More Great Quotes From Henry V October 19, 2015 12:00 AM | Tagged as Emma Thompson, Henry V, Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh, Shakespeare Play charms

Here is the next batch of great quotes.  I'm saving my favorites for the last two batches.  Here is this weeks:  

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit; and, upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry! England and Saint George!' (3.1.31)

Would I were in an alehouse in London! I would give all my fame for a pot of ale, and safety. (3.2.13)

Men of few words are the best men. (3.2.41)

Give them great meals of beef and iron and steel, they will eat like wolves and fight like devils.

I thought upon one pair of English legs
Did march three Frenchmen. (3.7.166)

You may as well say, that ’s a valiant flea that dare eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion. (3.7.130)

The hum of either army stilly sounds,
That the fixed sentinels almost receive
The secret whispers of each other’s watch;
Fire answers fire, and through their paly flames
Each battle sees the other’s umbered face;
Steed threatens steed, in high and boastful neighs
Piercing the night’s dull ear, and from the tents
The armourers, accomplishing the knights,
With busy hammers closing rivets up,
Give dreadful note of preparation. (4.Chorus.6)

There is some soul of goodness in things evil,
Would men observingly distil it out. (4.1.59)

Every subject’s duty is the king’s; but every subject’s soul is his own. (4.1.231)

I think the king is but a man, as I am: the violet smells to him as it doth to me. (4.1.106)

Winding up days with toil and nights with sleep. (4.1.330)

But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive. (4.3.31)

There is occasions and causes why and wherefore in all things. (5.1.50)

All hell shall stir for this. (5.1.111)

God, the best maker of all marriages,
Combine your hearts in one. (5.2.388)

If he be not fellow with the best king, thou shalt find the best king of good fellows. (5.2.410)

Thus far, with rough and all-unable pen,
Our bending author hath pursued the story,
In little room confining mighty men,
Mangling by starts the full course of their glory.
Small time, but in that small most greatly lived
This star of England. Fortune made his sword,
By which the world's best garden he achieved,
And of it made his son imperial lord. (Epilogue)
