My man's as true as steel.
      - [Proverbs]

My master hath been an honorable gentleman; tricks he hath had in him which gentlemen have.
      - [Gentlemen]

My May of life is fallen into the sear, the yellow leaf; and that which should accompany old age, as honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, I must not look to have; but in their stead, curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath which the poor heart would fain deny and dare not.
      - [Misfortune]

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
  Coral is far more red than her lips' red:
    If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
      If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
        I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
          But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
            And in some perfumes is there more delight
              Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
                I love to hear her speak; yet well I know
                  That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
                    I grant, I never saw a goddess go;
                      My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
      - [Disparagement]

My tongue's use is to me no more
  Than an unstringed viol or a harp.
      - [Tongue]

My tongue, though not my heart, shall have his will.
      - [Tongue]

My way of life
  Is fall'n into the sear and yellow leaf.
      - [Decay]

My will enkindled by mine eyes and ears,
  Two traded pilots 'twixt the dangerous shores,
    Of will and judgment.
      - [Will]

Myself, myself confound!
  Heaven, and fortune, bar me happy hours!
    Day, yield me not thy light; nor night, thy rest!
      Be opposite all planets of good luck
        To my proceeding, if, with pure heart's love,
          Immaculate devotion, holy thoughts,
            I tender not thy beauteous princely daughter!
      - [Oaths]

Natural graces, that extinguish art.
      - [Grace]

Nature hath meal and bran, contempt and grace.
      - [Contrast]

Nature teaches beasts to know their friends.
      - [Friends]

Nature's tears are reason's merriment.
      - [Tears]

Nature, as it grows again toward earth, is fashioned for the journey, dull and heavy.
      - [Age]

Naught is had, all is spent, where our desire is got without content.
      - [Contentment]

Nay, her foot speaks.
      - [Feet]

Nay, take my life and all, pardon not that;
  You take my house, when you do take the prop
    That doth sustain my house; you take my life,
      When you do take the means whereby I live.
      - [Theft]

Nay, then, farewell!
  I have touch'd the highest point of all my greatness;
    And from that full meridian of my glory,
      I haste now to my setting. I shall fall
        Like a bright exhalation in the evening,
          And no man see me more.
      - [Greatness]

Never anger made good guard for itself.
      - [Anger]

Never anything can be amiss, when simpleness and duty tender it.
      - [Duty]

Never give her o'er;
  For scorn at first makes after-love the more.
    If she do frown, 'tis not in hate of you,
      But rather to beget more love in you;
        If she do chide, 'tis not to have you gone,
          For why, the fools are mad if left alone.
      - [Women]

Night's swift dragons cut the clouds full fast,
  And yonder shines Aurora's harbinger;
    At whose approach, ghosts wand'ring here and there,
      Troop home to churchyards.
      - [Dawn]

No beast as fierce but knows some touch of pity.
      - [Pity]

No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity.
      - [Pity]

No ceremony that to great ones belongs,--not the king's crown nor the deputed sword, the marshal's truncheon nor the judge's robe, become them with one half so good a grace as mercy does.
      - [Mercy]
