1

III,10,2067

Gods and goddesses,
All the whole synod of them!

2

III,10,2070

The greater cantle of the world is lost
With very ignorance; we have kiss'd away
Kingdoms and provinces.

3

III,10,2074

On our side like the token'd pestilence,
Where death is sure. Yon ribaudred nag of Egypt,—
Whom leprosy o'ertake!—i' the midst o' the fight,
When vantage like a pair of twins appear'd,
Both as the same, or rather ours the elder,
The breese upon her, like a cow in June,
Hoists sails and flies.

4

III,10,2084

She once being loof'd,
The noble ruin of her magic, Antony,
Claps on his sea-wing, and, like a doting mallard,
Leaving the fight in height, flies after her:
I never saw an action of such shame;
Experience, manhood, honour, ne'er before
Did violate so itself.

5

III,10,2101

'Tis easy to't; and there I will attend
What further comes.

6

IV,7,2760

O my brave emperor, this is fought indeed!
Had we done so at first, we had droven them home
With clouts about their heads.

7

IV,7,2764

I had a wound here that was like a T,
But now 'tis made an H.

8

IV,7,2767

We'll beat 'em into bench-holes: I have yet
Room for six scotches more.

9

IV,7,2772

Let us score their backs,
And snatch 'em up, as we take hares, behind:
'Tis sport to maul a runner.

10

IV,7,2778

I'll halt after.

11

IV,10,2883

For both, my lord.

12

IV,12,2904

Swallows have built
In Cleopatra's sails their nests: the augurers
Say they know not, they cannot tell; look grimly,
And dare not speak their knowledge. Antony
Is valiant, and dejected; and, by starts,
His fretted fortunes give him hope, and fear,
Of what he has, and has not.
