You, cousin. Within these ten days

Read the Quote

Duke Frederick
You, cousin.
Within these ten days if that thou beest found
So near our public court as twenty miles,
Thou diest for it.

Thus do all traitors.
If their purgation did consist in words,
They are as innocent as grace itself.

Rosalind
I do beseech your Grace,
Let me the knowledge of my fault bear with me.

Kill them, cut their throats, possess their houses,
And lead the majesty of law in lyam
To slip him like a hound; alas, alas, say now the King,
As he is clement if th'offender mourn,
Should so much come too short of your great trespass
As but to banish you: whither would you go?

This is the strangers' case
And this your mountainish inhumanity.

The danger of the task you undertake.

But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart;
My will to her consent is but a part.

Your Honor’s players, hearing your amendment

Read the Quote

Messenger
Your Honor’s players, hearing your amendment,
Are come to play a pleasant comedy,
For so your doctors hold it very meet,
Seeing too much sadness hath congealed your blood,
And melancholy is the nurse of frenzy.
Therefore they thought it good you hear a play
And frame your mind to mirth and merriment,
Which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life.

Read the Quote

Iago
Zounds,  sir, you're robbed. For shame, put on your gown!
Your heart is burst. You have lost half your soul.
Even now, now, very now, an old black ram
Is tupping your white ewe. Arise, arise!
Awake the snorting citizens with the bell,
Or else the devil will make a grandsire of you.
Arise, I say!
