Love vs. Reason in A Midsummer Night's Dream

AMSND-Y0LONT

In Act III, Bottom makes the comment, "to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays." In other words, love is irrational down to its core.

Which of the following BEST supports Bottom's assertion about love?

A

“I had no judgment when to her I swore.” (3.2.134)

B

“So methinks: / And I have found Demetrius like a jewel, / Mine own and not mine own.” (4.1.187)

C

“Reason becomes the marshal to my will, / And leads me to your eyes, where I o'erlook / Love's stories written in Love's richest book.” (2.2.120)

D

“The will of man is by his reason sway'd; / And reason says you are the worthier maid.” (2.2.115)

E

“Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind:” (1.1.234)
