Is it not strange that desire should so many years outlive performance?

(Henry VI Part 2, II:4)


The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.

(The Merchant of Venice, I:3)


Good name, in man, in woman, dear my lord,

Is the immediate jewel of their souls:

Who steals my purse, steals trash: ’tis something, nothing;

’T was mine, ’t is his, and has been slave to thousands;

But he that filches from me my good name,

Robs me of that, which not enriches him,

And makes me poor indeed.

(Othello, III:3)
