Let fame, that all hunt after in their lives,
  Live regist'red upon our brazen tombs
    And then grace us in the disgrace of death;
      When, spite of cormorant devouring Time,
        Th' endeavor of this present breath may buy
          That honor which shall bate his scythe's keen edge
            And make us heirs of all eternity.
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost

        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Roderigo at I, i)

Proceed, Solinus, to procure my fall,
  And by the doom of death end woes and all.

        We now present.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth

      Plead my successive title with your swords.
      - William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus
         (Saturninus at I, i)

If music be the food of love, play on,
  Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
    The appetite may sicken, and so die.
