A Quote by Samuel Butler on generosity, love, and wine

All love at first, like generous wine, Ferments and frets until 'tis fine; But when 'tis settled on the lee, And from th' impurer matter free, Becomes the richer still the older, And proves the pleasanter the colder.

Samuel Butler (1612 - 1680)
