which is why she'd just rather forget than go through the pain of being in love. At least Heloise has the memories to remind her that she is still alive. - Friends: Eloisa and Abelard were real people, star-crossed lovers whose punishment for love was the nunnery and the monastery.

Thank you 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' for letting me come across it: 'How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!

Eloisa to Abelard. Alexander Pope (1688

Fair eyes, and tempting looks which yet I view! Should at my feet the world's great master fall, Himself, his throne, his world, I'd scorn 'em all: Not Caesar's empress would I deign to prove; No, make me mistress to the man I love; If there be yet another name more free, More fond than mistress, make me that to thee!

So I read it again, this time aloud, and this time I truly sang it. Too soon they taught me 'twas no sin to love.
