“How poor are they that have not patience!”

I do follow here in the chase, not like a hound that
hunts, but one that fills up the cry. My money is
almost spent; I have been to-night exceedingly well
cudgelled; and I think the issue will be, I shall
have so much experience for my pains, and so, with
no money at all and a little more wit, return again to Venice.


How poor are they that have not patience!
What wound did ever heal but by degrees?
Thou know’st we work by wit, and not by witchcraft;
And wit depends on dilatory time.
Does’t not go well? Cassio hath beaten thee.
And thou, by that small hurt, hast cashier’d Cassio:
Though other things grow fair against the sun,
Yet fruits that blossom first will first be ripe:
Content thyself awhile. By the mass, ’tis morning;
Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.
Retire thee; go where thou art billeted:
Away, I say; thou shalt know more hereafter:
Nay, get thee gone.


This quote is from Shakespeare’s famous drama, Othello. In this scene Iago tries to convince Roderigo to remain is Cypress and fulfill his evil plan. Roderigo destroys the good name of Cassio, lieutenant of Othello. Iago tells Roderigo, that he would help him to get Desdemona, wife of Othello however, it is a trap: he wants to get only money and high position.
