Which of the following lines from the play are quite literally played out in the woods on the midsummer's night?
“If then true lovers have been ever cross'd, / It stands as an edict in destiny: / Then let us teach our trial patience, / Because it is a customary cross,” (1.1.150)
“Ay me! for aught that I could ever read, / Could ever hear by tale or history, / The course of true love never did run smooth;” (1.1.132)
“Nor hath Love's mind of any judgement taste; / Wings and no eyes figure unheedy haste: / And therefore is Love said to be a child,” (1.1.236)
“Or, if there were a sympathy in choice, / War, death, or sickness did lay siege to it, / Making it momentany as a sound, / Swift as a shadow, short as any dream;” (1.1.141)
“Sickness is catching: / O, were favour so,” (1.1.186)
