He that loves to be flattered is worthy o' the flatterer.
He hath always but slightly, known himself...King Lear.
Tis a commodity that will lose the gloss with lying; the longer kept, the less worth: off with 't, while 'tis vendible; answer the time of request. Virginity, like an old courtier, wears her cap out of fashion; richly suited, but unsuitable: just like the brooch and the toothpick, which wear not now.
But come what may, I do adore thee so That danger shall seem sport, and I will go!
He that drinks all night, and is hanged betimes in the morning, may sleep the sounder all the next day.
Love can be the greatest of dreams and the worst of nightmares.
