LYSISTRATA


I will be cold as ice, and never stir a limb...


CLEONICE


I will be cold as ice, and never stir a limb...


LYSISTRATA


I will neither extend my Persian slippers toward the ceiling...


CLEONICE


I will neither extend my Persian slippers toward the ceiling...


LYSISTRATA


Nor will I crouch like the carven lions on a knife-handle.


CLEONICE


Nor will I crouch like the carven lions on a knife-handle.


LYSISTRATA


And if I keep my oath, may I be suffered to drink of this wine.


CLEONICE (more courageously)


And if I keep my oath, may I be suffered to drink of this wine.


LYSISTRATA


But if I break it, let my bowl be filled with water.


CLEONICE


But if I break it, let my bowl be filled with water.


LYSISTRATA
