Sir,
I am about to weep; but, thinking that...

III,1,1636

How now!

18

III,1,1639

Would they speak with me?

19

III,1,1641

Pray their graces
To come near....

20

III,1,1651

Your graces find me here part of a housewife,
I would be all, against the worst may happen....

My lords, I thank you both for your good wills;...

24

III,1,1715

In England
But little for my profit: can you think, lords,...

25

III,1,1727

How, sir?

26

III,1,1734

Ye tell me what ye wish for both,—my ruin:
Is this your Christian counsel? out upon ye!...

Upon my soul, two reverend cardinal virtues;...

III,1,1751

Ye turn me into nothing: woe upon ye
And all such false professors! would you have me—...

III,1,1763

Have I lived thus long—let me speak myself,
Since virtue finds no friends—a wife, a true one?...

30

III,1,1778

My lord, I dare not make myself so guilty,
To give up willingly that noble title...

31

III,1,1783

If I have used myself unmannerly;...

IV,2,2559

O Griffith, sick to death!
My legs, like loaden branches, bow to the earth,...

If well, he stepp'd before me, happily...

35

IV,2,2576

Alas, poor man!

IV,2,2632

After my death I wish no other herald,
No other speaker of my living actions,...
