Whippets in Love--Shakespeare

"Love is merely a madness, and I tell you deserves as well a dark house and a whip as madmen do, and the reason why they are not so punished and cured is that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love too."

  1. cool quote! i looked it up to see whether there was any commentary on whether Shakespeare knew much about whippets - but sadly it seems that the quote says "whippers" rather than "whippets"
