O time, thou must untangle this, not I.
It is too hard a knot for me t’ untie.
– William Shakespeare
Twelfth Night, Act 2, Scene 2. Viola, disguised as the young man Cesario, laments the complicated and difficult situation she finds herself in. She loves her master Orsino, who loves Olivia, who in turn loves Viola thinking she is a man. The quote foreshadows how time will intervene in the end to resolve the conflicts.
