Sin universal justice
Her eye must be fed. Iago to Roderigo, IvsR
Oh heavy ignorance! Thou praisest the worst best. Desdemona to Iago, IvsR
I am not merry; but I do beguileThe thing I am by seeming otherwise. Desdemona, IvsR
“I’ll […] make the Moor thank me, love me, and reward meFor making him egregiously an ass. Iago
If I were now to die,Twere now to be most happy, for I fearMy soul hath her content so absoluteThat not another comfort like to thisSucceeds in unknown fate. Othello, IvsR
You may relish him more in the soldier than in the scholar. Cassio
Notwithstanding, with my personal eyeWill I look to’t. Cassio, IvsR
Reputation, reputation, reputation! O, I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial. Cassio
You rise to play and go to bed to work Iago
With as little a web as this I will ensnare as great a fly as Cassio, Iago
“[p]referment goes by letter and affection, / And not by old gradation Iago
Let it not gall your patience, good Iago, / That I extend my manners. ‘Tis my breeding / That gives me this bold show of courtesy Cassio
