And You Thought the Bard Did Enough With Richard

I've been reading a lot about Richard III lately, and I've been writing a lot about Richard III lately (in my novel in progress, actually about Katherine Woodville, wife to Buckingham), but I haven't been blogging a lot about Richard III lately. To compensate somewhat, here's a fun game, courtesy of Gabriele and Alianore and The Shakespeare Quote Generator:

Suggested new motto of the Richard III Society:

Follow your spirit, and, upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry, Richard III and Saint George! (England)

Why Richard III was so soft on Margaret Beaufort:

Banish plump Margaret, and banish all the world. (Jack)

William Colyngbourne takes pride in his verse:

Not marble, nor the gilded Richard III
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme. (monuments)

Fatherly advice from Henry Tudor:

Neither a borrower, nor a Richard III be. (lender)

A Ricardian novel in a nutshell:

Never was a story of more woe
Than this of Anne, and her Richard III. (Juliet, Romeo)

Not only did Richard III have bad dreams the night before Bosworth, he snored too.

We have heard the Richard III at midnight (chimes)
