William Shakespeare King Lear Quotes
1 2 3

Although the last, not least.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

Nothing will come of nothing: speak again.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

LEAR: So young, and so untender?
CORDELIA: So young, my lord, and true.
LEAR: Let it be so; thy truth, then, be thy dower:
For, by the sacred radiance of the sun,
The mysteries of Hecate, and the night;
By all the operation of the orbs
From whom we do exist, and cease to be;
Here I disclaim all my paternal care,
Propinquity and property of blood,
And as a stranger to my heart and me
Hold thee, from this, for ever.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

Come not between the dragon and his wrath.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

Come not between the dragon and his wrath.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

It is no vicious blot, murder, or foulness,
No unchaste action, or dishonoured step,
That hath deprived me of your grace and favour;
But even for want of that for which I am richer,
A still-soliciting eye, and such a tongue
As I am glad I have not, though not to have it
Hath lost me in your liking.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

Love is not love
When it is mingled with regards that stand
Aloof from the entire point.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

'Tis the infirmity of his age: yet he hath ever
but slenderly known himself.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 1

Why bastard? wherefore base?
When my dimensions are as well compact,
My mind as generous, and my shape as true,
As honest madam's issue?
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 2

I grow; I prosper:
Now, gods, stand up for bastards!
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 2

This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune, -- often the surfeit of our own behaviour, -- we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars: as if we were villains by necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treachers, by spherical predominance; drunkards, liars, and adulterers, by an enforced obedience of planetary influence.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 2

My father compounded with my mother under the dragon's tail; and my nativity was under Ursa Major; so that it follows, I am rough and lecherous. Tut, I should have been that I am, had the maidenliest star in the firmament twinkled on my bastardizing.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 2

My cue is villanous melancholy, with a sigh like Tom o' Bedlam.
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 2

Who is it that can tell me who I am?
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 4

Ingratitude, thou marble-hearted fiend,
More hideous, when thou show'st thee in a child,
Than the sea-monster!
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 4

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is
To have a thankless child!
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 4

O! let me not be mad, not mad, sweet heaven;
Keep me in temper; I would not be mad!
King Lear
Act 1, Scene 5

Thou whoreson zed! thou unnecessary letter!
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 2

Goose, if I had you upon Sarum plain,
I'd drive ye cackling home to Camelot.
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 2

Down, thou climbing sorrow,
Thy element's below.
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 4

O, sir! You are old;
Nature in you stands on the very verge
Of her confine.
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 4

O, reason not the need: our basest beggars
Are in the poorest thing superfluous:
Allow not nature more than nature needs,
Man's life's as cheap as beast's.
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 4

Let not women's weapons, water-drops,
Stain my man's cheeks!
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 4

I will do such things,--
What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be
The terrors of the earth.
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 4

No, I'll not weep:
I have full cause of weeping; but this heart
Shall break into a hundred thousand flaws,
Or ere I'll weep. O fool, I shall go mad!
King Lear
Act 2, Scene 4
