The even mead, that erst brought sweetly forth
  The freckled cowslip, burnet, and green clover,
    Wanting the scythe, all uncorrected, rank,
      Conceives by idleness, and nothing teems
        But hateful docks, rough thistles, kecksies, burrs,
          Losing both beauty and utility.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Burgundy at V, ii) [Cowslips]

      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Burgundy at V, ii) [Weeds]

Farewell? a long farewell to all my greatness!
  This is the state of man: to-day he puts forth
    The tender leaves of hope; to-morrow blossoms,
      And bears his blushing honors thick upon him;
        The third day comes a frost, a killing frost,
          And when he thinks, good easy man, full surely
            His greatness is a-ripening, nips his root,
              And then he falls as I do.
      - The Life of King Henry VIII
         (Wolsay at III,ii) [Ambition : Farewell]

Great men should drink with harness on their throats.

  Than to abhor himself-- . . .

Good day, sir.
      - The Life of Timon of Athens (Poet at I, i)
        [Books (First Lines)]

How this grace
  Speaks his own standing! What a mental power
    This eye shoots forth! How big imagination
      Moves in this lip! To the dumbness of the gesture
        One might interpret.
      - The Life of Timon of Athens (Poet at I, i)

My free drift
  Halts not particularly, but moves itself
    In a wide sea of wax; no levelled malice
      Infects one comma in the course I hold,
        But flies an eagle flight, bold and forth on,
          Leaving no tract behind.
      - The Life of Timon of Athens (Poet at I, i)
        [Eagles]

Painting is welcome.
  The painting is almost the natural man;
    For since dishonor traffics with man's nature

        Even such as they give out.
      - The Life of Timon of Athens
         (Timon at I, i) [Painting]

The fire i' th' flint
  Shows not till it be struck; our gentle flame
    Provokes itself and like the current flies
      Each bound it chafes.

        [Fire]

The fire i' the flint
  Shows not till it be struck.

(Timon:) Wrought he not well that painted it?
  (Apemantus:) He wrought better that made the painter, and yet he's but a filthy piece of work.

  But to support him after.

Well,

Friendship's full of dregs.

Here's that which is too weak to be a sinner:
  Honest water, which ne'er left man i' th' mire.

Like madness is the glory of this life
  As this pomp shows to a little oil and root.
