914
    And nothing can we call our own but death
And that small model of the barren earth
Which serves as paste and cover to our bones.
For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground
And tell sad stories of the death of kings.
          King Richard II. Act iii. Sc. 2.
915
    Comes at the last, and with a little pin
Bores through his castle wall—and farewell king!

    He is come to open
The purple testament of bleeding war.
          King Richard II. Act iii. Sc. 3.

    And my large kingdom for a little grave,
A little little grave, an obscure grave.
          King Richard II. Act iii. Sc. 3.

    Gave
His body to that pleasant country’s earth,
And his pure soul unto his captain Christ,
Under whose colours he had fought so long.

    A mockery king of snow.
          King Richard II. Act iv. Sc. 1.

    As in a theatre, the eyes of men,
After a well-graced actor leaves the stage,
Are idly bent on him that enters next,
Thinking his prattle to be tedious.
          King Richard II. Act v. Sc. 2.
921
    As for a camel
To thread the postern of a small needle’s eye. 1

    So shaken as we are, so wan with care.
          King Henry IV. Part I. Act i. Sc. 1.
923
    In those holy fields
Over whose acres walked those blessed feet
Which fourteen hundred years ago were nail’d
For our advantage on the bitter cross.
          King Henry IV. Part I. Act i. Sc. 1.
924
    Diana’s foresters, gentlemen of the shade, minions of the moon.
          King Henry IV. Part I. Act i. Sc. 2.
925
    Old father antic the law.
          King Henry IV. Part I. Act i. Sc. 2.
 
Note 1.
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.—Matthew. xix. 24. [back]
