O Woman!

“O woman! lovely woman!
Nature made thee
To temper man: we had been brutes without you.
Angels are painted fair, to look like you:
There’s in you all that we believe of heaven,—
Amazing brightness, purity, and truth,
Eternal joy, and everlasting love.”

By Thomas Otway, “Venice Preserved” Act i. Sc. 1.
