King Henry VI. Part III.
 
 
1
    How sweet a thing it is to wear a crown,
Within whose circuit is Elysium
And all that poets feign of bliss and joy!
          King Henry VI. Part III. Act i. Sc. 2.
2
    And many strokes, though with a little axe,
Hew down and fell the hardest-timbered oak.
          King Henry VI. Part III. Act ii. Sc. 1.
3
    The smallest worm will turn, being trodden on.
          King Henry VI. Part III. Act ii. Sc. 2.
4
    Didst thou never hear
That things ill got had ever bad success?
And happy always was it for that son
Whose father for his hoarding went to hell?
          King Henry VI. Part III. Act ii. Sc. 2.
5
    Warwick, peace,
Proud setter up and puller down of kings!
          King Henry VI. Part III. Act iii. Sc. 3.
6
    A little fire is quickly trodden out;
Which, being suffered, rivers cannot quench.
          King Henry VI. Part III. Act iv. Sc. 8.
7
    Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind;
The thief doth fear each bush an officer.
          King Henry VI. Part III. Act v. Sc. 6.
