Famous Quote by Sir Walter Raleigh

"Remember, that if thou marry for beauty, thou bindest thyself all thy life for that which perchance 
will neither last nor please thee one year; and when thou hast it, it will be to thee of no price at all;
for the desire dieth when it is attained, and the affection perisheth when it is satisfied."
Sir Walter Raleigh
