Why, what a monstrous fellow art thou, thus to rail
on one that is neither known of thee nor knows thee!
Oswald (King Lear, Act II scene ii)
Into what dangers would you lead me, Cassius,
That you would have me seek into myself
For that which is not in me?
Brutus (Julius Caesar, Act I scene ii)

Much Ado About Nothing, Act III scene iv

  • Hero: Why how now? do you speak in the sick tune?
  • Beatrice: I am out of all other tune, methinks.

O, but they say the tongues of dying men
Enforce attention like deep harmony:
Where words are scarce, they are seldom spent in vain,
For they breathe truth that breathe their words in pain.
Gaunt (Richard II, Act II scene i)

I never thought it possible or likely;
But see, while idly I stood looking on,
I found the effect of love in idleness.
Lucentio (The Taming of the Shrew, Act I scene i)
Can you post a quote from The Taming of the Shrew?? 😊
asked by Anonymous

Would love to! I’ll be sure to make tomorrow’s quote a Taming of the Shrew one. 

O melancholy!
Who ever yet could sound thy bottom? find
The ooze, to show what coast thy sluggish crare
Might easiliest harbour in? Thou blessed thing!
Jove knows what man thou mightst have made; but I,
Thou diedst, a most rare boy, of melancholy.
Belarius (Cymbeline, Act IV scene ii)
