It will be short; the interim is mine,
  And a man's life 's no more than to say 'one.'
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at V, ii)
        [Life]

Not a whit, we defy augury. There is special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come. The readiness is all.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at V, ii)
        [Providence]

O proud Death,
  What feast is toward in thine eternal cell
    That thou so many princes at a shot
      So bloodily hast struck?
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Fortinbras at V, ii) [Death]

O villainy! Ho! let the door be lock'd.
  Treachery! seek it out.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at V, ii)
        [Villainy]

So shall you hear
  Of carnal, bloody, and unnatural acts,
    Of accidental judgments, casual slaughters,
      Of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause,
        And, in this upshot, purposes mistook
          Fall'n on th' inventors' heads.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Horatio at V, ii) [Error]

You may as well say that's a valiant flea that dare eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
      - Henry V [Valor]

Sometimes hath the brightest day a cloud: and, after summer evermore succeeds barren winter, with his wrathful nipping cold: so cares and joys abound, as seasons fleet.
      - Henry VI [Vicissitudes]

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.
      - Henry VI, Part II [Promptness]

Women are soft, mild, pitiful, and flexible,
  Thou, stern, obdurate, flinty, rough, remorseless.
      - Henry VI, Part III [Women]

The deep of night is crept upon our talk,
  And Nature must obey necessity.
      - Julius Caesar [Sleep]

Thy heart is big; get thee apart and weep.
  Passion, I see, is catching; for mine eyes,
    Seeing those beads of sorrow stand in thine,
      Begin to water.
      - Julius Caesar [Tears]

(Flavius:) Thou art a cobbler, art thou?
  (Cobbler:) Truly, sir, all that I live by is with the awl. I meddle with no tradesman's matters nor women's matters; but withal--I am indeed, sir, a surgeon to old shoes. When they are in great danger, I recover them. As proper men as ever trod upon neat's leather have gone upon my handiwork.
    (Flavius:) But wherefore art not in thy shop to-day?
      Why dost thou lead these men about the streets?
        (Cobbler:) Truly, sir, to wear out their shoes, to get myself into more work.
      - Julius Caesar (Flavius & Cobbler at I, i)
        [Shoemaking]

Go, go, good countrymen, and for this fault
  Assemble all the poor men of your sort;
    Draw them to the Tiber banks, and weep your tears
      Into the channel, till the lowest stream
        Do kiss the most exalted shores of all.
      - Julius Caesar (Flavius at I, i)
        [Tiber River]

Hence! home, you idle creatures, get you home!
  Is this a holiday? What, know you not,
    Being mechanical, you ought not walk
      Upon a laboring day without the sign
        Of your profession? Speak, what trade art thou?
      - Julius Caesar (Flavius at I, i)
        [Books (First Lines)]

Many a time and oft
  Have you climbed up to walls and battlements,
    To tow'rs and windows, yea, to chimney tops,
      Your infants in your arms, and there have sat
        The livelong day, with patient expectation,
          To see great Pompey pass the streets of Rome.
      - Julius Caesar (Marullus at I, i)
        [Expectation]

(Marcullus:) You, sir, what trade are you?
  (Cobbler:) Truly, sir, in respect of a fine workman I am but, as you would say, a cobbler.
    (Marcullus:) But what trade art thou? Answer me directly.
      (Cobbler:) A trade, sir, that I hope I may use with a safe conscience, which is indeed, sir, a mender of bad soles.
      - Julius Caesar
         (Marcullus & Cobbler at I, i)
        [Shoemaking]

Speak, what trade art thou?
  Why, sir, a carpenter.
    Where is thy leather apron and thy rule?
      What does thou with thy best apparel on?
      - Julius Caesar
         (Flavius & Carpenter & Marullus at I, i)
        [Carpentry]

Beware the ides of March.
      - Julius Caesar (Soothsayer at I, ii)
        [March]

But ere we could arrive the point proposed,
  Caesar cried, 'Help me, Cassius, or I sink!'
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, ii) [Help]

But those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads; but for mine own part, if was Greek to me.
      - Julius Caesar (Casca at I, ii) [Linguists]

He had a fever when he was in Spain,
  And when the fit was on him, I did mark
    How he did shake. 'Tis true, this god did shake.
      His coward lips did from their color fly,
        And that same eye whose bend doth awe the world
          Did lose his luster.
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, ii)
        [Sickness]

I cannot tell what you and other men
  Think of this life; but for my single self,
    I had as lief not be as live to be
      In awe of such a thing as myself.
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, ii) [Life]

If it be aught toward the general good,
  Set honor in one eye and death i' th' other,
    And I will look on both indifferently;
      For let the gods so speed me as I love
        The name of honor more than I fear death.
      - Julius Caesar (Brutus at I, ii) [Choice]

If the tag-rag people did not clap him and hiss him, according as he pleased and displeased them. . . . I am no true man.
      - Julius Caesar (Casca at I, ii) [Proverbs]

Men at some time are masters of their fates.
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, ii)
        [Man : Proverbs]
