Desdemona: "The Heavens forbid
But that our loves and comforts should increase,
Even as our days do grow!"
Othello: "Amen to that, sweet powers!
I cannot speak enough of this content.
It stops me here, it is too much of joy.
And this, and this, the greatest discords be [kissing her]
That e'er our hearts shall make!" (II.i.195-201)
