Othello: "When I have plucked the rose,
I cannot give it vital growth again,
It needs must wither. I'll smell it on the tree. [Kissing her]
Ah, balmy breath, that dost almost persuade
Justice to break her sword! One more, one more.
Be thus when thou art dead, and I will kill thee,
And love thee after. One more, and this the last.
So sweet was ne'er so fatal...." (V.ii.13-20).
