quotes

Quote 1: "Till he faced the slave;/

Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him,/

Till he unseamed him from the nave to th' chops,/

And fixed his head upon our battlements."

Quote 2: "Let not light see my black and deep desires./

The eye wink at the hand, yet let that be/

Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see."

Quote 3: "Look like the time. Bear welcome in your eye,/

Your hand, your tongue. Look like th' innocent flower,/

But be the serpent under ’t. "

Quote 4: "The prince of Cumberland! That is a step/

On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap,/

For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires;/

Let not light see my black and deep desires./

The eye wink at the hand, yet let that be/

Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see."
