The disobedient daughter
'So is Lysander'
'So does Lysander'
Love is worth fighting for
How low am I? I am not yet so low
But that my nails can reach unto thine eyes.
Hermia feels cheated
"O me, you juggler, you canker-blossom,"
Fear of arranged marriage
O hell! to choose love by another's eyes.
True and faithful to her love
My good Lysander!
I swear to thee, by Cupid's strongest bow,
By his best arrow with the golden head,
By the simplicity of Venus' doves,
By that which knitteth souls and prospers loves,
And by that fire which burn'd the Carthage queen,
When the false Troyan under sail was seen,
By all the vows that ever men have broke,
In number more than ever women spoke,
In that same place thou hast appointed me,
To-morrow truly will I meet with thee.
Foreshadowing why Hermia feels threatened by Helen
God speed fair Helena!
Believes in one woman per man and vise versa
The more I hate, the more he follows me.
Wants everyone to be in love
And good luck grant thee thy Demetrius!
