All's Well That Ends Well: Act 3 Scene 1
Scene I Florence. The DUKE's palace.
- [Flourish. Enter the DUKE of Florence attended;
- the two Frenchmen, with a troop of soldiers.]
- So that from point to point now have you heard
- The fundamental reasons of this war,
- Whose great decision hath much blood let forth
- And more thirsts after.
- FIRST LORD
- Holy seems the quarrel
- Upon your grace's part; black and fearful
- On the opposer.
- Therefore we marvel much our cousin France
- Would in so just a business shut his bosom
- Against our borrowing prayers.
- SECOND LORD
- Good my lord,
- The reasons of our state I cannot yield,
- But like a common and an outward man,
- That the great figure of a council frames
- By self-unable motion: therefore dare not
- Say what I think of it, since I have found
- Myself in my incertain grounds to fail
- As often as I guess'd.
- Be it his pleasure.
- FIRST LORD
- But I am sure the younger of our nature,
- That surfeit on their ease, will day by day
- Come here for physic.
- Welcome shall they be;
- And all the honours that can fly from us
- Shall on them settle. You know your places well;
- When better fall, for your avails they fell:
- To-morrow to the field.
- [Flourish. Exeunt]
