Quotes from my reading

I can relate!

from Merchant of Venice, by Shakespeare (I was reading Stories From Shakespeare by Marchette Chute, as my brain can't handle straight Shakespeare right now.)
Portia: My little body is aweary of this great world.

from the Oxford Illustrated Minor Works of Jane Austen, a verse by Jane Austen:
On a Headache
When stretch'd on one's bed
With a fierce-throbbing head,
Which precludes alike thought or repose,
How little one cares
For the grandest affairs
That may busy the world as it goes!
