1

I,1,172

[with Cornwall] Dear sir, forbear!

2

I,4,787

Pray, sir, be patient.

3

I,4,799

My lord, I am guiltless, as I am ignorant
Of what hath mov'd you.

4

I,4,817

Now, gods that we adore, whereof comes this?

5

I,4,824

What's the matter, sir?

6

I,4,842

I cannot be so partial, Goneril,
To the great love I bear you—

7

I,4,858

Well, you may fear too far.

8

I,4,877

How far your eyes may pierce I cannot tell.
Striving to better, oft we mar what's well.

9

I,4,880

Well, well; th' event. Exeunt.

10

IV,2,2373

O Goneril,
You are not worth the dust which the rude wind...

11

IV,2,2382

Wisdom and goodness to the vile seem vile;
Filths savour but themselves. What have you done?...

12

IV,2,2405

See thyself, devil!
Proper deformity seems not in the fiend...

13

IV,2,2409

Thou changed and self-cover'd thing, for shame!
Bemonster not thy feature! Were't my fitness...

14

IV,2,2417

What news?

15

IV,2,2421

Gloucester's eyes?

16

IV,2,2428

This shows you are above,
You justicers, that these our nether crimes...

17

IV,2,2440

Where was his son when they did take his eyes?

18

IV,2,2442

He is not here.

19

IV,2,2444

Knows he the wickedness?

20

IV,2,2448

Gloucester, I live
To thank thee for the love thou show'dst the King,...

21

V,1,3047

Our very loving sister, well bemet.
Sir, this I hear: the King is come to his daughter,...

22

V,1,3060

Let's then determine
With th' ancient of war on our proceeding.

23

V,1,3070

I'll overtake you.- Speak.

24

V,1,3079

Stay till I have read the letter.

25

V,1,3083

Why, fare thee well. I will o'erlook thy paper.

26

V,1,3090

We will greet the time. Exit.

27

V,3,3167

Sir, you have show'd to-day your valiant strain,
And fortune led you well. You have the captives...

28

V,3,3188

Sir, by your patience,
I hold you but a subject of this war,...

29

V,3,3213

The let-alone lies not in your good will.

30

V,3,3215

Half-blooded fellow, yes.

31

V,3,3217

Stay yet; hear reason. Edmund, I arrest thee
On capital treason; and, in thine attaint,...

32

V,3,3227

Thou art arm'd, Gloucester. Let the trumpet sound.
If none appear to prove upon thy person...

33

V,3,3242

A herald, ho!

34

V,3,3244

Trust to thy single virtue; for thy soldiers,
All levied in my name, have in my name...

35

V,3,3248

She is not well. Convey her to my tent.
[Exit Regan, led. Enter a Herald.]...

36

V,3,3262

Ask him his purposes, why he appears
Upon this call o' th' trumpet.

37

V,3,3271

Which is that adversary?

38

V,3,3301

Save him, save him!

39

V,3,3306

Shut your mouth, dame,
Or with this paper shall I stop it. [Shows her her letter to...

40

V,3,3313

Most monstrous!
Know'st thou this paper?

41

V,3,3316

Go after her. She's desperate; govern her.

42

V,3,3333

Methought thy very gait did prophesy
A royal nobleness. I must embrace thee....

43

V,3,3338

Where have you hid yourself?
How have you known the miseries of your father?

44

V,3,3362

If there be more, more woful, hold it in;
For I am almost ready to dissolve,...

45

V,3,3380

But who was this?

46

V,3,3387

Speak, man.

47

V,3,3391

Who dead? Speak, man.

48

V,3,3398

Produce their bodies, be they alive or dead.
[Exit Gentleman.]...

49

V,3,3407

Great thing of us forgot!
Speak, Edmund, where's the King? and where's Cordelia?...

50

V,3,3415

Even so. Cover their faces.

51

V,3,3421

Run, run, O, run!

52

V,3,3426

Haste thee for thy life. [Exit Edgar.]

53

V,3,3431

The gods defend her! Bear him hence awhile.

54

V,3,3443

Fall and cease!

55

V,3,3478

He knows not what he says; and vain is it
That we present us to him.

56

V,3,3483

That's but a trifle here.
You lords and noble friends, know our intent....

57

V,3,3510

Bear them from hence. Our present business
Is general woe. [To Kent and Edgar] Friends of my soul, you...

58

V,3,3516

The weight of this sad time we must obey,
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say....
