Favorite Quotes From Henry V October 14, 2015 12:00 AM | Tagged as Henry V, Kenneth Branagh, Shakespeare Charms, Shakespeare Jewelry, William Shakespeare

There are so many great quotes that wI will break them up in groups and add a few every week throughout October.  Here is the first batch:  

O! for a Muse of fire, that would ascend
The brightest heaven of invention!
A kingdom for a stage, princes to act
And monarchs to behold the swelling scene. (Chorus.1)

Can this cockpit hold
The vasty fields of France? or may we cram
Within this wooden O the very casques
That did affright the air at Agincourt? (Chorus.11)

Consideration, like an angel, came
And whipped the offending Adam out of him. (1.1.28)

Turn him to any cause of policy,
The Gordian knot of it he will unloose,
Familiar as his garter: that when he speaks,
The air, a chartered libertine, is still. (1.1.47)

O noble English! that could entertain
With half their forces the full pride of France,
And let another half stand laughing by,
All out of work, and cold for action. (1.2.111)

For so work the honey-bees,
Creatures that by a rule in nature teach
The act of order to a peopled kingdom.
They have a king and officers of sorts;
Where some, like magistrates, correct at home,
Others, like merchants, venture trade abroad,
Others, like soldiers, armèd in their stings,
Make boot upon the summer's velvet buds;
Which pillage they with merry march bring home
To the tent-royal of their emperor. (1.2.186)

Would I were with him, wheresome'er he is, either in heaven or in hell. (2.3.7)

Even at the turning o’ the tide. (2.3.13)

His nose was as sharp as a pen, and a’ babbled of green fields. (2.3.17)

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead!
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favoured rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect. (3.1.1)

And sheathed their swords for lack of argument. (3.1.22)
