Think you, a little din can daunt mine ears?
  Have I not in my time heard lions roar?
    Have I not heard the sea, puff'd up with winds,
      Rage like an angry boar, chafed with sweat
        Have I not heard great ordnance in the field,
          And heaven's artillery thunder in the skies?
            Have I not in a pitched battle heard
              Loud 'larums, neighing steeds, and trumpets' clang
                And do you tell me of a woman a tongue?
      - [Temper]

Think'st thou I'll endanger my soul gratis?
      - [Soul]

This act is an ancient tale new told;
  And, in the last repeating, troublesome,
    Being urged at a time unseasonable.
      - [Tales]

This bodes some strange eruption to our state.
      - [Politics]

This day hath made
  Much work for tears in many a English mother,
    Whose sons lie scatter'd on the bleeding ground;
      Many a widow's husband grovelling lies,
        Coldly embracing the discolor'd earth.
      - [Battle]

This day shall change all griefs and quarrels into love.
      - [Birthday : Christmas]

This England never did, nor never shall,
  Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror.
      - [England]

This goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory.
      - [Earth]

This heart shall break into a hundred thousand flaws or ere I'll weep.
      - [Weeping]

This is all as true as it is strange;
  Nay, it is ten times true; for truth is truth
    To th' end of reckoning.
      - [Truth]

This is an art which does mend nature,--change it rather; but the art itself is nature.
      - [Art]

This is he
  That kiss'd away his hand in courtesy;
    This is the ape of form, monsieur the nice,
      That when he plays at tables, chides the dice
        In honorable terms; nay, he can sing
          A mean most meanly; and in ushering,
            Mend him who can; the ladies call him, sweet;
              The stairs, as he treads on them, kiss his feet.
      - [Coxcomb]

This is some fellow,
  Who having been prais'd for bluntness, doth affect
    A saucy roughness and constrains the garb
      Quite from his nature: he can't flatter, he!
        An honest mind and plain,--he must speak truth!
          And they will take it so; if not he's plain.
            These kind of knaves I know, which in this plainness
              Harbor more craft, and far corrupter ends,
                Than twenty silly, ducking observants,
                  That stretch their duty nicely.
      - [Bluntness]

This land of such dear souls, this dear, dear land,
  Dear for her reputation through the world.
      - [England]

This majestical roof, fretted with golden fire.
      - [Sky : Stars]

This muddy vesture of decay.
      - [Mortality]

This precious stone set in the silver sea,
  Which serves it in the office of a wall,
    Or as a moat defensive to a house,
      Against the envy of less happier lands;
        This blessed plot, this earth, this realm; this England.
      - [England]

This senior junior, giant-dwarf, Dan Cupid:
  Regent of love rhymes, lord of folded arms.
    The anointed sovereign of sighs and groans,
      Liege of all loiterers and malcontents.
      - [Cupid]

This sickness doth infect
  The very, life-blood of our enterprise.
      - [Disease]

This the soldier's life,
  To have their balmy slumbers wak'd with strife.
      - [Soldiers]

This token serveth for a flag of truce
  Betwixt ourselves and all our followers.
      - [Flags]

This word, "rebellion," it had froze them up, as fish are in a pond.
      - [Rebellion]

This yellow slave
  Will knit and break religions; bless the accurs'd;
    Make the hoar leprosy ador'd; place thieves,
      And give them title, knee, and approbation,
        With senators on the bench.
      - [Money]

Those gold candles fixed in heaven's air.
      - [Stars]

Those happy smilets that played on her ripe lip seemed not to know what guests were in her eyes; which parted thence as pearls from diamonds dropped.
      - [Smiles]
