Because no matter how eloquent you are, Goethe said it first and better

"A warmhearted youth becomes strongly attached to a girl: he spends every hour of the day in her company, lavishes all his energies and his fortune to prove that he is wholly devoted to her. Along comes some Philistine, a man of position and respectability, and says to him: 'My good young friend, I shall give you an analogy, to love is human but you must love within human bounds. Divide your time: devote a portion to your business and give the hours of recreation to your sweetheart'...If he was to follow this advice, he might become a useful member of society...but it is all over with his love, and, if he be an artist, with his art."
The Sorrows of Young Werther Goethe
