I do not love thee, Dr. Fell.

There is musick, even in the beauty and the silent note which Cupid strikes, far sweeter than the sound of the instrument.

I would not be a rose upon the wall
  A queen might stop at, near the palace-door,
    To say to a courtier, "Pluck that rose for me,
      It's prettier than the rest." O Romney Leigh!
        I'd rather far be trodden by his foot,
          Than lie in a great queen's bosom.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
         (bk. IV)

  And when a woman says she loves a man,

Behold me! I am worthy

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
  I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
    My soul can reach . . .
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning,
        Sonnets from the Portuguese

Who can fear
  Too many stars, though each in heaven shall roll--
    Too many flowers, though each shall crown the year?
      Say thou dost love me, love me, love me--toll
        The silver iterance!--only minding, Dear,
          To love me also in silence, with thy soul.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning,
        Sonnets from the Portuguese (sonnet XXI)

Unless you can feel when the song is done
  No other is sweet in its rhythm;
    Unless you can feel when left by one
      That all men else go with him.

God be thanked, the meanest of his creatures
  Boasts two soul-sides, one to face the world with,
    One to show a woman when he loves her.
      - Robert Browning, One Word More (st. XVII)

It's possible to love a human being if you don't know them too well.

A woman may live without a lover, but a lover once admitted, she never goes through life with only one. She is deserted, and cannot bear her anguish and solitude, and hence fills up the void with a second idol.
