20 the quote is "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"

It reminds me of the play review that went something like
"He played the King as if in constant fear that someone else would play the ace"

Whetstone, in view of what you say, I’ll leave this thread and let the other one fall off the first page in its natural order. If you’ve got any queries outstanding in that thread, could you please copy and paste them into this thread.

re 18a in the Merry wives of Windsor, George(Thomas) Page is involved in a plot by Falstaff to make an appointment to court Thomas Page wife.
(I last watched this play live on Brownsea Island in the 1970's accompanied by Peacocks and mosquitos who interrupted the proceedings by walking on the stage and biting the audience respectively)

Thanks for all the replies...my knowledge of literature, especially Shakespeare is very poor, hence I struggled.

@Norah(admin)... thanks for being understanding.
