O woman! lovely woman! Nature made thee To temper man: we had been brutes without you. Angels are painted fair, to look like you: There s in you all that we believe of heaven, Amazing brightness, purity, and truth, Eternal joy, and everlasting love.
What mighty ills have not been done by woman! Who was t betrayed the Capitol?A woman! Who lost Mark Antony the world?A woman! Who was the cause of a long ten years war, And laid at last old Troy in ashes?Woman! Destructive, damnable, deceitful woman!2
