im really stuck on these particular 3, please and thank you

Shakespeare, The history of Troilus and Cressida Act 1 Scene 1 lines 52-56

"her eyes, her hair, her check, her gait, her voice;

Handlest in thy discourse O! that her hand,

In whose comparison all whites are ink

Writing their own reproach; to whose soft seizure

The cygnet's down is harsh..."

Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Scene 3 lines 36-39

"on the white wonder of dear Juliet's hand, may seize

And steal immortal blessing from her lips,

Who, even in pure and vestal modesty

Still blush, as thinking their own kisses sin"

Shakespeare The Tempest Act V, Scene 1 lines 182-184

O, wonder!

How goodly creatures are there here!

How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,

That has such people in it!
