I never knew before what such a love as you have made me feel was.

I did not believe in it, my fancy was afraid of it, lest it should burn me up.

But if you will fully love me, though there may be some fire,

it will not be more than we can bear when moistened and bedewed with Pleasures.

(John Keats letter to Fanny Brawne, 8 July 1819)
