  • the tongue

    An oven that is stopped, or river stayed,
    Burneth more hotly, swelleth with more rage;
    So of conceal├Ęd sorrow may be said,
    Free vent of words love's fire doth assuage;
    But when the heart's attorney once is mute,
    The client breaks, as desperate in his suit.

    Shakespeare: "Venus and Adonis", lines 331-336.
