  • Cassandra. Where is my brother Hector?

  • O, be persuaded! do not count it holy
    To hurt by being just: it is as lawful,
    For we would give much, to use violent thefts,
    And rob in the behalf of charity.
  • Cassandra. The gods are deaf to hot and peevish vows:
    They are polluted offerings, more abhorr'd
    Than spotted livers in the sacrifice.

    Andromache. O, be persuaded! do not count it holy
    To hurt by being just: it is as lawful,
    For we would give much, to use violent thefts,
    And rob in the behalf of charity.

    Lie every man holds dear; but the brave man
    Holds honour far more precious-dear than life.

    How now, young man! mean'st thou to fight to-day?
