”And so ended his affection”, said Elizabeth impatiently .”There has been many a one, I fancy, overcome in the same way. I wonder who first discovered the efficacy of poetry in driving away love!”
”I have been used to consider poetry as the food of love,” said Darcy.
”Of a fine, stout, healthy love it may. Everything nourishes what is strong already. But if it be only a slight, thin sort of inclination, I am convinced that one good sonnet will starve it entirely away.” (Charles Bingley, Elizabeth Bennet, Fitzwilliam Darcy)
