I Show More Craft Than Love?

In one of the plays written by Shakespeare, a character says the line 'I Show More Craft Than Love.'
What character says that line and what play does it belong to?
I'm doing a crossword puzzle and I don't know the answer.
Have you ever heard the line 'I Show More Craft Than Love' before? Can you please help me with this literature question?

The text belongs to the play Troilus and Cressida and it's from line 124.
Cressida becomes increasingly affected by her own qualities, saying 'I show more craft than love.'
Here's the entire paragraph from the play.

Perchance, my lord, I show more craft than love;
And fell so roundly to a large confession,
To angle for your thoughts: but you are wise,
Or else you love not, for to be wise and love
Exceeds man's might; that dwells with gods above.

I read the play a few years ago but I didn't remember where the line 'I Show More Craft Than Love' was from.
It's a wonderful piece of writing.

It's from Troilus and Cressida. Cressida says it at some point in Act III, I believe.

Hope that helps.
