They do abuse the king that flatter him:...

2

Freely will I speak. Antiochus you fear,...

8

I,2,359

We'll mingle our bloods together in the earth,
From whence we had our being and our birth.

9

I,3,383

You shall not need, my fellow peers of Tyre,
Further to question me of your king's departure:...

If further yet you will be satisfied,
Why, as it were unlicensed of your loves,...

No, Escanes, know this of me,
Antiochus from incest lived not free:...

This king were great, his greatness was no guard...

With me? and welcome: happy day, my lords.

Your griefs! for what? wrong not your prince you love.

For honour's cause, forbear your suffrages:
If that you love Prince Pericles, forbear....

When peers thus knit, a kingdom ever stands.
