References in classic literature ?
to subject her to the struggles of conflicting duty and inclination - to whichsoever side the latter might allure, or the former imperatively call her - whether she should deem it her duty to risk the slights and censures of the world, the sorrow and displeasure of those she loved, for a romantic idea of truth and constancy to me, or to sacrifice her individual wishes to the feelings of her friends and her own sense of prudence and the fitness of things?
It seeketh to allure by means of you, the many-too-many
There was nothing to allure her now; duty would be easy, and all the old calm purposes would reign peacefully once more.
