From worthy Edward, King of Albion,
My lord and sovereign, and thy vowed friend,
I come, in kindness and unfeigned love,
First to do greetings to thy royal person,
And then to crave a league of amity,
And lastly to confirm that amity
With nuptial knot, if thou vouchsafe to grant
That virtuous Lady Bona, thy fair sister,
To England's King in lawful marriage.
(The Third Part Of King Henry The Sixth)
More Quotes from William Shakespeare:Well could I curse away a winter's night,Though standing naked on a mountain top,Where biting cold would never let grass grow,And think it but a minute spent in sport.
Conscience is but a word that cowards use, Devised at first to keep the strong in awe.
A very pleasing night to honest men.
Thy due from me
Is tears and heavy sorrows of the blood
Which nature, love, and filial tenderness,
Shall, O dear father, pay thee plenteously.
My comfort is, that old age, that ill layer-up of beauty, can do no more spoil upon my face.
Fortune brings in some boats that are not steered.
