THREATS
[ Also see Blustering Curses Oaths Promises Quarrels Vows ]

Stand there, damn'd meddling villain, and be silent;
  For if thou utt'rest but a single word,
    A cough or hem, to cross me in my speech,
      I'll send thy cursed spirit from the earth,
        To bellow with the damn'd!
      - Joanna Baillie

Set hills on hills betwixt me and the man
  That utters this, and I will scale them all;
    And from the utmost top fall on his neck,
      Like thunder from a cloud.
      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher

Go ahead, make my day.
      - Clint Eastwood

I consider it a mark of great prudence in a man to abstain from threats or any contemptuous expressions, for neither of these weaken the enemy, but threats make him more cautious, and the other excites his hatred, and a desire to revenge himself.
      - Niccolo Machiavelli (Macchiavelli)

For Christian shame, put by this barbarous brawl;
  He that stirs next to carve for his own rage,
    Holds his soul light; he dies upon his motion.
      - William Shakespeare

Hence,
  Horrible villain! or I'll spurn thine eyes
    Like balls before me; I'll unhair thy head;
      Thou shalt be whipt with wire, and stew'd in brine,
        Smarting in ling'ring pickle.
      - William Shakespeare

I pr'ythee take thy fingers from my throat;
  Sir, though I am not splenetive and rash,
    Yet have I something in me dangerous,
      Which let thy wiseness fear: away thy hand.
      - William Shakespeare

Leave wringing of your hands: Peace; sit you down,
  And let me wring your heart: for so I shall,
    If it be made of penetrable stuff;
      If damned custom have not braz'd it so,
        That it be proof and bulwark against sense.
      - William Shakespeare
