    The barge she sat in, like a burnish’d throne,
Burn’d on the water; the poop was beaten gold;
Purple the sails, and so perfumed that
The winds were love-sick with them; the oars were silver,
Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made
The water which they beat to follow faster,
As amorous of their strokes. For her own person,
It beggar’d all description.
          Antony and Cleopatra. Act ii. Sc. 2.

Plumpy Bacchus with pink eyne!

    Who does i’ the wars more than his captain can
Becomes his captain’s captain; and ambition,
The soldier’s virtue, rather makes choice of loss,
Than gain which darkens him.

    He wears the rose
Of youth upon him.

A parcel of their fortunes; and things outward
Do draw the inward quality after them,
To suffer all alike.

    Sometime we see a cloud that ’s dragonish;
A vapour sometime like a bear or lion,
A tower’d citadel, a pendent rock,
A forked mountain, or blue promontory
With trees upon ’t.

The rack dislimns, and makes it indistinct,
As water is in water.

There was no winter in ’t; an autumn ’t was
That grew the more by reaping.

It ’s past the size of dreaming.
