A classic courtly love sentiment from Cadenet
Provided that her great virtue increases, and is heard about, it doesn't matter to her if I find myself afflicted, nor how my affairs go. For it is good for her that I bear all the suffering, and I like when I can put her forth; it is good for her when she can make me languish and I like when I can advance her; she doesn't care that I feel bad, and I like it when she feels good.
