EMILIA OTHELLO QUOTES

“I understand a fury in your words, but not the words.”

“I have spoke no more than what I know.”

“But I do think it is their husbands’ faults if wives do fall.”

“O, the more angel she, and you the blacker devil!”

“Heaven truly knows that thou art false as hell.”

“Oh, I would thou didst itch from head to foot and I had the scratching of thee.”

“Men are not gods, but wretches who think themselves so.”

“Do not learn of him, Emilia, though he be thy husband.”

“These men that our fathers tell us of do but beget us fools.”

“No, I will speak as liberal as the north.”

“To tell my love”

“You’re my husband, and I’ll love you.”

“O, banish me, my lord, but kill me not!”

“I found it in my chamber. I have a simple mind that delights in dumb things.”

“For that I do suspect the lusty Moor hath leaped into my seat, the thought thereof doth cause my cold affections to stir.”

“By heaven, I would most gladly have forgot it! Thou saidst, it comes o’er my memory, as doth the raven o’er the infected house.”

“But I will not charm my tongue; I am bound to speak.”

“Though I am bound to every act of duty, I am not bound to that all slaves are free to.”

“O, fie upon thee, strumpet!”

“Why, say they are vile and false? As where’s that palace whereinto foul things sometimes intrude not?”

“Good madam, if by me you’ll be advised, let’s not for all the world true men condemn.”

“The world’s a huge thing. It is a great price for a small vice.”

“Good gentlemen, let me have leave to speak. ‘Tis proper I obey him, but not now.”

“But jealousy what might befall your travel, being skilless in these parts.”

“I do think it is their husbands’ faults if wives do fall.”

“Speak you of a cuckold?”

“Alas, poor rogue! I would he had been whipped, then he would have been graced the sooner.”

“No, Iago, I’ll see before I doubt, when I doubt, prove; and on the proof, there is no more but this: away at once with love or jealousy!”

“Heaven truly knows that thou art false as hell.”

“They are all but stomachs, and we all but food; they eat us hungerly, and when they are full they belch us.”
