The oldest hath borne most; we that are young shall never see so much, nor live so long.
      - King Lear (Edgar at V, iii) [Aging]

The weight of this sad time we must obey,
  Speak what we feel not what we ought to say.
    The oldest hath borne most; we that are young
      Shall never see so much, nor live so long.
      - King Lear (Edgar at V, iii)
        [Books (Last Lines)]

The wheel is come full circle.
      - King Lear (Edmund at V, iii) [Repetition]

Vex not his ghost. O, let him pass! He hates him
  That would upon the rack of this tough world
    Stretch him out longer.
      - King Lear (Kent at V, iii) [Punishment]

Whilst I was big in clamor, came there in a man,
  Who, having seen me in my worst estate,
    Shunned my abhorred society; but then, finding
      Who 'twas that so endured, with his strong arms
        He fastened on my neck, and bellowed out
          As he'd burst heaven, threw him on my father,
            Told the most piteous tale of Lear and him
              That ever ear received; which in recounting
                His grief puissant, and the strings of life
                  Began to crack.
      - King Lear (Edgar at V, iii) [Society]

I will go root away
  The noisome weeds which without profit suck
    The soil's fertility from wholesome flowers.
      - King Richard II [Weeds]

Thou art a traitor, and a miscreant;
  Too good to be so, and too bad to live.
      - King Richard II [Treason]

Oh, I have passed a miserable night, so full of ugly sights, of ghastly dreams!
      - King Richard III [Ugliness]

The world is grown so bad,
  That wrens make prey where eagles dare not perch.
      - King Richard III [World]

So wise so young, they say, do never live long.
      - King Richard III (III, iii) [Death]

Wise men ne'er sit and wail their woes, but presently prevent the ways to wail.
      - King Richard the II [Woe]

Mad world! Mad kings! Mad composition!
      - Life and Death of King John
         (Bastard at II, i) [World]

'with a child of our grandmother Eve, a female; or, for thy more sweet understanding, a woman....'
      - Love's Labor Lost
         (Ferdinand, King of Navarre at I,i)

They are the books, the arts, the academies, that show, contain, and nourish all the world.
      - Love's Labor's Lost [Women]

A high hope for a low heaven. God grant us patience!
      - Love's Labor's Lost (Longaville at I, i)

At Christmas I no more desire a rose,
  Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled shows;
    But like of each thing that in season grows.
      - Love's Labor's Lost (Berowne at I, i)

(Berowne:) What is the end of study, let me know?
  (King:) What, that to know which else we should not know.
    (Berowne:) Things hid and barred, you mean, from common sense?
      (King:) Ay, that is study's godlike recompense.
      - Love's Labor's Lost
         (Berowne & King Ferdinand at I, i)

Come on then, I will swear to study so,
  To know the thing I am forbid to know:
    As thus--to study where I well may dine
      When I to feast expressly am forbid;
        Or study where to meet some mistress fine
          When mistresses from common sense are hid;
            Or having sworn too hard-a-keeping oath,
              Study to break it and not break my troth.
      - Love's Labor's Lost (Berowne at I, i)

Fat paunches have lean pates, and dainty bits
  Make rich the ribs, but backrout quite the wits.
      - Love's Labor's Lost (Longaville at I, i)

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.
      - Love's Labor's Lost (King at I, i)
        [Books (First Lines) : Fame]

Light seeking light doth light of light beguile;
  So, ere you find where light in darkness lies,
    Your light grows dark by losing of your eyes.
      - Love's Labor's Lost (Berowne at I, i)

Our court you know is haunted
  With a refined traveller of Spain,
    A man in all the world's new fashion planted,
      That hath a mint of phrases in his brain;
        One who the music of his own vain tongue
          Doth ravish like enchanting harmony;
            A man of complements, whom right and wrong
              Have chose as umpire of their mutiny.
      - Love's Labor's Lost
         (Ferdinand, King of Navarre at I, i)
        [Eloquence : Music]

So study evermore is overshot.
  While it doth study to have what it would,
    It doth forget to do the thing it should;
      And when it hath the thing it hunteth most,
        'Tis won as towns with fire; so won, so lost.
      - Love's Labor's Lost (Berowne at I, i)

Study is like the heaven's glorious sun,
  That will not be deep-searched with saucy looks:
    Small have continual plodders ever won,
      Save base authority from others' books.
      - Love's Labor's Lost (Berowne at I, i)

Therefore, brave conquerors--for so you are
  That war against your own affections
    And the huge army of the world's desires--
      Our late edict shall strongly stand in force:
        Navarre shall be the wonder of the world;
          Our court shall be a little academe,
            Still and contemplative in living art.
      - Love's Labor's Lost
         (Ferdinand, King of Navarre at I, i)
