Love ceases to be a pleasure when it ceases to be a secret.
One hour of right-down love is worth an age of dully living on.
Love's a thin Diet, nor will keep out Cold.
Since man with that inconstancy was born,
To love the absent, and the present scorn,
Why do we deck, why do we dress
For such a short-lived happiness?
Why do we put attraction on,
Since either way 'tis we must be undone?
As love is the most noble and divine passion of the soul, so is it that to which we may justly attribute all the real satisfactions of life, and without it, man is unfinished, and unhappy.
