You have seen
  Sunshine and rain at once--her smiles and tears
    Were like, a better way: those happy smilets
      That played on her ripe lip seemed not to know
        What guests were in her eyes, which parted thence
          As pearls from diamonds dropped.
      - King Lear (Gentleman at IV, iii) [Smiles]

Our foster nurse of nature is repose,
  The which he lacks. That to provoke in him
    Are many simples operative, whose power
      Will close the eye of anguish.
      - King Lear (Doctor at IV, iv) [Repose]

Ay, every inch a king.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vi) [Royalty]

Get thee glass eyes
  And, like a scurvy politician, seem
    To see the things thou dost not.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vi) [Politics]

Henceforth, I'll bear
  Affliction till it do cry out itself,
    'Enough, enough, and die.'
      - King Lear (Gloucester at IV, vi)
        [Affliction]

Thou hast seen a farmer's dog bark at a beggar? . . . And the creature run from the cur. There thou mightst behold the great image of authority--a dog's obeyed in office.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vi)
        [Authority : Dogs]

Thou old unhappy traitor,
  Briefly thyself remember.
      - King Lear (Oswald at IV, vi) [Memory]

Through tattered clothes small vices do appear;
  Robes and furred gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,
    And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
      Arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw doth pierce it.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vi)
        [Apparel : Proverbs : Sin]

Through tattered clothes small vices do appear;
  Robes and furred gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,
    And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
      Arm it in rags, a pygmy's straw does pierce it.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vi)
        [Proverbs : Sin]

Thy life's a miracle.
      - King Lear (Edgar at IV, vi) [Life]

When we are born, we cry that we are come
  To this great stage of fools.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vi)
        [Birth : Life : Tears]

You ever-gentle gods, take my breath from me;
  Let not my worser spirit tempt me again
    To die before you please.
      - King Lear (Gloucester at IV, vi) [Suicide]

Pray, do not mock me.
  I am a very foolish fond old man,
    Fourscore and upward, not an hour more nor less;
      And, to deal plainly,
        I fear I am not in my perfect mind.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vii) [Age]

Thou art a soul in bliss; but I am bound
  Upon a wheel of fire, that mine own tears
    Do scald me like molten lead.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV, vii)
        [Affliction]

[To stand against the deep, dread-bolted thunder?
  In the most terrible and nimble stroke
    Of quick cross lightning to watch, poor perdu,
      With this thin helm?]
      - King Lear (Cordelia at IV, vii) [Thunder]

A dog's obeyed in office.
      - King Lear (King Lear at IV,vi) [Authority]

Which of them shall I take?
  Both? One? Or neither? Neither can be enjoyed,
    If both remain alive. To take the widow
      Exasperates, makes mad her sister Goneril;
        And hardly shall I carry out my side,
          Her husband being alive.
      - King Lear (Edmund at V, i) [Choice]

He that parts us shall bring a brand from heaven
  And fire us hence like foxes.
      - King Lear (King Lear at V, iii)
        [Constancy]

Her voice was ever soft,
  Gentle, and low, an excellent thing in woman.

If there be more, more woeful, hold it in,
  For I am almost ready to dissolve,
    Hearing of this.
      - King Lear (Albany at V, iii) [Suffering]

Jesters do oft prove prophets.
      - King Lear (Regan at V, iii)
        [Jesting : Prophets]

Know my name is lost,
  By treason's tooth bare-gnawn and canker-bit;
    Yet am I noble as the adversary
      I come to cope.
      - King Lear (Edgar at V, iii) [Treason]

O our lives' sweetness,
  That we the pain of death would hourly die
    Rather than die at once!
      - King Lear (Edgar at V, iii) [Death]

Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
      - King Lear (Albany at V, iii) [Speech]

The gods are just, and of our pleasant vices
  Make instruments to plague us.
      - King Lear (Edgar at V, iii)
        [Gods : Proverbs : Vice]
