I,1,34

I have great comfort from this fellow: methinks he
hath no drowning mark upon him; his complexion is...

4

I,1,55

I'll warrant him for drowning; though the ship were
no stronger than a nutshell and as leaky as an...

5

I,1,63

The king and prince at prayers! let's assist them,
For our case is as theirs.

6

I,1,69

He'll be hang'd yet,

7

I,1,79

Now would I give a thousand furlongs of sea for an
acre of barren ground, long heath, brown furze, any...

8

II,1,706

Beseech you, sir, be merry; you have cause,
So have we all, of joy; for our escape...

9

II,1,720

Sir,—

10

II,1,722

When every grief is entertain'd that's offer'd,
Comes to the entertainer—

11

II,1,725

Dolour comes to him, indeed: you
have spoken truer than you purposed.

12

II,1,728

Therefore, my lord,—

13

II,1,731

Well, I have done: but yet,—

14

II,1,753

Here is everything advantageous to life.

15

II,1,756

How lush and lusty the grass looks! how green!

16

II,1,761

But the rarity of it is,—which is indeed almost
beyond credit,—

17

II,1,764

That our garments, being, as they were, drenched in
the sea, hold notwithstanding their freshness and...

II,1,771

Methinks our garments are now as fresh as when we
put them on first in Afric, at the marriage of...

II,1,777

Not since widow Dido's time.

20

This Tunis, sir, was Carthage.

21

II,1,786

Ay.

23

II,1,796

Sir, we were talking that our garments seem now
as fresh as when we were at Tunis at the marriage...

24

II,1,802

Is not, sir, my doublet as fresh as the first day I
wore it? I mean, in a sort.

25

II,1,805

When I wore it at your daughter's marriage?

26

II,1,841

My lord Sebastian,
The truth you speak doth lack some gentleness...

27

II,1,847

It is foul weather in us all, good sir,
When you are cloudy.

28

II,1,851

Had I plantation of this isle, my lord,—

29

II,1,854

And were the king on't, what would I do?

30

II,1,856

I' the commonwealth I would by contraries
Execute all things; for no kind of traffic...

31

II,1,869

All things in common nature should produce
Without sweat or endeavour: treason, felony,...

32

I would with such perfection govern, sir,
To excel the golden age.

II,1,881

II,1,883

I do well believe your highness; and
did it to minister occasion to these gentlemen,...

35

II,1,888

Who in this kind of merry fooling am nothing
to you: so you may continue and laugh at...

36

II,1,893

You are gentlemen of brave metal; you would lift
the moon out of her sphere, if she would continue...

37

II,1,899

No, I warrant you; I will not adventure
my discretion so weakly. Will you laugh...

38

II,1,1051

Now, good angels
Preserve the king.

39

II,1,1056

What's the matter?

40

II,1,1066

Upon mine honour, sir, I heard a humming,
And that a strange one too, which did awake me:...

41

II,1,1074

Heavens keep him from these beasts!
For he is, sure, i' the island.

42

III,3,1554

By'r lakin, I can go no further, sir;
My old bones ache: here's a maze trod indeed...

43

III,3,1578

Like poison given to work a great time after,...

All torment, trouble, wonder and amazement
Inhabits here: some heavenly power guide us...

49

V,1,2157

Whether this be
Or be not, I'll not swear.

50

V,1,2257

Or should have spoke ere this. Look down, you god,...
