Great Regulars: Faint heart never won fair maiden.

The heroism and the folly of our quest are brilliantly caught in this poem by Robert Browning. It begins on a note of brave defiance that immediately awakens our pity: "You'll love me yet!" It's as if Romeo were shouting up at Juliet's balcony, only to see her roll her eyes with boredom and quickly draw the curtains.

But love is a waiting game.
