Antony and Cleopatra (1606 – 1623)


Antony and Cleopatra is a historical tragedy by William Shakespeare, originally printed in the First Folio of 1623.
Antony and Cleopatra
Menís judgments are
A parcel of their fortunes; and things outward
Do draw the inward quality after them,
To suffer all alike.
Cleopatra quotes
To the boy Caesar send this grizzled head,
And he will fill thy wishes to the brim
With principalities.
Cleopatra
Give me to drink mandragora.




Cleopatra Antony and quotes
She shall be buried by her Antony:
No grave upon the earth shall clip in it
A pair so famous.
Cleopatra Antony and
He calls me boy; and chides, as he had power
To beat me out of Egypt; my messenger
He hath whipp'd with rods; dares me to personal combat,
Caesar to Antony: let the old ruffian know
I have many other ways to die; meantime
Laugh at his challenge.
Antony and Cleopatra quotes
Let the world rank me in register
A master-leaver and a fugitive:
O Antony! O Antony!
Antony and Cleopatra
Mine honesty and I begin to square.
Cleopatra Antony and quotes
If I knew
What hoop should hold us staunch, from edge to edge
O' the world I would pursue it.
Cleopatra
Nay, but this dotage of our general's
O'erflows the measure.
Cleopatra Antony and
For his bounty,
There was no winter in ít; an autumn ít was,
That grew the more by reaping.
Antony and Cleopatra
It's monstrous labour, when I wash my brain,
And it grows fouler.




Antony and Cleopatra quotes
She looks like sleep,
As she would catch another Antony
In her strong toil of grace.
Antony and Cleopatra
This grief is crowned with consolation.
Cleopatra quotes
I'll make death love me; for I will contend
Even with his pestilent scythe.
Cleopatra Antony and
In nature's infinite book of secrecy
A little I can read.
Cleopatra Antony and quotes
The seven-fold shield of Ajax cannot keep
The battery from my heart. O, cleave, my sides!
Antony and Cleopatra
O sovereign mistress of true melancholy,
The poisonous damp of night disponge upon me,
That life, a very rebel to my will,
May hang no longer on me.
Antony and Cleopatra quotes
Come, thou monarch of the vine,
Plumpy Bacchus with pink eyne!
Antony and Cleopatra
The time of universal peace is near.
Cleopatra Antony and
Alack, our terrene moon
Is now eclipsed; and it portends alone
The fall of Antony!
