A Quote by Joseph Story on courtship, jealousy, and laws

I will not say with Lord Hale, that "The Law will admit of no rival" . . . but I will say that it is a jealous mistress, and requires a long and constant courtship. It is not to be won by trifling favors, but by lavish homage.

Joseph Story (1779 - 1845)
