The Duchess of Malfi
Sometimes the devil doth preach.1.2.246-247:
The marriage night / Is the entrance into some prison.2.1.102-111:
Say you were lineally descended from King Pippin, or he himself, what of this? Search the heads of the greatest rivers in the world, you shall find them but bubbles of water. Some would think the souls of princes were brought forth by some more weighty cause than those of meaner persons: they are deceiv'd, there's the same hand to them; the like passions sway them; the same reason that makes a vicar go to law for a tithe-pig, and undo his neighbours, makes them spoil a whole province, and batter down goodly cities with the cannon.2.3.7-9:
It may be 'twas the melancholy bird,3.5.65-68:
Best friend of silence, and of solitariness,
The owl, that scream'd so.
Thou art happy, that thou hast not understanding4.2.219-222:
To know thy misery. For all our wit
And reading brings us to a truer sense
I know death hath ten thousand several doors4.2.268-269:
For men to take their exits: and 'tis found
They go on such strange geometrical hinges,
You may open them both ways.
Kindred commonly do worse agree5.2.29-31:
Than remote strangers.
MALATESTE: Why doth your lordship love this solitariness?5.2.284-295:
FERDINAND: Eagles commonly fly alone. They are crows,
Daws, and starlings that flock together.
And wherefore should you lay your fair marble colours5.3.9-11:
Upon your rotten purposes to me?
I do love these ancient ruins:5.3.46-47:
We never tread upon them, but we set
Our foot upon some reverend history.
For to live thus, is not indeed to live:
It is a mockery, and abuse of life.
