12th Knight William Shakespeare Viola. I left no ring with her. What means this lady fortune forbid my outside have not charmed her. She made good view of me indeed so much that me thought her eyes had lost her tongue for she did speak and starts distractedly. She loves me. Sure, the cunning of her passion invites me in this churlish messenger. None of my lords ring. Well, he sent her none. I am the man. If it be so as his oh poor lady, she would better love a dream disguise. I see thou art a wickedness wherein the pregnant enemy does much. How easy it is for the proper false in women's wax and hearts to set their forms. Alas our frailty is the cause not we for such as we are made of such. We be. How will this badge? My master loves her dearly and I poor monster fond as much on him. And she mistakenly seems to dote on me. What will become of this as I am man? My state is desperate for my master's love as I am woman. Now alas the day what thriftless size shall poor Olivia breathe. Oh time thou must untangle this. Not, I, it is too hard and not for me to untie.
