“Put away / These dispositions, that of late transform you / From what you rightly are.” (1.4.224-6)


“Lear’s shadow.” (1.4.237)


“This is not Lear: / Doth Lear walk thus? speak thus? Where are his eyes?” (1.4.231-2)


“That, like an engine, wrench'd my frame of nature / From the fix'd place.” (1.4.280-1)


“My lord, I am guiltless, as I am ignorant / Of what hath moved you.” (1.4.286-7)
