Thus yields the cedar to the axe's edge,
  Whose arms gave shelter to the princely eagle,
    Under whose shade the ramping lion slept,
      Whose top-branch overpeered Jove's spreading tree
        And kept low shrubs from winter's powerful wind.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at V, ii) [Cedar]

Why, what is pomp, rule, reign, but earth and dust
  And, live we how we can, yet die we must.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at V, ii) [Death]

A little gale will soon disperse that cloud
  And blow it to the source from whence it came.
    Thy very beams will dry those vapors up,
      For every cloud engenders not a storm.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Clarence at V, iii) [Storms]

Thus far our fortune keeps an upward course
  And we are graced with wreaths of victory;
    But in the midst of this bright-shining day
      I spy a black, suspicious, threat'ning cloud
        That will encounter with our glorious sun
          Ere he attain his easeful western bed.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Edward at V, iii) [Victory]

Great lords, wise men ne'er sit and wail their loss
  But cheerly seek how to redress their harms.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Queen Margaret at V, iv) [Loss]

Lords, knights and gentlemen, what I should say
  My tears gainsay; for every word I speak,
    Ye see I drink the water of my eye.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Queen Margaret at V, iv) [Tears]

What Clarence but a quicksand of deceit?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Queen Margaret at V, iv) [Deceit]

Why, courage then, what cannot be avoided
  'Twere childish weakness to lament or fear.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Queen Margaret at V, iv) [Courage]

What! can so young a thorn begin to prick?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Edward at V, v) [Proverbs]

Away with her, and waft her hence to France.
  And now what rests but that we spend the time
    With stately triumphs, mirthful comic shows,
      Such as befits the pleasure of the court?
        Sound drums and trumpets! Farewell sour annoy!
          For here I hope begins our lasting joy.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Edward at V, vi)
        [Books (Last Lines)]

Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind!
  The thief doth fear each bush an officer.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III

Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind;
  The thief doth fear each bush an officer.

The bird that hath been limed in a bush
  With trembling wing misdoubteth every bush.

         (King Henry at V, vi) [Proverbs]

To say the truth, so Judas kissed his master
  And cried, 'All hail!' when as he meant all harm.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at V, vii)
        [Treachery]

Crowns have their compass--length of days their date--
  Triumphs their tomb--felicity, her fate--
    Of nought but earth can earth make us partaker,
      But knowledge makes a king most like his Maker.
      - King Henry VIII,
        on King James I, see Payne Collier "Life of Shakespeare"
        [Knowledge]

There's in him stuff that puts him to these ends;
  For being not propped up by ancestry whose grace
    Chalks successors their way; nor called upon
      For high feats done to the crown; neither allied
        To eminent assistants; but, spider-like,
          Out of big self-drawing web, he gives us note;
            The force of his own merit makes his way;
              A gift that heaven gives for him, which buys
                A place next to a king.
      - King Henry VIII [Ability]

Be thou as lightning in the eyes of France;
  For ere thou can'st report I will be there,
    The thunder of my cannon shall be heard;
      So hence! Be thou the trumpet of our wrath.
      - King John [War]

There was never yet fair woman but made mouths in a glass.
      - King Lear [Vanity]

Fairest Cordelia, that art most rich being poor,
  Most choice forsaken, and most loved despised,
    Thee and thy virtues here I seize upon.
      - King Lear (King of France at I, i)

Haply, when I shall wed,
  That lord whose hand must take my plight shall carry
    Half my love with him, half my care and duty.

I thought the King had more affected the Duke of Albany than Cornwall.
      - King Lear (Kent at I, i)

Nothing can come of nothing.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, i) [Proverbs]

Nothing will come of nothing. Speak again.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, i) [Silence]

Tell me, my daughters
  (Since now we will divest us both of rule,
    Interest of territory, cares of state),
      Which of you shall we say doth love us most,
        That our largest bounty may extend
          Where nature doth with merit challenge.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, i) [Love]

Thou hast her, France; let her be thine, for we
  Have no such daughter, nor shall ever see
    That face of hers again. Therefore be gone
      Without our grace, our love, our benison.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, i)
        [Childhood : Daughters]
