Hail to thee, lady! and the grace of heaven,
  Before, behind thee, and on every hand,
    Enwheel thee round!
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, i) [Grace]

He hath achieved a maid
  That paragons description and wild fame;
    One that excels the quirks of blazoning pens,
      And in th' essential vesture of creation
        Does tire the ingener.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, i) [Women]

I am not merry; but I do beguile
  The thing I am by seeming otherwise.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Desdemona at II, i) [Merriment]

If it were now to die,
  'Twere now to be most happy; for I fear
    My soul hath her content so absolute
      That not another comfort like to this
        Succeeds in unknown fate.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Othello at II, i) [Contentment]

O gentle lady, do not put me to't,
  For I am nothing if not critical.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice (Iago at II, i)
        [Criticism]

O most lame and impotent conclusion!
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Desdemona at II, i) [Results]

These are old fond paradoxes to make fools laugh i' th' alehouse.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Desdemona at II, i) [Paradoxes]

Which thing to do,
  If this poor trash of Venice, whom I trash
    For his quick hunting, stand the putting on,
      I'll have our Michael Cassio on the hip,
        Abuse him to the Moor in the rank garb
          (For I fear Cassio with my nightcap too),
            Make the Moor thank me, love me, and reward me
              For making him egregiously an ass
                And practicing upon his peace and quiet
                  Even to madness.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice (Iago at II, i)
        [Deceit]

You are pictures out of doors,
  Bells in your parlors, wildcats in your kitchens,
    Saints in your injuries, devils being offended,
      Players in your housewifery, and housewives in your beds.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice (Iago at II, i)
        [Women]

But men are men; the best sometimes forget.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii) [Proverbs]

Come, come, good wine is a good familiar creature if it be well used. Exclaim no more against it.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii)
        [Proverbs : Wine and Spirits]

Dull not device by coldness and delay.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii) [Proverbs]

Every inordinate cup is unblessed, and the ingredient is a devil.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii) [Proverbs : Temperance]

He's a soldier fit to stand by Caesar
  And give direction; and do but see his vice.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii) [Soldiers]

How poor are they that have not patience!
  What wound did ever heal but by degrees?
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii) [Patience : Proverbs]

I have very poor and unhappy brains for drinking; I could well wish courtesy would invent some other custom of entertainment.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii) [Drinking]

I remember a mass of things, but nothing distinctly; a quarrel, but nothing wherefore. O God, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains! that we should with joy, pleasance, revel, and applause transform ourselves into beasts!
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii) [Intemperance]

I will ask him for my place again: he shall tell me I am a drunkard! Had I as many mouths as Hydra, such an answer would stop them all. To be now a sensible man, by and by a fool, and presently a beast! O strange! Every inordinate cup is unblest, and the ingredient is a devil.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii) [Intemperance]

Let's teach ourselves that honorable stop,
  Not to outsport discretion.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Othello at II, iii) [Discretion]

O I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part, sir, of myself, and what remains is bestial.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii) [Proverbs]

O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil!
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii) [Wine and Spirits]

O, I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial. My reputation, Iago, my reputation!
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii) [Reputation]

Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii) [Proverbs : Time]

Reputation is an idle and most false imposition; oft got without merit and lost without deserving.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii) [Proverbs : Reputation]

Though other things grow fair against the sun,
  Yet fruits that blossom first will first be ripe.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii) [Fruits]
