    Is there no way for men to be, but women
    Must be half-workers? We are all bastards,
    And that most venerable man which I
    Did call my father was I know not where
    When I was stamped. Some coiner with his tools
    Made me a counterfeit; yet my mother seemed
    The Dian of that time. So doth my wife
    The nonpareil of this. O, vengeance, vengeance!
    Me of my lawful pleasure she restrained
    And prayed me oft forbearance -- did it with
    A pudency so rosy, the sweet view on't
    Might well have warmed old Saturn -- that I thought her
    As chaste as unsunned snow. O, all the devils!
    This yellow Iachimo in an hour, was't not?
    Or less? At first? Perchance he spoke not, but,
    Like a full-acorned boar, a German one,
    Cried 'O!' and mounted; found no opposition
    But what he looked for should oppose and she
    Should from encounter guard. Could I find out
    The woman's part in me! For there's no motion
    That tends to vice in man but I affirm
    It is the woman's part. Be it lying, note it,
    The woman's; flattering, hers; deceiving, hers;
    Lust and rank thoughts, hers, hers; revenges, hers;
    Ambitions, covetings, change of prides, disdain,
    Nice longings, slanders, mutability,
    All faults that man may name, nay, that hell knows,
    Why, hers, in part or all, but rather all.
    For even to vice
    They are not constant, but are changing still
    One vice but of a minute old for one
    Not half so old as that. I'll write against them,
    Detest them, curse them. Yet 'tis greater skill
    In a true hate to pray they have their will;
    The very devils cannot plague them better. [Exit]
