Time shall unfold what plaited cunning hides.
      - King Lear (Cordelia at I, i) [Proverbs]

Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides,
  Who covers faults, at last with shame derides.
      - King Lear (Cordelia at I, i) [Time]

To thee and thine hereditary ever
  Remain this ample third of our fair kingdom,
    No less in space, validity, and pleasure
      Than that conferred on Goneril.--Now, our joy,
        Although our last and least; to whose young love
          The vines of France and milk of Burgundy
            Strive to be interest; what can you say to draw
              A third more opulent than your sisters? Speak.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, i) [Equality]

This is the excellent foppery of the world, that when we are sick in fortune, often the surfeits of our own behavior, we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and stars; as if we were villains on necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical predominance; drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on.
  An admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition on the charge of a star.
      - King Lear (Edmund at I, ii) [Foppery]

Whose nature is so far from doing harms,
  That he suspects none.
      - King Lear (Edmund at I, ii) [Proverbs]

As you are old and reverend, should be wise.
      - King Lear (Goneril at I, iv) [Age]

For you know, nuncle,
  The hedge-sparrow fed the cuckoo so long
    That it's had it head bit off by it young.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv) [Sparrows]

Have more than thou showest,
  Speak less than thou knowest,
    Lend less than thou owest,
      Ride more than thou goest,
        Learn more than thou trowest,
          Set less than thou throwest;
            Leave thy drink and thy whore,
              And keep in-a-door,
                And thou shalt have more
                  Than two tens to a score.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv)
        [Economy : Proverbs]

Have more than thou showest,
  Speak less than thou knowest.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv)
        [Economy : Proverbs]

He that keeps nor crust nor crumb,
  Weary of all shall want some.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv) [Proverbs]

He that keeps not crust nor crum
  Weary of all, shall want some.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv) [Eating]

How far your eyes may pierce I cannot tell;
  Striving to better, oft we mar what's well.
      - King Lear (Albany at I, iv) [Error : Results]

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is,
  To have a thankless child.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, iv) [Proverbs]

I do profess to be no less that I seem, to serve him truly that will put me in trust, to love him that is honest, to converse with him that is wise and says little, to fear judgment, to fight when I cannot choose, and to eat no fish.
      - King Lear (Kent at I, iv) [Character]

I have perceived a most faint neglect of late, which I have rather blamed as mine own jealous curiosity than as a very pretense and purpose of unkindness.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, iv) [Curiosity]

Ingratitude! thou marble-hearted fiend,
  More hideous when thou show'st thee in a child
    Than the sea-monster.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, iv)
        [Ingratitude]

Let it stamp wrinkles in her brow of youth,
  With cadent tears fret channels in her cheeks,
    Turn all her mother's pains and benefits
      To laughter and contempt, that she may feel
        How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is
          To have a thankless child.
      - King Lear (King Lear at I, iv)
        [Thankfulness]

May not an ass know when the cart draws the horse?
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv) [Idiots]

Striving to better, oft we mar what's well.
      - King Lear (Albany at I, iv) [Proverbs]

Then 'tis like the breath of an unfee'd lawyer--you gave me nothing for't.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv) [Law]

Truth is a dog that must to kennel. He must be whipped, when Lady, the brach, may stand by the fire and stink.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, iv) [Proverbs]

Thou shouldst not have been old till thou hadst been wise.
      - King Lear (Fool at I, v) [Wisdom]

You have heard of the news abroad--I mean the whispered ones, for they are yet but ear-kissing arguments?
      - King Lear (Curan at II, i) [Argument]

A good man's fortune may grow out at heels.
      - King Lear (Kent at II, ii) [Fortune]

A knave, a rascal, an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-faking, whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pander, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch; one whom I will beat into clamorous whining if thou deny'st the least syllable of thy addition.
      - King Lear (Kent at II, ii) [Knavery]
