“Make me a willow cabin at your gate” – Viola, Twelfth Night
“Books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in every thing” – Duke Senior, As You Like it
“The wish deserves a welcome” – The Provost, Measure for Measure
“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows…Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows” – Oberon, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
