shakespear play about a king and three sisters
the land needs a new leader, so we shall decide who will rule the biggest portion of land by seeing which of you loves me most.
father, I love you more than words can say. More than the sun and the moon and life itself.
how can one love thee more than I? mine love for thee is like the tulip's love for the morning light as the sun cometh ov'r the horizon.
what shall I say? its hard for me to think of a response stronger than that.
Cordelia, It´s time for you to speak.
father, I has't nothing to sayeth. I doth not love thee any more than any infant loves their father. I depend on thee for life, shelter, and necessities any infant needeth.
Cordelia, these outbursts art unacceptable. And by the power invested in me, I disown thee and hereby banish thee from mine castle.
Lear, please, have mercy on your daughter. She doesn't love you least, but she doesn't love you any more than any daughter loves her father.
get out of my sight!
