Context from :The ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha

Chapter XIV

Wherein are inserted the Despairing verses of the dead shepherd, together with other incidentes not looked for

The Lay Of Chrysostom



And now I die, and since there is no hope
Of happiness for me in life or death,
Still to my fantasy I'll fondly cling.
I'll say that he is wise who loveth well,
And that the soul most free is that most bound
In thraldom to the ancient tyrant Love.

I'll say that she who is mine enemy
In that fair body hath as fair a mind,
And that her coldness is but my desert,
And that by virtue of the pain be sends
Love rules his kingdom with a gentle sway.
Thus, self-deluding, and in bondage sore,
And wearing out the wretched shred of life
To which I am reduced by her disdain,
I'll give this soul and body to the winds,
All hopeless of a crown of bliss in store.

Yeah. That's what they all feel under Love's anesthesia...
