William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice Comedy Love Community In sooth I know not why I am so sad.

It wearies me, you say it wearies you, But how I caught it, found it, or came by it, What stuff tis made of, whereof it is born, I am to learn; And such a want-wit sadness makes of me That I have much ado to know myself. (1.1.1-7)

Well, tell me now what lady is the same To whom you swore a secret pilgrimage, That you today promised to tell me of? (1.1.126-128) SALARINO: And even there, his [Antonios] eye being big with tears, Turning his face, he put his hand behind

him, And with affection wondrous sensible He wrung Bassanios hand and so they parted. SOLANIO: I think he only loves the world for him. (2.8.48-52) Pray God Bassanio come

To see me pay his debt, and then I care not. (3.3.38-39) In Belmont is a lady richly left, And she is fair, and, fairer than that word, Of wondrous virtues. Sometimes from her eyes I did receive fair speechless messages.

Her name is Portia, nothing undervalued To Catos daughter, Brutus Portia. Nor is the wide world ignorant of her worth, For the four winds blow in from every coast Renownd suitors, and her sunny locks Hang on her temples like a golden fleece, Which makes her seat of Belmont Colchos

strond, And many Jasons come in quest of her. O my Antonio, had I but the means To hold a rival place with one of them, I have a mind presages me such thrift That I should questionless be fortunate! (1.1.168-183)

by adventuring both / I oft found both. (1.1.150-151) by adventuring both / I oft found both. (1.1.150-151) And every object that might make me fear / misfortune to my ventures, out of doubt / would make me sad. (1.1.20-22) My ventures are not in one bottom trusted / nor to one place. (1.1.43-44)

But is it true, Salerio? Hath all his ventures failed? What, not one hit? From Tripolis, from Mexico, and England, From Lisbon, Barbary, and India, And not one vessel scape the dreadful touch Of merchant-marring rocks? (3.2.277-282) But is it true, Salerio?

Hath all his ventures failed? What, not one hit? From Tripolis, from Mexico, and England, From Lisbon, Barbary, and India, And not one vessel scape the dreadful touch Of merchant-marring rocks? (3.2.277-282) You have among you many a purchased slave, Which, like your asses and your dogs and mules,

You use in abject and in slavish parts Because you bought them. (4.1.91-94) I pray you, think you question with the Jew? You may as well go stand upon the beach And bid the main flood bate his usual height; You may as well use question with the wolf Why he hath made the ewe bleat for the lamb;

You may as well forbid the mountain pines To wag their high tops and to make no noise When they are fretten with the gusts of heaven; You may as well do anything most hard As seek to soften that than which whats harder His Jewish heart. (4.1.71-81) PORTIA: Art thou contented, Jew? What dost

thou say? SHYLOCK: I am content. PORTIA: Clerk, draw a deed of gift. SHYLOCK: I pray you, give me leave to go from hence. I am not well. Send the deed after me And I will sign it. (4.1.409-414)

SALARINO: Why, I am sure if he forfeit thou wilt not take his flesh. Whats that good for? SHYLOCK: To bait fish withal. If it will feed nothing else, it will feed my revenge. He hath disgraced me and hindred me half a million, laughed at my losses, mocked at my gains, scorned my nation, thwarted my bargains, cooled my friends, heated mine enemies, and whats his reason? I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew

hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge. If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his

sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge! The villainy you teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction. (3.1.50-72) SALARINO: Why, I am sure if he forfeit thou wilt not take his flesh. Whats that good for? SHYLOCK: To bait fish withal. If it will feed nothing else, it will feed my revenge. He hath disgraced me and hindred me half a million,
