HERE IS A SEARCH TOOL, for searching words/phrases in SHAKESPEARE's works


STUDY THE FOLLOWING two word phrases.

The first word is expected to be an adjective ending in. 'y'.

Some of the first words, you will find, are unfortunately NOT ADJECTIVES.

Identify the first words which are not adjectives.

E.g. "competency lives". Competency, basically is a noun. The relevant adjective form is competent. 'Competency' , though a noun, can be used as an adjective in phrases like 'competency parameters'. But such uses are exceptional. 'Competency' in the under-noted Shakespeare's sentence is used as a noun, which the contextual meaning shows.

Hint: 'My' and 'thy' are attributive possessive adjectives. They end in 'y'.

Do overpeer the______________,
That curtsy to them , do them reverence ,
As they fly by them with their woven wings.
1 and yet , for aught I
see , they are as sick that surfeit with too much as they that
starve with nothing. It is no mean happiness , therefore , to be
seated in the mean: superfluity come sooner by white hairs , but
2 therefore the lott'ry that he hath
devised in these three chests , of gold , silver , and lead- whereof
who chooses his meaning chooses you- will no doubt never be
chosen by any rightly but one who you shall rightly love. But
what warmth is there in your affection towards any of these
______________that are already come.
3 He plies the Duke at morning and at night ,
And doth impeach the freedom of the state ,
If they deny him justice.______________,
The Duke himself , and the magnificoes
Of greatest port , have all persuaded with him.
And when the work of generation was
Between these______________in the act ,
The skilful shepherd pill'd me certain wands ,

Who , then conceiving , did in eaning time
Fall parti-colour'd lambs , and those were Jacob's.
1 I will______________with him.
But love is blind , and lovers cannot see
The______________that themselves commit ,
For , if they could , Cupid himself would blush

3 the Goodwins I think
they call the place , a______________flat and fatal , where the
carcases of many a tall ship lie buried , as they say , if my
gossip Report be an honest woman of her word.
1 SOLANIO. Believe me , sir , had I such venture forth ,
The better part of______________would
Be with my hopes abroad. I should be still
Plucking the grass to know where sits the wind ,
Peering in maps for ports , and piers , and roads.
2 I will not say you
shall see a masque , but if you do , then it was not for nothing
that my nose fell a-bleeding on Black Monday last at six o'clock
i' th' morning , falling out that year on Ash______________four
year , in th' afternoon.

And so all yours. O! these______________ Puts bars between the owners and their rights.
4 but thou , thou meagre lead ,
Which rather threaten'st than dost promise aught ,
______________moves me more than eloquence ,
And here choose I. Joy be the consequence.
And where thou now exacts the penalty ,
Which is a pound of this poor merchant's flesh ,
Thou wilt not only loose the forfeiture ,
But , touch'd with human gentleness and love ,
Forgive a moiety of the principal ,
Glancing an eye of pity on his losses ,
That have of late so huddled on his back-
Enow to press a royal merchant down ,
And pluck commiseration of his state
From______________and rough hearts of flint ,
From stubborn Turks and Tartars , never trained
To offices of tender courtesy.
And earthly power doth then show likest God's
When______________justice. Therefore , Jew ,
Though justice be thy plea , consider this-
That in the course of justice none of us
Should see salvation.
But more for that in low simplicity
He lends out______________, and brings down
The rate of usance here with us in Venice.

Is like a villain with a smiling cheek ,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart.

4 PORTIA. To these injunctions every one doth swear
That comes to hazard for______________self.
5 How______________, whose hearts are all as false
As stairs of s.
6 Such as I am. Though for myself alone
I would not be ambitious in my wish
To wish myself much better , yet for you
I would be trebled______________myself ,
A thousand times more fair , ten thousand times more rich ,
That only to stand high in your account
I might in virtues , beauties , livings , friends ,
Exceed account. But the full sum of me
Is sum of something which , to term in gross ,
Is an unlesson'd girl , unschool'd , unpractis'd.
7 Enter LORENZO , JESSICA , and SALERIO , a messenger
from Venice
BASSANIO. Lorenzo and Salerio , welcome hither ,

And many Jasons come in quest of her.
4 ANTONIO. Thou know'st that all______________are at sea.
5 PORTIA. He doth nothing but frown , as who should say 'An you will
not have me , choose.' He hears______________and smiles not. I fear
he will prove the weeping philosopher when he grows old , being so
full of unmannerly sadness in his youth. I had rather be married
to a death's-head with a bone in his mouth than to either of
these. God defend me from these two.
6 and he rails ,
Even there where merchants most do congregate ,
On me ,______________, and my well-won thrift ,

If I forgive him.

Unless Bellario , a learned doctor ,
Whom I have sent for to determine this ,
Come here to-day.
14 for______________ Are wolfish , bloody , starv'd and ravenous.
15Belmont. The garden before PORTIA'S house
LORENZO. The moon shines bright. In such a night as this ,
When the sweet wind did______________the trees ,
And they did make no noise- in such a night ,
Troilus methinks mounted the Troyan walls ,

Where Cressid lay that night.

______________will before the break of day
Be here at Belmont.
