I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant has thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.
      - Bible, II Samuel (ch. I, v. 26)

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
      - Bible, John (ch. XV, v. 13)

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind,
  This is the first and great commandment.
    And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. XXIII, v. 37-39)

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
      - Bible, Romans (ch. XIII, v. 10)

And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
  Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.
      - Bible, Ruth (ch. I, v. 16-17)

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thy arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
      - Bible, Song of Solomon (ch. VIII, v. 6)

Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.
      - Bible, Song of Solomon (ch. VIII, v. 7)

LOVE, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease, like caries and many other ailments, is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient.
      - Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary

If a thing loves, it is infinite.
      - William Blake

To Chloe's breast young Cupid slily stole,
  But he crept in at Myra's pocket-hole.
      - William Blake, Couplets and Fragments (IV)

Love is the immortal flow of energy that nourishes, extends and preserves. Its eternal goal is life.
      - Smiley Blanton, M.D.

No one who has ever brought up a child can doubt for a moment that love is literally the life-giving fluid of human existence.
      - Smiley Blanton, M.D.

Love in a shower safe shelter took,
  In a rosy bower beside a brook,
    And winked and nodded with conscious pride
      To his votaries drenched on the other side.
        Come hither, sweet maids, there's a bridge below,
          The toll-keeper, Hymen, will let you through.
            Come over the stream to me.
      - Robert Bloomfield, Glee (st. 1)

Love delights in paradoxes. Saddest when it has most reason to be gay, sighs are the signs of its deepest joy, and silence is the expression of its yearning tenderness.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Love's sweetest meanings are unspoken; the full heart knows no rhetoric of words.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Our first and last love is--self-love.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Successful love takes a load off our hearts, and puts it upon our shoulders.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

First love, with its frantic haughty imagination, swings its object clear of the everyday, over the rut of living, making him all looks, silences, gestures, attitudes, a burning phrase with no context.
      - Elizabeth Bowen

The wish to lead out one's lover must be a tribal feeling; the wish to be seen as loved is part of one's self-respect.
      - Elizabeth Bowen

It is not love that steals the heart from love; it is the hard world and its perplexing cares, its petrifying selfishness, its pride, its low ambition, and its paltry aims.
      - Charlotte Bowles

Love is like fire. . . . Wounds of fire are hard to bear; harder still are those of love.
      - Hjalmar Hjorth Boyesen, Gunnar (ch. IV)

Why is it so difficult to love wisely, so easy to love too well?
      - Mary Elizabeth Braddon

The first sigh of love is the last of wisdom.
  [Fr., Le premier soupir de l'amour
    Est le dernier de la sagesse.]
      - Antoine Bret, Ecole amoureuse (sc. 7)

Much ado there was, God wot;
  He woold love, and she woold not,
    She sayd, "Never man was trewe;"
      He sayes, "None was false to you."
      - Nicholas Breton, Phillida and Corydon

In your arms was still delight,
  Quiet as a street at night;
    And thoughts of you, I do remember,
      Were green leaves in a darkened chamber,
        Were dark clouds in a moonless sky.
      - Rupert Brooke, Retrospect
