I thought Poetry was the food of love?

Everytime I feel inspired to write a poem and give it someone I like, I read this and that puts an end to it.

Elizabeth Bennet: I wonder who first discovered the power of poetry in driving away love?

Mr. Darcy: I thought that poetry was the food of love.
Elizabeth Bennet: Of a fine stout love, it may. But if it is only a vague inclination I'm convinced one poor sonnet will kill it stone dead
Mr. Darcy: So what do you recommend to encourage affection?
Elizabeth Bennet: Dancing. Even if one's partner is barely tolerable.

So...I go swing dancing!
