"O, my Eloisa, were it possible for this talisman to affect your senses with the phrenzy and illusion of mine. But why is it not possible? why may not those impressions, which the mind darts forth with such rapidity, reach as far as Eloisa?"
— Rousseau, Jean-Jacques (1712-1778); Kenrick, William (1729/30-1779)
(II, p. 103)
