Erroneous vassals! the great King of Kings
  Hath in the table of his law commanded
    That thou shalt do no murder. Will you then
      Spurn at his edict, and fulfil a man's?
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv) [Murder]

I passed (methought) the melancholy flood,
  With that sour ferryman which poets write of,
    Unto the kingdom of perpetual night.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv) [Death]

My friend, I spy some pity in thy looks.
  O, if thine eye be not a flatterer,
    Come thou on my side, and entreat for me
      As you would beg, were you in my distress.
        A begging prince what beggar pities not?
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv) [Pity]

O Lord! methought what pain it was to drown!
  What dreadful noise of waters in mine ears!
    What sights of ugly death within mine eyes!
      Methoughts I saw a thousand fearful wracks;
        A thousand men that fishes gnawed upon;
          Wedges of gold, great anchors, heaps of pearl,
            Inestimable stones, unvalued jewels,
              All scatt'red in the bottom of the sea:
                Some lay in dead men's skulls, and in the holes
                  Where eyes did once inhabit, there were crept
                    (As 'twere in scorn of eyes) reflecting gems,
                      That wooed the slimy bottom of the deep
                        And mocked the dead bones that lay scatt'red by.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv) [Fish : Water]

O, do not slander him, for he is kind.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv) [Character]

O, I have passed a miserable night,
  So full of fearful dreams, of ugly sights,
    That, as I am a Christian faithful man,
      I would not spend another such a night
        Though 'twere to buy a world of happy days--
          So full of dismal terror was the time.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv) [Dreams]

Sorrow breaks seasons and reposing hours,
  Makes the night morning and the noontide night:
    Princes have but their titles for their glories,
      An outward honor for an inward toil;
        And for unfelt imaginations
          They often feel a world of restless cares;
            So that between their titles and low name
              There's nothing differs but the outward fame.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Brakenbury at I, iv) [Sorrow]

The urging of that word 'judgment' hath bred a kind of remorse in me.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Second Murderer at I, iv) [Judgment]

'Tis a blushing shame-faced spirit that mutinies in a man's bosom. It fills a man full of obstacles. It made me once restore a purse of gold that (by chance) I found. It beggars any man that keeps it.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Second Murderer at I, iv) [Conscience]

What is my offense?
  Where is the evidence that doth accuse me?
    What lawful quest have given their verdict up
      Unto the frowning judge? or who pronounced
        The bitter sentence of poor Clarence's death
          Before I be convict by course of law?
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv) [Judges]

Ah, that deceit should steal such gentle shapes,
  And with a virtuous vizor hide deep vice!
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Duchess of York at II, ii)
        [Deceit : Proverbs]

Truly, the hearts of men are full of fear:
  You cannot reason (almost) with a man
    That looks not heavily and full of dread.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Second Citizen at II, iii) [Fear]

When clouds are seen wise men put on their cloaks;
  When great leaves fall then winter is at hand.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Third Citizen at II, iii)
        [Proverbs : Storms : Sunset]

When clouds are seen, wise men put on their cloaks;
  When great leaves fall, then winter is at hand;
    When the sun sets, who doth not look for night?
      Untimely storms makes men expect a dearth.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Third Citizen at II, iii)
        [Proverbs : Storms : Sunset]

'Ay,' quoth my uncle Gloucester,
  'Small herbs have grace, great weeds do grow apace.'
    And since, methinks, I would not grow so fast,
      Because sweet flow'rs are slow and weeds make haste.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (York at II, iv) [Growth]

Small herbs have grace; great weeds do grow apace.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Duke of York at II, iv) [Weeds]

But say, my lord, it were not regist'red,
  Methinks the truth should live from age to age,
    As 'twere retailed to all posterity,
      Even to the general all-ending day.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Prince Edward at III, i) [Truth]

Death makes no conquest of this conqueror,
  For now he lives in fame, though not in life.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Prince Edward at III, i) [Fame]

God keep me from false friends!
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Prince Edward at III, i) [Proverbs]

O, 'tis a perilous boy,
  Bold, quick, ingenious, forward, capable:
    He is all the mother's, from the top to toe.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at III, i) [Childhood]

O, my lord,
  You said that idle weeds are fast in growth:
    The prince my brother hath outgrown me far.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (York at III, i) [Growth]

'Tis a vile thing to die, my gracious lord,
  When men are unprepared and look not for it.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Catesby at III, ii) [Death]

Thou art a traitor.
  Off with his head! Now by Saint Paul I swear
    I will not dine until I see the same.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at III, iv)
        [Punishment : Treason]

Doubt not, my lord, I'll play the orator
  As if the golden fee for which I plead
    Were for myself--and so, my lord, adieu.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Buckingham at III, v) [Oratory]

So smooth he daubed his vice with show of virtue
  That, his apparent open guilt omitted--
    I mean, his conversation with Shore's wife--
      He lived from all attainder of suspects.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at III, v) [Hypocrisy]
