1866 Excerpt: ...love is still most precious in itself: And Silvia,
--witness Heaven, that made her fair --Shows Julia but a swarthy
Ethiope. I will forget that Julia is alive, Remembering that my
love to her is dead; And Valentine I'll hold an enemy, Aiming at
Silvia as a sweeter friend. I cannot now prove constant to myself,
Without some treachery used to Valentine: --This night, he meaneth
with a corded ladder To climb celestial Silvia's chamber-window;
Myself in counsel, his competitor: Now presently I'll give her
father notice Of their disguising, and pretended flight; Who, all
enraged, will banish Valentine; For Thurio, he intends, shall wed
his daughter: But, Valentine being gone, I'll quickly cross, By
some sly trick, blunt Thurio's dull proceeding. Love, lend me wings
to make my purpose swift, As thou hast lent me wit to plot this
drift Exit. SCENE VII.--Verona. A room in Julia'J House. Enter
Julia and Lucetta. Jul. Counsel, Lucetta gentle girl, assist me And
even in kind love I do conjure thee, --Who art the table wherein
all my thoughts Are visibly character'd and engraved, --To lesson
me; and tell me some good mean, How, with my honour, I may
undertake A journey to my loving Proteus. Luc. Alas the way is
wearisome and long. Jul. A true-devoted pilgrim is not weary To
measure kingdoms with his feeble steps; Much less shall she, that
hath love's wings to fly; And when the flight is made to one so
dear, Of such divine perfection, as sir Proteus. Luc. Better
forbear, till Proteus make return. Jul. 0, know'st thou not his
looks are my soul's food? Pity the dearth that I have pined in, By
longing for that food so long a time. Didst thou but know the inly
touch of love, Thou wouldst as soon go kindle fire with snow, As
seek to quench the fire of love with words. Luc.
