Enrico V – William Shakespeare

“The strawberry grows underneath the nettle
And wholesome berries thrive and ripen best
Neighboured by fruit or baser quality:
And so the Prince obscured his contemplation
Under the veil of wildness, which, no doubt,
Grew like the summer grass, fastest by night,
Unseen, yet crescive in his faculty.”

“O, let their bodies follow, my dear liege,
with blood and sword and fire to win your right!”

“If that you will france win,
Then with Scotland first begin.
For once the eagle England being in prey
To her unguarded nest the weasel Scot
Comes sneaking, and so sucks her princely eggs,
Playing the mouse in absence of the cat,
To tame and havoc more than she can eat.”

“While that the armèd hand doth fight abroad,
Th’advisèd head defends itself at home.”

“Either our history shall with full mouth
Speak freely of our acts, or else our grave,
Like Turkish mute, shall have a tongueless mouth,
Not worshipped with a waxen epitaph.”

“….and honour’s thought
Reigns solely in the breast of every man.”

“O England! model to thy inward greatness,
Like little body with a mighty heart,
What moghtst thou do, that honour would thee do,
Were all thy children kind and natural.”

“Base is the slave that pays”

“No King of England if not King of France”

“….men’s faiths are wafer-cakes”

“Once more unto the breach, dear frineds, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead!”

“And sword and shield,
in bloody field,
Doth win immortal fame.”

“The gates of mercy shall be all shut up,
And the fleshed soldier, rough and hard of heart,
With conscience wide as hell, mowing like grass
Your fresh fair virgins, and your flowering infants.”

“…for when lenity and cruelty play for a
kingdom, the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.”

“We see yonder the beginning of the day,
but God knows whether we shall see the end of it.”

“Ay, or more than we should seek after; for
we know enough if we know we are the king’s
subjects. if his cause be wrong, our obedience to
the king wipes the crime of it out of us.”

“O God of battles, steel my soldiers’ hearts;
Possess them not with fear; take from them now
The sense of reckoning, if th’opposed numbers
Pluck thei hearts from them.”

“But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.”

“Perish the man whose mind is backward now!”

“The man that once did sell the lion’s skin
While the beast lived, was killed with hunting him.”
