  • Your features! Lord warrant us! What features?
  • Your features! Lord warrant us! What features?
  • Touchstone. Come apace, good Audrey; I will fetch up your goats,
    Audrey. And how, Audrey, am I the man yet? Doth my simple feature
    content you?

    Audrey. Your features! Lord warrant us! What features?

  • I do not know what 'poetical' is. Is it honest in deed and
    word? Is it a true thing?
  • Touchstone. When a man's verses cannot be understood, nor a man's
    good wit seconded with the forward child understanding, it
    strikes a man more dead than a great reckoning in a little room.
    Truly, I would the gods had made thee poetical.

    Audrey. I do not know what 'poetical' is. Is it honest in deed and
    word? Is it a true thing?

3 III / 3
  • Do you wish, then, that the gods had made me poetical?
  • Do you wish, then, that the gods had made me poetical?
  • Touchstone. No, truly; for the truest poetry is the most feigning,
    and lovers are given to poetry; and what they swear in poetry may
    be said as lovers they do feign.

    Audrey. Do you wish, then, that the gods had made me poetical?

4 III / 3
  • Would you not have me honest?
  • Would you not have me honest?
  • Touchstone. I do, truly, for thou swear'st to me thou art honest;
    now, if thou wert a poet, I might have some hope thou didst
    feign.

    Audrey. Would you not have me honest?

5 III / 3
  • Well, I am not fair; and therefore I pray the gods make me
    honest.
  • Well, I am not fair; and therefore I pray the gods make me
    honest.
  • Jaques (lord). [Aside] A material fool!

    Audrey. Well, I am not fair; and therefore I pray the gods make me
    honest.

6 III / 3
  • I am not a slut, though I thank the gods I am foul.
  • I am not a slut, though I thank the gods I am foul.
  • Touchstone. Truly, and to cast away honesty upon a foul slut were
    to put good meat into an unclean dish.

    Audrey. I am not a slut, though I thank the gods I am foul.

7 III / 3
  • Well, the gods give us joy!
  • Well, the gods give us joy!
  • Jaques (lord). [Aside] I would fain see this meeting.

    gentleman's saying.

    gentleman's saying.

  • Ay, I know who 'tis; he hath no interest in me in the
    world; here comes the man you mean.
  • Touchstone. A most wicked Sir Oliver, Audrey, a most vile Martext.
    But, Audrey, there is a youth here in the forest lays claim to
    you.

    Audrey. Ay, I know who 'tis; he hath no interest in me in the
    world; here comes the man you mean.

  • Do, good William.
  • Do, good William.
  • Touchstone. He, sir, that must marry this woman. Therefore, you
    clown, abandon- which is in the vulgar leave- the society- which
    in the boorish is company- of this female- which in the common is
    woman- which together is: abandon the society of this female; or,
    clown, thou perishest; or, to thy better understanding, diest;
    or, to wit, I kill thee, make thee away, translate thy life into
    death, thy liberty into bondage. I will deal in poison with thee,
    or in bastinado, or in steel; I will bandy with thee in faction;
    will o'er-run thee with policy; I will kill thee a hundred and
    fifty ways; therefore tremble and depart.

    Audrey. Do, good William.

  • I do desire it with all my heart; and I hope it is no
    dishonest desire to desire to be a woman of the world. Here come
    two of the banish'd Duke's pages.
  • Touchstone. To-morrow is the joyful day, Audrey; to-morrow will we
    be married.

    Audrey. I do desire it with all my heart; and I hope it is no
    dishonest desire to desire to be a woman of the world. Here come
    two of the banish'd Duke's pages.
