All of Shakespeare’s plays.
An if they live, I hope I need not fear.
But come, my lord; and with a heavy heart,
Thinking on them, go I unto the Tower.
I fear no uncles dead.
My lord protector needs will have it so.
My Lord of York will still be cross in talk:
Uncle, your grace knows how to bear with him.
A beggar, brother?
Ay, brother, to our grief, as it is yours:
Too late he died that might have kept that title,
Which by his death hath lost much majesty.
Richard of York! how fares our loving brother?
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.
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,--
What say you, uncle?
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.
Is it upon record, or else reported
Successively from age to age, he built it?
I do not like the Tower, of any place.
Did Julius Caesar build that place, my lord?
Good lords, make all the speedy haste you may.
Exeunt CARDINAL and HASTINGS
Say, uncle Gloucester, if our brother come,
Where shall we sojourn till our coronation?
Welcome, my lord: what, will our mother come?
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!
God keep me from false friends! but they were none.
No, uncle; but our crosses on the way
Have made it tedious, wearisome, and heavy
I want more uncles here to welcome me.
