Love is the life of the soul. It is the harmony of the universe.
      - William Ellery Channing

I tell thee Love is Nature's second sun,
  Causing a spring of virtues where he shines.
      - George Chapman, All Fools
         (act I, sc. 1, l. 98)

None ever loved, but at first sight they loved.
      - George Chapman,
        The Blind Beggar of Alexandria

Driven by the forces of love, the fragments of the world seek each other so that the world may come to being.
      - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves.
      - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Your eyen two will slay me suddenly,
  I may the beauty of them not sustain,
    So woundeth it throughout my herte kene.
      - Geoffrey Chaucer, Merciles Beaute

The deep joy we take in the company of people with whom we have just recently fallen in love is undisguisable.
      - John Cheever

If grass can grow through cement, love can find you at every time in your life.
      - Cher, in the London "Times"

The cure for all the ills and wrongs, the cares, the sorrows, and the crimes of humanity, all lie in that one word "love." It is the divine vitality that everywhere produces and restores life. To each and every one of us, it gives the power of working miracles if we will.
      - Mrs. Lydia Maria Child

But surely for everything you love you have to pay some price.
      - Agatha Christie

Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old.
      - John Ciardi

So mourn'd the dame of Ephesus her Love,
  And thus the Soldier arm'd with Resolution
    Told his soft Tale, and was a thriving Wooer.
      - Colley Cibber, Richard III (act II, sc. 1),
        (altered from Shakespeare)

What have I done? What horrid crime committed?
  To me the worst of crimes--outlived my liking.
      - Colley Cibber, Richard III
         (act III, sc. 2),
        altered from Shakespeare

Banish that fear; my flame can never waste,
  For love sincere refines upon the taste.
      - Colley Cibber, The Double Gallant
         (act V, sc. 1)

The leaves live but to love, and in all the lofty grove the happy trees love each his neighbor.
  [Lat., Vivunt in venerum frondes omnisque vicissim
    Felix arbor amat; mutant ad mutua palmae
      - Claudian (Claudianus),
        De Nuptiis Honorii et Marioe (LXV)

Here very frowns are fairer far
  Than smiles of other maidens are.
      - Hartley Coleridge, Song--She is not Fair

I have heard of reasons manifold
  Why love must needs be blind,
    But this is the best of all I hold--
      His eyes are in his mind.
      - Hartley Coleridge, To a Lady (st. 2)

Love is the admiration and cherishing of the amiable qualities of the beloved person, upon the condition of yourself being the object of their action.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Stimulate the heart to love and the mind to be early accurate, and all other virtues will rise of their own accord, and all vices will be thrown out.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Alas! they had been friends in youth;
  But whispering tongues can poison truth,
    And constancy lives in realms above;
      And life is thorny, and youth is vain;
        And to be wrothe with one we love
          Doth work like madness in the brain.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Christabel
         (pt. II)

All thoughts, all passions, all delights,
  Whatever stirs this mortal frame,
    All are but ministers of Love,
      And feed his sacred flame.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Love (st. 1)

True love is humble, thereby is it known;
  Girded for service, seeking not its own;
    Vaunts not itself, but speaks in self-dispraise.
      - Abraham Coles

Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship--never.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Love is an alchemist that can transmute poison into food--and a spaniel, that prefers even punishment from one hand to caresses from another. But it is in love as in war, we are often more indebted for our success to the weakness of the defence than to the energy of the attack; for mere idleness has ruined more women than passion; vanity more than idleness, and credulity more than either.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

The plainest man that can convince a woman that he is really in love with her has done more to make her in love with him than the handsomest man, if he can produce no such conviction. For the love of woman is a shoot, not a seed, and flourishes most vigorously only when ingrafted on that love which is rooted in the breast of another.
      - Charles Caleb Colton
