Win
 
The man who seeks to win the fair,
(So custom says) must truth forbear;
Must fawn and flatter, cringe and lie,
And raise the goddess to the sky.
        Ed. Moore.—Fable 2.

That man that hath a tongue, I say, is no man,
If with his tongue he cannot win a woman.
        Shakespeare.—Two Gentlemen of Verona, Act III. Scene 1. (Valentine to the Duke.)
