Timon of Athens Quotations

Who, the Lord Timon? he is my very good friend, and
an honourable gentleman.

Said by: Lucilius
Reference information: Act III Scene II

Servilius! you are kindly met, sir. Fare thee well:
commend me to thy honourable virtuous lord, my very
exquisite friend.

Said by: Lucilius
Reference information: Act III Scene II

For mine own part,
I never tasted Timon in my life,
Nor came any of his bounties over me,
To mark me for his friend; yet, I protest,
For his right noble mind, illustrious virtue
And honourable carriage,
Had his necessity made use of me,
I would have put my wealth into donation,
And the best half should have return'd to him,
So much I love his heart: but, I perceive,
Men must learn now with pity to dispense;
For policy sits above conscience.

Said by: First Stranger
Reference information: Act III Scene II
