Yet thou dost look
  Like Patience gazing on kings' graves and smiling
    Extremity out of act.
      - Pericles Prince of Tyre (Pericles at V, i)
        [Patience]

There's no trust, no faith, no honesty, in men; all perjured, all forsworn, all nought, all dissemblers.
      - Romeo and Juliet [Unfaithfulness]

Both by myself and many other friends;
  But he, his own affections' counsellor,
    Is to himself--I will not say how true--
      But to himself so secret and so close,
        So far from sounding and discovery,
          As in the bud bit with an envious worm
            Ere he can spread his sweet leaves to the air
              Or dedicate his beauty to the sun.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Montague at I, i)
        [Decay]

Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast,
  Which thou wilt propagate, to have it prest
    With more of thine.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, i) [Grief]

He that is strucken blind cannot forget
  The precious treasure of his eyesight lost.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, i)
        [Blindness]

Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;
  Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;
    Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears.
      What is it else? A madness most discreet,
        A choking gall, and a preserving sweet.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, i) [Love]

Madam, an hour before the worshipped sun
  Peered forth the golden window of the East,
    A troubled mind drave me to walk abroad;
      Where, underneath the grove of sycamore
        That westward rooteth from this city side,
          So early walking did I see your son.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Benvolio at I, i)
        [Morning]

She'll not be hit
  With Cupid's arrow. She hath Dian's wit,
    And, in strong proof of chastity well armed,
      From Love's weak childish bow she lives unharmed.
        She will not stay the siege of loving terms,
          Nor bide th' encounter of assailing eyes,
            Nor ope her lap to saint-seducing gold.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, i) [Love]

Two households, both alike in dignity,
  In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
    From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
      Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Chorus at I, i)
        [Books (First Lines)]

Go thither, and with unattainted eye
  Compare her face with some that I shall show,
    And I will make thee think thy swan a crow.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Benvolio at I, ii)
        [Face]

One fire burns out another's burning,
  One pain is lessen'd by another's anguish;
    Turn giddy and be holp by backward turning;
      One desperate grief cures with another's languish.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Benvolio at I, ii)
        [Proverbs]

Such comfort as do lusty young men feel
  When well-apparelled April on the heel
    Of limping Winter treads, even such delight
      Among fresh fennel buds shall you this night
        Inherit at my house.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Capulet at I, ii)
        [April]

Take thou some new infection to thy eye,
  And the rank poison of the old will die.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Benvolio at I, ii)
        [Proverbs]

This night I hold an old accustomed feast,
  Whereto I have invited many a guest,
    Such as I love; and you among the store,
      One more, most welcome, makes my number more.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Capulet at I, ii)
        [Festivities]

Tut, man, one fire burns out another's burning;
  One pain is less'ned by another's anguish;
    Turn giddy, and be holp by backward turning;
      One desperate grief cures with another's languish.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Benvolio at I, ii)
        [Pain]

A man, young lady! lady, such a man
  As all the world--why he's a man of wax.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Nurse at I, iii) [Man]

God mark thee to his grace!
  Thou wast the prettiest babe that e'er I nursed.
    An I might live to see thee married once,
      I have my wish.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Nurse at I, iii)
        [Babyhood]

That book in many's eyes doth share the glory,
  That in gold clasps locks in the golden story;
    So shall you share all that he doth possess,
      By having him making yourself no less.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Wife at I, iii) [Books]

But he that hath the steerage of my course
  Direct my sail!
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, iv)
        [Destiny]

Come, we burn daylight, ho!
  Nay, that's not so.
    I mean, sir, in delay
      We waste our lights in vain, like lamps by day.
      - Romeo and Juliet
         (Mercutio & Romeo & Mercutio at I, iv)
        [Proverbs]

Nay, sit, nay, sit, good cousin Capulet,
  For you and I are past our dancing days.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Capulet at I, iv)
        [Dancing]

O, then, I see Queen Mab hath been with you.
  She is the fairies' midwife, and she comes
    In shape no bigger than an agate stone
      On the forefinger of an alderman,
        Drawn with a team of little atomies
          Over men's noses as they lie asleep;
            Her wagon spokes made of long spinner's legs,
              The cover, of the wings of grasshoppers;
                Her traces, of the smallest spider web;
                  Her collars, of the moonshine's wat'ry beams;
                    Her whip, of cricket's bone; the lash, of film;
                      Her wagoner, a small grey-coated gnat,
                        Not half so big as a round little worm
                          Pricked from the lazy finger of a maid;
                            Her chariot is an empty hazelnut,
                              Made by the joiner squirrel or old grub,
                                Time out o' mind the fairies coachmakers.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Mercutio at I, iv)
        [Fairies]

Sometimes she driveth o'er a soldier's neck,
  And then dreams he of cutting foreign throats,
    Of breaches, ambuscadoes, Spanish blades,
      Of healths five fathom deep; and then anon
        Drums in his ear, at which he starts and wakes,
          And being thus frighted, swears a prayer or tow
            And sleeps again.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Mercutio at I, iv)
        [Dreams]

True, I talk of dreams;
  Which are the children of an idle brain,
    Begot of nothing but vain fantasy;
      Which is as thin of substance as the air,
        And more inconstant than the wind, who woos
          Even now the frozen bosom of the North
            And, being angered, puffs away from thence,
              Turning his side to the dew-dripping South.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Mercutio at I, iv)
        [Dreams]

Here beauty hangs upon the cheek of night,
  Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear.
      - Romeo and Juliet (Romeo at I, v)
        [Proverbs]
