    A monologue from the play by William Shakespeare

    PROTEUS: To leave my Julia, shall I be forsworn;To love fair Silvia, shall I be forsworn;To wrong my friend, I shall be much forsworn;And ev’n that pow’r which gave me first my oathProvokes me to this threefold perjury.Love bade me swear, and Love bids me forswear.O sweet-suggesting Love, if thou hast sinned,Teach me, thy tempted subject, to excuse it.At first I did adore a twinkling star,But now I worship a celestial sun.Unheedful vows may heedfully be broken,And he wants wit that wants resolved willTo learn his wit t’ exchange the bad for better.Fie, fie, unreverend tongue, to call her bad,Whose sovereignty so oft thou hast preferredWith twenty thousand soul-confirming oaths!I cannot leave to love, and yet I do;But there I leave to love where I should love.Julia I lose and Valentine I lose.If I keep them, I needs must lose myself;If I lose them, thus find I by their loss:For Valentine, myself; for Julia, Silvia.I to myself am dearer than a friend,For love is still most precious in itself,And Silvia — witness heaven that made her fair! –Shows Julia but a swarthy Ethiope.I will forget that Julia is alive,Rememb’ring that my love to her is dead,And Valentine I’ll hold an enemy,Aiming at Silvia as a sweeter friend.I cannot now prove constant to myselfWithout some treachery used to Valentine.This night he meaneth with a corded ladderTo climb celestial Silvia’s chamber window,Myself in counsel, his competitor.Now presently I’ll give her father noticeOf their disguising and pretended flight,Who, all enraged, will banish Valentine;For Thurio, he intends, shall wed his daughter.But, Valentine being gone, I’ll quickly crossBy some sly trick blunt Thurio’s dull proceeding.Love, lend me wings to make my purpose swift,As thou hast lent me wit to plot this drift.
