“Tis in ourselves that we are thus, or thus. Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners: so that if we will plant nettles, or sow lettuce… either to have it sterile with idleness or manur'd with industry, why, the power, and corrigible authority of this, lies in our wills.” -- Othello
Biblical Shakespeare, whereas Cassio meets Potipher’s wife, after possibly being left for dead with sheep dip painted on his coat. Iago with his silvered tongued, “Wait a minute, wait a minute now,” gets Othello up in arms and out for blood. Meanwhile, Bianca’s out having her first kiss in the woods with Cassio. And Rueben, the good “brother,” teaches him cool gun sleight of hand and both in their own way, help him find his true self.
“[Cassio] the things that you stood for, like truth and light never die.” -- Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat.
