- I am your butt, and I abide your shot.
- Richard Plantagenet, scene i
- How sweet a thing it is to wear a crown,
Within whose circuit is Elysium,
And all that poets feign of bliss and joy.
- Richard of Gloucester, scene ii
- And many strokes, though with a little axe,
Hew down and fell the hardest-timber'd oak.
- The smallest worm will turn, being trodden on.
- Didst thou never hear
That things ill got had ever bad success?
And happy always was it for that son,
Whose father for his hoarding went to hell?
- Warwick, peace!
Proud setter-up and puller-down of kings!
- Queen Margaret, scene iii
- A little fire is quickly trodden out,
Which being suffer'd, rivers cannot quench.
- Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind;
The thief doth fear each bush an officer.
- Richard of Gloucester, scene vi
