Cordelia: "Sir, do you know me?...
Oh, look upon me sir,
And hold your hands in benediction o'er me" (IV.vii. 48-58)
King Lear: "Pray do not mock me.
I am a very foolish fond old man...I fear I am not in my perfect mind,
Methinks I should know you and know this man,
Yet I am doubtful,...
Do not laugh at me,
For, as I am a man, I think this lady
To be my child Cordelia." (IV.vii.60-69)
