NUNS
[ Also see Priests ]

Love, to her ear, was but a name,
  Combin'd with vanity and shame;
    Her hopes, her fears, her joys, were all
      Bounded within the cloister wall.
      - Sir Walter Scott

Know of your youth, examine well your blood,
  Whether, if you yield not to your father's choice,
    You can endure the livery of a nun;
      For aye to be in shady cloister mewed;
        To live a barren sister all your life,
          Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.
            Thrice blessed they, that master so their blood,
              To undergo such maiden pilgrimage.
      - William Shakespeare
