    A monologue from the play by William ShakespeareBUCKINGHAM: Nay, Sir Nicholas,
    Let it alone; my state now will but mock me.
    When I came hither I was Lord High Constable
    And Duke of Buckingham; now poor Edward Bohun.
    Yet I am richer than my base accusers,
    That never knew what truth meant: I now seal it;
    And with that blood will make ’em one day groan for’t.

    My noble father, Henry of Buckingham,
    Who first raised head against usurping Richard,
    Flying for succor to his servant Banister,
    Being distressed, was by that wretch betrayed,
    And without trial fell; God’s peace be with him!
    Henry the Seventh succeeding, truly pitying
    My father’s loss, like a most royal prince
    Restored me to my honors; and out of ruins
    Made my name once more noble. Now his son,
    Henry the Eighth, life, honor, name, and all
    That made me happy, at one stroke has taken
    For ever from the world. I had my trial,
    And must needs say a noble one; which makes me
    A little happier than my wretched father.
    Yet thus far we are one in fortunes: both
    Fell by our servants, by those men we loved most–
    A most unnatural and faithless service.

    Heaven has an end in all; yet you that hear me,
    This from a dying man receive as certain:
    Where you are liberal of your loves and counsels
    Be sure you be not loose; for those you make friends
    And give your hearts to, when they once perceive
    The least rub in your fortunes, fall away
    Like water from ye, never found again
    But where they mean to sink ye. All good people,
    Pray for me! I must now forsake ye; the last hour
    Of my long weary life is come upon me.
