All's Well That Ends Well: Act 5 Scene 1
Scene I Marseilles. A street.
- [Enter HELENA, Widow, and DIANA, with two
- But this exceeding posting day and night
- Must wear your spirits low; we cannot help it:
- But since you have made the days and nights as one,
- To wear your gentle limbs in my affairs,
- Be bold you do so grow in my requital
- As nothing can unroot you. In happy time;
- [Enter a Gentleman]
- This man may help me to his majesty's ear,
- If he would spend his power. God save you, sir.
- And you.
- Sir, I have seen you in the court of France.
- I have been sometimes there.
- I do presume, sir, that you are not fallen
- From the report that goes upon your goodness;
- An therefore, goaded with most sharp occasions,
- Which lay nice manners by, I put you to
- The use of your own virtues, for the which
- I shall continue thankful.
- What's your will?
- That it will please you
- To give this poor petition to the king,
- And aid me with that store of power you have
- To come into his presence.
- The king's not here.
- Not here, sir!
- Not, indeed:
- He hence removed last night and with more haste
- Than is his use.
- Lord, how we lose our pains!
- ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL yet,
- Though time seem so adverse and means unfit.
- I do beseech you, whither is he gone?
- Marry, as I take it, to Rousillon;
- Whither I am going.
- I do beseech you, sir,
- Since you are like to see the king before me,
- Commend the paper to his gracious hand,
- Which I presume shall render you no blame
- But rather make you thank your pains for it.
- I will come after you with what good speed
- Our means will make us means.
- This I'll do for you.
- And you shall find yourself to be well thank'd,
- Whate'er falls more. We must to horse again.
- Go, go, provide.
