“What flaw do you see in I, Helena?
My complexion is as fair as Hermia,
and my voice as sweet as a nightingale.”

Helena talking to Demetrius in A Midsummer’s Night Dream

 

What flaw do you see in I, Helena?

My complexion is as fair as Hermia,

and my voice as sweet as a nightingale.

Let Hermia be; she holds no place for thee.

She dotes on Lysander, so be mine.

You have deprived me of my senses,

and beguiled me by your visage.

I pray thee, give me a chance to stand by thee,

to undo my woe, cast by thou hate at me,

and then, we shall be happy, I promise thee.
