Ay me, most wretched,
That have my heart parted betwixt two friends
That do afflict each other!
Octavia (Antony and Cleopatra, Act III scene vi)
What’s gone and what’s past help
Should be past grief.
Paulina (The Winter’s Tale, Act III scene ii)
When workmen strive to do better than well,
They do confound their skill in covetousness;
And oftentimes excusing of a fault
Doth make the fault the worse by the excuse,
As patches set upon a little breach
Discredit more in hiding of the fault
Than did the fault before it was so patch’d.
Pembroke (King John, Act IV scene ii)
Am I in earth, in heaven, or in hell?
Sleeping or waking? mad or well-advised?
Known unto these, and to myself disguised!
I’ll say as they say and persever so,
And in this mist at all adventures go.
Antipholus of Syracuse (The Comedy of Errors, Act II scene ii)


I bought an edition of Coriolanus at Red Letter Secondhand Books in Boulder!

It was published in 1886 and the cover and binding is in really good condition. I am very happy with the buy.

I am on a quest to buy a whole collection of Shakespeare’s plays but all of the plays from different collections.

I will persevere in
my course of loyalty, though the conflict be sore
between that and my blood.
Edmund (King Lear, Act III scene v)
O, when she’s angry, she is keen and shrewd!
She was a vixen when she went to school;
And though she be but little, she is fierce.
Helena (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act III scene ii)
And some that smile have in their hearts, I fear,
Millions of mischiefs.
Octavius (Julius Caesar, Act IV scene i)

Twelfth Night, Act II scene iii

  • Sir Toby Belch: ...Does not our life consist of the
  • four elements?
  • Sir Andrew: Faith, so they say; but I think it rather consists
  • of eating and drinking.
