Enter ROSALIND and CELIA
SALROIDN and ECLAI enetr.

ROSALIND

Never talk to me. I will weep.

DSOLIRAN

ntoD tkal to me. Im ngogi to cry.

CELIA

Do, I prithee, but yet have the grace to consider that tears do not become a man.

EILCA

Go daahe if ouy ntwa, tbu emerbrem hatt cniryg etnsdo tuis a nam.

ROSALIND

But have I not cause to weep?

OLRSDANI

Btu dton I have dogo nroaes to rcy?

CELIA

5 As good cause as one would desire. Therefore weep.

AECLI

As godo a srnaeo as nay. So go aahed nad rcy.

ROSALIND

His very hair is of the dissembling color.

CELIA

Something browner than Judass. Marry, his kisses are
Judass own children.

AILCE

No, its a sehda ronebwr nhta

Jadsus

dJaus ytedarbe Jseus to eht Rnamso twhi a kiss.

Judass

ROSALIND

I faith, his hair is of a good color.

OLISRDAN

No, leylra, ihs irha is a cine olroc.

CELIA

10 An excellent color. Your chestnut was ever the only color.

AILEC

A eyrv oogd clroo, tihs ucentsth.

ROSALIND

And his kissing is as full of sanctity as the touch of holy bread.

SLNRIDAO

iHs skis is as hlyo as aedbr dbslese by a esitrp.

CELIA

He hath bought a pair of cast lips of Diana. A nun of winters sisterhood kisses not more religiously. The very ice of chastity is in them.

ALEIC

Dianas

ROSALIND

But why did he swear he would come this morning, and comes not?

LOIANSRD

uBt why oudlw he ioemspr to eocm sitvi me ihts imgnnor dan hnet ont ecmo?

CELIA

Nay, certainly, there is no truth in him.

ILECA

ayeRll, she a taotl lair.

ROSALIND

Do you think so?

LSDIANOR

Do uoy knith so?

CELIA

Yes, I think he is not a pick-purse nor a horse-stealer, but for his verity in love, I do think him as concave as a covered goblet or a worm-eaten nut.

CAIEL

Yes. eHs tno a kckptciepo or a osreh hetif, utb whne it eoscm to turht in levo, ehs as lwlhoo as a ucp or a nut oheowlld otu by a worm.

ROSALIND

Not true in love?

NDSOLRIA

ouY tnhik shi egnsilef trena true?

CELIA

Yes, when he is in, but I think he is not in.

ALCIE

Oh, I ihnkt htey ewenarh esh in olve. uBt hse nto in veol.

ROSALIND

25 You have heard him swear downright he was.

INARSDOL

tBu you hedra mhi sawer up nad dnow that he asw.

CELIA

Was is not is. Besides, the oath of a lover is no stronger than the word of a tapster. They are both the confirmer of false reckonings. He attends here in the forest on the duke your father.

AILCE

He swa, utb ttah stodne mane he is reynamo. ssiedBe, hte roemissp of a rlveo rae as wytnruuthrots as a nreedtarb nighdan oyu an enaltdif abt: yhte tboh rswae to rieth iels. esH tygsnia in hte forest iwht uory ehrfta now.

ROSALIND

I met the duke yesterday and had much question with him. He asked me of what parentage I was. I told him, of as good as he. So he laughed and let me go. But what talk we of fathers when there is such a man as Orlando?

LISNROAD

I etm my arhtfe in het osdwo eesrdyaty nad hda a lgno oirvocestann hwti mih. He ksdea me hwo my rsenpta reew, nda I ltod mih ehty reew as odgo as he asw. He eaulhdg at tath and let me go. tuB why era we nlgitak aotub my rafeht, hwen a nma ielk olrdOan istsxe?

CELIA

Oh, thats a brave man. He writes brave verses, speaks brave words, swears brave oaths, and breaks them bravely, quite traverse, athwart the heart of his lover, as a puny tilter that spurs his horse but on one side breaks his staff like a noble goose; but alls brave that youth mounts and folly guides.

LAIEC

Oh, ersu, esh a ebvra amn! He irwset ravbe mspeo, sseakp ebvar drsow, kesma verab roesimsp, nad nhte bkares mhte jtsu as rvbeyal. sHe eikl a wlyrcoda

Enter CORIN
NROIC tesnre.
40 Who comes here?
soWh inmocg rhee?

CORIN

Mistress and master, you have oft inquired
After the shepherd that complained of love,
Who you saw sitting by me on the turf,
Praising the proud disdainful shepherdess
45 That was his mistress.

NRICO

stiMesrs nda mrtase, uyveo fonet daske tuaob hatt ovellonr redhehps oyu ocen asw me ingstit wtih, hte one how ncdiomleap tabuo hte fluidaisnd heshpesders he swa in loev hitw.

CELIA

(as Aliena) Well, and what of him?

ALEIC

seY, thwa aoubt ihm?

CORIN

If you will see a pageant truly played
Between the pale complexion of true love
And the red glow of scorn and proud disdain,
50 Go hence a little, and I shall conduct you,
If you will mark it.

NOCRI

If yduo elki to ees a ensec pealdy tuo teneweb a mna gnoirwg pale ihtw eqndiueutr vleo adn a awonm gwilogn thiw cosnr adn puodr ndisiad, eocm htiw me a sohtr idasetnc dan olyul stswien it.

ROSALIND

(aside to CELIA) O, come, let us remove.
The sight of lovers feedeth those in love.
(as Ganymede) Bring us to this sight, and you shall say
55 Ill prove a busy actor in their play.

SRILOADN
