One woman is fair, yet I am well; another is wise, yet I am well; another virtuous, yet I am well; but till all graces be in one woman, one woman shall not come in my grace. Rich she shall be, that's certain; wise, or I'll none; virtuous, or I'll never cheapen her; fair, or I'll never look on her; mild, or come not near me; noble, or not I for an angel; of good discourse, an excellent musician, and her hair shall be of what color it please God.

        [Eyes]

Good Margaret, run thee to the parlor.
  There shalt thou find my cousin Beatrice
    Proposing with the Prince and Claudio.
      Whisper her ear and tell her, I and Ursley
        Walk in the orchard, and our whole discourse
          Is all of her. Say that thou overheard'st us;
            And bid her steal into the pleached bower,
              Where honeysuckles, ripened by the sun,
                Forbid the sun to enter--like favorites,
                  Made proud by princes, that advance their pride
                    Against that power that bred it. There will she hide her
                      To listen our propose. This is thy office.
                        Bear thee well in it and leave us alone.
      - Much Ado About Nothing (Hero at III, i)
        [Honeysuckles]
