    Youth is ever apt to judge in haste,
    And lose the medium in the wild extreme,
    Do not repent, but regulate your passion:
    Though love is reason, its excess is rage.
    Give me, at least, your promise to reflect,
    In cool, impartial solitude, and still.
    No last decision till we meet again.
    Source: Alzira (1736) Act IV, Scene 1.
