Which lines from the play would support the theme that love will cause a person to act completely ridiculous and often in ways that go against character?


“Turn melancholy forth to funerals; / The pale companion is not for our pomp.” (1.1.14)


“Hippolyta, I woo'd thee with my sword, / And won thy love, doing thee injuries;” (1.1.16)


“The course of true love never did run smooth;” (1.1.134)


“If then true lovers have been ever cross'd, / It stands as an edict in destiny:” (1.1.150)


“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, / Because in choice he is so oft beguiled. / As waggish boys in game themselves forswear, / So the boy / Love is perjured every where:” (1.1.236)
