  • My liege, I am advised what I say; Neither disturb’d with the effect of wine, Nor, heady-rash, provok’d with raging ire, Albeit my wrongs might make one wiser mad.
  • Anon, I wot not by what strong escape, He broke from those that had the guard of him; And, with his mad attendant and himself, Each one with ireful passion, with drawn swords, Met us again, and, madly bent on us, Chased us away; till, raising of more aid, We came again to bind them: then they fled Into this abbey, whither we pursued them: And here the abbess shuts the gates on us, And will not suffer us to fetch him out, Nor send him forth that we may bear him hence.
