if you love someone, what should you see? nothing!

Valentine (V): I have loved her ever since I saw her.
Speed (S): If you love her, you cannot see her.
V: Why?
S: Because love is blind.
V: What should I see then?
S: Your own present folly, and her passing deformity: for he, being in love, could not see to garter his hose; and you, being in love, cannot see to put on your hose.

(From Two Gentlemen of Verona- William Shakespeare)
