I have elected to recite my lines from Othello. I will be reciting lines from Iago.

Iago-

Good name in man and woman, dear my lords,

Is the immediate jewel of their souls.

Who steals my purse steals trash. ‘Tis something,

nothing;

‘Twas mine, ‘tis his, and has been slave to

thousands.

But he that filches from me my good name

Robs me of that which not enriches him

And makes me poor indeed.

Othello (3.3.182-190)

These lines from Iago provide an insight into Iago’s character. While he’s opening boasting of character, he eagerly plots a scheme to destroy Othello, and these lines cover his cunning and danger from Othello.
