ACT III
Scene III. [Cyprus. The garden of the Castle.]

To such exsufflicate and blown surmises,
210
matching thy inference. 'Tis not to make me jealous
To say my wife is fair, feeds well, loves company,
Is free of speech, sings, plays, and dances well.
Where virtue is, these are more virtuous.
Nor from mine own weak merits will I draw
215
The smallest fear or doubt of her revolt,
For she had eyes, and chose me. No, Iago;
I'll see before I doubt; when I doubt, prove;
And on the proof there is no more but this
Away at once with love or jealousy!
220
Iago. I am glad of it; for now I shall have reason
To show the love and duty that I bear you
With franker spirit. Therefore, as I am bound,
Receive it from me. I speak not yet of proof.
Look to your wife; observe her well with Cassio;
225
Wear your eye thus, not jealous nor secure.
I would not have your free and noble nature,
Out of self-bounty, be abused. Look to't.
I know our country disposition well:
In Venice they do let heaven see the pranks
230
They dare not show their husbands; their best conscience
Is not to leave't undone, but keep't unknown.
Oth. Dost thou say so?
lago. She did deceive her father, marrying you;
And when she seemed to shake and fear your looks,
235
She loved them most.
Oth. And so she did.
Iago. Why, go to thenl
She that, so young, could give out such a seeming
To seel her father's eyes up close as oak
