1

I,1,4

While we pursued the horsemen of the north,
He slily stole away and left his men:...

2

I,1,20

Richard hath best deserved of all my sons.
But is your grace dead, my Lord of Somerset?

3

I,1,31

Assist me, then, sweet Warwick, and I will;
For hither we have broken in by force.

4

I,1,34

Thanks, gentle Norfolk: stay by me, my lords;
And, soldiers, stay and lodge by me this night.

5

I,1,39

The queen this day here holds her parliament,
But little thinks we shall be of her council:...

6

I,1,47

Then leave me not, my lords; be resolute;
I mean to take possession of my right.

7

I,1,83

I am thine.

8

I,1,85

'Twas my inheritance, as the earldom was.

9

I,1,92

It must and shall be so: content thyself.

10

I,1,109

Will you we show our title to the crown?
If not, our swords shall plead it in the field.

11

I,1,126

Sons, peace!

12

I,1,140

'Twas by rebellion against his king.

13

I,1,143

What then?

14

I,1,148

He rose against him, being his sovereign,
And made him to resign his crown perforce.

15

I,1,156

Why whisper you, my lords, and answer not?

16

I,1,171

Henry of Lancaster, resign thy crown.
What mutter you, or what conspire you, lords?

17

I,1,181

Confirm the crown to me and to mine heirs,
And thou shalt reign in quiet while thou livest.

18

I,1,212

This oath I willingly take and will perform.

19

I,1,215

Now York and Lancaster are reconciled.

20

I,1,218

Farewell, my gracious lord; I'll to my castle.

21

I,2,298

Why, how now, sons and brother! at a strife?
What is your quarrel? how began it first?

22

I,2,301

About what?

23

I,2,304

Mine boy? not till King Henry be dead.

24

I,2,309

I took an oath that he should quietly reign.

25

I,2,313

I shall be, if I claim by open war.

26

I,2,315

Thou canst not, son; it is impossible.

27

I,2,329

Richard, enough; I will be king, or die.
Brother, thou shalt to London presently,...

28

I,2,348

Ay, with my sword. What! think'st thou that we fear them?
Edward and Richard, you shall stay with me;...

29

I,2,363

What, with five thousand men?

30

I,2,369

Five men to twenty! though the odds be great,
I doubt not, uncle, of our victory....

31

I,4,436

The army of the queen hath got the field:
My uncles both are slain in rescuing me;...

32

I,4,473

My ashes, as the phoenix, may bring forth
A bird that will revenge upon you all:...

33

I,4,482

O Clifford, but bethink thee once again,
And in thy thought o'er-run my former time;...

34

I,4,502

So triumph thieves upon their conquer'd booty;
So true men yield, with robbers so o'ermatch'd.

35

I,4,551

She-wolf of France, but worse than wolves of France,
Whose tongue more poisons than the adder's tooth!...

36

I,4,593

That face of his the hungry cannibals
Would not have touch'd, would not have stain'd with blood:...

37

I,4,620

Open Thy gate of mercy, gracious God!
My soul flies through these wounds to seek out Thee.
