There is no jesting with edge tools.
There is no man but may make his paradise.
There's a method in man's wickedness; it grows up by degrees.
'Tis godlike to have power, but not to kill.
We want a boy extremely for this function.
What is danger
More than the weakness of our apprehensions?
A poor cold part o' th' blood; who takes it hold of?
Cowards and wicked livers: valiant minds
Were made the masters of it.
Woman, they say, was only made of man;
Methinks 'tis strange they should be so unlike!
It may be all the best was cut away,
To make the woman, and the naught was left
Behind with him.
It shew'd discretion, the best part of valor.

- A King and No King (act IV, sc. 4)
He shall have chariots easier than air,
That I will have invented; . . . And thyself,
That art the messenger, shalt ride before him
On a horse cut out of an entire diamond.
That shall be made to go with golden wheels,
I know not how yet.

Under the gallow-tree.

And he that will to bed go sober,
Falls with the leaf still in October.
