Found this delightful little quote today in 'The Passionate Shepherd' by Virgil, part of his 'Eclogues'. The Shepherd has fallen in love with Alexis and everyone tells him she is beyond his reach:
"The wild-eyed lioness pursues the wolf; the wolf pursues the kid; the kid herself goes gambolling in search of flowering clover. And I chase you. Each is drawn on by what delights him most."
