'Tis impossible to love and cease to love (and love another) and yet return again to the first passion, though the person have all the charms or a thousand times more than it had when it first conquered.

One may a while suffer the flame to languish, but there may be a reviving spark in the ashes raked up that may burn anew, but when 'tis quite extinguished it never returns or rekindles.
