Theseus: Our wedding day is almost here, my beautiful Hippolyta. We’ll be getting married in four day, on the day of the new moon. But it seems to me that the days are passing too slowly-the old moon is taking too long to fade away! That old, slow moon is keeping me from getting what I want, just like an old window makes her stepson wait to get his inheritance. Act l, scene 1, line 5.
