Love is too young to know what conscience is,
Yet who knows not conscience is born of love?
Then, gentle cheater, urge not my amiss,
Lest guilty of my faults thy sweet self prove:
For, thou betraying me, I do betray
My nobler part to my gross body\'s treason;
My soul doth tell my body that he may
Triumph in love; flesh stays no farther reason,
But rising at thy name doth point out thee,
As his triumphant prize. Proud of this pride,
He is contented thy poor drudge to be,
To stand in thy affairs, fall by thy side.
No want of conscience hold it that I call
Her \'love,\' for whose dear love I rise and fall.
No, this trick won\'t work...How on earth are you ever going to explain
in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as
first love? --Albert Einstein
Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.
O truant Muse what shall be thy amends
For thy neglect of truth in beauty dy\'d?
Both truth and beauty on my love depends;
So dost thou too, and therein dignified.
Make answer Muse: wilt thou not haply say,
\'Truth needs no colour, with his colour fix\'d;
Beauty no pencil, beauty\'s truth to lay;
But best is best, if never intermix\'d\'?
Because he needs no praise, wilt thou be dumb?
Excuse not silence so, for\'t lies in thee
To make him much outlive a gilded tomb
And to be prais\'d of ages yet to be.
Then do thy office, Muse; I teach thee how
To make him seem long hence as he shows now.
