1

I,2,49

This is Illyria, lady.

2

I,2,53

It is perchance that you yourself were saved.

3

I,2,55

True, madam: and, to comfort you with chance,
Assure yourself, after our ship did split,
When you and those poor number saved with you
Hung on our driving boat, I saw your brother,
Most provident in peril, bind himself,
Courage and hope both teaching him the practise,
To a strong mast that lived upon the sea;
Where, like Arion on the dolphin's back,
I saw him hold acquaintance with the waves
So long as I could see.

4

I,2,69

Ay, madam, well; for I was bred and born
Not three hours' travel from this very place.

5

I,2,72

A noble duke, in nature as in name.

6

I,2,74

Orsino.

7

I,2,77

And so is now, or was so very late;
For but a month ago I went from hence,
And then 'twas fresh in murmur,—as, you know,
What great ones do the less will prattle of,—
That he did seek the love of fair Olivia.

8

I,2,83

A virtuous maid, the daughter of a count
That died some twelvemonth since, then leaving her
In the protection of his son, her brother,
Who shortly also died: for whose dear love,
They say, she hath abjured the company
And sight of men.

9

I,2,93

That were hard to compass;
Because she will admit no kind of suit,
No, not the duke's.

10

I,2,111

Be you his eunuch, and your mute I'll be:
When my tongue blabs, then let mine eyes not see.
