  • If at home, sir, He’s all my exercise, my mirth, my matter: Now my sworn friend, and then mine enemy; My parasite, my soldier, statesman, all: He makes a July’s day short as December; And with his varying childness cures in me Thoughts that would thick my blood.

  • Thou dearest Perdita, With these forc’d thoughts, I pr’ythee, darken not The mirth o’ the feast: or I’ll be thine, my fair, Or not my father’s; for I cannot be Mine own, nor anything to any, if I be not thine: to this I am most constant, Though destiny say no. Be merry, gentle; Strangle such thoughts as these with any thing That you behold the while.
