by William Shakespeare

-Kent : I thought the king had more affected the Duke of Albany than Cornwall.

-Gloucester : It did always seem so to us: but now, in the division of the kingdom, it appears not which of the dukes he values most; for equalities are so weighed, that curiosity in neither can make choice of either’s moiety.

-Kent : Is not this your son, my lord?

-Gloucester : His breeding, sir, hath been at my charge: I have so often blushed to acknowledge him, that now I am brazed to it.

-Kent : I cannot conceive you.

-Gloucester : Sir, this young fellow’s mother could: whereupon she grew round-wombed, and had, indeed, sir, a son for her cradle ere she had a husband for her bed. Do you smell a fault?
