What fire is in mine ears? Can this be true?Stand I condemned for pride and scorn so much?Contempt, farewell, and maiden pride, adieu!No glory lives behind the back of such.And Benedick, love on; I will requite thee,Taming my wild heart to thy loving hand.If thou dost love, my kindness shall incite theeTo bind our loves up in a holy band.For others say thou dost deserve, and IBelieve it better than reportingly. Beatrice talking to herself
And Benedick is not the unhopefulest husband that I know.Thus far can I praise him: he is of a noble strain, of approvedvalor, and confirmed honesty. I will teach you how to humoryour cousin that she shall fall in love with Benedick.—AndI, with your two helps, will so practice on Benedickthat, in despite of his quick wit and his queasy stomach, heshall fall in love with Beatrice. If we can do this, Cupid is nolonger an archer; his glory shall be ours, for we are the onlylove gods. Go in with me, and I will tell you my drift. Don Pedro talking to claudio and hero
Princes and counties! Surely, a princely testimony, a goodlycount, Count Comfect, a sweet gallant, surely! Oh, that Iwere a man for his sake! Or that I had any friend would bea man for my sake! But manhood is melted into curtsies,valor into compliment, and men are only turned intotongue, and trim ones too. He is now as valiant as Herculesthat only tells a lie and swears it. I cannot be a man withwishing, therefore I will die a woman with grieving. Beatrice talking to Benedict
I cannot bid you bid my daughter live—That were impossible—but, I pray you both,Possess the people in Messina hereHow innocent she died. And if your loveCan labor ought in sad invention,Hang her an epitaph upon her tombAnd sing it to her bones. Sing it tonight.Tomorrow morning come you to my house,And since you could not be my son-in-law,Be yet my nephew. My brother hath a daughter,Almost the copy of my child that’s dead,And she alone is heir to both of us.Give her the right you should have given her cousin,And so dies my revenge. Leonato talking to Claudio and borachio
I’ll tell thee what, Prince: a college of wit-crackers cannotflout me out of my humor. Dost thou think I care for a satireor an epigram? No. If a man will be beaten with brains, heshall wear nothing handsome about him. In brief, since I dopurpose to marry, I will think nothing to any purpose thatthe world can say against it, and therefore never flout at mefor what I have said against it. For man is a giddy thing, andthis is my conclusion.—For thy part, Claudio, I did think tohave beaten thee, but in that thou art like to be my kinsman,live unbruised, and love my cousin. Benedick and is talking to Don prado and claudio
His wife Anne Hathaway
