      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Beatrice at IV, i)

My lord shall never rest;
  I'll watch him tame and talk him out of patience;
    His bed shall seem a school, his board a shrift;
      I'll intermingle everything he does
        With Cassio's suit.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Desdemona at III, iii)

  With this abundance of superfluous breath?

  I had it from my father.

  In their fair cheeks, my lord; then we shall have 'em
    Talk us to silence.

No, pray thee, let it serve for table-talk;
  Then howsome'er thou speak'st, 'mong other things
    I shall digest it.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Lorenzo at III, v)

Tut, tut, my lord! we will not stand to prate;
  Talkers are no good doers. Be assured:
    We go to use our hands, and not our tongues.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (First Murderer at I, iii)

She sits tormenting every guest,
  Nor gives her tongue one moment's rest,
    In phrases batter'd, stale, and trite,
      Which modern ladies call polite.
      - Jonathan Swift,
        The Journal of a Modern Lady
