Authors: Shakespeare - Richard II Quotes, Famous Quotations
1 2 3 4
Old John of Gaunt, time-honoured Lancaster.
Richard II, 1. 1
Yea, but not change his spots: take but my shame.
And I resign my gage. My dear dear lord,
The purest treasure mortal times afford
Is spotless reputation: that away,
Men are but gilded loam or painted clay.
A jewel in a ten-times-barred-up chest
Is a bold spirit in a loyal breast.
Mine honour is my life; both grow in one:
Take honour from me, and my life is done.
Richard II, 1. 1
We were not born to sue, but to command.
Richard II. 1. 1
The language I have learned these forty years,
My native English, now I must forego:
And now my tongue's use is to me no more
Than an unstringed viol or a harp.
Richard II, 1. 3
How long a time lies in one little word!
Four lagging winters and four wanton springs
End in a word: such is the breath of kings.
Richard II, 1. 3
Things sweet to taste prove in digestion sour.
Richard II. 1. 3
Must I not serve a long apprenticehood
To foreign passages, and in the end,
Having my freedom, boast of nothing else
But that I was a journeyman to grief?
Richard II, 1. 3
All places that the eye of heaven visits
Are to a wise man ports and happy havens.
Teach thy necessity to reason thus;
There is no virtue like necessity.
Richard II, 1. 3
O! who can hold a fire in his hand
By thinking on the frosty Caucasus?
Or cloy the hungry edge of appetite
By bare imagination of a feast?
Or wallow naked in December snow
By thinking on fantastic summer's heat?
O, no! the apprehension of the good
Gives but the greater feeling to the worse.
Richard II, 1. 3
The tongues of dying men
Enforce attention like deep harmony.
Richard II. 2. 1
