Aphorism

"Time is the best tamer of love." Do you have any idea where this phrase comes from originally?

I don't yet know what the original Italian or Latin is since I was working from a translation, but Ripa uses the phrase in the Iconologia. He really liked using older sources, so if he's including an aphoristic phrase, there's a decent chance he's quoting someone.
