The Two Gentlemen of Verona Translation Act 2, Scene 2
Enter PROTEUS and JULIA
Have patience, gentle Julia.
I must, where is no remedy.
When possibly I can, I will return.
If you turn not, you will return the sooner.Keep this remembrance for thy Julia's sake.
Giving a ring
Why then, we'll make exchange; here, take you this.
And seal the bargain with a holy kiss.
Here is my hand for my true constancy; And when that hour o'erslips me in the day Wherein I sigh not , Julia, for thy sake, The next ensuing hour some foul mischance Torment me for my love's forgetfulness! My father stays my coming; answer not; The tide is now: nay, not thy tide of tears; That tide will stay me longer than I should. Julia, farewell!
What, gone without a word? Ay, so true love should do: it cannot speak; For truth hath better deeds than words to grace it.
Sir Proteus, you are stay'd for.
Go; I come, I come.Alas! This parting strikes poor lovers dumb.
