Quote by William Shakespeare

Don Pedro - (...)'In time the savage bull doth bear the yoke.'Benedick - The savage bull may, but if ever the sensible Benedick bear it, pluck off the bull's horns and set them in my forehead, and let me be vildly painted; and in such great letters as they writes, 'Here is good horse for hire', let them signify under my sign, 'Here you may see Benedick the married man.

Don Pedro - (...)'In time the savage bull doth bear the yoke


In this quote from William Shakespeare's play "Much Ado About Nothing," Don Pedro suggests that even the wildest and untamed can eventually conform and adapt to societal expectations. Benedick, who resists the idea of marriage, humorously counters by rejecting conformity and stating that if he does submit to marriage, he would rather be labeled with the traits associated with a wild bull than with those of a married man. Benedick's response highlights his resistance to societal norms and his unwillingness to let marriage define him.
