Orsino: "O, when mine eyes did see Olivia first,
Methought she purged the air of pestilence;
That instant was I turned into a hart,
And my desires, like fell and cruel hounds,
E'er since pursue me.  How now!  What news from her?"


Viola:  "Know'st thou this country?"

Captain:  "Ay, madam, well; for I was bred and born
Not three hours' travel from this very place."

Viola:  "Who governs here?"

Captain:  "A noble duke, in nature as in name."

Viola:  "What is his name?"

Captain:  "Orsino."

Olivia:  "What think you of this fool, Malvolio?  Doth he not mend?"

Malvolio:  "Yes; and shall do till the pangs of death shake him; infirmity, that decays the wise, doth ever make the better fool."

Feste:  "God send you, sir, a speedy infirmity, for the better increasing your folly!  Sir Toby will be sworn that I am no fox, but he will not pass his word for two pence that you are no fool."

Sir Toby:  "How now, sot!

Feste:  "Good Sir Toby!"

Olivia:  "Cousin, cousin, how have you come so early by this lethargy?"

Sir Toby:  "Lechery?  I defy lechery!"

Maria:  "Will you hoist sail, sir? here lies your way."


Olivia:  "'What is your parentage?'
'Above my fortunes, yet my state is well;
I am a gentleman.'  I'll be sworn thou art;
Thy tongue, thy face, thy limbs, actions, and spirit,
Do give thee five-fold blazon.  Not too fast; soft! soft!--
Unless the master were the man.  Now now!
Even so quickly may one catch the plague?
Methinks I feel this youth's perfections,
With an invisible and subtle stealth
To creep in at mine eyes. Well, let it be."

Antonio:  "Will you stay no longer, nor will you not that I go with you?"

Sebastian:  "By your patience, no.  My stars shine darkly over me; the malignancy of my fate might, perhaps, distemper yours; therefore I shall crave of you your leave that I may bear my evils alone.  It were a bad recompense for your love, to lay any of them on you."


Feste (singing):
'O mistress mine! where are you roaming?
O stay and hear! your true love's coming,
That can sing both high and low.
Trip no further, pretty sweeting;
Journeys end in lovers meeting,
Every wise man's son doth know.

Viola (as Cesario):  "But if she cannot love you, sir?"

Orsino:  "I cannot be so answered."

Viola:  "Sooth, but you must.
Say that some lady, as perhaps there is,
Hath for your love as great a pang of heart
As you have for Olivia; you cannot love her;
You tell her so; must she not then be answered?"

Olivia:  "Let the garden door be shut, and leave me to my hearing."

Maria:  "He's in yellow!"

Olivia:  "Smilest thou?  I sent for thee upon a sad occasion."

Malvolio: "Sad, lady!  I could be sad; this does some obstruction in the blood, this cross-gartering; but what of that?  If it please the eye of one, it is with me as the very true sonnet is, 'Please one, and please all'".

Sir Toby:  "Prithee, hold thy peace; this is not the way; do you not see you move him?  Let me alone with him."

Sir Toby:  "If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction."

Antonio:  "Let me speak a little.  This youth that you see here
I snatched one-half out of the jaws of death,
Relieved him with such sanctity of life,
And to his image, which methought did promise
Most venerable worth, did I devotion."

Viola (as Cesario)
"Methinks his words do from such passion fly,
That he believes himself; so do not I?
Prove true, imagination.  O! prove true.
That I, dear brother, be now ta'en for you.
He named Sebastian; I my brother know
Yet living in my glass; even such and so
In favour was my brother; and he went
Still in this fashion, colour, ornament,
For him I imitate.  O! if it prove,
Tempests are kind, and salt waves fresh in love."

Sebastian:  "What relish is this?  How runs this stream?
Or I am mad, or else it is a dream.
Let fancy still my sense in Lethe steep;
If it be thus to dream, still let me sleep!"

Feste (as Sir Topas):  "Sayest thou this house is dark?"

Malvolio:  "As hell, Reverend Topas."

Feste:  "Why, it hath bay windows transparent as barricades, and the skylights toward the south-north are as lustrous as ebony; and yet complainest thou of obstruction?"




Olivia:  "Who hath made this havoc with them?"

Sebastian: "Do I stand there?  I never had a brother;
Nor can there be that deity in my nature,
Of here and everywhere.  I had a sister,
Whom the blind waves and surges have devoured.
Of charity, what kin are you to me?
What countryman, what name, what parentage?"

Feste (singing)
"A great while ago the world began,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain;
But that's all one, our play is done,
And we'll strive to please you every day."
