Most strange! But yet most truly will I speak

Vincentio, the Duke
Most strange! But yet most truly will I speak:
That Angelo's forsworn, is it not strange?
That Angelo's a murderer, is't not strange?
That Angelo is an adulterous thief,
An hypocrite, a virgin-violator,
Isabella
Is it not strange? And strange?
Vincentio, the Duke
Nay, it is ten times strange.
Isabella
It is not truer he is Angelo
Than this is all as true as it is strange;
Nay, it is ten times true, for truth is truth
To th' end of reck'ning.
