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.”

    “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see.
    She has deceived her father, and may thee.”
  3. #3
    “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.”

    Killing myself, to die upon a kiss.”

  6. #6
    “Ay, let her rot, and perish and be damned
    tonight, for she shall not live. No, my heart is turned

    world hath not a sweeter creature! She might lie by
    an emperor’s side and command him tasks.”
