Sometime we see a cloud that's dragonish;
  A vapour sometime like a bear or lion,
    A towered citadel, a pendant rock,
      A forked mountain, or blue promontory
        With trees upon't that nod unto the world,
          And mock our eyes with air. Thou hast seen these signs;
            They are black Vesper's pageants.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at IV, xiv)

Good sirs, take heart:
  We'll bury him; and, then, what's brave, what's noble,
    Let's do't after the high Roman fashion,
      And make death proud to take us.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at IV, xv)

I am dying, Egypt, dying.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Antony at IV, xv)

Bravest at the last,
  She levelled at our purposes, and being royal,
    Took her own way.
      - Antony and Cleopatra
         (Octavius Caesar at V, ii) [Suicide]

For his bounty,
  There was no winter in't: An autumn 'twas
    That grew the more by reaping: his delights
      Were dolphin-like, thy showed his back above
        The element they lived in: in his livery
          Walked crowns and crownets: realms and islands were
            As plates dropped from his pocket.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at V, ii)
        [Benevolence : Philanthropy]

Give me my robe, put on my crown, I have
  Immortal longings in me.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at V, ii)

His legs bestrid the ocean: his reared arm
  Crested the world: his voice was propertied
    As all the tuned spheres, and that to friends;
      But when he meant to quail and shake the orb,
        He was as rattling thunder.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at V, ii)

My desolation does begin to make
  A better life.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at V, ii)
        [Desolation : Reform]

My resolution's placed, and I have nothing
  Of woman in me: now from head to foot
    I am marble-constant: now the fleeting moon
      No planet is of mine.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at V, ii)
        [Constancy : Resolution]

Our army shall
  In solemn show attend this funeral,
    And then to Rome. Come, Dolabella, see
      High order in this great solemnity.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Caesar at V, ii)
        [Books (Last Lines)]

Prithee go hence,
  Or I shall show the cinders of my spirits
    Through th' ashes of my chance.
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at V, ii)

Shall they hoist me up
  And show me to the shouting varletry
    Of censuring Rome? Rather a ditch in Egypt
      Be gentle grave unto me! Rather on Nilus' mud
        Lay me stark-nak'd and let the waterflies
          Blow me into abhorring! Rather make
            My country's high pyramides my gibbet
              And hang me up in chains!
      - Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra at V, ii)

O, what a world is this, when what is comely,
  Envenoms him that bears it!
      - As You Like It [World]

If it be true that good wine needs no bush, 'tis true that a good play needs no epilogue.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at epilogue)

As I remember, Adam, it was upon this fashion bequeathed me by will but poor a thousand crowns, and, as thou say'st, charged my brother on his blessing to breed me well: and there begins my sadness.
      - As You Like It (Orlando at I, i)
        [Books (First Lines)]

(Celia:) Here come Monsieur Le Beau.
  (Rosalind:) With his mouth full of news.
    (Celia:) Which he will put on us as pigeons feed their young.
      (Rosalind:) Then shall we be news-crammed.
      - As You Like It (Celia & Rosalind at I, ii)
        [News : Pigeons]

(Celia:) Let us sit and mock the good housewife Fortune from her wheel, that her gifts may henceforth be bestowed equally.
  (Rosalind:) I would we could do so, for her benefits are mightily misplaced, and the bountiful blind woman doth most mistake in her gifts to women.
      - As You Like It (Celia & Rosalind at I, ii)

If I had a thunderbolt in mine eye, I can tell who should down.
      - As You Like It (Celia at I, ii) [Anger]

. . . that was laid on with a trowel.
      - As You Like It (Celia at I, ii)
        [Proverbial Phrases]

Beauty provoketh thieves sooner than gold.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at I, iii)

Her very silence, and her patience,
  Speak to the people, and they pity her.
      - As You Like It (Duke Frederick at I, iii)

O how full of briars is this working-day world.
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at I, iii)

O, how full of briers is this working-day world!
      - As You Like It (Rosalind at I, iii) [Work]

Turning these jests out of service, let us talk in good earnest.
      - As You Like It (Celia at I, iii)

We still have slept together,
  Rose at an instant, learned, played, eat together;
    And wheresoe'er we went, like Juno's swans,
      Still we went coupled and inseparable.
      - As You Like It (Celia at I, iii) [Friends]
