Nothing is sweeter than revenge!
what a herod of jewry is this! o wicked, wicked world! one that is well-nigh worn to pieces with age to show himself a young gallant! what an unweighed behaviour hath this Flemish drunkard picked--with the devil's name! out of my conversation, that he dares in this manner assay me? why, he hath not been trice in my company! what should i say to him? i was then frugal of my mirth: heaven forgive me! why, i'll exhibit a bill in the parliament for the putting down of men. how shall i be revenged on him? for revenged i will be, as sure as his guts are made of puddings. (Merry Wives of Windor, Shakespeare)
who would have ever thought that seeking revenge on someone could sound so innocent and interesting? i dont know how mistress ford does it, but she makes her point made. Flastaff has done wrong against her and she WILL make him pay. i thought it was funny that she even says he has the devil's name....wow! she's one angry woman!
