C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Nun
 
        Love, to her ear, was but a name,
Combin’d with vanity and shame;
Her hopes, her fears, her joys, were all
Bounded within the cloister wall.
Scott.    
  1
        Know of your youth, examine well your blood,
Whether, if you yield not to your father’s choice,
You can endure the livery of a nun;
For aye to be in shady cloister mewed;
To live a barren sister all your life,
Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.
Thrice blessed they, that master so their blood,
To undergo such maiden pilgrimage.
Shakespeare.
