Othello

  1. 1. OTHELLOI shall not dine at home;I meet the captains at the citadel.DESDEMONAWhy, then, to-morrow night; or Tuesday morn;On Tuesday noon, or night; on Wednesday morn:I prithee, name the time, but let it notExceed three days: in faith, hes penitent;And yet his trespass, in our common reason--Save that, they say, the wars must make examplesOut of their best--is not almost a faultTo incur a private cheque. When shall he come?Tell me, Othello: I wonder in my soul,What you would ask me, that I should deny,Or stand so mammering on. What! Michael Cassio,That came a-wooing with you, and so many a time,When I have spoke of you dispraisingly,Hath taen your part; to have so much to doTo bring him in! Trust me, I could do much,--OTHELLOPrithee, no more: let him come when he will;I will deny thee nothing.DESDEMONAWhy, this is not a boon;Tis as I should entreat you wear your gloves,Or feed on nourishing dishes, or keep you warm,Or sue to you to do a peculiar profitTo your own person: nay, when I have a suitWherein I mean to touch your love indeed,It shall be full of poise and difficult weightAnd fearful to be granted.OTHELLOI will deny thee nothing:Whereon, I do beseech thee, grant me this,To leave me but a little to myself.DESDEMONAShall I deny you? no: farewell, my lord.OTHELLOFarewell, my Desdemona: Ill come to thee straight.DESDEMONAEmilia, come. Be as your fancies teach you;Whateer you be, I am obedient.Exeunt DESDEMONA and EMILIAOTHELLOExcellent wretch! Perdition catch my soul,But I do love thee! and when I love thee not,Chaos is come again.http://shakespeare.mit.edu/othello/full.html
