Speak briefly. Could you like of Paris' love?

This night you shall behold him at our feast.

and find delight writ there
with beauty's pen.

So shall you share all that he doth possess,
by having him making yourself no less.
Nay, bigger. Women grow by men.
Speak briefly, can you like of Paris's love?
I'll look to like, if looking liking move.
But no more deep will I endart mine eye
than your consent gives strength
to make it fly.
Madam, the guests are come.
Go!
We follow thee.
Juliet!
Go, girl. Seek happy nights to happy days.
