Richard III

by: William Shakespeare

Act V, scenes iii–v

1

Awake, and think our wrongs in Richard’s bosom Will conquer him! Awake, and win the day. (Act V, Scene iii, lines 152–153)

2

God and good angels fight on Richmond’s side, And Richard fall in height of all his pride. (Act V, Scene iii, lines 187–188)

3

The sweetest sleep and fairest-boding dreams That ever entered in a drowsy head Have I since your departure had, my lords. Methought their souls whose bodies Richard murdered Came to my tent and cried on victory. I promise you, my soul is very jocund In the remembrance of so fair a dream. (Act V, Scene iii, lines 240–246)

4

Slave, I have set my life upon a cast, And I will stand the hazard of the die. I think there be six Richmonds in the field; Five have I slain today instead of him. A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse! (Act V, Scene iv, lines 9–13)

5

God and your arms be praised, victorious friends! The day is ours; the bloody dog is dead. (Act V, Scene v, lines 1–2)
