'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies runs with one, walks gravely with another turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame it wounds one, another it kills like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning for there is no force able to resist it.

si dice dell'amore che a volte va, a volte vola con uno, cammina gravemente con un altro trasforma un terzo in ghiaccio e imposta un quarto in una fiamma che ferisce uno, un altro uccide come un fulmine inizia e finisce nello stesso momento di notte cede quel forte che ha assediato ma al mattino perché non c'è forza in grado di resistere.

ప్రేమ గురించి ఇది కొన్నిసార్లు వెళుతుంది, కొన్నిసార్లు ఒకదానితో ఒకటి ఎగురుతుంది, మరొకటి మూడవదిగా మంచుగా మారుతుంది, మరియు నాల్గవది మంటలో ఒకదానిని గాయపరుస్తుంది, మరొకటి మెరుపులా చంపి అదే క్షణంలో ముగుస్తుంది అది రాత్రిపూట ఆ కోట దిగుబడిని చేస్తుంది, అది ముట్టడి చేసింది, కాని ఉదయం దానిని అడ్డుకోగల శక్తి లేదు.
