Tut, I can counterfeit the deep tragedian,
  Speak and look back, and pry on every side,
    Tremble and state at wagging of a straw;
      Intending deep suspicion, ghastly looks . . .
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Buckingham at III, v) [Acting]

He doth entreat your grace, my noble lord,
  To visit him to-morrow or next day:
    He is within, with two right reverend fathers,
      Divinely bent to meditation,
        And in no worldly suits would he be moved
          To draw him from his holy exercise.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Catesby at III, vii) [Meditation]

No, so God help me, they spake not a word,
  But, like dumb statues or breathing stones,
    Stared each on other, and looked deadly pale.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Buckingham at III, vii) [Fear]

When holy and devout religious men
  Are at their beads, 'tis much to draw them thence,
    So sweet is zealous contemplation.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Buckingham at III, vii) [Contemplation]

Eighty odd years of sorrow have I seen,
  And each hour's joy wracked with a week of teen.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Duchess of York at IV, i) [Sorrow]

Lo, ere I can repeat this curse again,
  Within so small a time, my woman's heart
    Grossly grew captive to his honey words
      And proved the subject of mine own soul's curse,
        Which hitherto hath held mine eyes from rest;
          For never yet one hour in his bed
            Did I enjoy the golden dew of sleep,
              But with his timorous dreams was still awaked.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Anne at IV, i) [Dreams]

Take all the swift advantage of the hours.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Stanldy at IV, i) [Proverbs]

Ah, Buckingham, now do I play the touch,
  To try if thou be current gold indeed:
    Young Edward lives.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, ii) [Character]

I know a discontented gentleman
  Whose humble means match not his haughty spirit:
    Gold were as good as twenty orators,
      And will, no doubt, tempt him to anything.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Page at IV, ii) [Discontent]

Know'st thou not any whom corrupting gold
  Will tempt unto a close exploit of death?
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, ii) [Temptation]

Tear-falling pity dwells not in this eye.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, ii) [Pity]

I have learned that fearful commenting
  Is leaden servitor to dull delay;
    Delay leads impotent and snail-paced beggary.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, iii) [Delay]

Their lips were four red roses on a stalk,
  Which in their summer beauty kissed each other.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Tyrrel at IV, iii) [Kisses]

A grandam's name is little less in love
  Than is the doting title of a mother;
    They are as children but one step below,
      Even of your metal, of your every blood,
        Of all one pain, save for a night of groans
          Endured of her for whom you bid like sorrow;
            Your children were vexation to your youth,
              But mine shall be a comfort to your age.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, iv) [Childhood]

A grievous burden was thy birth to me;
  Tetchy and wayward was thy infancy;
    Thy schooldays frightful, desp'rate, wile and furious;
      Thy prime of manhood daring, bold, and venturous;
        Thy age confirmed, proud, subtle, sly, and bloody,
          More mild, but yet more harmful--kind in hatred.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Duchess of York at IV, iv)
        [Babyhood : Trials]

An honest tale speeds best being plainly told.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third

        [Honesty : Proverbs : Simplicity]

Harp not on that string, madam; that is past.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, iv) [Proverbs]

I called thee then vain flourish of my fortune;
  I called thee then poor shadow, painted queen,
    The presentation of but what I was,
      The flattering index of a direful pageant,
        One heaved a-high to be hurled down below,
          A mother only mocked with two fair babes,
            A dream of what thou wast, a garish flag,
              To be the aim of every dangerous shot;
                A sign of dignity, a breath, a bubble,
                  A queen in just, only to fill the scene.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Queen Margaret at IV, iv) [Flags]

If ancient sorrow be most reverent,
  Give mine the benefit of seniory
    And let my griefs frown on the upper hand.
      If sorrow can admit society,
        [Tell over your woes again by viewing mine].
          I had an Edward, till a Richard killed him;
            I had a Harry, till a Richard killed him;
              Thou hadst an Edward, till a Richard killed him;
                Thou hadst a Richard, till a Richard killed him.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Queen Margaret at IV, iv) [Sorrow]

Look what is done cannot be now amended:
  Men shall deal unadvisedly sometimes,
    Which after-hours gives leisure to repent.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, iv) [Destiny]

More mild, but yet more harmful; kind in hatred.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Duchess of York at IV, iv) [Proverbs]

Plain and not honest is too harsh a style.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Queen Elizabeth at IV, iv)
        [Honesty : Simplicity]

What! we have many goodly days to see:
  The liquid drops of tears that you have shed
    Shall come again, transformed to orient pearl,
      Advantaging their love with interest
        Of ten times double gain of happiness.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at IV, iv) [Tears]

Fellows in arms, and my most loving friends,
  Bruised underneath the yoke of tyranny,
    Thus far into the bowels of the land
      Have we marched on without impediment;
        And here receive we from our father Stanley
          Lines of fair comfort and encouragement
            The wretched, bloody, and usurping boar,
              That spoiled your summer fields and fruitful vines,
                Swills your warm blood like wash, and makes his trough
                  In your embowelled bosoms--this foul swine
                    Is now even in the centry of this isle,
                      Near to the town of Leicester, as we learn:
                        From Tamworth thither is but one day's march.
                          In God's name cheerly on, courageous friends,
                            To reap the harvest of perpetual peace
                              By this one bloody trial of sharp war.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Richmond at V, ii) [War]

In God's name cheerly on, courageous friends,
  To reap the harvest of perpetual peace
    By this one bloody trial of sharp war.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Richmond at V, ii) [Peace]
