KING LEAR Better thou Hadst not been born than not to have pleased me better. KING OF FRANCE Is it but this,--a tardiness in nature Which often leaves the history unspoke That it intends to do? My lord of Burgundy, What say you to the lady? Love's not love When it is mingled with regards that stand Aloof from the entire point. Will you have her? She is herself a dowry. BURGUNDY Royal Lear, Give but that portion which yourself proposed, And here I take Cordelia por the hand, Duchess of Burgundy. KING LEAR Nothing: I have sworn; I am firm. BURGUNDY I am sorry, then, you have so lost a father That you must lose a husband. CORDELIA Peace be with Burgundy! Since that respects of fortune are his love, I shall not be his wife.
