Where is any author in the world

Teaches such beauty as a woman's eye?

Love's Labour's Lost, A. 4, S. 3.

The idea of her life shall sweetly creep

Into his study of imagination;

And every lovely organ of her life

Shall come apparel'd in more precious habit,

More moving-delicate, and full of life,

Into the eye and prospect of his soul.

Much Ado About Nothing, A. 4, S. 1.

Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks,

Shall win my love.

Taming of the Shrew, A. 4, S. 2.

Win her with gifts, if she respect not words;

Dumb jewels often, in their silent kind,

More than quick words, do move a woman's mind.

Two Gentlemen of Verona, A. 3, S. 1.

You, that have so fair parts of woman on you,

Have too a woman's heart: which ever yet

Affected eminence, wealth, sovereignty.

Henry VIII., A. 2, S. 3.

'Tis beauty that doth oft make women proud;

'Tis virtue that doth make them most admired.

Henry VI., Pt. 3, A. 1, S. 4.

From woman's eyes this doctrine I derive;

They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;

They are the books, the arts, the academes,

That show, contain, and nourish all the world.

Love's Labour's Lost, A. 4, S. 3.

Her voice was ever soft,

Gentle, and low: an excellent thing in woman.

King Lear, A. 5, S. 3.

Have you not heard it said full oft,

A woman's nay doth stand for naught?

The Passionate Pilgrim, Line 14.

Thou shalt find she will outstrip all praise,

And make it halt behind her.

The Tempest, A. 4. S. 1.

Good name in man and woman,

Is the immediate jewel of their souls.

Othello, A. 3, S. 3.

Women are soft, pitiful, and flexible.

Henry VI., Pt. 3, A. 1. S. 4.

Such duty as the subject owes the prince,

Even such a woman oweth to her husband;

And, when she's froward, peevish, sullen, sour,

And not obedient to his honest will,

What is she, but a contending rebel,

And graceless traitor to her loving lord?

Taming of the Shrew, A. 5, S. 2.

Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale

Her infinite variety: other women cloy

The appetites they feed: but she makes hungry

Where most she satisfies.

Antony and Cleopatra, A. 2, S. 2.

She's beautiful, and therefore to be wooed;

She is a woman, therefore to be won.

Henry VI., Pt. 1, A. 5, S. 3.

Say, that she rail; why, then I'll tell her plain

She sings as sweetly as a nightingale;

Say, that she frown; I'll say, she looks as clear

As morning roses newly wash'd with dew;

Say, she be mute, and will not speak a word;

Then I'll commend her volubility,

And say she uttereth piercing eloquence.

Taming of the Shrew, A. 2, S. 1.

Flatter, and praise, commend, extol their graces;

... Say they have angels' faces.

That man that hath a tongue, I say, is no man,

If with his tongue he cannot win a woman.

Two Gentlemen of Verona, A. 3. S. 1.

Bethink thee on her virtues that Surmount,

And natural graces that extinguish art;

And, which is more, she is not so divine,

So full-replete with choice of all delights,

But, with as humble lowliness of mind,

She is content to be at your command.

Henry VI., Pt. 1, A. 5, S. 5.

Let still the woman take

An elder than herself; so wears she to him,

So sways she level in her husband's heart....
