ACT II
Scene II. [Cyprus. Before Othello's Castle.]

'Tis pride that pulls the country down;
90
Then take thine auld cloak about thee.
Some wine, ho!
Cas. Fore God, this is a more exquisite song than the
Other.
95
lago. Will you heart again?
Cas. No, for I hold him unworthy of his place that
does those things. Well, God's above all; and there be
souls must be saved, and there be souls must not be saved.
lago. It's true, good Lieutenant.
100
Cas. For mine own part-no offense to the General, nor
any man of quality-I hope to be saved.
lago. And so do I too, Lieutenant.
Cas. Ay, but, by your leave, not before me. The lieutenant
is to be saved before the ancient. Let's have no
105
more of this; let's to our affairs. God forgive us our sins!
Gentlemen, let's look to our business. Do not think, gentlemen,
I am drunk. This is my ancient. This is my right
hand, and this is my left. I am not drunk now. I can stand
well enough, and speak well enough.
110
All. Excellent well!
Cas. Why, very well then. You must not think then
that I am drunk.
Mon. To the platform, masters. Come, let's set the watch.
115
lago. You see this fellow that is gone before.
He is a soldier fit to stand by Caesar
And give direction; and do but see his vice.
Tis to his virtue a just equinox,
The one as long as th' other. 'Tis pity of him.
120
I fear the trust Othello puts him in,
