“to thy tongue, I pr'ythee; it curvets unseasonably. He was furnished like a hunter.
ROSALIND O, ominous! he comes to kill my heart.
CELIA I would sing my song without a burden: thou bring'st me out of tune. ROSALIND Do you not know I am a woman? when I think, I must speak. Sweet, say on.
CELIA You bring me out.—Soft! comes he not here?
ROSALIND 'Tis he: slink by, and note him. [CELIA and ROSALIND retire.] [Enter ORLANDO and JAQUES.]” source
