Love Knot Ring Meaning

Robert asks…

I need a monologue please.?

Hey, I need a dramatic monologue for my GCSE Course. It needs to be around 3 minutes long and about either romance or a sad thing. I am female and would like a female character. Please don’t send links to web archives because I’ve tried there and found I’m incredibly indecisive. Thank you :)

LoveKnots answers:

Viola
Verse
Twelfth Night, Or What You Will

I left no ring with her: what means this lady?
Fortune forbid my outside have not charm’d her!
She made good view of me; indeed, so much,
That sure methought her eyes had lost her tongue,
For she did speak in starts distractedly.
She loves me, sure; the cunning of her passion
Invites me in this churlish messenger.
None of my lord’s ring! Why, he sent her none.
I am the man: if it be so, as ’tis,
Poor lady, she were better love a dream.
Disguise, I see, thou art a wickedness,
Wherein the pregnant enemy does much.
How easy is it for the proper-false
In women’s waxen hearts to set their forms!
Alas, our frailty is the cause, not we!
For such as we are made of, such we be.
How will this fadge? My master loves her dearly;
And I, poor monster, fond as much on him;
And she, mistaken, seems to dote on me.
What will become of this? As I am man,
My state is desperate for my master’s love;
As I am woman,.now alas the day!.
What thriftless sighs shall poor Olivia breathe!
O time! Thou must untangle this, not I;
It is too hard a knot for me to untie!

Juliet
Verse
Romeo and Juliet

Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again.
I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins,
That almost freezes up the heat of life:
I’ll call them back again to comfort me:
Nurse! What should she do here?
My dismal scene I needs must act alone.
Come, vial.
What if this mixture do not work at all?
Shall I be married then to-morrow morning?
No, no: this shall forbid it: lie thou there.
[Laying down her dagger]
What if it be a poison, which the friar
Subtly hath minister’d to have me dead,
Lest in this marriage he should be dishonour’d,
Because he married me before to Romeo?
I fear it is: and yet, methinks, it should not,
For he hath still been tried a holy man.
How if, when I am laid into the tomb,
I wake before the time that Romeo
Come to redeem me? There’s a fearful point!
Shall I not, then, be stifled in the vault,
To whose foul mouth no healthsome air breathes in,
And there die strangled ere my Romeo comes?
Or, if I live, is it not very like,
The horrible conceit of death and night,
Together with the terror of the place,.
As in a vault, an ancient receptacle,
Where, for these many hundred years, the bones
Of all my buried ancestors are packed:
Where bloody Tybalt, yet but green in earth,
Lies festering in his shroud; where, as they say,
At some hours in the night spirits resort;.
Alack, alack, is it not like that I,
So early waking, what with loathsome smells,
And shrieks like mandrakes’ torn out of the earth,
That living mortals, hearing them, run mad:.
O, if I wake, shall I not be distraught,
Environed with all these hideous fears?
And madly play with my forefather’s joints?
And pluck the mangled Tybalt from his shroud?
And, in this rage, with some great kinsman’s bone,
As with a club, dash out my desperate brains?
O, look! Methinks I see my cousin’s ghost
Seeking out Romeo, that did spit his body
Upon a rapier’s point: stay, Tybalt, stay!
Romeo, I come! This do I drink to thee.

Ken asks…

I need halp! Does anybody know a FEMALE soliloquy? I have to recite one for my theatre class…?

Thanks for your help!!

LoveKnots answers:

Technically, a soliloquy is said alone on stage, so Lady Macbeth and Kate’s speeches don’t count. Lots of modern text plays have soliloquies in them, but they’re not my forte, so I’ll give you a few from Shakespeare.

Ophelia has one, late in Hamlet:

O, what a noble mind is here o’erthrown!
The courtier’s, soldier’s, scholar’s, eye, tongue, sword;
The expectancy and rose of the fair state,
The glass of fashion and the mould of form,
The observed of all observers, quite, quite down!
And I, of ladies most deject and wretched,
That suck’d the honey of his music vows,
Now see that noble and most sovereign reason,
Like sweet bells jangled, out of tune and harsh;
That unmatch’d form and feature of blown youth
Blasted with ecstasy: O, woe is me,
To have seen what I have seen, see what I see!

And Viola has a comic one in Twelfth Night:

I left no ring with her: what means this lady?
Fortune forbid my outside have not charm’d her!
She made good view of me; indeed, so much,
That sure methought her eyes had lost her tongue,
For she did speak in starts distractedly.
She loves me, sure; the cunning of her passion
Invites me in this churlish messenger.
None of my lord’s ring! Why, he sent her none.
I am the man: if it be so, as ’tis,
Poor lady, she were better love a dream.
Disguise, I see, thou art a wickedness,
Wherein the pregnant enemy does much.
How easy is it for the proper-false
In women’s waxen hearts to set their forms!
Alas, our frailty is the cause, not we!
For such as we are made of, such we be.
How will this fadge? My master loves her dearly;
And I, poor monster, fond as much on him;
And she, mistaken, seems to dote on me.
What will become of this? As I am man,
My state is desperate for my master’s love;
As I am woman,–now alas the day!–
What thriftless sighs shall poor Olivia breathe!
O time! Thou must untangle this, not I;
It is too hard a knot for me to untie!

And finally, there’s no reason to limit yourself to female soliloquies, just because you’re a girl. Shakespeare wrote mostly for men because that’s what he had to work with. What would Hamlet or Claudius or Macbeth have been like had Shakespeare had a woman to write for? Do one of their monologues, and play it as a woman. Be insightful.

Lizzie asks…

did it just happen or did it take a while?

my boyfriend has been through alot,and his concept of marriage is all wrong.Im trying to show im the better sides of marriage,what you can get out of it and what it means.every marriage he has seen has ended badly.I personally would love to get married and its a big deal for me and he has mixed thoughts.ive talked to him about it and he has questions that i try to answer for him.he thinks that once you get married your relationship will fail and that it is very expensive,hes also concerned because of medical bills i have,hes affraid that they will go after him for them if we do get married.Ive told him how i felt about the subject.and he knows i dont want a big wedding or a fancy ring,im more into spending the rest of my life with him. well im asking for your thoughts on this and also asking how long did it take befor you tied the knot.weve been dating for over 2 years and have lived together for a year and a half and have put everything into our relationship.im 23 and hes 28..

Chris asks…

What is love???? Help?

How I know if I’m in love? What is love?
how do i know if im in love with someone? a girl that is…

LoveKnots answers:

Some get butterflies around him but I do get a few knots in my stomach you know right before he rings the door bell and you’re standing on the other side excited to see him…. Or I guess rather than feeling the butterflies I smile ALOT when im with him because he always knows how to make me smile and make me feel good about myself (you look beautiful tonight… Just sweet comments like that)
Love is something that cannot be explained really, its just that invisible chemical connection that two people have by the way that they look at each other, or just ‘know’ about what they other person is thinking just by a look and smile … Love I guess makes you want to be a better and good person at the end of the day, you go to bed happy and you but your partner’s happiness first.
Love I guess is when two people are united and they become one, always taking care of each other, respecting each other…. Its not just about sex, its not about meeting one person dating them for a few years and breaking up…its not about cheating on your bf/gf for someone better…that is where you truly know whether or not a person was in love with you in the first place. If your bf/gf still kisses you on your worst days.. Or respects your wishes (like you’re not ready for sex till marriage for example) … Or they appreciate your presence and compagny of just doing things and hanging out together. Love is so much more than just pleasure… Its a much GREATER connection you have with the other person … I guess like how Katy Perry for example would explain it “a missing puzzle piece” its like finding your other half, the half that you were missing…for some it could be the one who encourages, motivates a person to achieve their dreams or helps them achieve it, they do sweet things for you just to make your day and make you happy…they realize that you’re the person that they want to be with and love you for all your faults, past, flaws etc…“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly” meaning that … We need that person… That is all we need… Materialistic things like money, looks, status in life, fame etc…dont mean anything or doesn’t compare when you’re with that one person…kinda like what Adam Lambert says, “if I had you, then money fame and fortune never could compete”…
Love is also about trust…its about allowing that other person to become apart of you- you trust them, you’re honest, you’re open and talk to them regardless of what is on your mind..you can say ANYTHING …and you’ll let that person comfort you when your’e sad, or give you words of advice when you’re in tough situations … Those are other factors of Love
You know you’re in love when you allow the person the be apart of your life. You can reply and depend on them. You trust them .. You put nothing else above them (no other person I mean .. ) You want to make them happy! You care for them even when they are sick or they have a bad day or look their worst! No materialistic thing can compare to them!!!You for through FAR extremeties just to please them, impress them, make them happy, show them that you care… Apart of you is at last complete.
Really… This is as best as I can explain “Love” in words or try to describe it … You will really know when its the right time with the right person.
Best of Luck! And I hope this sort of helped…Im terribly sorry if it sounded like a speech >.<"

Laura asks…

Engaged with no wedding date set.?

My fiancé and I have been engaged for over a year and still haven’t sent a date. We love each other and feel married. He is definitely the love of my life, but the thought of the dress/ring and “i do” makes me ill… what does this mean? Any advice for this unmotivated bride to be?

LoveKnots answers:

You’re not alone. My fiance and I have also been engaged for some time with no date set. I guess you need to ask your self WHY does the thought of the actual “I do” make you ill… The dress/ring are totally optional…your choice, but if the I DO part makes you queasy…is he the right guy for you?? Are your parents divorced? If they are and it wasn’t pretty, maybe you’re feeling nervous and scared as a result of that … Hey, there’s no rush. If you’re both happy…you’ll know when and if it’s the right time to tie that noose….I mean knot. :)

Linda asks…

What is the feminist message in Cousin Kate?

WAS a cottage maiden
Hardened by sun and air,
Contented with my cottage mates,
Not mindful I was fair.
Why did a great lord find me out,
And praise my flaxen hair?
Why did a great lord find me out
To fill my heart with care?

He lured me to his palace home–
Woe’s me for joy thereof–
To lead a shameless shameful life,
His plaything and his love.
He wore me like a silken knot,
He changed me like a glove;
So now I moan, an unclean thing,
Who might have been a dove.

O Lady Kate, my cousin Kate,
You grew more fair than I:
He saw you at your father’s gate,
Chose you, and cast me by.
He watched your steps along the lane,
Your work among the rye;
He lifted you from mean estate
To sit with him on high.

Because you were so good and pure
He bound you with his ring:
The neighbours call you good and pure,
Call me an outcast thing.
Even so I sit and howl in dust,
You sit in gold and sing:
Now which of us has tenderer heart?
You had the stronger wing.

O cousin Kate, my love was true,
Your love was writ in sand:
If he had fooled not me but you,
If you stood where I stand,
He’d not have won me with his love
Nor bought me with his land;
I would have spit into his face
And not have taken his hand.

Yet I’ve a gift you have not got,
And seem not like to get:
For all your clothes and wedding-ring
I’ve little doubt you fret.
My fair-haired son, my shame, my pride,
Cling closer, closer yet:
Your father would give lands for one
To wear his coronet.

LoveKnots answers:

The feminist message in this poem is that Cousin Kate is a strong and independent woman, and that she strives to be equal to men – which is the essence of feminism..!!

Joseph asks…

Why am I so twitchy and shaky?

I have felt really shaky and breathless all day, and I feel a lot like i need to move, even though I don’t want to more. I just fidget. i can’t stop with the twitchyness, I had a couple of beers and felt good but then its come back. knot in sstomach as well. and ache in shoulder. and ringing in ear. really breathy. taking lamotrigine and not depressed. need to get over this before I go away@!

LoveKnots answers:

Could be all sorts knowing that people eat a lot of junk start there
decent nutrition study and apply ==magnesium
spiritual healing
reiki
get your blood checked =see g.p
what is paramount is to choose your healing route—— carefully– be really aware that the druggs/meds treatment for this can be damaging to you and go on for years with no improvement and massive damaging detrimental side effects to you from meds .

Do read this very carefully.

Evaluate all of this info well –it will save —years of suffering = if you apply it ..

All treatment recommended by the doctors should be tested and approved and quite rightly so.
That makes sense right
Now then .it costs millions of pounds to test and approve treatments because of the possible damage to people..

Drug companies Fund most testing and will only and I mean only look at treatments, which show the promise of good deal of a profit, –they will actively dismiss any therapy which does not have profit potential— thus your doctor will only recommend therapies that have been tested with profit potential in them.

Despite The fact that some of these other therapies mentioned here do have overwhelming benefits some, which have saved needless amputations, needless pain and trauma, and much loss of life.

Drugs are not the answer for depression with mind altering damaging chemicals or any other mental illness.

This is a fundamental principle try you grasp this fully –

This does not help you though when you are ill and suffering—not hearing about therapies which can help from a person you look up to and trust

Have you heard your local doctor recommend, Massage Spiritual healing, Herbs, Light therapy, Colour therapy, the violet ray therapy, Osteopathy, Electrical Frequency devices. Karma therapy

These therapies will work for many complaints of a so called mental nature
we have thousands of testimonials and results showing years of successful applications

Do this and I will guarantee improvements to you inside a day its that simple,

Each of these therapies can have a very beneficial influence on you.
Print this all off save it and enact it and share it — of course someone to help you get these therapies in your life is invaluable but do not be swayed by anyone trying for short cuts …
.
1,get someone to massage your back and legs at least 3 times a week use peanut oil or a mix of 50-50 olive and peanut oil.

2 use the violet ray machine an Edgar Cayce device google search this — 3 times a week on the other days especially on the spine….we use it every day with very positive results

3.get a tent sleep out side 3times a week utilising earth energy – nature can help big time especially with how you feel how much energy you have

4 study and apply good nutrition— adele davis books =protein minerals =iron essential fatty acids omega 3 6 9 protein etc

5 ensure your thyroid is working well

6 ensure you do at least I hr per day some kind of voluntary work when you are able..the reasons you are ill , or poor or have allsorts of bad things happen to you is because of karma —–usually from past lives but some from this one –voluntary work will offset your mistakes— how much it offsets well that is down to god and how much you do. Healing us is in direct proportion to the help we give others ie your healing comes with helping others achieve theirs so if people are doing very little in helping others —they suffer more and longer…and if they are doing a lot they get well faster….so now you know what to do ,,and like a lot of us are already doing being of service.

7 be amongst people who are giving, friendly who have time for you who love you , choose your friends well

8 be or get to a place which personally love or like

9 get and do some work which you like or love

10 ensure you do no acts which hurt or inflict on anyone –don’t want to add to your karma do we !!!

11 spiritual healing and reiki find good therapists who offer this service in your area

12 think good positive thoughts, laughter, look at comedy, play good uplifting music,

13 avoid at all costs exposure to violence, murders, suffering ,death ,tragedies, -feed upon good things uplifting things, things that feel like a breath of fresh air..

14 Positive affirmation- that’s right programme your self in the mirror , thoughts are things words are things actions are things , all have influence, few people realise these things can have an effect on themselves .

15 a detox —— toxins can influence how you feel big time

16 hugs get plenty of them in your daily life you would be amazed at how people feel after a few decent hugs…
.
17 loads of exercise running walking climbing but something which you enjoy

18 rid yourselves of all aspartame laden foods and drink and many additives get back to a wholesome organic diet diet –study an
