Have you not made an universal shout,
And do you now put on your best attire?
And do you now strew flowers in his way,
Run to your houses; fall upon your knees,
XXIII. REPROACHING WITH WANT OF FRIENDSHIP.
Cassius. Do not presume too much upon my love,
do that I shall be sorry for. Brutus. You have done that you should be sorry for. There is no terror, Cassius, in your threats; For I am arm'd so strong in honesty, That they pass by me, as the idle wind, Which I respect not. I did send to you
For certain sums of gold, which you denied me ;
No, Cassius, I had rather coin my heart,
And drop my blood for drachmas, than to wring
To you for gold to pay my legions,
Which you denied me. Was that done like Cassius?
XXIV. REPROACHING WITH WANT OF MANLINESS.
O PROPER Stuff!
This is the very painting of your fears;
Authoriz'd by her grandam. Shame itself!
XXV.-FEAR FROM A DREADFUL OBJECT.
ANGELS and ministers of grace defend us!—
Thou com'st in such a questionable' shape
Save me, and hover o'er me with your wings,
You heavenly guards!-what would your gracious figure?
XXVI. HORROR AT A DREADFUL APPARITION.
How ill this taper burns! ha! who comes here? I think it is the weakness of my eyes,
That shapes this monstrous apparition
It comes upon me! Art thou any thing?
Art thou some god, some angel, or some devil,
1 "Questionable" here means inviting question.
XXVII.-DEEP OR SETTLED GRIEF.
SEEMS, madam! nay, it is: I know not seems,
XXVIII. GRIEF DEPLORING LOSS OF HAPPINESS.
Он, now for ever,
Farewell the tranquil mind! farewell content!
Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!
XXIX. GRIEF APPROACHING TO DISTRACTION.
THOU canst not speak of what thou dost not feel:
Wert thou as young as I, Juliet thy love,
An hour but married, Tybalt murder'd,
Doating like me, and like me banished,
Then mightst thou speak, then mightst thou tear thy hair, And fall upon the ground as I do now
Taking the measure of an unmade grave.
Romeo and Juliet.
XXX.-GRIEF CHOKING EXPRESSION.
Macduff. My children too!
Rosse.-Wife, children, servants, all that could be found!
Let's make us medicines of our great revenge,
Macduff. He has no children!
What, all my pretty ones? Did you say all?
Macduff. I shall.
But I must also feel it as a man.
I cannot but remember such things were
That were most precious to me: did heav'n look on,
XXXI.-REMORSE AND REPROACH.
Он, when the last account 'twixt heaven and earth Is to be made, then shall this hand and seal
Witness against us to damnation !
How oft the sight of means to do ill deeds
I faintly broke with thee of Arthur's death;
And thou to be endeared to a king,
Mad'st it no conscience to destroy a prince.-King John
King Henry. How fares my lord? speak, Beaufort, to thy sovereign.
Cardinal Beaufort. If thou be'st Death I'll give thee
Enough to purchase such another island,
So thou wilt let me live and feel no pain.
King Henry.-Ah, what a sign it is of evil life, When death's approach is seen so terrible!
Warwick.-Beaufort, it is thy sovereign speaks to thee.
Died he not in his bed? where should he die?
Alive again? then show me where he is,
I'll give a thousand pounds to look upon
Comb down his hair; look! look! it stands upright,
King Henry.-O thou eternal Mover of the heavens,
That lays strong siege unto this wretch's soul,
Warwick. See how the pangs of death do make him grin.
