Fools and Slaves

So I recently finished reading A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott (great book by the way... nothing like Little Women) and I got some food for thought from two of the main, male characters:

Tempest: "I was thinking what a curious thing love is; only a sentiment and yet it has power to make fools of men and slaves of women."

Ignatious: "The more I love her the worthier of her I will endeavor to become by my own integrity of soul."

You can see from my choice of quotes that I’m all sentimental, but I'm curious--do either of these resonate with you?
