But thou know'st this,
  'Tis time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I, ii) [Kisses : Tyrants]

How dare the plants look up to heaven, from whence
  They have their nourishment?
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Helicanus at I, ii) [Presumption]

I knew him tyrannous; and tyrants' fears
  Decrease not, but grow faster than the years;
    And should he doubt it, as no doubt he doth,
      That I should open to the list'ning air
        How many worthy princes' bloods were shed
          To keep his bed of blackness unlaid ope,
            To lop that doubt, he'll fill this land with arms
              And make pretense of wrong that I have done him;
                When all, for mine, if I may call offense,
                  Must feel war's blow, who spares not innocence;
                    Which love to all, of which thyself art one,
                      Who now reproved'st me for't--
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I, ii) [Tyrants]

I'll take thy word for faith, not ask thine oath.
  Who shuns not to break one will crack both:
    But in our orbs we'll live so sound and safe
      That time of both this truth shall ne'er convince,
        Thou show'dst a subject's shine, I a true prince.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I, ii) [Oaths]

They do not abuse the king that flatter him.
  For flattery is the bellows blows up sin;
    The thing the which is flattered, but a spark
      To which that blast gives heat and stronger glowing;
        Whereas reproof, obedient and in order,
          Fits kings as they are men, for they may err.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Helicanus at I, ii) [Flattery]

Tyrants' fears
  Decrease not, but grow faster than their years.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I, ii) [Proverbs]

One sorrow never comes but brings an heir,
  That may succeed as his inheritor.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Cleon at I, iv)
        [Proverbs : Sorrow]

One sorrow never comes but brings an heir,
  That may succeed as his inheritor;
    And so in ours, some neighboring nation,
      Taking advantage of our misery,
        Hath stuffed the hollow vessels with their power,
          To beat us down, the which are down already;
            And make a conquest of unhappy,
              Whereas no glory 's got to overcome.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Cleon at I, iv)
        [Proverbs : Sorrow]

That were to blow at fire in hope to quench it;
  For who digs hills because they do aspire
    Throws down one mountain to cast up a higher.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Dionyza at I, iv)
        [Mountains]

This Tharsus, o'er which I have the government,
  A city on whom Plenty held full hand,
    For Riches strewed herself even in her streets;
      Whose towers bore heads so high they kissed the clouds,
        And strangers ne'er beheld but wond'red at;
          Whose men and dames so jetted and adorned,
            Like one another's glass to trim them by;
              Their tables were stored full, to glad the sight,
                And not so much to feed on as delight;
                  All poverty was scorned, and pride so great
                    The name of help grew odious to repeat.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Cleon at I, iv)
        [Delight]

Thou speak'st like him's untutored to repeat:
  Who makes the fairest show means most deceit.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Cleon at I, iv)
        [Deceit]

'Tis time to fear, when tyrants seem to kiss.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Pericles at I,ii)
        [Fear : Tyranny]

A man, whom both the waters and the wind
  In that vast tennis court have made the ball
    For them to play upon, entreats you pity him.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at II, i) [Destiny]

Nay, master, said not I as much when I saw the porpoise, how he bounced and tumbled? They say they're half fish, half flesh. A plague on them! They ne'er come but I look to be washed.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Third Fisherman at II, i)
        [Fish : Mammals : Porpoises]

(Second Fisherman:) Canst thou catch any fishes then?
  (Pericles:) I never practiced it.
    (Second Fisherman:) Nay, then thou wilt starve sure; for here's nothing to be got nowadays unless thou canst fish for 't.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Second Fisherman & Pericles at II, i)
        [Fishing]

(Third Fisherman:) Master, I marvel how the fishes live in the sea.
  (First Fisherman:) Why, as men do a-land--the great ones eat up the little ones.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Third & First Fisherman at II, i) [Fish]

Opinion's but a fool, that makes us scan
  The outward habit by the inward man.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Simonides, King of Pentapolis at II, ii)
        [Opinion]

Come, gentlemen, we sit too long on trifles
  And waste the time which looks for other revels.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Simonides, King of Pentapolis at II, iii)
        [Trifles]

Contend not, sir; for we are gentlemen
  Have neither in our hearts nor outward eyes
    Envied the great nor shall the low despise.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (First Knight at II, iii) [Gentlemen]

In framing an artist, art hath thus decreed,
  To make some good, but others to exceed;
    And you are her labored scholar.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Antiochus, King of Antioch at II, iii)
        [Art]

Whereby I see that Time's the king of men;
  He's both their parent, and he is their grave,
    And gives them what he will, not what they crave.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at II, iii) [Time]

To wisdom he's a fool that will not yield;
  And since Lord Helicane enjoineth us,
    We with our travels will endeavor it.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (First Lord at II, iv) [Folly]

I hold it ever
  Virtue and cunning were endowments greater
    Than nobleness and riches. Careless heirs
      May the two latter darken and expend;
        But immortality attends the former,
          Making a man a god.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Cerimon at III, ii) [Immortality : Virtue]

No, I will rob Tellus of her weed,
  To strow thy green with flowers. The yellows, blues,
    The purple violets, and marigolds,
      Shall, as a carpet, hand upon thy grave,
        While summer days do last.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Marina at IV, i)
        [Flowers]

This is the rarest dream that e'er dull sleep
  Did mock sad fools withal.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Pericles at V, i)
        [Dreams]
