Probal to pondering and certainly the course
To win the Moor once more? For ’tis most simple
Th’ inclining Desdemona to subdue
In any sincere swimsuit. She’s framed as fruitful
Because the free parts: after which for her
To win the Moor, have been’t to resign his baptism,
All seals and symbols of redeemed sin,
His soul is so enfettered to her love
That she might make, unmake, do what she listing,
Whilst her urge for food shall play the god
Along with his weak perform. How am I then a villain
To counsel Cassio to this parallel course
On to his good? Divinity of hell!

And out of her personal goodness make the online
That shall enmesh all of them.
