Great quotes from A Midsummer Nights Dream July 9, 2015 12:00 AM | Tagged as A Midsummer Nights Dream, Christian Bale, Kevin Kline, Shakespeare Jewelry, Sterling sliver charms

A Midsummer Night's Dream has so many gret quotes that I will be breaking them into 4 separate posts.  Here is the first of the four.  Enjoy! 

Ay me! for aught that ever I could read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth. (1.1.132)

O, hell! to choose love by another’s eyes. (1.1.140)

If there were a sympathy in choice,
War, death, or sickness did lay siege to it,
Making it momentany as a sound,
Swift as a shadow, short as any dream,
Brief as the lightning in the collied night,
That, in a spleen, unfolds both heaven and earth,
And ere a man hath power to say, 'Behold!'
The jaws of darkness do devour it up:
So quick bright things come to confusion. (1.1.141)

Your eyes are lodestars! and your tongue's sweet air
More tuneable than lark to shepherd's ear,
When wheat is green, when hawthorn buds appear. (1.1.183)

How happy some o'er other some can be!
Through Athens I am thought as fair as she;
But what of that? Demetrius thinks not so;
He will not know what all but he do know;
And as he errs, doting on Helen's eyes,
So I, admiring of his qualities.
Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
Love can transpose to form and dignity.
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind. (1.1.226)

The most lamentable comedy, and most cruel death of Pyramus and Thisby. (1.2.11)

Masters, spread yourselves. (1.2.16)

I could play Ercles rarely, or a part to tear a cat in, to make all split. (1.2.31)

This is Ercles' vein, a tyrant's vein. (1.2.43)

Nay, faith, let me not play a woman; I have a beard coming. (1.2.50)

I will roar you as gently as any sucking dove; I will roar you as 'twere any nightingale. (1.2.85)

Pyramus is a sweet-faced man; a proper man, as one shall see in a summer's day. (1.2.89)

Hold, or cut bow-strings. (1.2.115)
Puck. How now, spirit! whither wander you?
fairy Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moone's sphere;
And I serve the fairy queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green:
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours,
In those freckles live their savours:
I must go seek some dew-drops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear. (2.1.1)

The wisest aunt, telling the saddest tale,
Sometime for three-foot stool mistaketh me;
Then slip I from her bum, down topples she,
And 'tailor' cries, and falls into a cough;
And then the whole quire hold their hips and loff. (2.1.51)

Ill met by moonlight, proud Titania. (2.1.60)

The fold stands empty in the drownèd field,
And crows are fatted with the murrion flock;
The nine men's morris is filled up with mud. (2.1.96)

Therefore the moon, the governess of floods,
Pale in her anger, washes all the air,
That rheumatic diseases do abound:
And thorough this distemperature we see
The seasons alter: hoary-headed frosts
Fall in the fresh lap of the crimson rose. (2.1.103)
