For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground/And tell sad stories of the death of kings.
As an arrow shot/From a well-experienc’d archer hits the mark/His eye doth level at.
Hung be the heavens with black, yield day to night!
We have heard the chimes at midnight.

To unpathed waters, undreamed shores.
How use doth breed a habit in a man!

The eagle suffers little birds to sing.
All the world ’s a stage,/And all the men and women merely players.

His nature is too noble for the world:/He would not flatter Neptune for his trident,/Or Jove for ’s power to thunder.
A young man married is a man that ’s marr’d
Golden lads and girls all must,/As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.
Now is the winter of our discontent/Made glorious summer by this sun of York
Had I but served my God with half the zeal/I served my king, he would not in mine age/Have left me naked to mine enemies.
A plague o’ both your houses!
O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend/The brightest heaven of invention!
If music be the food of love, play on
