A right fair mark, fair coz, is soonest hit

Benvolio
A right fair mark, fair coz, is soonest hit.
Romeo
Well in that hit you miss. She'll not be hit
With Cupid's arrow. She hath Dian's wit,
And, in strong proof of chastity well armed,
From love's weak childish bow she lives uncharmed.
She will not stay the siege of loving terms,
Nor bide th' encounter of assailing eyes,
Nor ope her lap to saint-seducing gold.
O, she is rich in beauty, only poor
That, when she dies, with beauty dies her store.

O, she is rich in beauty, only poor
That, when she dies, with beauty dies her store.
