Troilus & Criseyde – Book 2, v. 113

And then there are these wicked tongues whose fashion
Is to speak harm; and men are so untrue;
Immediately they cease to feel their passion,
They cease to love; they’re off to love anew;
But harm that’s done is done, that’s certain too:
Those are the very ones that passion rends;
But violent delights have violent ends.
