Shakespeare in Plain English
My shame will hang upon my richest robes and show itself, attire me how I can.
How far your eyes may pierce I cannot tell; striving to better, oft we mar what's well.
I know thy constellation is right apt for this affair.
Peace! Peace, and give experience tongue.
It shall no longer grieve without reproof.
We have culled such necessaries as are behoveful for our state.
The night is fled, whose pitchy mantle overveiled the earth.
Yield not thy neck to Fortune's yoke, but let thy dauntless mind still ride in triumph over all mischance.
To my sick soul, each toy seems prologue to some great amiss.
'Twas a din to fright a monster's ear!
Novelty is only in request, and it is dangerous to be aged in any kind of course.
Pace your wisdom in that good path that I would wish it go.
I have elected him my absence to supply.
One sorrow never comes but brings an heir that may succeed as his inheritor.
I trust my absence doth neglect no great design which by my presence might have been concluded.
There's some conceit or other likes him well, when that he bids good morrow with such spirit.
Teach her the way.
I cry thee mercy. There is my purse to cure that blow of thine.
It strains me past the compass of my wits.
Prescribe not us our duty.
Haply my presence may well abate the over-merry spleen which otherwise would grow into extremes.
If you saw yourself with your eyes or knew yourself with your judgment, the fear of your adventure would counsel you to a more equal enterprise.
I have disabled mine estate by something showing a more swelling port than my faint means would grant continuance.
Pray thee, take pain to allay with some cold drops of modesty thy skipping spirit, lest through thy wild behaviour I be misconstered in the place I go to and lose my hopes.
