Hung be the heavens with black, yield day to night!
  Comets, importing change of times and states,
    Brandish your crystal tresses in the sky
      And with them scourge the bad revolting stars
        That have consented unto Henry's death--
          King Henry the Fifth, too famous to live long!
            England ne'er lost a king of so much worth.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Bedford at I, i) [Books (First Lines)]

  I know not where I am nor what I do.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Talbot at I, v) [Thought]

So bees with smoke and doves with noisome stench
  Are from their hives and houses driven away.

      Now, like to whelps, we crying run away.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Talbot at I, v) [Cowardice]

No, truly, 'tis more than manners will;
  And I have heard it said, unbidden guests
    Are often welcomest when they are gone.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Bedford at II, ii) [Guests]

The day begins to break and night is fled,
  Whose pitchy mantle overveiled the earth.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Bedford at II, ii) [Morning : Night]

Between two hawks, which flies the higher pitch,
  Between two dogs, which hath the deeper mouth,
    Between two blades, which bears the better temper,
      Between two horses, which doth bear him best,
        Between two girls, which hath the merriest eye,
          I have perhaps some shallow spirit of judgment;
            But in these nice sharp quillets of the law,
              Good faith, I am no wiser than a daw.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Warwick at II, iv) [Hawks : Law]

Faith, I have been a truant in the law

Let him that is a true-born gentleman
  And stands upon the honor of his birth,
    If he suppose that I have pleaded truth,
      From off this brier pluck a white rose with me.

         (Plantagenet, Duke of York at II, iv)

Believe me, lords, my tender years can tell
  Civil dissension is a viperous worm
    That gnaws the bowels of the commonwealth.

When first this order was ordained, my lords,
  Knights of the Garter were of noble birth,

          But always resolute in most extremes.
