'Tis beauty truly blent, whose red and white
  Nature's own sweet and cunning hand laid on.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Viola at I, v) [Beauty]

'Tis in grain, sir; 'twill endure wind and weather.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Olivia at I, v) [Proverbs]

Well, God give them wisdom that have it, and those that are fools, let them use their talents.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Clown at I, v) [Wisdom]

'What is your parentage?'
  'Above my fortunes, yet my state is well.
    I am a gentleman.' I'll be sworn thou art.
      Thy tongue, thy face, thy limbs, actions, and spirit
        Do give thee fivefold blazon.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Olivia at I, v) [Gentlemen]

Wit, an't be thy will, put me into good fooling. Those wits that think they have thee do very oft prove fools, and I that am sure I lack thee may pass for a wise man. For what says Quinapalus? "Better a witty fool than a foolish wit?"
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Clown at I, v) [Wit]

Alas, our frailty is the cause, not we,
  For such as we are made of, such we be.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Viola at II, ii) [Frailty]

He does it with a better grace, but I do it more natural.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Andrew at II, iii) [Grace]

Come away, come away, death,
  And in sad cypress let me be laid.
    Fly away, fly away, breath;
      I am slain by a fair cruel maid.
        My shroud of white, stuck all with yew,
          O, prepare it.
            My part of death, no one so true
              Did share it.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Singers at II, iv), a song [Death]

I would have men of such constancy put to sea, that their business might be everything, and their intent everywhere; for that's it that always makes a good voyage of nothing.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Clown at II, iv) [Constancy]

If ever thou shalt love,
  In the sweet pangs of it remember me;
    For such as I am all true lovers are,
      Unstaid and skittish in all motions else
        Save in the constant image of the creature
          That is beloved.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Orsino, Duke of Illyria at II, iv)
        [Constancy]

Let still the woman take
  An elder than herself: so wears she to him,
    So sways she level in her husband's heart;
      For, boy, however we do praise ourselves,
        Our fancies are more giddy and unfirm,
          More longing, wavering, soon lost and worn,
            Than women's are.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Orsino, Duke of Illyria at II, iv)
        [Matrimony]

Now the melancholy god protect thee, and the tailor make thy doublet of changeable taffeta, for thy mind is a very opal.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Clown at II, iv) [Mind]

Now, good Cesario, but that piece of song,
  That old and antique song we heard last night.
    Methought it did relieve my passion much,
      More than light airs and recollected terms
        Of these most brisk and giddy-paced times.
          Come, but one verse.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Orsino, Duke of Illyria at II, iv)
        [Songs]

She never told her love,
  But let concealment, like a worm i' th' bud,
    Feed on her damask cheek. She pined in thought;
      And, with a green and yellow melancholy,
        She sat like Patience on a monument,
          Smiling at grief.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Viola at II, iv) [Love : Proverbs]

She pined in thought;
  And, with a green and yellow melancholy,
    She sat like Patience on a monument,
      Smiling at grief.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Viola at II, iv) [Patience]

Then let thy love be younger than thyself,
  Or thy affection cannot hold the bent;
    For women are as roses, whose fair flow'r,
      Being once displayed, doth fall that very hour.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Orsino, Duke of Illyria at II, iv)
        [Love : Matrimony]

Contemplation makes a rare turkey cock of him. How he jets under his advanced plumes!
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Fabian at II, v) [Contemplation]

Get ye all three into the box tree. Malvolio's coming down this walk. He has been yonder i' the sun practicing behavior to his own shadow this half hour. Observe him, for the love of mockery; for I know this letter will make a contemplative idiot of him. Close, in the name of jesting. Lie thou there; for here comes the trout that must be caught with tickling.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Maria at II, v) [Fishing]

He will come to her in yellow stockings, and 'tis a color she abhors, and cross-gartered, a fashion she detests; and he will smile upon her, which will now be so unsuitable to her disposition, being addicted to a melancholy as she is, that it cannot but turn him into a notable contempt.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Maria at II, v) [Apparel]

'If this fall into thy hand, revolve. In my stars I am above thee, but be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em.'
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Malvolio at II, v) [Greatness]

Jove and my stars be praised. Here is yet a postscript.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Malvolio at II, v) [Post]

Let thy tongue tang arguments of state; put thyself into the trick of singularity.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Malvolio at II, v) [Character]

Lie thou there; for here comes the trout that must be caught with tickling.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Maria at II, v) [Fish : Fishing : Trout]

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Malvalio at II, v) [Greatness : Proverbs]

Do not extort thy reasons from this clause,
  For that I woo, thou therefore hast no cause;
    But rather reason thus with reason fetter,
      Love sought is good, but given unsought is better.
      - Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Olivia at III, i) [Love]
