By accident most strange, bountiful Fortune
  (Now, my dear lady) hath mine enemies
    Brought to this shore; and by my prescience
      I find my zenith doth depend upon
        A most auspicious star, whose influence
          If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes
            Will ever after droop.
      - The Tempest (Prospero at I, ii) [Fortune]

Full fathom five thy father lies;
  Of his bones are coral made;
    Those are pearls that were his eyes;
      Both of him that doth fade
        But doth suffer a sea-change
          Into something rich and strange.
      - The Tempest (Ariel's song at I, ii)
        [Change : Eyes]

Hark, hark! I hear
  The strain of strutting chanticleer
    Cry cock-a-diddle-dowe.
      - The Tempest (Ariel at I, ii) [Cocks]

I will be correspondent to command.
      - The Tempest (Ariel at I, ii) [Proverbs]

In few, they hurried us aboard a bark,
  Bore us some leagues to sea; where they prepared
    A rotten carcass of a butt, not rigged,
      Nor tackle, sail, nor mast; the very rats
        Instinctively have quit it.
      - The Tempest (Prospero at I, ii)
        [Shipwreck]

O, I have suffered
  With those that I saw suffer! a brave vessel
    (Who had no doubt some noble creature in her)
      Dashed all to pieces! O, the cry did knock
        Against my very heart! Poor souls, they perished!
      - The Tempest (Miranda at I, ii) [Shipwreck]

Oh, I have suffered
  With those that I saw suffer!
      - The Tempest (Miranda at I, ii) [Suffering]

Sitting on a bank,
  Weeping again the King my father's wrack,
    This music crept by me upon the waters,
      Allaying both their fury and my passion
        With its sweet air.
      - The Tempest (Ferdinand at I, ii) [Music]

So, of his gentleness,
  Knowing I loved my books, he furnished me
    From mine own library with volumes that
      I prize above my dukedom.
      - The Tempest (Prospero at I, ii) [Books]

Stained
  With grief, that's beauty's canter.
      - The Tempest (Prospero at I, ii) [Proverbs]

The very rats
  Instinctively had quit it.
      - The Tempest (Prospero at I, ii) [Proverbs]

There's nothing ill can dwell in such a temple.
  If the ill spirit have so fair a house,
    Good things will strive to dwell with't.
      - The Tempest (Miranda at I, ii) [Beauty]

When thou cam'st first,
  Thou strok'st me and made much of me; wouldst give me
    Water with berries in't; and teach me how
      To name the bigger light, and how the less,
        That burn by day and night; and then I loved thee
          And showed thee all the qualities o' th' isle,
            The fresh springs, brine-pits, barren place and fertile.
      - The Tempest (Caliban at I, ii) [Astronomy]

You taught me language, and my profit on't
  Is, I know how to curse. The red plague rid you
    For learning me your language!
      - The Tempest (Caliban at I, ii) [Language]

Your tale, sir, would cure deafness.
      - The Tempest (Miranda at I, ii) [Deafness]

How lush and lusty the grass looks! how green!
      - The Tempest (Gonzalo at II, i) [Grass]

Look, he's winding up the watch of his wit; by and by it will strike.
      - The Tempest (Sebastian at II, i) [Wit]

Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.
      - The Tempest (Trinculo at II, i) [Misery]

She that is Queen of Tunis; she that dwells
  Ten leagues beyond man's life; she that from Naples
    Can have no note, unless the sun were post--
      The man i' th' moon 's too slow--till new-born chins
        Be rough and razorable; she that from whom
          We all were sea-swallowed, though some cast again,
            And, by that destiny, to perform an act
              Whereof what's past is prologue, what to come,
                In yours and my discharge.
      - The Tempest (Antonio at II, i) [Past]

What's past is prologue.
      - The Tempest (Antonio at II, i) [Past]

While you here do snoring lie,
  Open-eyed conspiracy
    His time doth take.
      - The Tempest (Ariel at II, i) [Conspiracy]

You rub the sore
  When you should bring the plaster!
      - The Tempest (Gonzalo at II, i)
        [Medicine : Proverbs]

By this good light, this is a very shallow monster! I afeard of him? A very weak monster! The Man i' th' Moon? A most poor credulous monster!--Well drawn, monster, in good sooth!
      - The Tempest (Trinculo at II, ii)
        [Cowardice]

This is a devil, and no monster. I will leave him; I have no long spoon.
      - The Tempest (Stephano at II, ii) [Devil]

What have we here? a man or a fish? dead or alive? A fish: he smells like a fish; a very ancient and fishlike smell; a kind of not of the newest poor-John. A strange fish!
      - The Tempest (Trinculo at II, ii) [Fish]
