      I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises ,
      and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition, that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory: this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me  than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours!
      What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable,  in action how like an angel. In apprehension, how like a god! The beauty of the world. The paragon of animals!
      And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

      Hey, what about the twelfth night. Helena falls in love with Viola cos she mistakes her for a boy. A bit of a subtle example I know.
