Is it not more wise to listen to the voice of reason than the murmurings of the heart?

Why is this a good question?  Well, all of the characters in the aforementioned texts suffered greatly when they blindly succumbed to their passion instead of taking a moment to reflect upon the consequences of their hasty actions.
