THE GEM 5 JUNE 2016 :  Grief and passion are like floods raised in little brooks by a sudden rain. Dryden | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

 

Lust, like a lawless headlong flood, impregnated with ooze and mud, descending fast on every side, once mingles with the sacred tide, farewell the soul-enliv’ning scene! The banks that wore a smiling green, with rank defilement overspread, bewail their flow’ry beauties dead. (Cowper)
