Quotations

  • 1593, William Shakespeare, King Henry VI, Part 1: Act III, Scene I:
    And now I fear the fatal prophecy,
    Which in the time of Henry, nam'd the Fifth,
    Was in the mouth of every mocking babe;
    That Henry born at Monmouth should win all;
    And Henry born at Windsor should lose all.
  • 1830 Mary Russell Mitford, Our Village: Fourth Series: Cottage Names:
    Henry now, what a soft swain your Henry is! the proper theme of gentle poesy; a name to fall in love withal; devoted at the font to song and sonnet, and the tender passion; a baptized inamorato; a christened hero. Call him Harry, and see how you ameliorate his condition.
