Othello

Here are the Best Quotes from Othello. A book written by one of the greatest writers of all time William Shakespeare.

“O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey’d monster, which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.”- Othello


“The robb’d that smiles, steals something from the thief; He robs himself that spends a bootless grief.”- Othello


“Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls:
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


“But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve. For daws to peck at: I am not what I am.”- Othello


“Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens to the which our wills are gardeners.”- Othello


“It is silliness to live when to live is torment, and then have we a prescription to die when death is our physician.”- Othello


“I hold my peace, sir? no;
No, I will speak as liberal as the north;
Let heaven and men and devils, let them all,
All, all, cry shame against me, yet I’ll speak.”- Othello


“So will I turn her virtue into pitch,
And out of her own goodness make the net
That shall enmesh them all. ”- Othello


“what cannot be saved when fate takes, patience her injury a mockery makes”- Othello


“I understand a fury in your words
But not your words.”- Othello


“Reputation, reputation, reputation! Oh, I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial.”- Othello


“But jealous souls will not be answered so.
They are not ever jealous for the cause,
But jealous for they’re jealous. It is a monster
Begot upon itself, born on itself.”- Othello


“Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty, but seeming so, for my peculiar end: for when my outward action doth demonstrate the native act and figure of my heart in compliment extern, ’tis not long after but I will wear my heart upon my sleeve for daws to peck at: I am not what I am.”


“If it were now to die,
‘Twere now to be most happy, for I fear
My soul hath her content so absolute
That no other comfort, like to this
Succeeds in unknown fate”


“Poor and content is rich, and rich enough;
But riches fineless is as poor as winter
To him that ever fears he shall be poor;–
Good heaven, the souls of all my tribe defend
From jealousy!”


“Speak of me as I am; nothing extenuate,
Nor set down aught in malice: then must you speak
Of one that loved not wisely but too well;
Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought”


“As I am an honest man, I thought you had received some bodily wound. There is more sense in that than in reputation. Reputation is an idle and most false imposition, oft got without merit and lost without deserving.”


“To mourn a mischief that is past and gone
Is the next way to draw new mischief on.”


“When devils do the worst sins, they first put on the pretense of goodness and innocence, as I am doing now.”


“To be poor but content is actually to be quite rich. But you can have endless riches and still be as poor as anyone if you are always afraid of losing your riches.”
