I do not know
  What kind of my obedience I should tender.
    More than my all is nothing; nor my prayers
      Are not words holy hallowed, nor my wishes
        More worth than empty vanities; yet prayers and wishes
          Are all I can return.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Anne Bullen at II, iii) [Prayer]

Verily
  I swear 'tis better to be lowly born
    And range with humble livers in content
      Than to be perked up in a glist'ring grief
        And wear a golden sorrow.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Anne Bullen at II, iii)
        [Contentment : Sorrow]

Alas! sir,
  In what have I offended you? What cause
    Hath my behaviour given to your displeasure?
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Queen Katharine at II, iv) [Proverbs]

I do believe
  (Induced by potent circumstances) that
    You are mine enemy; and make my challenge
      You shall not be my judge.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Katherine at II, iv) [Enemies]

Sir, I am about to weep; but, thinking that
  We are a queen (or long have dreamed so), certain
    The daughter of a king, my drops of tears
      I'll turn to sparks of fire.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Katherine at II, iv) [Tears]

Therefore I say again
  I utterly abhor, yea, from my soul
    Refuse you for my judge, whom yet once more
      I hold my most malicious for and think not
        At all a friend to truth.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Katherine at II, iv) [Judges]

You are not to be taught
  That you have many enemies that know not
    Why they are so, but like to village curs
      Bark when their fellows do.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (King Henry at II, iv) [Enemies]

Heaven is above all yet; there sits a judge
  That no king can corrupt.

Like the lily
  That once was mistress of the field and flourished,
    I'll hang my head and perish.

Now I think on't,
  They should be good men, their affairs are righteous;
    But all hoods make not monks.

O, good my lord, no Latin!
  I am not such a truant since my coming
    As not to know the language I have lived in.
      A strnage tongue makes my cause more strnage, suspicious.
        Pray speak in English.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Katherine at III, i) [Linguists]

Orpheus with his lute made trees,
  And the mountain tops that freeze,
    Bow themselves when he did sing.
      To his music plants and flowers
        Ever sprung, as sun and showers
          There had made a lasting spring.
            Every thing that heard him play,
              Even the billows of the sea,
                Hung their heads, and then lay by.
                  In sweet music is such art,
                    Killing care and grief of heart
                      Fall asleep, or hearing die.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Women at III, i) [Music]

A peace above all earthly dignities,
  A still and quiet conscience.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth

But in this point
  All his tricks founder and he brings his physic
    After his patient's death: the king already
      Hath married the fair lady.

By that sin fell the angels.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth

Cromwell, I did not think to shed a tear
  In all my miseries; but thou hast forced me
    (Out of thy honest truth) to play the woman.

Farewell
  The hopes of court; my hopes in heaven do dwell.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Wolsey at III, ii) [Hope]

I have touched the highest point of all my greatness,
  And from that full meridian of my glory
    I haste now to my setting.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Wolsey at III, ii) [Greatness]

I have ventured,
  Like little wanton boys that swim on bladders,
    This many summers in a sea of glory,
      But far beyond my depth. My high-blown pride
        At length broke under me, and now has left me,
          Weary and old with service, to the mercy
            Of a rude stream that must for ever hide me.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Wolsey at III, ii) [Glory : Pride]

I know myself now, and I feel within me
  A peace above all earthly dignities,
    A still and quiet conscience.

Let's dry our eyes: and thus far hear me, Cromwell,
  And when I am forgotten, as I shall be,
    And sleep in dull cold marble, when no mention
      Of me more must be heard of, say I taught thee;
        Say, Wolsey, that once trod the ways of glory
          And sounded all the depths and shoals of honor,
            Found thee a way (out of his wrack) to rise in,
              A sure and safe one, though thy master missed it.
      - The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Wolsey at III, ii) [Teaching]

Love thyself last, cherish those hearts that hate thee;
  Corruption wins not more than honesty.

My high-blown pride
  At length broke under me, and now has left me
    Weary and old with service.

Now if you can blush and cry guilty, cardinal
  You'll show a little honesty.

  Is that poor man that hangs on princes' favours!
