Love's Labour's Lost
KING: You three, Berowne, Dumain, and Longaville,
Have sworn for three years' term to live with me
ARMADO: What great men have been in love?
MOTH: Hercules, master.
ARMADO: Most sweet Hercules! More authority, dear boy, name more; and, sweet my child, let them be men of good repute and carriage. (1.2.39-41)
ARMADO: Yet was Samson so tempted, and he had an excellent strength; yet was Solomon so seduced, and he had a very good wit. Cupid's butt-shaft is too hard for Hercules' club, and therefore too much odds for a Spaniard's rapier. (1.2.92)
