True hope is swift and flies with swallow's wings;
  Kings it makes gods, and meaner creatures kings.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Richmond at V, ii) [Hope]

A thing devised by the enemy.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third

By the apostle Paul, shadows to-night
  Have struck more terror to the soul of Richard
    Than can the substance of ten thousand soldiers
      Armed in proof and led by shallow Richmond.

For the selfsame heaven
  That frowns on me looks sadly upon him.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii) [Heaven]

For what is he they follow? Truly, gentlemen,
  A bloody tyrant and a homicide;
    One raised in blood and one in blood established;
      One that made means to come by what he hath,
        And slaughtered those that were the means to help him;
          A base foul stone, made precious by the foil
            Of England's chair, where he is falsely set;
              One that hath ever been God's enemy.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Richmond at V, iii) [Tyranny]

Give me a bowl of wine.

Give me another horse! Bind up my wounds!

Hark! I hear their drum.
  Fight, gentlemen of England! Fight, bold yeomen!
    Draw, archers, draw your arrows to the head!
      Spur your proud horses hard, and ride in blood!
        Amaze the welkin with your broken staves!
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii) [War]

I did but dream
  O coward conscience, how dost thou afflict me!
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii) [Conscience]

I shall despair. There is no creature loves me;
  And if I die, no should will pity me.
    And, wherefore should they, since that I myself
      Find in myself no pity to myself?
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii) [Pity]

Let not our babbling dreams affright our souls;
  Conscience is but a work that cowards use,
    Devised at first to keep the strong in awe:
      Our strong arms be our conscience, swords our law!
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii) [Conscience]

My conscience hath a thousand several tongues,
  And every tongue brings in a several tale,
    And every tale condemns me for a villain.

O Thou, whose captain I account myself,
  Look on my forces with a gracious eye;
    Put in their hands thy bruising irons of wrath,

        The usurping helmets of our adversaries;
          Make us thy ministers of chastisement,
            That we may praise thee in the victory.
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Richmond at V, iii) [War]

The early village cock
  Hath twice done salutation to the morn:

The weary sun hath made a golden set
  And by the bright tract of his fiery car
    Gives token of a goodly day to-morrow.

         (Richmond at V, iii) [Twilight]

There is no creature loves me;
  And if I die, no soul will pity me.

To thee I do commend my watchful soul
  Ere I let fall the windows of mine eyes:
    Sleeping and waking.

    And make poor England weep in streams of blood!

        That would with treason wound this fair land's peace!
          Now civil wounds are stopped, peace lives again:
            That she may long live here, God say amen!
      - The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Richmond at V, v) [Books (Last Lines)]

And let their heirs (God, if thy will be so)
  Enrich the time to come with smooth-faced peace,
    With smiling plenty, and fair prosperous days!

         (Richmond at V, v) [Future]

Let come what will, I mean to bear it out,
  And either live with glorious victorie,
    Or die with fame renown'd for chivalrie:
      He is not worthy of the honey-comb
        That shuns the hives because the bees have stings;
          That likes me best that is not got with ease,
            Which thousand dangers do accompany;
              For nothing can dismay our Regal mind;
                Which aims at nothing but a golden Crown,
                  The only upshot of mine enterprises.
      - The Tragedy of Locrine (Hubba at III, iv),
        Shakespeare Aprocypha [Danger]

And writers say, as the most forward bud
  Is eaten by the canker ere it blow,
    Even so by love the young and tender wit
      Is turned to folly, blasting in the bud,
        Losing his verdure even in the prime.
      - The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Valentine at I, i) [Love]

Cease to persuade, my loving Proteus;
  Home-keeping youth have ever homely wits.
