The Merchant of Venice Part 1
The beginning of Act II, scene IX
"The Prince of Arragon hath ta'en hid oath, and comes to his election presently." ~Portia
"I am enjoin'd by oath to observe three things: First, never to unfold to anyone which casket't was I choose; next if I fail of the right casket, never in my life to woo a maid in way of marriage: Lastly, if I do fail in fortune of my choice, immediately to leave you and be gone." ~Arragon
" What's here? The portrait of a blinking idiot." "Still more fool I shall appear by the time I linger here: with one fool's head I came to woo, but I go away with two. Sweet, Portia adieu. I'll keep my oath patiently to bear my wroth." ~Arragon
"Where is my lady?" ~Servant "Here What would my lord?" ~Portia
"Madam, there is alighted at your gate a young Venetian, one that comes before to signify the approaching of his lord;" ~Servant "No more, I pray thee: I am half afeard thou wilt say anon he is some kin to thee," ~Portia
"come, come Nerrisa; for I long to see quick cupid's post that comes so mannerly." ~Portia "Bassanio, lord love, if it be thy will it be!" ~Nerrisa
