As you like it by William Shakespeare

PHEBE: Think not I love him, though I ask for him; ‘Tis but a peevish boy; yet he talks well. But what care I for words? Yet words do well When he that speaks them pleases those that hear. It is a pretty youth; not very pretty; But sure he’s proud; and yet his pride becomes him. He’ll make a [...]

Princesa: Mireu, ara se’m salva la bellesa pel mèrit que faig! Oh, l’heretgia en la bellesa, pròpia d’aquests temps! Mà que dóna, per molt lletja que sigui, s’endurà sempre un bell elogi.

An Ideal Husband: Oscar Wilde

By Bernard Shaw TANNER: You, Tavy, are an artist: that is, you have a purpose as absorbing and as unscrupulous as a woman’s purpose…. The true artist will let his wife starve, his children go barefoot, his mother drudge for his living at seventy, sooner than work at anything but his art. To women he is half vivisector, half vampire. [...]

Caesar and Cleopatra

By Bernard Shaw CAESAR: If one man in all the world can be found, now or forever, to know that you did wrong, that man will have either to conquer the world as I have, or be crucified by it.
