O, full of danger is the duke of Gloucester, And the queen’s sons and brothers haught and proud, And were they to be ruled, and not to rule, This sickly land might solace as before. (Act 2, Scene 3, lines 29–32)

Ay me! I see the ruin of my house. The tiger now hath seized the gentle hind. Insulting tyranny begins to jut Upon the innocent and aweless throne. Welcome, destruction, blood, and massacre. I see, as in a map, the end of all. (Act 2, Scene 4, lines 51–56)

Come, come, my boy. We will to sanctuary. (Act 2, Scene 4, line 68)
