Her History

And what's her history?
A blank, my lord.  She never told her love,
But let concealment, life a worm i' the bud,
Feed on her damask cheek: she pin'd in thought,
And with a green and yellow melancholy,
She sat like Patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief.
-Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

Love which is made to be silent is most painful for it goes against the best of our nature.

Conventionality is not morality.
-Charlotte Bronte
