Here is a post on some quotable quotes on the play that I’m reading for Lit class right now, Much Ado About Nothing. I’m bound to find more as I read on but I’d like to share what I’ve seen so far.
Benedick: Look, it’s my dear Lady Disdain! Aren’t you dead yet?
Beatrice: How could disdain die when you’re here? When you’re around, even Lady Courtesy becomes Lady Disdain!
Benedick: If I’m going to sing along with you, I need to know what key you’re singing in.
Don Pedro: I swear, before I die I’m going to see you sick with love.
Don John: It suits me more to be hated by everyone than to put on a fancy show and trick people into loving me.
Beatrice: Tell him that romance is like a dance: it has its own rhythm and timing.
Claudio: Friendship is enduring except when love is involved.
Claudio: Beauty is a witch whose spells can turn loyalty into passion.
These are in plain english ’cause I got it from my copy of No Fear Shakespeare.
