So long as chastity is preserved, it is respected; it is despised only after having been lost.[Tant qu’on la conserve on la respecte; on ne la méprise qu’après l’avoir perdue.]
Chastity is a virtue with some, but with many almost a vice. These are continent, to be sure: but doggish lust looketh enviously out of all that they do. Even into the heights of their virtue and into their cold spirit doth this creature follow them, with its discord.
