Strana 78 - Who buzzeth in mine ears I am a spirit ? Be I a devil, yet God may pity me ; Ay, God will pity me, if I repent.
Strana 75 - O! coward conscience, how dost thou afflict me. The lights burn blue. It is now dead midnight. Cold fearful drops stand on my trembling flesh. What! do I fear myself? there's none else by Richard loves Richard; that is, I am I.
Strana 229 - Though not ignoble, yet inferior far To gracious fortunes of my tender youth: For there in prime and pride of all my years, By duteous service and deserving love, In secret I possess'da worthy dame, Which hight
Strana 241 - Are forc'd to express our violent passions In riddles and in dreams, and leave the path Of simple virtue, which was never made To seem the thing it is not. Go, go brag You have left me heartless; mine is in your bosom: I hope 'twill multiply love there. You do tremble: Make not your heart so dead a piece of flesh, To fear more than to love me. Sir, be confident : What...

Strana 80 - For God's sake let us sit upon the ground And tell sad stories of the death of kings...
Strana 234 - Happy in this, she is not yet so old But she may learn ; happier than this, She is not bred so dull but she can learn ; Happiest of all, is, that her gentle spirit Commits itself to yours to be directed, As from her lord, her governor, her king.
Strana 101 - Could not but take compassion of my state. Stately and proud, in riches and in train, Whilom I was, powerful, and full of pomp: But what is he whom rule and empery Have not in life or death made miserable? Come, Spencer; come, Baldock, come, sit down by me; Make trial now of that philosophy, That in our famous nurseries of arts Thou suck'dst from Plato and from Aristotle.
Strana 110 - For whatsoever man, woman, or childe, is by the consente of the whole realme established .in the royall seat, so it have not bene injuriously procured by rigour of sword and open force, but quietlye by title, eyther of enherytaunce, succession, lawful bequest, common consent, or eleccion, is undoubtedlye chosen by God to be his deputie...
Strana 117 - And, seeing there was no place to mount up higher, Why should I grieve at my declining fall? — Farewell, fair queen; weep not for Mortimer, That scorns the world, and, as a traveller, Goes to discover countries yet unknown.
