Albany. Well, you may fear too far.
Goneril. Safer than trust too far.
The hedge-sparrow fed the cuckoo so long
That it had its head bit off by its young.
The unruly waywardness that infirm and choleric years bring with them.
Idle old man,
That still would manage those authorities
That he hath given away!
O, the difference of man and man!
To thee a woman's services are due.
You see how full of changes his age is.
As you are old and reverend, you should be wise.
Sir, I love you more than words can wield the matter,
Dearer than eyesight, space, and liberty,
Old fools are babes again, and must be used
With checks as flatteries.
To my judgment your highness is not entertained with that ceremonious affection as you were wont.
