Answers to Othello Game.

Quote Description of what it shows.
“even now, now, very now, an old black ram is tupping your white ewe.” (I.1.90) Our initial impressions of Othello are developed through what others say about him.
“My services, which I have done the signory, shall out-tongue his complaints.” (I.2.19) Othello is not afraid of admitting that he is a very good soldier, and a capable General.
“I fetch my life and being from men of royal siege.” (I.2.21) Othello prefers to be known through his deeds rather than for his family.
“Rude am I in my speech, and little blessed with the soft phrase of peace.” (I.3.81) Othello is modest, and has an honest opinion of his strengths and weaknesses.
“Send for the lady to the Sagittary, and let her speak of me before her father.” (I.3.115) At the beginning of the play, he trusts Desdemona enough to call for her in order to help him defend himself.
“She loved me for the dangers I had passed, and I loved her that she did pity them.” (I.3.266) Othello explains the reasons why he and Desdemona fell in love.
“Cassio, I love thee, but never more be officer of mine.” (II.3.242) Othello shows that he is fair and just by doing something that he hates, partly because he knows that it is expected of somebody in his position.
“Perdition catch my soul, but I do love thee! And when I love thee not, chaos is come again.” (III.3.90) Othello knows that he loves Desdemona so much that only a great catastrophe can separate them.
“For she had eyes and chose me. No Iago, I’ll see before I doubt; when I doubt, prove.” (III.3.188) Othello is sure of the love between him and Desdemona.
“She’s gone: I am abused, and my relief must be to loathe her.” (III.3.264) He feels so strongly for Desdemona that there is no middle ground. He either loves her, or thinks that he has lost her.
“Pish! Noses, ears, and lips! Is’t possible? Confess? Handkerchief! O devil!” (IV.1.41) Othello is insane with jealousy, without having seen any real proof.
“yet she must die, or else she’ll betray more men.” (V.2.6) Othello has developed his idea of Desdemona into that of a witch, wanting to corrupt men.
“I, that am cruel, am yet merciful.” (V.2.88) He sincerely thinks that he is justified in his actions.
“but why should honour outlive honesty? Let it all go.” (V.2.243) Othello realises his mistake, and admits that he has nothing left.
“I kissed thee, ere I killed thee. No way but this, killing myself, to die upon a kiss.” (V.2.355) Othello tries to reconcile with Desdemona, even though she is dead.
