"How well he's read, to reason against reading!"
King of Navarre - 'Love's Labour's Lost' Act I, Scene 1
"A jest's prosperity lies in the earAnd Finally - The 'Labours' set by the women for the men to prove their love are a bit random.

"Was ever woman in this humour woo'd?

"I think Crab, my dog, be the sourest-natured dog that lives. My mother weeping, my father wailing, my sister crying, our maid howling, our cat wringing her hands, and all our house in a great perplexity, yet did not this cruel-hearted cur shed one tear."
"Thy Mother's of my generation. What's she, if I be a dog?"
