O Ceremony, show me but thy worth?
  What is thy soul of adoration?
    Art thou aught else but place, degree, and form,
      Creating awe and fear in other men?
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, i) [Ceremony]

There is some soul of goodness in things evil,
  Would men observingly distill it out;
    For our bad neighbor makes us early stirrers,
      Which is both healthful, and good husbandry.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, i) [Goodness : Proverbs]

'Tis good for men to love their present pains
  Upon example: so the spirit is eased;
    And when the mind is quicken'd, out of doubt,
      The organs, though defunct and dead before,
        Break up their drowsy grave and newly move
          With casted slough and fresh legerity.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, i) [Mind]

What drink'st thou oft, instead of homage sweet,
  But poisoned flattery?
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, i) [Flattery]

What infinite heart's-ease
  Must kings neglect that private men enjoy!
    And what have kings that privates have not too,
      Save ceremony, save general ceremony?
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, i) [Ceremony]

By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
  Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
    It yearns me not if me my garments wear;
      Such outward things dwell not in my desires:
        But if it be a sin to covet honor,
          I am the most offending soul alive.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, iii) [Covetousness]

Farewell, good Salisbury, and good luck go with thee!
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Bedford at IV, iii) [Luck]

Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
  That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
    Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
      And crowns for convoy put into his purse.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, iii) [War]

The man that once did sell the lion's skin
  While the beast lived, was killed with hunting him.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, iii) [Lions]

Then shall our names,
  Familiar in his mouth as household words--
    Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
      Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester--
        Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, iii) [Names : Words]

I did never know so full a voice issue from so empty a heart; but the saying is true, 'The empty vessel makes the greatest sound.'
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Boy at IV, v) [Silence : Sound]

Let life be short; else shame will be too long.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Bourbon at IV, v) [Life]

Mort de ma vie! all is confounded, all!
  Reproach and everlasting shame
    Sits mocking in our plumes.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Dauphin at IV, v) [Shame]

The pretty and sweet manner of it forced
  Those waters from me which I would have stopped;
    But I had not so much of man in me,
      And all my mother came into mine eyes
        And gave me up to tears.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, vi)
        [Frailty : Motherhood : Tears]

O God, thy arm was here!
  And not to use, but to thy arm alone,
    Ascribe we all!
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at IV, viii) [Providence]

O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend
  The brightest heaven of invention;
    A kingdom for a stage, princes to act
      And monarchs to behold the swelling scene!
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Speaker at prologue)
        [Books (First Lines) : Poetry]

But now behold,
  In the quick forge and working-house of thought,
    How London doth pour out her citizens!

There is occasions and causes why and wherefore in all things.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Fluellen at V, i) [Argument]

A good leg will fall, a straight back will stoop, a black beard will turn white, a curled pate will grow bald, a fair face will wither, a full eye will wax hollow; but a good heart, Kate, is the sun and the moon; or rather, the sun, and not the moon, for it shines brights and never changes, but keeps his course truly.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at V, ii) [Aging : Beauty : Heart]

Fair Katherine, and most fair,
  Will you vouchsafe to teach a soldier terms
    Such as will enter at a lady's ear
      And plead his love suit to her gentle heart?
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at V, ii) [Wooing]

God, the best maker of all marriages,
  Combine your hearts in one, your realms in one!
    As man and wife, being two are one in love,
      So be there 'twixt your kingdoms such a spousal
        That never may ill office, or fell jealousy,
          Which troubles oft the bed of blessed marriage,
            Thrust in between the paction of these kingdoms
              To make divorce of their incorporate league;
                That English may as French, French Englishmen,
                  Receive each other! God speak this Amen!
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth

It is not a fashion for the maids in France to kiss before they are married, would she say?

Since, then, my office hath so far prevailed
  That, face to face and royal eye to eye,
    You have congreeted, let it not disgrace me
      If I demand before this royal view,
        What rub or what impediment there is
          Why that the naked, poor, and mangled Peace,
            Dear nurse of arts, plenties, and joyful births,
              Should not, in this best garden of the world,
                Our fertile France, put up her lovely visage.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Burgundy at V, ii) [Peace]

Take her, fair son, and from her blood raise up
  Issue to me, that the contending kingdoms
    Of France and England, whose very shores look pale
      With envy of each other's happiness,
        May cease their hatred, and this dear conjunction
          Plant neighborhood and Christian-like accord
            In their sweet bosoms, that never war advance
              His bleeding sword 'twixt England and fair France.
      - The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Isabel, Queen of France at V, ii)
        [Christianity]
