Sex Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

BEROWNE: But there are other strict observances,
As: not to see a woman in that term,
Which I hope well is not enrolled there; (1.1.4)

Berowne would love to study for three years, but not if it means he doesn't get the pleasure of female company. He doubts any of the lords can stick to this plan, but eventually agrees anyway.

Quote #2

COSTARD: Such is the simplicity of man to hearken after the flesh. (1.1.61)

For Costard, this goes without saying. It's a truth that the lords will have to learn.

Quote #3

BOYET: Why, all his behaviours did make their retire
To the court of his eye, peeping thorough desire. (2.1.102)

Boyet describes the King's eying of the Princess. Have you noticed that, in this play, attraction is all about the eyes?
