If thou dost marry, I'll give thee this plague for
thy dowry:  be thou as chaste as ice, as pure as snow,
thou shalt not escape calumny.  Get thee to a nunnery.
Go, farewell.  Or if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool.
For wise men know well enough what monsters you
make of them.  To a nunnery, go, and quickly, too.  Fare-
