Violent delights (o dell’amore “temperato”)

These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume: the sweetest honey
Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
And in the taste confounds the appetite:
Therefore love moderately; long love doth so;
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.
(R&J, II,6)
(grazie a Giorgia per avermelo fatto tornare alla mente)
