Thou dost conspire against thy friend, Iago,
  If thou but think'st him wronged, and mak'st his ear
    A stranger to thy thoughts.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Othello at III, iii) [Conspiracy]

To be once in doubt
  Is once to be resolved.

Trifles light as air
  Are to the jealous confirmations strong
    As proofs of holy writ.

Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing.
  'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
    But he that filches from me my good name
      Robs me of that which not enriches him
        And makes me poor indeed.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at III, iii) [Proverbs : Thieving]

But jealous souls will not be answered so;
  They are not ever jealous for the cause,

      'Tis a monster
        Begot upon itself, born on itself.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Emilia at III, iv) [Jealousy]

What, keep a week away? seven days and nights?
  Eightscore eight hours? and lovers' absent hours,

      O weary reck'ning!

         (Bianca at III, iv) [Love]

If that the earth could teem with woman's tears,
  Each drop she falls would prove a crocodile.
      - Othello the Moor of Venice

It is a creature
  That dotes on Cassio, as 'tis the strumpet's plague
    To beguile many and be beguiled by one.

        [Temptation]

O, she will sing the savageness out of a bear!

Sir, she can turn, and turn, and yet go on,
  And turn again.

They laugh that win!
      - Othello the Moor of Venice

Thou said'st--O, it comes o'er my memory
  As doth the raven o'er the infected house,
    Boding to all!--He had my handkerchief.

But, alas, to make me
  A fixed figure for the time of scorn
    To point his slow unmoving finger at!

Had it pleased heaven
  To try me with affliction, had they rained
    All kinds of sores and shames on my bare head,
      Steeped me in poverty to the very lips,

          I should have found in some place of my soul
            A drop of patience.

Unkindness may do much;
  And his unkindness may defeat my life,
    But never taint my love.

Why, now I see there's mettle in thee; and even from this instant do build on thee a better opinion than ever before.

      May unfold me to him; there stand I in much peril.

Alas, why gnaw you so your nether lip?
  Some bloody passion shakes your very frame.
    These are portents; but yet I hope, I hope,
      They do not point on me.

Are there no stones in heaven
  But what serves for thunder?

But O vain boast!
  Who can control his fate?
