De Sevrac had so long borne a load of calamities, that his strength of mind could scarcely endure their least accumulation; for, it is a strange caprice of nature, that, by repetition, the most refined pleasures produce satiety, their sameness rendering them insipid, and less capable of exciting sensation; while pangs are perpetually new; and the throb of anguish becomes more acute, with every augmentation of suffering.

The Works of Mary Robinson. Hubert de Sevrac, A Romance, of the Eighteenth Century (1796), Volume II
