“I would have had thee there, and here again,
Ere I can tell thee what thou shouldst do there. O constancy, be strong upon my side! Set a huge mountain 'tween my heart and tongue! I have a man's mind, but a woman's might. How hard it is for women to keep counsel! Art thou here yet? LUCIUS. Madam, what should I do?
Run to the Capitol, and nothing else? And so return to you, and nothing else? Portia. Yes, bring me word, boy, if thy lord look well,
For he went sickly forth; and take good note” source
