Here is the second post of four with great quotes from the play, A Midsummer Nights Dream:

~~Since once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin's back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song,
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid's music. (2.1.149)

But I might see young Cupid's fiery shaft
Quenched in the chaste beams of the wat'ry moon,
And the imperial votaress passed on,
In maiden meditation, fancy-free.
Yet marked I where the bolt of Cupid fell:
It fell upon a little western flower,
Before milk-white, now purple with love's wound,
And maidens call it, Love-in-idleness. (2.1.161)

I'll put a girdle round about the earth
In forty minutes. (2.1.175)

I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania some time of the night,
Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight;
And there the snake throws her enamelled skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in. (2.1.249)

You spotted snakes with double tongue,
Thorny hedge-hogs, be not seen;
Newts, and blind-worms, do no wrong;
Come not near our fairy queen. (2.1.9)

Weaving spiders come not here;
Hence you long-legged spinners, hence!
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offence. (2.2.20)

God shield us!--a lion among ladies, is a most dreadful thing; for there is not a more fearful wild-fowl than your lion living. (3.1.32)

Look in the almanack; find out moonshine, find out moonshine. (3.1.55)

What hempen home-spuns have we swaggering here,
So near the cradle of the fairy queen? (3.1.82)

Bless thee, Bottom! bless thee! thou art translated. (3.1.124)

What angel wakes me from my flowery bed? (3.1.135)

Out of this wood do not desire to go. (3.1.159)

As wild geese that the creeping fowler eye,
Or russet-pated choughs, many in sort,
Rising and cawing at the gun's report,
Sever themselves, and madly sweep the sky;
So, at his sight, away his fellows fly. (3.2.20)
