  • Come, let's return again, and suffice ourselves with
    the report of it. Well,...
  • Come, let's return again, and suffice ourselves with
    the report of it. Well, Diana, take heed of this
    French earl: the honour of a maid is her name; and
    no legacy is so rich as honesty.
  • Widow. It is reported that he has taken their greatest
    commander; and that with his own hand he slew the
    duke's brother.
    [Tucket]
    We have lost our labour; they are gone a contrary
    way: hark! you may know by their trumpets.

    Mariana. Come, let's return again, and suffice ourselves with
    the report of it. Well, Diana, take heed of this
    French earl: the honour of a maid is her name; and
    no legacy is so rich as honesty.

  • I know that knave; hang him! one Parolles: a
    filthy officer he is in those suggestions for the
    young earl. Beware of them, Diana; their promises,
    enticements, oaths, tokens, and all these engines of
    lust, are not the things they go under: many a maid
    hath been seduced by them; and the misery is,
    example, that so terrible shows in the wreck of
    maidenhood, cannot for all that dissuade succession,
    but that they are limed with the twigs that threaten
    them. I hope I need not to advise you further; but
    I hope your own grace will keep you where you are,
    though there were no further danger known but the
    modesty which is so lost.
  • Widow. I have told my neighbour how you have been solicited
    by a gentleman his companion.

    Mariana. I know that knave; hang him! one Parolles: a
    filthy officer he is in those suggestions for the
    young earl. Beware of them, Diana; their promises,
    enticements, oaths, tokens, and all these engines of
    lust, are not the things they go under: many a maid
    hath been seduced by them; and the misery is,
    example, that so terrible shows in the wreck of
    maidenhood, cannot for all that dissuade succession,
    but that they are limed with the twigs that threaten
    them. I hope I need not to advise you further; but
    I hope your own grace will keep you where you are,
    though there were no further danger known but the
    modesty which is so lost.

  • The gods forbid else!
  • The gods forbid else!
  • Widow. He does indeed;
    And brokes with all that can in such a suit
    Corrupt the tender honour of a maid:
    But she is arm'd for him and keeps her guard
    In honestest defence.

    Mariana. The gods forbid else!

  • He's shrewdly vexed at something: look, he has spied us.
  • He's shrewdly vexed at something: look, he has spied us.
  • Parolles. Lose our drum! well.

    Mariana. He's shrewdly vexed at something: look, he has spied us.

  • And your courtesy, for a ring-carrier!
  • And your courtesy, for a ring-carrier!
  • Widow. Marry, hang you!

    Mariana. And your courtesy, for a ring-carrier!
