Virtue is choked with foul ambition
  And charity chased hence by rancor's hand;
    Foul subornation is predominant
      And equity exiled your highness' land.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Gloucester at III, i) [Ambition : Virtue]

Weeds are shallow-rooted,
  Suffer them now, and they'll o'ergrow the garden,
    And choke the herbs for want of husbandry.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Queen Margaret at III, i) [Proverbs]

As far as could ken thy chalky cliffs,
  When from thy shore the tempest beat us back,
    I stood upon the hatches in the storm,
      And when the dusky sky began to rob
        My earnest-gaping sight of thy land's view,
          I took a costly jewel from my neck,
            A heart it was, bound in with diamonds,
              And threw it toward thy land.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Queen Margaret at III, ii) [Storms]

Thrice is he armed that hath his quarrel just,
  And he but naked, though locked up in steel,
    Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.

What stronger breast-plate than a heart untainted.

Who finds the heifer dead and bleeding fresh
  And sees fast-by a butcher with an axe,

         (Warwick at III, ii) [Butchering]

Who finds the partridge in the puttock's nest
  But may imagine how the bird was dead,
    Although the kite soar with unbloodied beak?

         (Warwick at III, ii) [Partridges]

Ah, what a sign it is of evil life
  Where death's approach is seen so terrible.
