abelard and heloise (requested by historiacalamitatum)

all men, i believe, are under a necessity of paying tribute at some time or other to love, and it is vain to strive to avoid it. i was a philosopher, yet this tyrant of the mind triumphed over all my wisdom; his darts were of greater force than all my reasonings, and with a sweet constraint he led me wherever he pleased.
