Shakesperean Characters Having A Chat


HELENA: Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is wing’d Cupid painted blind.
(A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act I, Scene I)

JESSICA: But love is blind, and lovers cannot see
The pretty follies that themselves commit;
(The Merchant of Venice, Act II, Scene VI)
