„When love once pleas admission to our hearts,
(In spite of all the virtue we can boast),
The woman that deliberates is lost.“

—  Joseph Addison politician, writer and playwright 1672 - 1719
Variant: "When love once pleads admission to our hearts..." Act IV, scene i. The last line has often been misreported as "He who hesitates is lost", a sentiment inspired by it but not penned by Addison. See Paul F. Boller, Jr., and John George, They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, & Misleading Attributions (1989), p. 3.
