  4. 4. Juliet: 'Tis almost morning, I would have thee gone— And yet no farther than a wan-ton's bird, That lets it hop a little from his hand, Like a poor prisoner in his twisted gyves, And with a silken thread plucks it back again, So loving-jealous of his liberty. Romeo: I would I were thy bird. Juliet: Sweet, so would I, Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing. Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow. [Exit above] Click picture to watch movie preview Romeo And Juliet Act 2, scene 2, 176–185 End
  5. 5. Hamlet: To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep, No more; and by a sleep to say we end The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to: 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep; To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub: For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause—there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life. Hamlet Act 3, scene 1, 55–68 [Italics mine] Click picture to watch movie preview End
  6. 6. Othello: One more, one more. Be thus when thou art dead, and I will kill thee And love thee after. One more, and that's the last. So sweet was ne'er so fatal. I must weep, But they are cruel tears. This sorrow's heavenly, It strikes where it doth love. Othello Act 5, scene 2, 17–22 End
  7. 7. Lady Macbeth: Why did you bring these daggers from the place? They must lie there. Go carry them, and smear The sleepy grooms with blood. Macbeth: I'll go no more. I am afraid to think what I have done; Look on't again I dare not. Lady Macbeth: Infirm of purpose! Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead Are but as pictures; 'tis the eye of childhood That fears a painted devil. End Macbeth Act 2, scene 2, 45–52

  9. 9. 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. As You Like It Act 2, scene 7, 139–143 End
  10. 10. PET: You lie, in faith; for you are call'd plain Kate, And bonny Kate and sometimes Kate the curst; But Kate, the prettiest Kate in Christendom, Kate of Kate-hall, my super-dainty Kate, For dainties are all Kates, and therefore, Kate,(190) Take this of me, Kate of my consolation; Hearing thy mildness praised in every town, Thy virtues spoke of, and thy beauty sounded, Yet not so deeply as to thee belongs, Myself am moved to woo thee for my wife.(195) KAT: Moved! in good time: let him that moved you hither Remove you hence: I knew you at the first You were a moveable. Taming of the Shrew (II, i, 190) End
