Quote #10

JAQUES
The duke hath put on a religious life
And thrown into neglect the pompous court?
[...]
To him will I: out of these convertites
There is much matter to be heard and learn'd.
[...]
So, to your pleasures:
I am for other than for dancing measures.
[...]
To see no pastime I what you would have
I'll stay to know at your abandon'd cave. (5.4.9)

This is interesting.  The melancholy Jaques is virtually the only character who doesn't change.  What's up with that?
