  • Most royal Majesty,
    I crave no more than hath your Highness offer'd,
    Nor will you tender less.
  • Lear. My Lord of Burgundy,
    We first address toward you, who with this king
    Hath rivall'd for our daughter. What in the least
    Will you require in present dower with her,
    Or cease your quest of love?

    Duke of Burgundy. Most royal Majesty,
    I crave no more than hath your Highness offer'd,
    Nor will you tender less.

  • I know no answer.
  • Lear. Right noble Burgundy,
    When she was dear to us, we did hold her so;
    But now her price is fall'n. Sir, there she stands.
    If aught within that little seeming substance,
    Or all of it, with our displeasure piec'd,
    And nothing more, may fitly like your Grace,
    She's there, and she is yours.

    Duke of Burgundy. I know no answer.

  • Lear. Will you, with those infirmities she owes,
    Unfriended, new adopted to our hate,

    Take her, or leave her?

    Duke of Burgundy. Pardon me, royal sir.
    Election makes not up on such conditions.

  • Royal Lear,
    Give but that portion which yourself propos'd,
    And here I take Cordelia by the hand,
    Duchess of Burgundy.
  • King of France. Is it but this- a tardiness in nature
    Which often leaves the history unspoke
    That it intends to do? My Lord of Burgundy,
    What say you to the lady? Love's not love
    When it is mingled with regards that stands
    Aloof from th' entire point. Will you have her?
    She is herself a dowry.

    Duke of Burgundy. Royal Lear,
    Give but that portion which yourself propos'd,
    And here I take Cordelia by the hand,
    Duchess of Burgundy.

  • I am sorry then you have so lost a father
    That you must lose a husband.
  • I am sorry then you have so lost a father
    That you must lose a husband.
  • Lear. Nothing! I have sworn; I am firm.

    Duke of Burgundy. I am sorry then you have so lost a father
    That you must lose a husband.
