I,2,316

My life itself, and the best heart of it,
Thanks you for this great care: I stood i' the level...

I,2,338

Lady mine, proceed.

By my life,

Things done well,
And with a care, exempt themselves from fear;...

I,4,791

My lord chamberlain,

To him that does best: God forbid else. Cardinal,...

To his own portion! and what expense by the hour...

V,1,2846

But little, Charles;
Nor shall not, when my fancy's on my play....
