All of Shakespeare’s plays.
Sir Valentine, I care not for her, I;
I hold him but a fool that will endanger
His body for a girl that loves him not:
I claim her not, and therefore she is thine.
Yonder is Silvia; and Silvia's mine.
Why, this it is to be a peevish girl,
That flies her fortune when it follows her.
I'll after, more to be revenged on Eglamour
Than for the love of reckless Silvia.
Considers she my possessions?
What says she to my birth?
What says she to my valour?
But well, when I discourse of love and peace?
How likes she my discourse?
Nay then, the wanton lies; my face is black.
What says she to my face?
I'll wear a boot, to make it somewhat rounder.
What, that my leg is too long?
Sir Proteus, what says Silvia to my suit?
Where meet we?
I thank you for your own. Now, gentlemen,
Let's tune, and to it lustily awhile.
Ay, but I hope, sir, that you love not here.
How now, Sir Proteus, are you crept before us?
And thy advice this night I'll put in practise.
Therefore, sweet Proteus, my direction-giver,
Let us into the city presently
To sort some gentlemen well skill'd in music.
I have a sonnet that will serve the turn
To give the onset to thy good advice.
Therefore, as you unwind her love from him,
Lest it should ravel and be good to none,
You must provide to bottom it on me;
Which must be done by praising me as much
As you in worth dispraise Sir Valentine.
Since his exile she hath despised me most,
Forsworn my company and rail'd at me,
That I am desperate of obtaining her.
Madam, my lord your father would speak with you.
They say that Love hath not an eye at all.
Sir, if you spend word for word with me, I shall
make your wit bankrupt.
Ay, sir, and done too, for this time.
That hath more mind to feed on your blood than live
in your air.
My jerkin is a doublet.
And how quote you my folly?
What instance of the contrary?
What seem I that I am not?
So do counterfeits.
Seem you that you are not?
