Another thing about Viola she is a strong and independent girl. The author states “I have one heart, one bosom, and one truth, and that no woman has, nor never none shall mistress be of it, save I alone” (III.i.148-150). This quote means that viola is a person that won’t break any promises when it comes to love. Also this quote means that Viola has one heart for someone and no one else and she is a faithful person. In the quote what was happening before was that Olivia was expressing her feeling to Viola. That’s when viola tells Olivia that she has one heart for one person nobody else.

The way Viola acts on the character of Cesario is a guy that is smart, the way she is smart because she is keeping her identity a secret and the characters thinks that she is Cesario and that she is just a normal guy. The author states “oh, that I served that lady and might not be delivered to the world, till I had made mine own occasion mellow, what my estate is” (I.i.37-40).

If you have reason, be brief. ‘Tis not the time of moon with me to make one in so skipping a dialogue” (I.v.176-180).
