O, where is loyalty?
  If it be banished from the frosty head,
    Where shall it find a harbor in the earth?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (King Henry at V, i) [Fidelity]

After them? Nay, before them, if we can.
  Now, by my faith, lords, 'twas a glorious day.
    Saint Albans battle, won by famous York,
      Shall be eternalized in all age to come.
        Sound drum and trumpets, and to London all;
          And more such days as these to us befall!
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Warwick at V, ii) [Books (Last Lines)]

Even at this sight
  My heart is turned to stone; and while 'tis mine,
    It shall be stony.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Young Clifford at V, ii) [Heart]

O war, thou son of hell,
  Whom angry heavens do make their minister,
    Throw in the frozen bosoms of our part
      Hot coals of vengeance. Let no soldier fly.
        He that is truly dedicate to war
          Hath no self-love; nor he that loves himself
            Hath not essentially, but by circumstance,
              The name of valor.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Young Clifford at V, ii) [War]

The silver livery of advised age.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Young Clifford at V, ii) [Proverbs]

I wonder how the king escaped our hands?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at I, i) [Books (First Lines)]

Who can be patient in such extremes?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Queen Margaret at I, i) [Extremes]

A woman's general. What should we fear?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Richard, Duke of Gloucester at I, ii)
        [Proverbs]

Do not honor him so much
  To prick thy finger, though to wound his heart.
    What valor were it, when a cur doth grin,
      For one to thrust his hand between his teeth
        When he might spurn him with his foot away?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Northumberland at I, iv) [Valor]

It is war's prize to take all vantages;
  And ten to one is no impeach of valor.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Northumberland at I, iv) [War]

It needs not nor it boots thee not, proud queen,
  Unless the adage must be verified,
    That beggars mounted run their horse to death.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at I, iv)
        [Beggary]

Open thy gate of mercy, gracious God,
  My soul flies through these wounds to seek out thee.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at I, iv)
        [Mercy]

So cowards fight when they can fly no further;
  So doves do peck the falcon's piercing talons;
    So desperate thieves, all hopeless of their lives,
      Breathe out invectives 'gainst the officers.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Clifford at I, iv) [Cowards]

The sands are numb'red that makes up my life.
  Here must I stay and here my life must end.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at I, iv)
        [Death : Life]

'Tis beauty that doth oft make women proud;
  But God he knows thy share thereof is small
    'Tis virtue that doth make them most admired;
      The contrary doth make thee wond'red at.
        'Tis government that makes them seem divine;
          The want thereof makes thee abominable.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at I, iv)
        [Women]

We bodged again, as I have been a swan
  With bootless labor swim against the tide
    And spend her strength with overmatching waves.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at I, iv)
        [Swans]

But Hercules himself must yield to odds;
  And many strokes, though with a little axe,
    Hews down and fells the hardest-timbered oak.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Messenger at II, i)
        [Perseverance : Trifles]

I cannot weep, for all my body's moisture
  Scarce serves to quench my furnace-burning heart;
    Nor can my tongue unload my heart's great burden,
      For selfsame wind that I should speak withal
        Is kindling coals that fires all my breast
          And burns me up with flames that tears would quench.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Richard, Duke of Gloucester at II, i)
        [Tears]

See how the morning opes her golden gates
  And takes her farewell of the glorious sun.
    How well resembles it the prime of youth
      Trimmed like a younker prancing to his love.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Richard, Duke of Gloucester at II, i)
        [Morning]

Ten day ago I drowned these news in tears;
  And now, to add more measure to your woes,
    I come to tell you things sith then befallen.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at II, i) [News]

But, Clifford, tell me, didst thou never hear,
  That things ill got had ever bad success?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at II, ii) [Proverbs : Success]

Sound trumpets! Let our bloody colors wave,
  And either victory, or else a grave!
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Edward, Prince of Wales at II, ii) [War]

The smallest worm will turn, being trodden on,
  And doves will peck in safeguard of their brood.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Clifford at II, ii) [Courage : Proverbs]

The smallest worm will turn, being trodden on.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Clifford at II, ii) [Courage : Proverbs]

O God! methinks it were a happy life
  To be no better than a homely swain;
    To sit upon a hill, as I do now,
      To carve out dials, quaintly, point by point,
        Thereby to see the minutes, how they run--
          How many makes the hour full complete,
            How many hours brings about the day,
              How many days will finish up the year,
                How many years a mortal man may live;
                  When this is known, then to divide the times--
                    So many hours must I tend my flock,
                      So many hours must I take my rest,
                        So many hours must I contemplate,
                          So many hours must I sport myself;
                            So many days my ewes have been with young,
                              So many weeks ere the poor fools will ean,
                                So many months ere I shall shear the fleece.
                                  So minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years,
                                    Passed over to the end they were created,
                                      Would bring white hairs unto a quiet grave.
                                        Ah, what a life were this!
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at II, iii)
        [Sun Dial Mottoes : Time]
