  CHECK READING LIST (43)    << Prev Page    Displaying page 30 of 186    Next Page >> 

Light and lust are deadly enemies.
      - [Lust]

Light vanity, insatiate cormorant,
  Consuming means, soon preys upon itself.(Shakespeare} Hoy-day, what a sweep of vanity comes this way!
      - [Vanity]

Like a man to double business bound,
  I stand in pause where I shall first begin,
    And both neglect.
      - [Irresolution]

Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
  So do our minutes hasten to their end;
    Each changing place with that which goes before,
      In sequent toil all forwards do contend.
      - [Time]

Like bright metal on a sullen ground, my reformation, glittering over my fault, shall show more goodly and attract more eyes than that which hath no foil to set it off.
      - [Reformation]

Like Niobe, all tears.
      - [Tears]

Like one who draws the model of a house beyond his power to build it who, half through, gives o'er, and leaves his part-created cost a naked subject to the weeping clouds.
      - [Building]

Like the baseless fabric of this vision,
  The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,
    The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
      Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve;
        And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
          Leave not a rack behind.
      - [Dissolution]

Liquid pearl.
      - [Dew]

Live loath'd and long,
  Most smiling, smooth, detested parasites,
    Courteous destroyers, affable wolves, meek bears,
      You fools of fortune, trencher friends, time flies
        Cap and knee slaves, vapors, and minute jacks.
      - [Court]

Loan oft loses both itself and friend.
      - [Lending]

Look down, you gods,
  And on this couple drop a blessed crown.
      - [Matrimony]

Look how the world's poor people are amazed at apparitions, signs and prodigies!
      - [Superstition]

Look on beauty, and you shall see 'tis purchased by the weight; which therein works a miracle in Nature, making them lightest that wear most of it: so are those crisped snaky golden locks which make such wanton gambols with the wind upon supposed fairness, often known to be the dowry of a second head, the skull that bred them in the sepulchre.
      - [Hair]

Look to her, Moor; if thou host eyes to see:
  She has deceiv'd her father, and may thee.
      - [Deceit]

Look, the gentle day,
  Before the wheels of Phoebus, round about
    Dapples the drowsy east with spots of gray.
      - [Dawn]

Look, the morn, in russet mantle clad,
  Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastern hill.
      - [Dawn]

Look, the world's comforter, with weary gait,
  His day's hot task hath ended in the west:
    The owl, night's herald, shrieks--'tis very late;
      The sheep are gone to fold, birds to their nest;
        And coat-black clouds, that shadow heaven's light,
          Do summon us to part, and bid good night.
      - [Good Night]

Loose now and then a scattered smile, and that I will live upon.
      - [Smiles]

Lord Angelo is precise;
  Stands at a guard with envy, scarce confesses
    That his blood flows, or that his appetite
      Is more to bread than stone.
      - [Formality]

Love and meekness, lord,
  Become a churchman better than ambition:
    Win straying souls with modesty again,
      Cast none away.
      - [Clergymen : Ministers]

Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but love.
      - [Love]

Love is full of unbefitting strains; all wanton as a child, skipping, and vain; formed by the eye, and therefore, like the eye, full of strange shapes, of habits, and of forms.
      - [Love]

Love is merely a madness; and, I tell you, deserves as well a dark house and whip as madmen do; and the reason why they are not so punished and cured is that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love too.
      - [Love]

Love is not love
  Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove;
      O no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
        That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
          It is the star to every wandering bark,
            Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
              Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
                Within his bending sickle's compass come;
                  Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
                    But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error, and upon me proved;--
                      I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
      - [Love]
