  • He's hearing of a cause; he will come straight
    I'll tell him of you.
  • He's hearing of a cause; he will come straight
    I'll tell him of you.
  • Escalus. It is but needful:
    Mercy is not itself, that oft looks so;
    Pardon is still the nurse of second woe:
    But yet,--poor Claudio! There is no remedy.
    Come, sir.

    Servant. He's hearing of a cause; he will come straight
    I'll tell him of you.

2 II / 2
  • Here is the sister of the man condemn'd
    Desires access to you.
  • Here is the sister of the man condemn'd
    Desires access to you.

    To some more fitter place, and that with speed.

    Servant. Here is the sister of the man condemn'd
    Desires access to you.

  • One Isabel, a sister, desires access to you.
  • One Isabel, a sister, desires access to you.
  • Angelo. When I would pray and think, I think and pray
    To several subjects. Heaven hath my empty words;
    Whilst my invention, hearing not my tongue,
    Anchors on Isabel: Heaven in my mouth,
    As if I did but only chew his name;
    And in my heart the strong and swelling evil
    Of my conception. The state, whereon I studied
    Is like a good thing, being often read,
    Grown fear'd and tedious; yea, my gravity,
    Wherein--let no man hear me--I take pride,
    Could I with boot change for an idle plume,
    Which the air beats for vain. O place, O form,
    How often dost thou with thy case, thy habit,
    Wrench awe from fools and tie the wiser souls
    To thy false seeming! Blood, thou art blood:
    Let's write good angel on the devil's horn:
    'Tis not the devil's crest.
    [Enter a Servant]
    How now! who's there?

    Servant. One Isabel, a sister, desires access to you.
