Some innocents 'scape not the thunderbolt.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at II, v)
        [Proverbs]

Thou shalt be whipped with wire and stewed in brine,
  Smarting in ling'ring pickle.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at II, v)
        [Punishment]

Though it be honest, it is never good
  To bring bad news; give to a gracious message
    An host of tongues, but let ill tidings tell
      Themselves when they be felt.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at II, v)
        [News]

'Twas merry when
  You wagered on your angling, when your diver
    Did hang a salt fish on his hook, which he
      With fervency drew up.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Charmian at II, v)
        [Fishing]

All men's faces are true, whatsome'er their hands are.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Menas at II, vi)
        [Face]

No, Antony, take the lot:
  But, first or last, your fine Egyptian cookery
    Shall have the fame. I have heard that Julius Caesar
      Grew faw with feasting there.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Pompey at II, vi)
        [Eating]

The higher Nilus swells,
  The more it promises; as it ebbs, the seedsman
    Upon the slime and ooze scatters his grain,
      And shortly comes the harvest.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at II, vii)
        [Nile River]

Who seeks, and will not take when once 'tis offered,
  Shall never find it more.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Menas at II, vii)
        [Opportunity]

For learn this, Silius,
  Better to leave undone, than by our deed
    Acquire too high a fame when him we serve's away.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Ventidius at III, i)
        [Fame]

Farewell, my sister, fare thee well.
  The elements be kind to thee, and make
    Thy spirits all of comfort: fare thee well.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Caesar at III, ii)
        [Farewell]

Her tongue will not obey her heart, nor can
  Her heart inform her tongue--the swan's down-feather
    That stands upon the swell at full of tide,
      And neither way inclines.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at III, ii)
        [Swans]

If I lose my honor,
  I lose myself: better I were not yours
    Than yours so branchless.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at III, iv)
        [Honor]

Celerity is never more admired
  Than by the negligent.
      - Antony and Cleopatra
         (Cleopatra at III, vii) [Haste]

The greater cantle of the world is lost
  With very ignorance; we have kissed away
    Kingdoms and provinces.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Scarus at III, x)
        [Kisses]

Fortune knows
  We scorn her most when most she offers blows.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at III, xi)
        [Fortune]

I have offended reputation,
  A most unnoble swerving.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at III, xi)
        [Reputation]

I see men's judgments are
  A parcel of their fortunes, and things outward
    Do draw the inward quality after them
      To suffer all alike.
      - Antony and Cleopatra
         (Enobarbus at III, xiii) [Judgment]

I will be treble-sinewed, hearted, breathed,
  And fight maliciously; for when mine hours
    Were nice and lucky, men did ransom lives
      Of me for jests; but now I'll set my teeth
        And send to darkness all that stop me.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at III, xiii)
        [Luck]

Shall I say to Caesar
  What you require of him? For he partly begs
    To be desired to give. It much would please him
      That of his fortunes you should make a staff
        To lean upon.
      - Antony and Cleopatra
         (Thidias at III, xiii) [Liberality]

'Tis your noblest course:
  Wisdom and fortune combating together,
    If that the former dare but what it can,
      No chance may shake it.
      - Antony and Cleopatra
         (Thidias at III, xiii) [Wisdom]

When valor preys on reason,
  It eats the sword it fights with: I will seek
    Some way to leave him.
      - Antony and Cleopatra
         (Enobarbus at III, xiii) [Valor]

Give him no breath, but now
  Make boot of his distraction: never anger
    Made good guard for itself.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Maecenas at IV, i)
        [Anger]

This morning, like the spirit of a youth
  That means to be of note, begins betimes.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at IV, iv)
        [Youth]

To business that we love we rise betime
  And go to't with delight.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at IV, iv)
        [Business]

Bid that welcome
  Which comes to punish us, and we punish it,
    Seeming to bear it lightly.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at IV, xiv)
        [Fortitude : Welcome]
