Why should you think that I should woo in scorn?
I had no judgment when to her I swore.
Demetrius loves her, and he loves not you.
You do advance your cunning more and more.
These vows are Hermia's: will you give her o'er?
You are unkind, Demetrius; be not so;
For you love Hermia; this you know I know:
And here, with all good will, with all my heart,
In Hermia's love I yield you up my part;
And yours of Helena to me bequeath,
Whom I do love and will do till my death.
And now both rivals, to mock Helena.
Why should he stay, whom love doth press to go?
Lysander, why unkindly didst thou leave me so?
Lysander's love, that would not let him bide,
Fair Helena, who more engilds the night
Than all you fiery stars of light.
Why seek'st thou me? could not this make thee know,
The hate I bear thee made me leave thee so?
What love could press Lysander from my side?
Stay, gentle Helena; hear my excuse:
My love, my life my soul, fair Helena!
Ay, make mouths upon me when I turn my back;
Wink each at other; hold the sweet jest up.
If you have any pity, grace, or manners,
You would not make me such an argument.
But fare ye well: 'tis partly my own fault;
Which death or absence soon shall remedy.
Thou canst compel no more than she entreat:
Thy threats have no more strength than her weak prayers.
Helen, I love thee; by my life, I do.
If she cannot entreat, I can compel.
If thou say so, withdraw, and prove it too.
I say I love thee more than he can do.
Away, you wretch!
Hang off, thou cat, thou burr! vile thing, let loose,
Or I will shake thee from me like a serpent!
Lysander, whereto tends all this?
Thy love! out.
Out, loathed medicine! hated potion, hence!
Why are you grown so rude? what change is this?
Demetrius, I will keep my word with thee.
Yes, sooth; and so do you.
What, should I hurt her, strike her, kill her dead?
Although I hate her, I'll not harm her so.
I'll not trust your word.
Ay, by my life;
And never did desire to see thee more.
I do hate thee and love Helena.
What, can you do me greater harm than hate?
Hate me! Wherefore? Am not I Hermia? are not you Lysander?
Since night you loved me; yet since night you left
Be not afraid; she shall not harm thee, Helena.
Get you gone, you dwarf;
You bead, you acorn.
'Little' again! nothing but 'low' and 'little'!
Why will you suffer her to flout me thus?
Let me come to her.
Now follow, if thou darest, to try whose right,
Of thine or mine, is most in Helena.
Let her alone: speak not of Helena;
Take not her part.
