    • 1600, William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act I, Scene I:
      LYSANDER
      Ah me! for aught that I could ever read,
      Could ever hear by tale or history,
      The course of true love never did run smooth:
      But either it was different in blood,--
      HERMIA
      O cross! too high to be enthrall'd to low!
      LYSANDER
      Or else misgraffed in respect of years;--
      HERMIA
      O spite! too old to be engag'd to young!
