Guildenstern says that Everybody in the country feeds on the king's greatness and wisdom.

We will ourselves provide.

Most holy and religious fear it is

To keep those many many bodies safe

That live and feed upon your Majesty.

Rosencrantz says that when the King suffers, everybody suffers.

Each small annexment, petty consequence,

Attends the boist'rous ruin. Never alone

Did the king sigh, but with a general groan.
