OTHELLO: What dost thou mean?

IAGO: Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,

Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;

'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands:

But he that filches from me my good name

Robs me of that which not enriches him

OTHELLO: By heaven, I'll know thy thoughts.

IAGO: You cannot, if my heart were in your hand;

OTHELLO: O misery!
