The More She Spurns My Love [Shakespeare For You]

🎭 And notwithstanding all her sudden quips,
The least whereof would quell a lover’s hope,
Yet, spaniel-like, the more she spurns my love,
The more it grows and fawneth on her still.

— Proteus, Two Gentlemen of Verona 4-2


Proteus is in agony.  The feeling must be like having sold your soul to the devil and yet no good outcome has been made.  Anxiety.
