: I would like to be able to fully understand what the quote love is blind but jealousy has 20-20 vision mean. I would also like to know how it relates to the play othello by shakesphere.

A full understanding of that line might take a lifetime to achieve. Are you willing to settle for partial fullness? To relate it to "Othello," consider how love and jealousy influence each character's actions, especially the title character's. Notice how easily Othello changes his mind about his wife. Is he right or wrong each time? What does he "see" and "not see"?
