THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA
SCENE I. Verona. An open place
Enter VALENTINE and PROTEUS
VALENTINE. Cease to persuade, my loving Proteus: Home-keeping
youth have ever homely wits. Were't not affection chains thy tender days
To the sweet glances of thy honour'd love, I rather would entreat thy
company To see the wonders of the world abroad, Than, living dully
sluggardiz'd at home, Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness. But
since thou lov'st, love still, and thrive therein, Even as I would, when I to
love begin. PROTEUS. Wilt thou be gone? Sweet Valentine, adieu! Think
on thy Proteus, when thou haply seest Some rare noteworthy object in thy
travel. Wish me partaker in thy happiness When thou dost meet good hap;
and in thy danger, If ever danger do environ thee, Commend thy grievance
to my holy prayers, For I will be thy headsman, Valentine. VALENTINE.
And on a love-book pray for my ess? PROTEUS. Upon some book I
love I'll pray for thee. VALENTINE. That's on some shallow story of deep
love: How young Leander cross'd the Hellespont. PROTEUS. That's a
deep story of a deeper love; For he was more than over shoes in love.
VALENTINE. 'Tis true; for you are over boots in love, And yet you never
swum the Hellespont. PROTEUS. Over the boots! Nay, give me not the
boots. VALENTINE. No, I will not, for it boots thee not. PROTEUS. What?
VALENTINE. To be in love- where scorn is bought with groans, Coy
looks with heart-sore sighs, one fading moment's mirth With twenty
watchful, weary, tedious nights; If haply won, perhaps a hapless gain; If
lost, why then a grievous labour won; However, but a folly bought with
wit, Or else a wit by folly vanquished. PROTEUS. So, by your
circumstance, you call me fool. VALENTINE. So, by your circumstance, I
fear you'll prove. PROTEUS. 'Tis love you cavil at; I am not Love.
VALENTINE. Love is your master, for he masters you; And he that is so
yoked by a fool, Methinks, should not be chronicled for wise. PROTEUS.
Yet writers say, as in the sweetest bud The eating canker dwells, so eating
love Inhabits in the finest wits of all. VALENTINE. And writers say, as the
most forward bud Is eaten by the canker ere it blow, Even so by love the
young and tender wit Is turn'd to folly, blasting in the bud, Losing his

verdure even in the prime, And all the fair effects of future hopes. But
wherefore waste I time to counsel the That art a votary to fond desire?
Once more adieu. My father at the road Expects ing, there to see
me shipp'd. PROTEUS. And thither will I bring thee, Valentine.
VALENTINE. Sweet Proteus, no; now let us take our leave. To Milan let
me hear from thee by letters Of thy ess in love, and what news else
Betideth here in absence of thy friend; And I l 内容来自淘豆网www.taodocs.com转载请标明出处.
