1

II,2,757

It pleaseth you, my royal father, to express
My commendations great, whose merit's less.

2

II,2,765

Which, to preserve mine honour, I'll perform.
[Enter a Knight; he passes over, and his Squire]
presents his shield to the Princess]

3

II,2,769

A knight of Sparta, my renowned father;
And the device he bears upon his shield
Is a black Ethiope reaching at the sun
The word, 'Lux tua vita mihi.'

4

II,2,776

A prince of Macedon, my royal father;
And the device he bears upon his shield
Is an arm'd knight that's conquer'd by a lady;
The motto thus, in Spanish, 'Piu por dulzura que por fuerza.'

5

II,2,782

The third of Antioch;
And his device, a wreath of chivalry;
The word, 'Me pompae provexit apex.'

6

II,2,787

A burning torch that's turned upside down;
The word, 'Quod me alit, me extinguit.'

7

II,2,792

The fifth, an hand environed with clouds,
Holding out gold that's by the touchstone tried;
The motto thus, 'Sic spectanda fides.'

8

II,2,799

He seems to be a stranger; but his present is
A wither'd branch, that's only green at top;
The motto, 'In hac spe vivo.'

9

II,3,829

But you, my knight and guest;
To whom this wreath of victory I give,
And crown you king of this day's happiness.

10

II,3,853

By Juno, that is queen of marriage,
All viands that I eat do seem unsavoury.
Wishing him my meat. Sure, he's a gallant gentleman.

11

II,3,859

To me he seems like diamond to glass.

12

II,3,882

What is it
To me, my father?

13

II,3,892

Alas, my father, it befits not me
Unto a stranger knight to be so bold:
He may my proffer take for an offence,
Since men take women's gifts for impudence.

14

II,3,898

[Aside] Now, by the gods, he could not please me better.

15

II,3,901

The king my father, sir, has drunk to you.

16

II,3,903

Wishing it so much blood unto your life.

17

II,3,905

And further he desires to know of you,
Of whence you are, your name and parentage.

18

II,3,912

He thanks your grace; names himself Pericles,
A gentleman of Tyre,
Who only by misfortune of the seas
Bereft of ships and men, cast on this shore.

19

II,5,1090

Why, sir, say if you had,
Who takes offence at that would make me glad?

20

II,5,1111

Yes, if you love me, sir.

21

III,2,1411

O dear Diana,
Where am I? Where's my lord? What world is this?

22

III,4,1476

It is my lord's.
That I was shipp'd at sea, I well remember,
Even on my eaning time; but whether there
Deliver'd, by the holy gods,
I cannot rightly say. But since King Pericles,
My wedded lord, I ne'er shall see again,
A vestal livery will I take me to,
And never more have joy.

23

III,4,1489

My recompense is thanks, that's all;
Yet my good will is great, though the gift small.

24

V,3,2534

Voice and favour!
You are, you are—O royal Pericles!

25

V,3,2553

O, let me look!
If he be none of mine, my sanctity
Will to my sense bend no licentious ear,
But curb it, spite of seeing. O, my lord,
Are you not Pericles? Like him you spake,
Like him you are: did you not name a tempest,
A birth, and death?

26

V,3,2561

That Thaisa am I, supposed dead
And drown'd.

27

V,3,2564

Now I know you better.
When we with tears parted Pentapolis,
The king my father gave you such a ring.

28

V,3,2579

Blest, and mine own!

29

V,3,2581

I know you not.

30

V,3,2586

'Twas Helicanus then.

31

V,3,2592

Lord Cerimon, my lord; this man,
Through whom the gods have shown their power; that can
From first to last resolve you.

32

V,3,2612

Lord Cerimon hath letters of good credit, sir,
My father's dead.
