Iresistible reason for seeing her

I have often resolved not to see her so frequently. But who could keep such a resolution? Every day I succumb to temptation, and promise faithfully that tomorrow I will really stay away; but when tomorrow comes, I find some irresistible reason for seeing her, and before I can account for it, I am with her again.

Goethe, The Sorrows of Young Werther, July 26, Book I
