Quote #10

O Proteus, let this habit make thee blush!
Be thou ashamed that I have took upon me
Such an immodest raiment, if shame live
In a disguise of love:
It is the lesser blot, modesty finds,
Women to change their shapes than men their minds. (5.4.7)

When Julia reveals her true identity to Proteus, she declares that his cheating and infidelity are the worst kind of betrayal – worse than her own deception when she let him believe she was a boy ("Sebastian").
