o serpent heart, hid with a flowering face,
did ever dragon keep so fair a cave ?
beautiful tyrant, fient angelical:
dove-feather'd rawen, wolwish-ravening lamb,
despised substance of divinest show :
just opposite to what thou justly seem'st,
a damned saint, an honourable villain
o nature what hadst thou do in hell
when thou didst bower the spirit of a fiend,
in mortal paradise of such sweet flesh ?
was ever book containing such vile matter
so fairly bound ? o that deceit should dwell
in such a porpeous palace.

Nice quote. You can copy and paste quotes into your posts.

O serpent heart, hid with a flowering face!
Did ever dragon keep so fair a cave?
Beautiful tyrant! fiend angelical!
Dove-feather'd raven! wolvish-ravening lamb!
Despised substance of divinest show!
Just opposite to what thou justly seem'st,
A damned saint, an honourable villain!
O nature, what hadst thou to do in hell,
When thou didst bower the spirit of a fiend
In moral paradise of such sweet flesh?
Was ever book containing such vile matter
So fairly bound? O that deceit should dwell
In such a gorgeous palace!
~William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, Juliet in Act 3. Scene II

I knew that sounded familiar. I just couldn't place it. Thanks Flametree for putting a name to it.
