These words are razors to my wounded heart.
      - Titus Andronicus (Titus at I, i) [Words]

Titus Andronicus, for thy favors done
  To us in our election this day
    I give thee thanks in part of thy deserts,
      And will with deeds requite thy gentleness:
        And for an onset, Titus, to advance
          Thy name and honorable family,
            Lavinia will I make my emperess,
              Rome's royal mistress, mistress of my heart,
                And in the sacred Pantheon her espouse.
                  Tell me, Andronicus, doth this motion please thee?
      - Titus Andronicus (Saturninus at I, i)
        [Deeds]

Wilt thou draw near the nature of the gods?
  Draw near them then in being merciful.
    Sweet mercy is nobility's true badge:
      Thrice-noble Titus, spare my first-born son.
      - Titus Andronicus (Tamora at I, i) [Gods]

As when the golden sun salutes the morn,
  And having gilt the ocean with his beams,
    Gallops the zodiac in his glistering coach
      And overlooks the highest-peering hills,
        So Tamora.
      - Titus Andronicus (Aaron at II, i)
        [Morning : Sunrise]

Foul-spoken coward, that thunder'st with thy tongue,
  And with thy weapon nothing dar'st perform.
      - Titus Andronicus (Chiron at II, i)
        [Proverbs]

She is a woman, therefore may be wooed;
  She is a woman, therefore may be won;
    She is Lavinia, therefore must be loved.
      - Titus Andronicus (Demetrius at II, i)
        [Wooing]

What, man! more water glideth by the mill
  That wots the miller of; and easy it is
    Of a cut loaf to steal a shive, we know:
      Though Bassianus be the emperor's brother,
        Better then he have worn Vulcan's badge.
      - Titus Andronicus (Demetrius at II, i)
        [Water]

The birds chaunt melody on every bush,
  The snake lies rolled in the cheerful sun,
    The green leaves quiver with the cooling wind,
      And make a checkered shadow on the ground;
        Under their sweet shade, Aaron, let us sit,
          And whilst the babbling echo mocks the hounds,
            Replying shrilly to the well-tuned horns,
              As if a double hunt were heard at once,
                Let us sit down and mark their yellowing noise;
                  And after conflict such as was supposed
                    The wand'ring prince and Dido once enjoyed,
                      When with a happy storm they were surprised,
                        And curtained with a counsel-keeping cave,
                          We may, each wreathed in the other's arms,
                            Our pastimes done, possess a golden slumber,
                              Whiles hounds and horns and sweet melodious birds
                                Be unto us as is a nurse's song
                                  Of lullaby to bring her babe asleep.
      - Titus Andronicus (Tamora at II, iii)
        [Echo : Shadows]

These two have ticed me hither to this place,
  A barren detested vale you see it is;
    The trees, though summer, yet forlorn and lean,
      Overcome with moss and baleful mistletoe.
      - Titus Andronicus (Tamora at II, iii)
        [Trees]

Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand,
  Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.
      - Titus Andronicus (Aaron at II, iii)
        [Revenge]

O, had the monster seen those lily hands
  Tremble like aspen leafs upon a lute
    And make the silken strings delight to kiss them,
      He would not then have touched them for his life.
      - Titus Andronicus (Marcus at II, iv)
        [Aspen]

Sorrow concealed, like an oven stopp'd,
  Doth burn the heart to cinders, where it is.
      - Titus Andronicus (Marcus at II, iv)
        [Proverbs : Sorrow]

These two have ticed me hither to this place,
  A barren detested vale you see it is;
    The trees, though summer, yet forlorn and lean,
      Overcome with moss and baleful mistletoe.
      - Titus Andronicus (Tamora at II,iii)
        [Trees]

Did ever raven sing so like a lark
  That gives sweet tidings of the sun's uprise?
      - Titus Andronicus (Titus at III, i)
        [Ravens]

O brother, speak with possibility,
  And do not break into these deep extremes.
      - Titus Andronicus (Marcus at III, i)
        [Extremes]

To weep with them that weep doth ease some deal;
  But sorrow flouted at is double death.
      - Titus Andronicus (Marcus at III, i)
        [Sorrow]

When I did name her brothers, then fresh tears
  Stood on her cheeks, as doth the honeydew
    Upon a gath'red lily almost withered.
      - Titus Andronicus (Titus at III, i) [Tears]

Alas, poor man! Grief has so wrought on him
  He takes false shadows for true substances.
      - Titus Andronicus (Marcus at III, ii)
        [Grief]

Some book there is that she desires to see.
  Which is it, girl, of these? Open them, boy.
    But thou art deeper read and better skilled:
      Come and take choice of all my library,
        And so beguile thy sorrow, till the heavens
          Reveal the damned contriver of this deed.
      - Titus Andronicus (Titus at IV, i)
        [Libraries]

Coal-black is better than another hue
  In that it scorns to bear another hue;
    For all the water in the ocean
      Can never turn the swan's black legs to white,
        Although she lave them hourly in the flood.
      - Titus Andronicus (Aaron at IV, ii) [Swans]

Now to the Goths, as swift as swallow flies,
  There to dispose this treasure in mine arms
    And secretly to greet the empress's friends.
      - Titus Andronicus (Aaron at IV, ii)
        [Swallows]

The empress, the midwife, and yourself:
  Two may keep counsel when the third's away.
    Go to the empress, tell her this I said.
      - Titus Andronicus (Aaron at IV, ii)
        [Secrecy]

Weeke, weeke!
  So cries a pig prepared to the spit.
      - Titus Andronicus (Aaron at IV, ii)
        [Cookery]

Is the sun dimmed, that gnats do fly in it?
      - Titus Andronicus (Tamora at IV, iv)
        [Proverbs]

The eagle suffers little birds to sing,
  And is not careful what they mean thereby,
    Knowing that with the shadow of his wings
      He can at pleasure stint their melody:
        Even so mayest thou the giddy men of Rome.
      - Titus Andronicus (Tamora at IV, iv)
        [Eagles : Proverbs]
