Know of your youth, examine well your blood,
  Whether, if you yield not to your father's choice,
    You can endure the livery of a nun;
      For aye to be in shady cloister mewed;
        To live a barren sister all your life,
          Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.
            Thrice blessed they, that master so their blood,
              To undergo such maiden pilgrimage.
      - [Nuns]

Know you not, master, to some kind of men their graces serve them but as enemies? No more do yours; your virtues, gentle master, are sanctified and holy traitors to you. Oh, what a world is this, when what is comely envenoms him that bears it!
      - [Grace]

Larded all with sweet flowers which bewept to the grave did go, with true-love showers.
      - [Weeping]

Last scene of all, that ends this strange, eventful history, is second childishness, and mere oblivion; sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.
      - [Age]

Lawless are they that make their wills their law.
      - [Self-will]

Lay not that flattering unction to your soul.
      - [Flattery]

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.
      - [Threats]

Lend thy serious hearing to what I shall unfold.
      - [Attention]

Let gentleness thy strong enforcement be.
      - [Gentleness]

Let me have men about me that are fat; sleek-headed men, and such as sleep o' nights; yonder Cassius has a lean and hungry look; he thinks too much; such men are dangerous.
      - [Gluttony]

Let me hear from thee by letters.
      - [Post]

Let me wipe off this honorable dew, that silverly doth progress on thy cheeks.
      - [Tears]

Let men say, we be men of good government; being governed, as the sea is, by our noble and chaste mistress the moon, under whose countenance we steal.
      - [Government]

Let the end try the man.
      - [End]

Let the sap of reason quench the fire of passion.
      - [Passion]

Let those that play your clowns speak no more than is set down for them.
      - [Acting]

Let us be sacrificers, but no butchers.
      - [Justice]

Let us not burthen our remembrance with a heaviness that's gone.
      - [Past : Regret]

Let us sit upon the ground
  And tell sad stories of the death of kings:
    How some have been depos'd, some slain in war,
      Some haunted by the ghosts they have depos'd,
        Some poison'd by their wives, some sleeping kill'd,
          All murder'd.
      - [Royalty]

Let us teach ourselves that honorable step, not to outdo discretion.
      - [Excess]

Let your own discretion be your tutor; suit the action to the word, the word to the action.
      - [Discretion]

Let's take the instant by the forward top; for we are old, and on our quickest decrees, the inaudible and noiseless foot of time steals, ere can effect them.
      - [Action]

Lie ten nights awake carving the fashion of a new doublet.
      - [Fashion]

Life is a shuttle.
      - [Life]

Life's but a walking shadow--a poor player,
  That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
      Told by idiot, full of sound and fury
        Signifying nothing.
      - [Life]
