Love is a Little Thief

Love is a little thief, a little serpent is love; he takes away your heart’s peace, or gives it to you, just as he pleases. No sooner Amore & Psychehas he opened a path through your eyes to your heart, than he chains up your soul and takes away your freedom. He brings sweetness and delight if you let him have his way, but he’ll fill you with loathing if you resist. If he takes up residence in your breast, if he nips you here, do everything he asks, as I shall do too.

Dorabella from Cosi Fan Tutte, Music Composed by Mozart, Libretto by da Ponte
