Thus in plain terms: your father hath consented
That you shall be my wife; your dowry 'greed on;
And, Will you, nill you, I will marry you.
[I.e. I will marry you, whether you like it or not.]

It's thought to be the origin of willy-nilly.

Helena:
Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind.


A Midsummer Night's Dream: Act 1, Scene 1

      HELENA
226   How happy some o'er other some can be!
227   Through Athens I am thought as fair as she.
228   But what of that? Demetrius thinks not so;
229   He will not know what all but he do know:
230   And as he errs, doting on Hermia's eyes,
231   So I, admiring of his qualities:
232   Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
233   Love can transpose to form and dignity:
234   Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind;
235   And therefore is wing'd Cupid painted blind:
236   Nor hath Love's mind of any judgement taste;
237   Wings and no eyes figure unheedy haste:
238   And therefore is Love said to be a child,
239   Because in choice he is so oft beguiled.
240   As waggish boys in game themselves forswear,
241   So the boy Love is perjured every where:
242   For ere Demetrius look'd on Hermia's eyne,
243   He hail'd down oaths that he was only mine;
244   And when this hail some heat from Hermia felt,
245   So he dissolved, and showers of oaths did melt.
246   I will go tell him of fair Hermia's flight:
247   Then to the wood will he tomorrow night
248   Pursue her; and for this intelligence
249   If I have thanks, it is a dear expense:
250   But herein mean I to enrich my pain,
251   To have his sight thither and back again.

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st.
     So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
     So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Murder: Macbeth

"I am one, my liege,
Whom the vile blows and buffets of the world
Have so incensed that I am reckless what
I do to spite the world."

Considering making this one into a bumper sticker for my car.




HELENA:A Midsummer Night’s Dream

"And even for that do I love you the more.
I am your spaniel. And, Demetrius,
The more you beat me, I will fawn on you.
Use me but as your spaniel—spurn me, strike me,
Neglect me, lose me. Only give me leave,
Unworthy as I am, to follow you.
What worser place can I beg in your love—
And yet a place of high respect with me—
Than to be usèd as you use your dog?"

heh, there is something deeply unsettling about seeing junior high students perform that last one.

By my troth, I care not. A man can die but once. We owe God
a death. I’ll ne'er bear a base mind. An ’t be my destiny, so;
an ’t be not, so.

“Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.”

I always loved the intro to Romeo & Juliet.

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms;
Then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lin'd,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well sav'd, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion;
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

There is special providence in the fall of a sparrow.
If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come,
it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come—the
readiness is all.

Arguably one of the best-known:

"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it."

The Cause & Effect of why Shakespeare is great:

- Shakespeare writes stuff,
- he's a good writer,
- they make movies of his life,
- 'Shakespeare in Love' has Gwyneth naked.

Feel free to quote me.

Nice! I saw a production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' this past summer by The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival. There are no finer actors than those that can deliver Shakespeare.
