Desdemona Quotes

Six of the best book quotes from Desdemona
  1. #1
    “My noble father,
    I do perceive here a divided duty.
    To you I am bound for life and education.
    My life and education both do learn me
    How to respect you. You are the lord of duty.
    I am hitherto your daughter. But here’s my
    husband,
    And so much duty as my mother showed
    To you, preferring you before her father,
    So much I challenge that I may profess
    Due to the Moor my lord.”

    “She, in spite of nature,
    Of years, of country, credit, every thing,
    To fall in love with what she feared to look on!
    It is a judgment maimed and most imperfect
    That will confess perfection so could err
    Against all rules of nature.”

    “Ay, let her rot, and perish and be damned
    tonight, for she shall not live. No, my heart is turned
    to stone. I strike it, and it hurts my hand. O, the
    world hath not a sweeter creature! She might lie by
    an emperor’s side and command him tasks.”
  6. #6
    “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see.
    She has deceived her father, and may thee.”
