Great Quotes from a Fun Play! September 19, 2012 12:00 AM | Tagged as Gershwin, Kenneth Brannagh, Love's Labour's Lost, musical
Love’s Labour’s Lost is such an entertaining play with many great quotes. Here are a few to get you interested: 
Our court shall be a little Academe,
Still and contemplative in living art. (1.1.13)
These are barren tasks, too hard to keep,
Not to see ladies, study, fast, not sleep! (1.1.48)
Painfully to pore upon a book
To seek the light of truth; while truth the while
Doth falsely blind the eyesight of his look. (1.1.73)
Can you tell Berowne is not as excited about this prospect as the other 3 “students”? This next one is a great one to use on a child who doesn’t feel like studying: 
Study is like the heaven's glorious sun,
That will not be deep-searched with saucy looks;
Small have continual plodders ever won,
Save base authority from others' books.
These earthly godfathers of Heaven's lights
That give a name to every fixed star,
Have no more profit of their shining nights
Than those that walk and wot not what they are. (1.1.84)
Here are a few other gems: 
How well he's read, to reason against reading! (1.1.94)
At Christmas I no more desire a rose
Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth;
But like of each thing that in season grows. (1.1.105)
A man in all the world’s new fashion planted,
That hath a mint of phrases in his brain. (1.1.164)
Fashion's own knight. (1.1.176)
Assist me some extemporal god of rime, for I am sure I shall turn sonneter.
Devise, wit; write, pen; for I am for whole volumes in folio. (1.2.192)
The best one of this batch is this next one. Do you have a daughter that feels she needs to buy things in order to be pretty? Here is a great quote for her: 
Beauty is bought by judgment of the eye,
Not uttered (*offered)by base sale of chapmen's(*merchants) tongues. (2.1.15)                                    
*definition reference from the Folger Shakespeare version of the play
