“So love which by time and fancy is bred in an idle head is by time and fancy banished from the heart; or as the salamander which, being a long space nourished in the fire, at the last quenched it, so affection, having taken hold of the fancy and living as it were in the mind of the lover, in tract of time altereth and changeth the heat, and turneth it to chilliness.”
