Description: Under Puck's spell, Lysander tells Helena that he loves her.
William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
Act 3, Scene 2
Lysander: Why should you think that I should woo in scorn? 1160
Scorn and derision never come in tears:
Look, when I vow, I weep; and vows so born,
In their nativity all truth appears.
How can these things in me seem scorn to you,
Bearing the badge of faith, to prove them true? 1165
Helena: You do advance your cunning more and more.
When truth kills truth, O devilish-holy fray!
These vows are Hermia's: will you give her o'er?
Weigh oath with oath, and you will nothing weigh:
Your vows to her and me, put in two scales, 1170
Will even weigh, and both as light as tales.
