sionnach commented on the word heart's attorney
An oven that is stopped, or river stayed,
Burneth more hotly, swelleth with more rage;
So of concealèd 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.
