But how, my lord, shall we resist it now?

I,1,57

This would drink deep.

3

I,1,59

But what prevention?

4

I,1,61

And a true lover of the holy church.

5

I,1,76

6

I,1,99

The strawberry grows underneath the nettle
And wholesome berries thrive and ripen best
Neighbour'd by fruit of baser quality:
And so the prince obscured his contemplation
Under the veil of wildness; which, no doubt,
Grew like the summer grass, fastest by night,
Unseen, yet crescive in his faculty.

7

I,1,109

But, my good lord,
How now for mitigation of this bill
Urged by the commons? Doth his majesty
Incline to it, or no?

8

I,1,123

How did this offer seem received, my lord?

9

I,1,131

What was the impediment that broke this off?

I,1,135

It is.

11

I,1,139

I'll wait upon you, and I long to hear it.

12

I,2,260

Awake remembrance of these valiant dead
And with your puissant arm renew their feats:
You are their heir; you sit upon their throne;
The blood and courage that renowned them
Runs in your veins; and my thrice-puissant liege
Is in the very May-morn of his youth,
Ripe for exploits and mighty enterprises.
