Timon of Athens.
 
 
1
    But flies an eagle flight, bold and forth on,
Leaving no tract behind.
          Timon of Athens. Act i. Sc. 1.
2
    Here ’s that which is too weak to be a sinner,—honest water, which ne’er left man i’ the mire.
          Timon of Athens. Act i. Sc. 2.
3
    Immortal gods, I crave no pelf;
I pray for no man but myself;
Grant I may never prove so fond,
To trust man on his oath or bond.
          Timon of Athens. Act i. Sc. 2.
4
    Men shut their doors against a setting sun.
          Timon of Athens. Act i. Sc. 2.
5
    Every room
Hath blazed with lights and bray’d with minstrelsy.
          Timon of Athens. Act ii. Sc. 2.
6
    ’T is lack of kindly warmth.
          Timon of Athens. Act ii. Sc. 2.
7
    Every man has his fault, and honesty is his.

    Nothing emboldens sin so much as mercy.

    Are not within the leaf of pity writ.

11
    I ’ll example you with thievery:
The sun ’s a thief, and with his great attraction
Robs the vast sea; the moon ’s an arrant thief,
And her pale fire she snatches from the sun;
The sea ’s a thief, whose liquid surge resolves
The moon into salt tears; the earth ’s a thief,
That feeds and breeds by a composture stolen
From general excrement: each thing ’s a thief.
          Timon of Athens. Act iv. Sc. 3.
12
    Life’s uncertain voyage.
          Timon of Athens. Act v. Sc. 1.
