Shakespeare (Not) in Love

Can you name the Shakespeare character who expresses the unhappy view of love?

The worst fault you have is to be in love.
He is already dead, stabbed with a white wench’s black eye, run through the ear with a love song, the very pin of his heart cleft with the blind bow-boy’s butt-shaft.
Reason and love keep little company together nowadays. The more the pity that some honest neighbors will not make them friends.
So I to her, and so she yields to me, for I am rough and woo not like a babe.
I take this, that you call love, to be a sect or scion.
I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.
To be wise and love exceeds man’s might.
No, do thy worst, blind Cupid, I'll not love.
He is not like to marry me well; and not being well married, it will be a good excuse for me hereafter to leave my wife.
O me! You juggler! You cankerblossom! You thief of love!
I pray you do not fall in love with me, for I am falser than vows made in wine. Besides, I like you not.
My only love sprung from my only hate. Too early seen unknown, and known too late.
The oath of a lover is no stronger than the word of a tapster.
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged cupid painted blind.
Then must you speak of one that loved not wisely, but too well.
Is love a tender thing? It is too rough, too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.
I do suffer love indeed, for I love thee against my will.
Tempt not too much the hatred of my spirit, for I am sick when I do look on thee.
