  • No, uncle; but our crosses on the way
    Have made it tedious, wearisome, and heavy
    I want more uncles here to welcome me.
  • Duke of Gloucester. Welcome, dear cousin, my thoughts' sovereign
    The weary way hath made you melancholy.

    Prince Edward. No, uncle; but our crosses on the way
    Have made it tedious, wearisome, and heavy
    I want more uncles here to welcome me.

  • God keep me from false friends! but they were none.
  • God keep me from false friends! but they were none.
  • Duke of Gloucester. Sweet prince, the untainted virtue of your years
    Hath not yet dived into the world's deceit
    Nor more can you distinguish of a man
    Than of his outward show; which, God he knows,
    Seldom or never jumpeth with the heart.
    Those uncles which you want were dangerous;
    Your grace attended to their sugar'd words,
    But look'd not on the poison of their hearts :
    God keep you from them, and from such false friends!

    Prince Edward. God keep me from false friends! but they were none.

  • I thank you, good my lord; and thank you all.

    To tell us whether they will come or no!
  • Lord Mayor of London. God bless your grace with health and happy days!

    Prince Edward. I thank you, good my lord; and thank you all.
    I thought my mother, and my brother York,
    Would long ere this have met us on the way
    Fie, what a slug is Hastings, that he comes not
    To tell us whether they will come or no!

  • I do not like the Tower, of any place.
    Did Julius Caesar build that place, my lord?
  • Duke of Gloucester. Where it seems best unto your royal self.
    If I may counsel you, some day or two
    Your highness shall repose you at the Tower:
    Then where you please, and shall be thought most fit
    For your best health and recreation.

    Prince Edward. I do not like the Tower, of any place.

  • Is it upon record, or else reported

    Which, since, succeeding ages have re-edified.

    Prince Edward. Is it upon record, or else reported
    Successively from age to age, he built it?

  • But say, my lord, it were not register'd,
    Methinks the truth should live from age to age,
    As 'twere retail'd to all posterity,
    Even to the general all-ending day.
  • Duke of Buckingham. Upon record, my gracious lord.

    Prince Edward. But say, my lord, it were not register'd,

  • That Julius Caesar was a famous man;
    With what his valour did enrich his wit,
    His wit set down to make his valour live
    Death makes no conquest of this conqueror;
    For now he lives in fame, though not in life.
    I'll tell you what, my cousin Buckingham,--
  • Duke of Gloucester. I say, without characters, fame lives long.
    [Aside]
    Thus, like the formal vice, Iniquity,
    I moralize two meanings in one word.

    Prince Edward. That Julius Caesar was a famous man;
    With what his valour did enrich his wit,
    His wit set down to make his valour live
    Death makes no conquest of this conqueror;
    For now he lives in fame, though not in life.
    I'll tell you what, my cousin Buckingham,--

  • An if I live until I be a man,
    I'll win our ancient right in France again,
    Or die a soldier, as I lived a king.
  • Duke of Buckingham. What, my gracious lord?

    Prince Edward. An if I live until I be a man,
    I'll win our ancient right in France again,
    Or die a soldier, as I lived a king.

  • [To KING RICHARD III]
    Let me sit heavy on thy soul to-morrow!
    Think, how thou stab'dst me in my prime of youth
    At Tewksbury: despair, therefore, and die!
    [To RICHMOND]
    Be cheerful, Richmond; for the wronged souls
    Of butcher'd princes fight in thy behalf
    King Henry's issue, Richmond, comforts thee.
  • Richmond (Henry VII). Good lords, conduct him to his regiment:
    I'll strive, with troubled thoughts, to take a nap,
    Lest leaden slumber peise me down to-morrow,
    When I should mount with wings of victory:
    Once more, good night, kind lords and gentlemen.
    [Exeunt all but RICHMOND]
    O Thou, whose captain I account myself,
    Look on my forces with a gracious eye;
    Put in their hands thy bruising irons of wrath,
    That they may crush down with a heavy fall
    The usurping helmets of our adversaries!
    Make us thy ministers of chastisement,
    That we may praise thee in the victory!
    To thee I do commend my watchful soul,
    Ere I let fall the windows of mine eyes:
    Sleeping and waking, O, defend me still!

    Prince Edward. [To KING RICHARD III]
    Let me sit heavy on thy soul to-morrow!
    Think, how thou stab'dst me in my prime of youth
    At Tewksbury: despair, therefore, and die!
    [To RICHMOND]
    Be cheerful, Richmond; for the wronged souls
    Of butcher'd princes fight in thy behalf
    King Henry's issue, Richmond, comforts thee.
