I have promised to make all this matter even.
Keep you your word, O duke, to give your daughter;
yours, Orlando, to receive his daughter:
Keep your word, Phebe, that you'll marry me,
Or else refusing
me, to wed this shepherd:
Keep your word, Silvius, that you'll marry her.
If she refuse me: and from hence
To make these doubts all even.
Exeunt ROSALIND and CELIA
I do remember in this shepherd boy
Some lively touches of my daughter's favour.
My lord, the first time that I ever saw him
Methought he was a brother to your daughter:
But, my good
lord, this boy is forest-born,
And hath been tutor'd in the rudiments
Of many desperate studies by his
Whom he reports to be a great magician,
Obscured in the circle of this forest.
Enter TOUCHSTONE and AUDREY
There is, sure, another flood toward, and these
couples are coming to the ark. Here comes a pair of
strange beasts, which in all tongues are called fools.
Salutation and greeting to you all!
Good my lord, bid him welcome: this is the
motley-minded gentleman that I have so often met in
the forest: he
hath been a courtier, he swears.
If any man doubt that, let him put me to my
purgation. I have trod a measure; I have flattered
a lady; I
have been politic with my friend, smooth
with mine enemy; I have undone three tailors; I have
quarrels, and like to have fought one.
And how was that ta'en up?
Faith, we met, and found the quarrel was upon the
How seventh cause? Good my lord, like this fellow.
I like him very well.
