CUPID

Love can take what shape he pleases; and when once begun his fiery inroad in the soul, how vain the after knowledge which his presence gives! We weep or rave; but still he lives, and lives master and lord, amidst pride and tears and pain.
      - Barry Cornwall (pseudonym of Bryan Waller Procter)

Love is a child that talks in broken language, yet then he speaks most plain.
      - John Dryden

According to the Asiatics, Cupid's bow is strung with bees which are apt to sting, sometimes fatally, those who meddle with it.
      - Maria Edgeworth

In the true mythology, Love is an immortal child, and Beauty leads him as a guide; nor can we express a deeper sense than when we say, Beauty is the pilot of the young soul.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

We say love is blind, and the figure of Cupid is drawn with a bandage around his eyes. Blind--yes, because he does not see what he does not like; but the sharpest-sighted hunter in the universe is Love for finding what he seeks, and only that.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love is ever busy with his shuttle, is ever weaving into life's dull warp bright, gorgeous flowers, and, scenes Arcadian.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Thou art figured blind, and yet we borrow our best sight from thee.
      - Philip Massinger

That blind, rascally boy that abuses every one's eyes, because his own are out.
      - William Shakespeare

The wounds invisible that Love's keen arrows make.
      - William Shakespeare

This senior junior, giant-dwarf, Dan Cupid:
  Regent of love rhymes, lord of folded arms.
    The anointed sovereign of sighs and groans,
      Liege of all loiterers and malcontents.
      - William Shakespeare

Before the birth of Love, many fearful things took place through the empire of necessity; but when this god was born, all things rose to men.
      - Socrates

There is an English song beginning, "Love knocks at the door." He knocks less often than he finds it open.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)
