Perdita

I bless the time When my good falcon

Read the Quote

Florizell
I bless the time
When my good falcon made her flight across
Thy father’s ground.
Perdita
Now Jove afford you cause.
To me the difference forges dread. Your greatness
Hath not been used to fear. Even now I tremble
To think your father by some accident
Should pass this way as you did. O the Fates,

welcome, sir.—
Give me those flowers there, Dorcas.—Reverend

Now, my fair’st friend,
I would I had some flowers o’ th’ spring, that might

Your maidenheads growing. O Proserpina,
For the flowers now that, frighted, thou let’st fall
From Dis’s wagon!

O, master, if you did but hear the peddler

Read the Quote

Servant
O, master, if you did but hear the peddler at
the door, you would never dance again after a tabor
and pipe; no, the bagpipe could not move you. He

Mark your divorce, young sir

Read the Quote

Polixenes, removing his disguise
Mark your divorce, young sir,
Whom son I dare not call. Thou art too base
To be acknowledged. Thou a scepter’s heir
That thus affects a sheep-hook!—Thou, old traitor,
I am sorry that by hanging thee I can
But shorten thy life one week.—And thou, fresh piece
Of excellent witchcraft,
