1

II,1,642

Behind the tuft of pines I met them; never
Saw I men scour so on their way: I eyed them
Even to their ships.

2

II,1,664

By his great authority;
Which often hath no less prevail'd than so
On your command.

3

II,1,748

Beseech your highness, call the queen again.

4

II,1,752

For her, my lord,
I dare my life lay down and will do't, sir,
Please you to accept it, that the queen is spotless
I' the eyes of heaven and to you; I mean,
In this which you accuse her.

5

II,1,764

Good my lord,—

6

II,1,787

I had rather you did lack than I, my lord,
Upon this ground; and more it would content me
To have her honour true than your suspicion,
Be blamed for't how you might.

7

II,1,820

Well done, my lord.

8

II,3,957

You must not enter.

9

II,3,1110

Beseech your highness, give us better credit:
We have always truly served you, and beseech you
So to esteem of us, and on our knees we beg,
As recompense of our dear services
Past and to come, that you do change this purpose,
Which being so horrible, so bloody, must
Lead on to some foul issue: we all kneel.

10

II,3,1168

So please you, sir, their speed
Hath been beyond account.

11

III,2,1334

This your request
Is altogether just: therefore bring forth,
And in Apollos name, his oracle.

12

III,2,1409

What fit is this, good lady?

13

III,2,1439

The higher powers forbid!

14

III,2,1455

Say no more:
Howe'er the business goes, you have made fault
I' the boldness of your speech.
