"LYSANDER: Ay me! For aught that I could ever read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth;
But either it was different in blood -"
William Shakespeare, 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'
"LYSANDER: I am, my lord, as well derived as he,
As well possessed. My love is more than his,
My fortunes every way as fairly ranked -
If not with vantage - as Demetrius'."
- William Shakespeare, 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' :)
