BANISHMENT
[ Also see Absence Farewell Parting ]

The world was all before them, where to choose
  Their place of rest, and Providence their guide;
    They, hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow,
      Though Eden took their solitary way.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. XII, l. 646)

Worthy Marcius,
  Had we no other quarrel else to Rome, but that
    Thou art thence banish'd, we would muster all
      From twelve to seventy; and, pouring war
        Into the bowels of ungrateful Rome,
          Like a bold flood o'erbeat.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Aufidius at IV, v)

No, my good lord: banish Peto, banish Bardolph, banish Poins; but for sweet Jack Falstaff, kind Jack Falstaff, true Jack Falstaff, valiant Jack Falstaff, and therefore more valiant being, as his is, old Jack Falstaff, banish not him thy Harry's company, banish not him thy Harry's company. Banish plump Jack, and banish all the world!
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Falstaff at II, iv)

Hadst thou no poison mixed, no sharp-ground knife,
  No sudden mean of death, though ne'er so mean,
    But 'banished' to kill me--'banished'?
      O friar, the damned use that word in hell;
        Howling attends it! How hast thou the heart,
          Being a divine, a ghostly confessor,
            A sin-absolver, and my friend professed,
              To mangle me with that word 'banished'?
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Romeo at III, iii)

Myself--a prince by fortune of my birth,
  Near to the king in blood, and near in love
    Till you did make him misinterpret me--
      Have stooped my neck under your injuries
        And sighed my English breath in foreign clouds,
          Eating the bitter bread of banishment,
            Whilst you have fed upon my signories,
              Disparked my parks and felled my forest woods,
                From my own windows torn my household coat,
                  Rased out my imprese, leaving me no sign,
                    Save men's opinions and my living blood,
                      To show the world I am a gentleman.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (Bolingbroke at III, i)
