My father had a daughter loved a man,
As it might be, perhaps, were I a woman,
I should your lordship.
– William Shakespeare
Twelfth Night, Act 2, Scene 4. Hiding uncomfortably behind her disguise as Cesario, Viola hints at her true feelings to Orsino. Orsino thinks they are speaking man to man and Cesario is speaking about a sister. But Viola is talking about her love for the unknowing Orsino, and comes very close to admitting it to him here.
