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

By me that's said or done amiss this night,
Unless self-charity be sometimes a vice,
205
And to defend ourselves it be a sin
When violence assails us.
Oth. Now, by heaven,
My blood begins my safer guides to rule,
And passion, having my best judgment collied,
210
Assays to lead the way. If I once stir
or do but lift this arm, the best of you
Shall sink in my rebuke. Give me to know
flow this foul rout began, who set it on;
And he that is approved in this offense,
215
Though he had twinned with me, both at a birth,
Shall lose me. What! in a town of war,
yet wild, the people's hearts brimful of fear,
To manage private and domestic quarrel?
In night, and on the court and guard of safety?
220
'Tis monstrous. Iago, who began 't?
Mon. If partially af&ned, or leagued in office,
Thou dost deliver more or less than truth,
Thou art no soldier.
Iago. Touch me not so near.
225
I had rather have this tongue cut from my mouth
Than it should do offense to Michael Cassio.
Yet I persuade myself, to speak the truth
Shall nothing wrong him. Thus it is, General.
Montano and myself being in speech,
230
There comes a fellow crying out for help,
And Cassio following him with determined sword
To execute upon him. Sir, this gentleman
Steps in to Cassio and entreats his pause.
Myself the crying fellow did pursue,
