ANTONIO.  [Aside]  Mark you this, Bassanio,     The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.     An evil soul producing holy witness      Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,     A goodly apple rotten at the heart.     O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!
O father Abram, what these Christians are,     Whose own hard dealings teaches them suspect     The thoughts of others!
