Time travels in divers paces with divers persons. I'll tell you who Time ambles withal, who Time trots withal, who Time gallops withal, and who he stands still withal.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at III, ii)
        [Time]

Tongues I'll hang on every tree
  That shall civil sayings show. . . .
      - As You Like It (Celia at III, ii) [Tongue]

You have a nimble wit; I think 'twas made of Atalanta's heels.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at III, ii) [Wit]

He hath a pair of cast lips of Diana. A nun of winter's sisterhood kisses not more religiously; the very ice of chastity is in then.
      - As You Like It (Celia at III, iii)
        [Kisses]

Truly, I would the gods had made thee poetical.
      - As You Like It (Touchstone at III, iii)
        [Poets]

A nun of winter's sisterhood kisses not more religiously; the very ice of chastity is in them.
      - As You Like It (Celia at III, iv)
        [Chastity]

And his kissing is as full of sanctity as the touch of holy bread.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at III, iv)
        [Kisses]

(Rosalind:) I' faith, his hair is of a good color.
  (Celia:) An excellent color. Your chestnut was ever the only color.

I pray you do not fall in love with me,
  For I am falser than vows made in wine.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at III, v)
        [Falsity : Love]

Omittance is no quittance.
      - As You Like It (Phebe at III, v)
        [Proverbs]

So holy and so perfect is my love,
  And I in such a poverty of grace,
    That I shall think it a most plenteous crop
      To glean the broken ears after the man
        That the main harvest reaps.
      - As You Like It (Silvius at III, v)
        [Harvest : Love]

The best thing in him
  Is his complexion; and faster than his tongue
    Did make offense, his eye did heal it up.
      - As You Like It (Phebe at III, v) [Eyes]

Thou tell'st me there is murder in mine eye;
  'Tis pretty, sure, and very probable,
    That eyes, that are the frail'st and softest things,
      Who shut their coward gates on atomies,
        Should be called tyrants, butchers, murderers.
      - As You Like It (Phebe at III, v) [Eyes]

Wherever sorrow is, relief would be.
  If you sorrow at my grief in live,
    My giving love your sorrow and my grief
      Were both extermined.
      - As You Like It (Silvius at III, v)
        [Sorrow]

Come, woo me, woo me; for now I am in holiday humor and like enough to consent.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i)
        [Holidays]

Farewell, Monsieur Traveller. Look you lisp and wear strange suits, disable all the benefits of your own country, be out of love with your nativity, and almost chide God for making you that countenance you are; or I will scarce think you have swam in a gundello.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i)
        [Traveling]

I had rather have a fool to make me merry than experience to make me sad: and to travel for it too.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i) [Folly]

I have neither the scholar's melancholy, which is emulation; nor the musician's, which is fantastical; nor the courtier's, which is proud; not the soldier's which is ambitious; nor the lawyer's, which is politic; nor the lady's, which is nice; nor the lover's, which is all these: but it is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, which, by often rumination, wraps me in a most humorous sadness.
      - As You Like It (Jaques at IV, i)
        [Melancholy : Traveling]

Make the doors upon a woman's wit, and it will out at the casement; shut that, and 'twill out at the keyhole; stop that, 'twill fly with the smoke out at the chimney.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i) [Wit]

Men have died from time to time, and worms have eaten them, but not for love.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i) [Man]

O coz, coz, coz, my pretty little coz, that thou didst know how many fathom deep I am in love! But it cannot be sounded. My affection hath an unknown bottom, like the Bay of Portugal.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i) [Love]

Say 'a day,' without the 'ever.' No, no, Orlando; men are April when they woo, December when they wed. Maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i)
        [Matrimony]

Very good orators, when they are out, they will spit; and for lovers, lacking--God warn us!--matter, the cleanliest shift is to kiss.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i)
        [Oratory]

Well, Time is the old justice that examines all such offenders, and let Time try.

      - As You Like It (Rosalind at IV, i)
        [Desire]
