1

I,2,235

Sir, I would advise you to shift a shirt; the
violence of action hath made you reek as a
sacrifice: where air comes out, air comes in:
there's none abroad so wholesome as that you vent.

2

I,2,241

Hurt him! his body's a passable carcass, if he be
not hurt: it is a thoroughfare for steel, if it be not hurt.

3

I,2,247

Stand you! You have land enough of your own: but
he added to your having; gave you some ground.

4

I,2,256

Sir, as I told you always, her beauty and her brain
go not together: she's a good sign, but I have seen
small reflection of her wit.

5

I,2,266

I'll attend your lordship.

6

II,1,856

What got he by that? You have broke his pate with
your bowl.

7

II,1,883

Did you hear of a stranger that's come to court to-night?

8

II,1,887

There's an Italian come; and, 'tis thought, one of
Leonatus' friends.

9

II,1,891

One of your lordship's pages.

10

II,3,978

Your lordship is the most patient man in loss, the
most coldest that ever turned up ace.

11

II,3,981

But not every man patient after the noble temper of
your lordship. You are most hot and furious when you win.

12

II,3,986

Day, my lord.

13

IV,3,2843

Good my liege,
The day that she was missing he was here:
I dare be bound he's true and shall perform
All parts of his subjection loyally. For Cloten,
There wants no diligence in seeking him,
And will, no doubt, be found.

14

IV,3,2853

So please your majesty,
The Roman legions, all from Gallia drawn,
Are landed on your coast, with a supply
Of Roman gentlemen, by the senate sent.

15

IV,3,2859

Good my liege,
Your preparation can affront no less
Than what you hear of: come more, for more
you're ready:
The want is but to put those powers in motion
That long to move.
