    Troilus and Cressida (Modern)

    Enter Paris, Troilus, Aeneas, Deiphobus, Antenor, and Diomed.
    It is great morning, and the hour prefixed
    Of her delivery to this valiant Greek
    Comes fast upon. Good my brother Troilus,
    Tell you the lady what she is to do
    And haste her to the purpose.
    Walk into her house.
    I'll bring her to the Grecian presently;
    And, to his hand, when I deliver her,
    Think it an altar, and thy brother Troilus
    A priest, there offering to it his heart.
    I know what 'tis to love,
    And would, as I shall pity, I could help.
    Please you walk in, my lords.
