Test tomorrow:  20 m/c questions and quotations.

2.  “such as act/ that blurs such grace and blush of modesty/ calls virtue hypocrite, takes off the rose/from fair forehead of an innocent love/ and sets a blister there; makes marriage vows/ as false as dicers”(3.4.42-47).

3.  “I am constant to my purpose.  They follow the king’s/ pleasure.   If his fitness speaks, mine is ready, now or/ whenever, provided I be so able as now” (5.2.192-194).
