    Our kindred, though they be long ere they be wooed, they are constant being won; they are burrs, I can tell you, they’ll stick where they are thrown.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    But who, alas! can love, and then be wise?
    Not that remorse did not oppose temptation;
    A little still she strove, and much repented,
    And whispering ‘I will ne’er consent’Mconsented.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
