Literary Quotes

William Shakespeare

King Lear:

  • Have more than thou showest,
    Speak less than thou knowest,
    Lend less than thou owest,
    Ride more than thou goest,
    Learn more than thou trowest,
    Set less than thou throwest;
    Leave thy drink and thy whore,
    And keep in-a-door,
    And thou shall have more
    Than two tens to a score. 
    (The Fool)
  • The hedge sparrow fed the cuckoo so long,
    That it had it head bit off by it young.
    (The Fool)
  • Fortune, good-night: smile once more; turn thy wheel!
  • That sir which serves and seeks for gain,
    And follows but for form,
    Will pack when it begins to rain,
    And leave thee in the storm.
    But I will tarry; the fool will stay,
    And let the wise man fly:
    The knave turns fool that runs away;
    The fool, no knave, perdy.
    (The Fool)
  • Our basest beggars
    Are in the poorest thing superfluous:
    Allow not nature more than nature needs,
    Man's life is cheap as beast's.
  • You see me here, you gods, a poor old man,
    As full of grief as age; wretched in both!
    If it be you that stir these daughters' hearts
    Against their father, fool me not so much
    To bear it tamely; touch me with noble anger,
    And let not women's weapons, water-drops,
    Stain my man's cheeks!
  • The art of our necessities is strange,
    And can make vile things precious.
  • He that has and a little tiny wit,
    With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
    Must make content with his fortunes fit,
    Though the rain it raineth every day.
    (The Fool)
  • He's mad, that trusts in the tameness of a wolf, a horse's health, a boy's love, or a whore's oath.
    (The Fool)
  • As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods, —
    They kill us for their sport.
  • You are not worth the dust which the rude wind
    Blows in your face.
  • Wisdom and goodness to the vile seem vile:
    Filths savour but themselves.
  • When we are born, we cry that we are come
    To this great stage of fools — This' a good block: —
    It were a delicate strategem to shoe
    A troop of horse with felt: I'll put 't in proof;
    And when I have stol'n upon these sons-in-law,
    Then kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill!
  • 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.
