Who wooed in haste, and means to wed at leisure
What's the origin of the phrase 'Who wooed in haste, and means to wed at leisure'?
From Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, 1596:
No shame but mine: I must, forsooth, be forced
To give my hand opposed against my heart
Unto a mad-brain rudesby full of spleen;
Who woo'd in haste and means to wed at leisure.
