Page 62 - And Caesar's spirit ranging for revenge, With Ate by his side come hot from hell, Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice Cry ' Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war ; That this foul deed shall smell above the earth With carrion men, groaning for burial.
Page 389 - No, it was builded far from accident; It suffers not in smiling pomp, nor falls Under the blow of thralled discontent, Whereto the inviting time our fashion calls: It fears not policy, that heretic, Which works on leases of short-number'd hours. But all alone stands hugely politic, That it nor grows with heat nor drowns with showers...
Page 392 - Take but degree away, untune that string, And, hark! what discord follows; each thing meets In mere oppugnancy: the bounded waters Should lift their bosoms higher than the shores, And make a sop of all this solid globe: Strength should be lord of imbecility And the rude son should strike his father dead: Force should be right; or rather right and wrong Between whose endless jar justice resides Should lose their names, and so should justice too.
Page 62 - O mighty Caesar! dost thou lie so low? Are all thy conquests, glories, triumphs, spoils, Shrunk to this little measure?
Page 63 - If thou art rich, thou art poor ; For, like an ass whose back with ingots bows, Thou bear'st thy heavy riches but a journey, And death unloads thee.
Page 392 - God! that one might read the book of fate, And see the revolution of the times Make mountains level, and the continent, Weary of solid firmness, melt itself Into the sea! and, other times, to see The beachy girdle of the ocean Too wide for Neptune's hips; how chances mock, And changes fill the cup of alteration With divers liquors!
Page 96 - For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Page 50 - Friendship is constant in all other things Save in the office and affairs of love : Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues ; Let every eye negotiate for itself, And trust no agent; for beanty is a witch, Against whose charms faith melteth into blood.
Page 16 - Geh deinen unmerklichen Schritt, ewige Vorsehung! Nur laß mich dieser Unmerklichkeit wegen an dir nicht verzweifeln! — Laß mich an dir nicht verzweifeln, wenn selbst deine Schritte mir scheinen sollten zurückzugehen! - Es ist nicht wahr, daß die kürzeste Linie immer die gerade ist.
Page 1 - Ich habe vor vielen Jahren einmal ein Schauspiel entworfen, dessen Inhalt eine Art von Analogie mit meinen gegenwärtigen Streitigkeiten hat, die ich mir damals wohl nicht träumen ließ.
