Our hap is loss, our hope but sad despair,
  Our ranks are broke and ruin follows us.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Clarence at II, iii) [Hope]

And to conclude, the shepherd's homely curds,
  His cold thin drink out of his leather bottle,
    His wonted sleep under a fresh tree's shade,
      All which secure and sweetly he enjoys,
        Is far beyond a prince's delicates,
          His viands sparkling in a golden cup,
            His body couched in a curious bed,
              When care, mistrust, and treason waits on him.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at II, v) [Contentment]

Gives not the hawthorn-bush a sweeter shade
  To shepherds looking on their silly sheep
    Than doth a rich embroidered canopy
      To kings that fear their subjects' treachery?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at II, v) [Hawthorn]

See, see what show'rs arise,
  Blown with windy tempest of my heart
    Upon thy wounds, that kills mine eye and heart.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Father at II, v) [Tears]

Thou that so stoutly hast resisted me,
  Give me thy gold, if thou hast any gold;
    For I have bought it with an hundred blows.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Father at II, v) [Gold]

To whom God will, there be the victory.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at II, v) [Victory]

Would I were dead, if God's good will were so,
  For what is in this world but grief and woe?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at II, v) [World]

Here burns my candle out; ay, here it dies,
  Which, whiles it lasted, gave King Henry light.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Clifford at II, vi) [Destiny]

Her sighs will make a batt'ry in his breast;
  Her tears will pierce into a marble heart;
    The tiger will be mild whiles she doth mourn,
      And Nero will be tainted with remorse
        To hear and see her plaints, her brinish tears.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at III, i) [Women]

Her tears will pierce into a marble heart.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at III, i) [Proverbs]

Let me embrace thee, sour adversity,
  For wise men say it is the wisest course.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at III, i) [Adversity]

Look, as I blow this feather from my face
  And as the air blows it to me again,
    Obeying with my wind when I do blow
      And yielding to another when it blows,
        Commanded always by the greater gust--
          Such is the lightness of you common men.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at III, i) [Public]

My crown is in my heart, not on my head;
  Not decked with diamonds and Indian stones,
    Nor to be seen. My crown is called content;
      A crown it is that seldom kings enjoy.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at III, i) [Contentment]

Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
  And cry 'Content!' to that which grieves my heart,
    And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
      And frame my face to all occasions.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Richard, Duke of Gloucester at III, ii)
        [Contentment]

His demand
  Springs not from Edward's well-meant honest love,
    Bur from deceit, bred by necessity;
      For how can tyrants safely govern home
        Unless abroad they purchase great alliance?
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Queen Margaret at III, iii) [Tyrants]

They shall have wars and pay for their presumption.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Edward at IV, i) [War]

I hold it cowardice
  To rest mistrustful where a noble heart
    Hath pawned an open hand in sign of love.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at IV, ii) [Cowardice]

What fates impose, that men must needs abide;
  It boots not to resist both wind and tide.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Edward at IV, iii) [Fate]

Trust not him that hath once broken faith.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Queen Elizabeth at IV, iv) [Proverbs]

And fearless minds climb soonest unto crowns.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Richard, Duke of Gloucester at IV, vii)
        [Royalty]

But when the fox hath once got in his nose,
  He'll soon find means to make the body follow.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Richard, Duke of Gloucester at IV, vii)
        [Deceit]

A little fire is quickly trodden out;
  Which, being suffer'd, rivers cannot quench.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Clarence at IV, viii) [Fire : Proverbs]

My pity hath been balm to heal their wounds,
  My mildness hath allayed their swelling griefs,
    My mercy dried their water-flowing tears.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at IV, viii) [Pity]

I had rather chop this hand off at a blow
  And with the other fling it at thy face
    Than bear so low a sail to strike to thee.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at V, i) [Contempt]

Ah, who is nigh? Come to me, friend or foe,
  And tell me who is victor, York or Warwick.
    Why ask I that? My mangled body shows,
      My blood, my want of strength, my sick heart shows,
        That I must yield my body to the earth.
          And, by my fall, the conquest to my foe.
            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 tee
                    And kept low shrubs from winter's powerful wind.
      - King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at V, ii) [Death]
