Famous quotes containing the word wilt:

    To mask thy monstrous visage?

    And when I am a’horseback, I will swear
    I love thee infinitely.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    ‘Tis no extravagant arithmetic to say, that for every ten jokes,—thou hast got an hundred enemies; and till thou hast gone on, and raised a swarm of wasps about thine ears, and art half stung to death by them, thou wilt never be convinced it is so.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
