As You Like It
Well then, if ever I thank any man, I'll thank you; but
that they call compliment is like th' encounter of two dog-apes;
and when a man thanks me heartily, methinks have given him a
penny, and he renders me the beggarly thanks. Come, sing; and you that will not, hold your tongues. (2.5.5)
JAQUES [Quoting Touchstone]
'Tis but an hour ago since it was nine;
And after one hour more 'twill be eleven;
And so, from hour to hour, we ripe and ripe,
And then, from hour to hour, we rot and rot;
And thereby hangs a tale.' (2.7.1)
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly.
Then, heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly. (2.7.1)
