Dishonesty of Abigail Williams by Jessica Soohoo
"Oh, I marvel how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be—"
She is blackening my name in the village! She is telling lies about me! She is a cold, sniveling woman, and you bend to her!
I have confessed myself! Is there no good penitence but it be public? God does not need my name nailed upon the church! God sees my name; God knows how black my sins are! It is enough!
You'll speak nothin' of Elizabeth!
is the accuser always holy now? were they born this morning as clean as gods fingers? I'll tell you what's walking Salem vengeance is walking Salem.
John Proctor had an affair with Abigail but here he is saying he knows the girls will lie and not be honest to get things their way
I have been hurt, Mr. Danforth; I have seen my blood runnin’ out! I have been near to murdered every day because I done my duty pointing out the Devil’s people—and this is my reward? To be mistrusted, denied, questioned
Abigail tries to play innocent throughout the whole play even though all she does is lie and manipulate and accuse Elizabeth of witchcraft since she is obsessed with John Proctor still.
John Proctor is talking with Danforth and Parris. Rebecca Nurse is there as well but shows how she is honest all the time. John Proctor has to think of what to say.
John Proctor tells the truth by refusing to lie and confess to the witchcraft. In a way this regained his goodness even after the affair. It shows that after all the dishonesty in the play it still was able to end with him choosing to be honest no matter what it meant.
