  You cannot, if my heart were in your hand;Nor shall not, whilst'tis in my custody.



  O,beware,my lord,of jealousy;It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock The meat it feeds on;that cuckold lives in bliss Who,certain of his fate,loves not his wronger;But, O,what damned minutes tells he o'er Who dotes, yet doubts,suspects, yet strongly loves!

  OTHELLO O misery!


  Poor and content is rich and rich enough,But riches fineless is as poor as winter To him that ever fears he shall be poor.Good heaven,the souls of all my tribe defend From jealousy!


  Why, why is this?Think'st thou I'ld make a lie of jealousy,To follow still the changes of the moon With fresh suspicions?No;to be once in doubt Is once to be resolved:exchange me for a goat,When I shall turn the business of my soul To such exsufflicate and blown surmises,Matching thy inference.'Tis not to make me jealous to say my wife is fair,feeds well,loves company,Is free of speech,sings,plays and dances well;Where virtue is,these are more virtuous:Nor from mine own weak meritswill I draw the smallest fear or doubt of her revolt ;For she had eyes, and chose me. No,Iago;I'll see before I doubt;when I doubt, prove;And on the proof,there is no more but this,——Away at once with love or jealousy!


  I am glad of it;for now I shall have reason To show the love and duty that I bearyou With franker spirit:therefore, as I am bound,Receive it from me.I speak not yet of proof.Look to your wife;observe her well with Cassio;Wear your eye thus,not jealous nor secure:I would not have your free and noble nature,Out of self-bounty,be abused;look to't:I know our country disposition well;In Venice they do let heaven see the pranks They dare not show their husbands;their best conscience Is not to leave't undone, but keep't unknown.

  OTHELLO Dost thou say so?


  She did deceive her father,marrying you;And when she seem'd to shake and fear your looks,She loved them most.

  OTHELLO And so she did.


  Why, go to then;She that,so young, could give out such a seeming,To sealher father's eyes up close as oak-He thought 'twas witchcraft——but I am much to blame;I humbly do beseech you of your pardon For too much loving you.

  OTHELLO I am bound to thee for ever.

  IAGO I see this hath a little dash'd your spirits.

  OTHELLO Not a jot,not a jot.


  I' faith,I fear it has.I hope yod will consider what is spoke Comes from my love.But I do see you're moved:I am to pray you not to strain my speech To grosser issues nor to larger reach Than to suspicion.

  OTHELLO I will not.


  Should you do so,my lord,My speech should fall into such vile success as my thoughts aim not at.Cassio's my worthy friend——My lord,I see you're moved.


  No, not much moved:I do not think but Desdemona's honest.


  Long live she so! and long live you to think so!


  And yet,how nature erring from itself,——


  Ay, there's the point:as——to be bold with you——Not to affect many proposedmatches Of her own clime,complexion,and degree,Whereto we see in all things nature tends——Foh! one may smell in such a will most rank ,Foul disproportion thoughts unnatural.But Pardon me;I do not in position Distinctly speak of her;though I may fear Her will,recoiling to her better judgment,May fall to match you with her country forms And happily repent.


  Farewell,farewell:If more thou dost perceive,let me know more;Set on thy wife to observe:leave me ,Iago:

  IAGO[Going] My lord, I take my leave.


  Why did I marry?This honest creature doubtless Sees and knows more, much more, than he unfolds.


  [Returning] My lord,I would I might entreat your honour

  To scanthis thing no further;leave it to time:Though it be fit that Cassio have his place,For sure, he fills it up with great ability,Yet,if you please to hold him off awhile,You shall by that perceive him and his means:Note,if your lady strain his entertainment With any strong or vehementimportunity;Much will be seen in that.In the mean time,Let me be thought too busy in my fears——As worthy cause I have to fear I am——And hold her free, I do beseech your honour.

  OTHELLO Fear not my government.

  IAGO I once more take my leave.[Eexit]


  This fellow's of exceeding honesty,And knows all qualities,with a learned spirit,Of human dealings.If I do prove her haggard,Though that her jesses were my dear heartstrings,I'ld whistle her off and let her down the wind,To pray at fortune.Haply,for I am black And have not those soft parts of conversation That chamberers have,or for I am declined Into the valeof years,——yet that's not much——She's gone.I am abused;and my relief Must be to loathe her.O curse of marriage,That we can call these delicate creatures ours,And not their appetites! I had rather be a toad,And live upon the vapour of a dungeon,Than keep a corner in the thing I love For others'uses.Yet,'tis the plague of great ones;Prerogatived are they less than the base;'Tis destiny unshunnable,like death:Even then this forked plague is fated to us when we do quicken ,Desdemona comes:

  [Re-enter DESDEMONA and EMILIA]

  If she be false, O, then heaven mocks itself!I'll not believe't.


  How now, my dear Othello!Your dinner,and the generousislanders By you invited,do attend your presence.

  OTHELLO I am to blame.

  DESDEMONA Why do you speak so faintly?Are you not well?

  OTHELLO I have a pain upon my forehead here.


  'Faith,that's with watching;'twill away again:Let me but bind it hard,within this hour It will be well.


  Your napkin is too little:[He putsthe handkerchief from him ;and it drops]let it alone.Come,I'll go in with you.


  I am very sorry that you are not well.[Exeunt OTHELLO and DESDEMONA]


  I am glad I have found this napkin:This was her first remembrancefrom the Moor:My wayward husband hath a hundred times Woo'dme to steal it;but she so loves the token,For he conjured her she should ever keep it,That she reserves it evermore about her to kiss talk to.I'll have the work ta'en out ,And give't Iago:what he will do with it Heaven knows,not I;I nothing but to please his fantasy.

  [Re-enter IAGO]
