cordelia quotes - 10 of
What shall Cordelia speak? Love, and be silent.
Upon such sacrifices, my Cordelia,
The gods themselves throw incense.
Fairest Cordelia, that art most rich being poor,
Most choice forsaken, and most loved despised, ...
All perform their tragic play,
There struts Hamlet, there is Lear, That's Ophelia, that Cordelia;
Great thing of us forgot!
I cannot draw a cart, nor eat dried oats;
If it be man's work, I'll do't.
Why, he was met even now
As mad as the vexed sea, singing aloud, ...
I want that glib and oily art
To speak and purpose not, since what I well intend, I'll do't before I speak.
You have begot me, bred me, loved me. I
Return those duties back as are right fit, ...
Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides,
Who covers faults at last shame them derides.
