As You Like It

by: William Shakespeare

Act III, scenes i–ii


No more but that I know the more one sickens, the worse at ease he is, and that he that wants money, means, and content is without three good friends[.] (III.i.20–22)


Learn of the wise and perpend: civet is of a baser birth than tar, the very uncleanly flux of a cat. Mend the instance, shepherd. (III.i.58–59)


O Lord, Lord, it is a hard matter for friends to meet, but mountains may be removed with earthquakes and so encounter. (III.ii.169)
