Antonio:what stuff made of whereof it is born, Iam to learn;
And such a want wit sadness make of me,
That i much ado to know myself .
In smooth,I know not why I am so sad :
It wearies you;
But how I caught it ,found it, or came by it,

Salarino: Tour mind is tossing on the ocean;
There ,where your argosies with porty sail,
Like signiors and rich burghers onthe flood ,
Or,as it were ,the peasants of the sea,
Do overpeer the petty traffickers ,
That cursty to them,do them reverence,
As they fly by them with their woven wings.
