    You were taking your usual Sunday walk in your area's grassy plains. Suddenly, a swift bird glides high above you. It's a falcon. Its identity is revealed by its size and shape as it soars across the blue sky. Once the falcon reaches a certain point over the nearby lake, it tucks in its wings and drops down towards a flock of ducks. The ducks take notice of the falcon and begin to scatter.

    Thwarted in love, or what he thinks is his love for the Countess Olivia, Orsino opens the play with a sweet but cynical speech about the inconstancy of love. He basically says it’s just like appetite—what tastes good for a while then begins to be “not so sweet now as it was before.” He doesn’t compare love to any higher emotion or even hint that it has a spiritual dimension or the possibility of constancy.
