Doubt thou the stars are fire:
Doubt that the sun doth move:
Doubt truth to be a liar:
But never doubt I love.
We love being in love, that's the truth on't.
W. M. Thackeray
Love consists in desiring to give what is our own to another and
feeling his delight as our own.
Alas! the love of a women! it is known
To be a lovely and a fearful thing.
George Gordon, Lord Byron
All mankind love a lover.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If thou remember'st not the slightest folly
That ever love did make thee run into,
Thou hast not loved.
from "As You Like It"
Love is life...And if you miss love, you miss life.
Perfect love is rare indeed... To be a lover will require that you
continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of
the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the acceptance of the
saint, the tolerance of the scholar, and the fortitude of the
Love seeketh not itself to please,
Nor for itself hath any care,
But for another gives its case,
And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
William Blake 1757-1827
