  Scene One

  [Venice,a street. Enter RODERIGO and IAGO]

  RODERIGO

  Tush!never tell me; Itake it much unkindly That thou,Iago, who hast had my purse As if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this.

  IAGO

  'Sblood, but you will not hear me;If everI did dream of such a matter,abhorme.

  RODERIGO

  Thou told'stme thou didsthold him in thy hate.

  IAGO

  Despise me, ifI do not.Three great onesof the city,In personalsuit to make me his lieutenant,Off-capp' d to him: and, by the faithof man,I know my price,Iam worth no worse a place:But he; as loving his own pride and purposes,Evades them,witha bombast circumstance Horribly stuff'dwith epithets of war;And, in conclusion,Nonsuits my mediators; for,(Certes), says he,'I have already chosemy office r'.And what was he?Forsooth, a great arithmetician,One MichaelCassio, a Florentine,A fellow almost damn'din a fair wife;That never set a squadronin the field,Nor the divisionof a battle knows More than a spinster; unlessthe bookish theoric,Wherein the toged consulscan propose As masterly as he:mere prattle,without practise,Is all his soldiership. But he, sir, had the election:And I,of whom his eyes had seen the proof At Rhodes,at Cyprus and on other grounds Christian and heathen,must be be-lee' d and calm'd By debitor and creditor: thiscounter-caster.He,in good time, must his lieutenant be,And I—God blessthe mark!—his Moorship's ancient.

  RODERIGO

  By heaven,Iratherwould have been his hangman.

  IAGO

  Why, there's no remedy;'tis thecurse of service Preferment goes by letter and affection,And not by old gradation, where each second Stood heir to the first. Now, sir, be judge yourself,Wheth Iinany just termam affined To love the Moor.

  RODERIGO

  I would not follow him then.

  IAGO

  O, sir, content you;I follow him to serve my turn upon him:We cannot all be masters, nor all masters Cannot be truly follow'd. You shall mark Many a duteous and knee-crooking knave,That,doting on his own obsequious bondage,Wears out his time, much like his master's ass,Fornoughtbutprovender, andwhenhe'sold,cashier'd:Whip me suchhonest knaves.Others there are Who, trimm'd in forms and visage of duty,Keep yet their hearts attending on themselves,And,throwing butshowsof service on their lords,Do well thriveby them and when they have lined their coats Dothemselveshomage:these fellows have some soul;And such a one doI profess myself For, sir,It is as sure as you are Roderigo,Were I the Moox,I would not be Iago:In following him,I follow but myself;Heaven is my judge, notI for love and duty,But seeming so,for my peculiar end:For when my outward action doth demonstrate The native act and figure ofmy heart In compliment extern,'tisnot long after ButI will wear myheart upon my sleeve For daws to peck at:Iam not whatI am.

  RODERIGO

  What a full fortune does the thicklips owe If he can carry't thus!

  IAGO

  Call up her father,Rouse him:make after him,poison his delight,Proclaim him in the streets; incense her kinsmen,And,though he in a fertile climate dwell,Plague him with flies: though that his joy be joy,Yet throw such change so fvexationon't,As itmay lose some colour.

  RODERIGO

  Here is her father's house; I'llcall aloud.

  IAGO

  Do, with like timorous accent and dire yell As when, by night and negligence, the fire Is spied in populous cities.

  RODERIGO

  What,ho,Brabantio!Signior Brabantio,ho!

  IAGO

  Awake!what,ho,Brabantio!thieves!thieves!tjoeves!Look toyour house, your daughter and your bags!Thieves! thieves!

  [BRABANTIO appears above,at a window]

  BRABANTIO

  What is the reason of this terrible summons?What is the matter there?

  RODERIGO

  Signior,is all your family within?

  IAGO

  Are your doors lock'd?

  BRABANTIO

  Why, whereforeask you this?

  IAGO

  'Zounds,sir, you're robb'd; forshame,puton your gown;Your heart is burst, you have lost half your soul;Even now, now, very now, an old black ram Is toppingyour white ewe.Arise,arise;Awake the snorting citizenswith thebell,Or else the devil will make a grandsire of you:Arise, Isay.
