1

II,3,981

All which time
Before the gods my knee shall bow my prayers
To them for you.

2

III,2,1643

My noble brother!

3

III,2,1646

Sir, look well to my husband's house; and—

4

III,2,1648

I'll tell you in your ear.

5

III,4,1762

O my good lord,
Believe not all; or, if you must believe,
Stomach not all. A more unhappy lady,
If this division chance, ne'er stood between,
Praying for both parts:
The good gods me presently,
When I shall pray, 'O bless my lord and husband!'
Undo that prayer, by crying out as loud,
'O, bless my brother!' Husband win, win brother,
Prays, and destroys the prayer; no midway
'Twixt these extremes at all.

6

III,4,1782

Thanks to my lord.
The Jove of power make me most weak, most weak,
Your reconciler! Wars 'twixt you twain would be
As if the world should cleave, and that slain men
Should solder up the rift.

7

III,6,1866

Hail, Caesar, and my lord! hail, most dear Caesar!

8

III,6,1868

You have not call'd me so, nor have you cause.

9

III,6,1883

Good my lord,
To come thus was I not constrain'd, but did
On my free will. My lord, Mark Antony,
Hearing that you prepared for war, acquainted
My grieved ear withal; whereon, I begg'd
His pardon for return.

10

III,6,1891

Do not say so, my lord.

11

III,6,1895

My lord, in Athens.

12

III,6,1908

Ay me, most wretched,
That have my heart parted betwixt two friends
That do afflict each other!

13

III,6,1931

Is it so, sir?
