The capon burns, the pig falls from the spit,
  The clock hath strucken twelve upon the bell;
    My mistress made it one upon my cheek:
      She is so hot because the meat is cold;
        The meat is cold because you come not home;
          You come not home because you have no stomach;
            You have no stomach, having broke your fast;
              But we, that know what 'tis to fast and pray,
                Are penitent for your default to-day.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Ephesus at I, ii) [Cookery]

I see, the jewel best enamelled
  Will lose his beauty; yet the gold bides still
    That others touch, and often touching will
      Wear gold; and no man that hath a name,
        By falsehood and corruption doth it shame.
      - The Comedy of Errors (Adriana at II, i)
        [Gold : Jewels]

Why, headstrong liberty is lashed with woe.
  There's nothing situate under heaven's eye
    But hath his bound, in earth, in sea, in sky.
      - The Comedy of Errors (Luciana at II, i)
        [Liberty]

Ay, sir, and wherefore; for they say every why hath a wherefore.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Syracuse at II, ii)
        [Proverbs : Reason]

Come, I will fasten on this sleeve of thine:
  Thou art an elm, my husband, I a vine,
    Whose weakness married to thy stronger state
      Makes with me thy strength to communicate.
        If aught possess thee from me, it is dross,
          Usurping ivy, brier, or idle moss;
            Who all for want of pruning, with intrusion
              Infect thy sap and live on thy confusion.
      - The Comedy of Errors (Adriana at II, ii)
        [Matrimony : Plants]

There's a time for all things.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Antipholus of Syracuse at II, ii) [Time]

This is the fairy land. O spite of spites,
  We talk with goblins, owls, and sprites!
    If we obey them not, this will ensue:
      They'll suck our breath, or pinch us black and blue.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Syracuse at II, ii) [Fairies]

Was there ever any man thus beaten out of season,
  When in the why and the wherefore is neither rime nor reason?
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Syracuse at II, ii) [Reason]

When the sun shines let foolish gnats make sport,
  But creep in crannies when he hides his beams.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Antipholus of Syracuse at II, ii) [Sun]

. . . For slander lives upon succession,
  For ever housed where it gets possession.
      - The Comedy of Errors

I hold your dainties cheap, sir, and your welcome dear.
      - The Comedy of Errors (Balthazar at III, i)

O villain, thou hast stol'n both mine office and my name!
  The one ne'er got me credit, the other mickle blame.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Ephesus at III, i) [Thieving]

O, Signior Balthazar, either at flesh or fish,
  A table-full of welcome makes scarce one dainty dish.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Antipholus of Ephesus at III, i)
        [Welcome]

Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.
      - The Comedy of Errors (Balthazar at III, i)
        [Welcome]

If you did wed my sister for her wealth,
  Then for her wealth's sake use her with more kindness:
    Or if you like elsewhere, do it by stealth;
      Muffle your false love with some show of blindness:
        Let not my sister read it in your eye;
          Be not thy tongue thy own shame's orator;
            Look sweet, spear fair, become disloyalty;
              Apparel vice like virtue's harbinger;
                Bear a fair presence, though your heart be tainted;
                  Teach sin the carriage of a holy saint;
                    Be secret-false: what need she be acquainted?
      - The Comedy of Errors (Luciana at III, ii)
        [Oratory]

O train me not, sweet mermaid, with thy note,
  To drown me in thy sister's flood of tears!

        [Mermaids]

He is deformed, crooked, old and sere,
  Ill-faced, worse bodied, shapeless everywhere;
    Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
      Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
      - The Comedy of Errors (Adriana at IV, ii)
        [Character]

I cannot, nor I will not hold me still;
  My tongue, though not my heart, shall have his will.
      - The Comedy of Errors (Adriana at IV, ii)
        [Tongue]

Fly pride, says the peacock: mistress, that you know.
      - The Comedy of Errors

Marry, he must have a long spoon that must eat with the devil.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Syracuse at IV, iii)
        [Devil : Eating]

Master, if you do, expect spoon-meat, or bespeak a long spoon.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Syracuse at IV, iii) [Eating]

Some devils ask but the parings of one's nail,
  A rush, a hair, a drop of blood, a pin,
    A nut, a cherry stone;
      But she, more covetous, would have a chain.
        Master, be wise; and if you give it her,
          The devil will shake her chain and fright us with it.
      - The Comedy of Errors
         (Dromio of Syracuse at IV, iii)
        [Superstition]

I am an ass indeed; you may prove it by my long ears. I have served him from the hour of my nativity to this instant, and have nothing at his hands for my service but blows. When I am cold, he heats me with beating; when I am warm, he cools me with beating.

I will attend my husband, be his nurse,
  Diet his sickness, for it is my office,
    And will have no attorney but myself;
      And therefore let me have him home with me.
