Maintain a mourning ostentation,
        And on your family's old monument
          Hang mournful epitaphs, and do all rites
            That appertain unto a burial.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Friar Francis at IV, i) [Epitaphs]

O villain! thou wilt be condemned into everlasting redemption for this.
      - Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at IV, ii) [Redemption]

And shall, or some of us will smart for it.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Antonio at V, i)
        [Danger : Punishment]

But there is no such man; for, brother, men
  Can counsel and speak comfort to that grief
    Which they themselves not feel; but, tasting it,
      Their counsel turns to passion, which before
        Would give preceptial medicine to rage,
          Fetter strong madness in a silken thread,
            Charm ache with air and agony with words.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)
        [Grief : Insanity]

God knows I loved my niece,
  And she is dead, slandered to death by villains,
    That dare as well answer a man indeed
      As I dare take a serpent by the tongue.
        Boys, apes, braggarts, Jacks, milksops!
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Antonio at V, i)
        [Slander]

I cannot bid you bid my daughter live--
  That were impossible; but I pray you both,
    Possess the people in Messina here
      How innocent she died; and if your love
        Can labor aught in sad invention,
          Hang her an epitaph upon her tomb,
            And sing it to her bones--sing it to-night.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)
        [Epitaphs]

I pray thee cease thy counsel,
  Which falls into mine ears as profitless
    As water in a sieve.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)
        [Advice]

I will be flesh and blood;
  For there was never yet philosopher
    That could endure the toothache patiently,
      However they have writ the style of gods
        And make a push at chance and sufferance.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)
        [Dentistry : Endurance : Philosophy]
