miserable is the man who loves a woman and takes her for a wife, pouring at her feet the sweat of his skin and the blood of his body and the life of his heart, and placing in her hands the fruit of his toil and the revenue of his diligence; for when he slowly wakes up, he finds that the heart, which he endeavored to buy, is given freely and in sincerity to another man for the enjoyment of its hidden secrets and deepest love.

miserable is the woman who arises from the inattentiveness and restlessness of youth and finds herself in the home of a man showering her with glittering gold and precious gifts and according her all the honors and grace of lavish entertainment but unable to satisfy her soul with the heavenly wine God pours from the eyes of a man into the heart of a woman.
