"It is easier ..." Quote of Joseph Addison

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

It is easier for an artful Man, who is not in Love, to persuade his Mistress he has a Passion for her, and to succeed in his Pursuits, than for one who loves with the greatest Violence. True Love hath ten thousand Griefs, Impatiencies and Resentments, that render a Man unamiable in the Eyes of the Person whose Affection he sollicits.

Joseph Addison
Joseph Addison (1672-1719), British author. The Spectator, No. 261 (1711).
