Shakespeare in Plain English
Vexèd I am of late with passions of some difference, conceptions only proper to myself, which give some soil, perhaps, to my behaviors.
What dost thou with thy best apparel on?
And when the cross blue lightning seemed to open the breast of heaven, I did present myself even in the aim and very flash of it.
But life, being weary of these worldly bars, never lacks power to dismiss itself.
I will set this foot of mine as far as who goes farthest.
What watchful cares do interpose themselves betwixt your eyes and night?
Enjoy the honey-heavy dew of slumber.
Dear my lord, make me acquainted with your cause of grief.
I must prevent thee, Cimber.

I have o'ershot myself to tell you of it.
You'll bear me a bang for that, I fear.
Be content. Speak your griefs softly.
There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries.
The deep of night is crept upon our talk.
They come down with fearful bravery, thinking by this face to fasten in our thoughts that they have courage. But 'tis not so.

A peevish school boy, unworthy of such honor, joined with a masker and a reveler.
This day I breathèd first. Time is come round, and where I did begin, there shall I end. My life is run his compass.
He lies not like the living.
Piercing steel and darts envenomèd shall be as welcome to the ears of Brutus as tidings of this sight.
