A Quote by William Shakespeare on music, sweetness, desire, love, repetition, and orsinio

That strain again! It had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour! Enough; no more:
'Tis not so sweet as it was before.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
