"Hero. But nature never fram'd a woman's heart/ Of prouder stuff than that of Beatrice:/ Disdain and scorn ride sparkling in her eyes,/ Misprising what they look on; and her wit/ Values itself so highly, that to her/ All matter else seems weak; she cannot love,/ Nor take no shape nor project of affection,/ She is so self-endeared." Much Ado about Nothing, Act III. Scene I. [P. 7.]
