In peace, Love tunes the shepherd's reed;
  In war, he mounts the warrior's steed;
    In halls, in gay attire is seen;
      In hamlets, dances of the green.
        Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,
          And men below, and saints above;
            For love is heaven, and heaven is love.
      - Sir Walter Scott,
        The Lay of the Last Minstrel
         (canto III, st. 2)

Her blue eyes sought the west afar,
  For lovers love the western star.
      - Sir Walter Scott,
        The Lay of the Last Minstrel
         (canto III, st. 24)

True love's the gift which God has given
  To man alone beneath the heaven.
    . . . .
      It is the secret sympathy,
        The silver link, the silken tie,
          Which heart to heart, and mind to mind,
            In body and in soul can bind.
      - Sir Walter Scott,
        The Lay of the Last Minstrel
         (canto V, st. 13)

Better to have loved and lost, than not to have loved at all.
  [Lat., Magis gauderes quod habueras, quam moereres quod amiseras.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Epistles
         (99), (Free translation)

If you wish to be loved, love.
  [Lat., Si vis amari, ama.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (IX)

True love hates and will not bear delay.
  [Lat., Odit verus amor nec patitur moras.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        Hercules Furens (588)

He who has fostered the sweet poison of love by fondling it, finds it too late to refuse the yoke which he has of his own accord assumed.
  [Lat., Qui blandiendo dulce nutrivit malum,
    Sero recusat ferre, quod subiit, jugum.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Hippolytus
         (CXXXIV)

At love's perjuries they say Jove laughs.
      - William Shakespeare

How silver-sweet sound lovers' tongues by night,
  Like softest music to attending ears!
      - William Shakespeare

Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but love.
      - William Shakespeare

Love is full of unbefitting strains; all wanton as a child, skipping, and vain; formed by the eye, and therefore, like the eye, full of strange shapes, of habits, and of forms.
      - William Shakespeare

Love is merely a madness; and, I tell you, deserves as well a dark house and whip as madmen do; and the reason why they are not so punished and cured is that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love too.
      - William Shakespeare

Love is not love
  Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove;
      O no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
        That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
          It is the star to every wandering bark,
            Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
              Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
                Within his bending sickle's compass come;
                  Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
                    But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error, and upon me proved;--
                      I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
      - William Shakespeare

Love will not be spurred to what it loathes.
      - William Shakespeare

No sooner met but they looked, no sooner looked but they loved, no sooner loved but they sighed, no sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason no sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy.
      - William Shakespeare

Prosperity is the very bond of love.
      - William Shakespeare

Scorn, at first, makes after-love the more.
      - William Shakespeare

Sweet, good night!
  This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
    May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.
      - William Shakespeare

Though love use reason for its precision, he admits him not for his councillor.
      - William Shakespeare

Wish chastely, and love dearly.
      - William Shakespeare

Ay me! for aught that I could ever read,
  Could ever hear by tale or history,
    The course of true love never did run smooth;
      But either it was different in blood--
        . . . .
          Or else misgraffed in respect of years--
            . . . .
              Or else it stood upon the choice of friends--
                . . . .
                  Or, if there were a sympathy in choice,
                    War, death, or sickness did lay siege to it,
                      Making it momentany as a sound,
                        Swift as a shadow, short as any dream
                          Brief as the lightning in the collied night,
                            That, in a spleen, unfolds both heaven and earth,
                              And ere a man hath power to say 'Behold!'
                                The jaws of darkness do devour it up:
                                  So quick bright things come to confusion.
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Lysander at I, i)

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
  And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Helena at I, i)

Love, therefore, and tongue-tied simplicity
  In least speak most, to my capacity.
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Theseus at V, i)

But love that comes too late,
  Like a remorseful pardon slowly carried,
    To the great sender turns a sour offense,
      Crying, 'That's good that's gone.'
      - William Shakespeare,
        All's Well That Ends Well
         (King of France at V, iii)

There's beggary in the love that can be reckoned.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Antony at I, i)
