“As one dead in the bottom of a tomb. Either my eyesight fails, or thou look'st pale. Rom. And trust me, love, in my eye so do you.
Dry sorrow drinks our blood. Adieu, adieu!
EXIT. Jul. O Fortune, Fortune! all men call thee fickle.
If thou art fickle, what dost thou with him That is renown'd for faith? Be fickle, Fortune,
For then I hope thou wilt not keep him long But send him back. Lady. [within] Ho, daughter! are you up?” source
