Aaron Hill Quote

Youth is ever apt to judge in haste,
And lose the medium in the wild extreme,
Do not repent, but regulate your passion:
Though love is reason, its excess is rage.
Give me, at least, your promise to reflect,
In cool, impartial solitude, and still.
No last decision till we meet again.


Don Alvarez in Act IV, Scene 1. - Alzira : A Tragedy (1736)
