The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Butcher at IV, ii) [Law : Lawyers]

He saw me, and yielded, that I may justly say, with the hooked-nosed fellow of Rome, their Caesar, 'I came, saw and overcame.'
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Falstaff at IV, iii) [War]

Chide him for faults, and do it reverently,
  When you perceive his blood inclined to mirth,
    But, being moody, give him time and scope,
      Till that his passions, like a whale on ground,
        Confound themselves with working.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Clarence at IV, iv) [Faults]

He hath a tear for pity and a hand
  Open as day for meting charity.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (King Henry at IV, iv) [Philanthropy]

No, no, he cannot long hold out these pangs.
  The incessant care and labor of his mind
    Hath wrought the mure that should confine it in
      So thin that life looks through and will break out.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Clarence at IV, iv) [Care]

The incessant care and labor of his mind
  Hath wrought the mure that should confine it in
    So thin that life looks through and will break out.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Clarence at IV, iv) [Mind]

Will fortune never come with both hands full,
  But write her fair words still in foulest letters?
    She either gives a stomach and no food--
      Such are the poor, in health--or else a feast
        And takes away the stomach--such are the rich,
          That have abundance, and enjoy it not.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (King Henry at IV, iv) [Fortune : Proverbs]

Have you a ruffian that will swear, drink, dance,
  Revel the night, rob, murder, and commit
    The oldest sins the newest kind of ways?
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Prince Henry at IV, v) [Sin]

How quickly nature falls into revolt
  When gold becomes her object!
    For this the foolish overcareful fathers
      Have broke their sleep with thoughts, their brains with care.
        Their bones with industry.
          For this they have engrossed and piled up
            The cankered heaps of strange-achieved gold;
              For this they have been thoughtful to invest
                Their sons with arts and martial exercises.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (King Henry at IV, v) [Gold]

O polished perturbation! Golden care!
  That keep'st the ports of slumber open wide
    To many a watchful night!
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Prince Henry at IV, v) [Care]

Then get thee gone and dig my grave thyself,
  And bid the merry bells ring to thine ear
    That thou are crowned, not that I am dead.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (King Henry at IV, v) [Bells]

This sleep is sound indeed. This is a sleep
  That from this golden rigol hath divorced
    So many English kings.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Prince Henry at IV, v) [Sleep]

Thy wish was father, Harry, to that thought.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (King Henry at IV, v) [Proverbs : Wishes]

Why doth the crown lie there upon his pillow,
  Being so troublesome a bedfellow?
    O polished perturbation! Golden care!
      That keep'st the ports of slumber open wide
        To many a watchful night! Sleep with it now!
          Yet not so sound and half so deeply sweet
            As he whose brow with homely biggen bound
              Snores out the watch of night.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Prince Henry at IV, v) [Sleep]

O, you shall see him laugh till his face be like a wet cloak ill laid up!
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Falstaff at V, i) [Laughter]

Yet be sad, good brothers,
  For, by my faith, it very well becomes you.
    Sorrow so royally in you appears
      That I will deeply put the fashion on
        And wear it in my heart.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (King Henry at V, ii) [Sadness]

(Falstaff:) What wind blew you hither, Pistol?
  (Pistol:) Not the ill wind which blows no man to good.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Falstaff & Pistol at V, iii) [Wind]

'Fore God, you have here a goodly dwelling and a rich.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Falstaff at V, iii) [Architecture]

(Pistol:) And tidings do I bring and lucky joys
  And golden times and happy news of price.
    (Falstaff:) I pray thee now, deliver them like a man of this world.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Pistol & Falstaff at V, iii) [News]

What, is the old king dead?
  As nail in door. The things I speak are just.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Falstaff & Pistol at V, iii) [Death]

How ill white hairs become a fool and jester!
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (King Henry at V, v) [Folly : Hair]

I heard a bird so sing,
  Whose music, to my thinking, pleased the king.
      - King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Lancaster at V, v) [Birds]

Make less thy body hence, and more thy grace.
  Leave gormandizing.

Presume not that I am the thing I was.
