"There is no ..." Quote of William Shakespeare

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

There is no woman's sides Can bide the beating of so strong a passion As love doth give my heart; no woman's heart So big, to hold so much; they lack retention. Alas, their love may be called appetite.

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Orsino, in Twelfth Night, act 2, sc. 4, l. 93-7. Speaking to Cesario, really Viola in disguise; "bide" means endure.
