The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can ever end.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

We are all born for love. . . . It is the principle of existence and its only end.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield,
        Sybil (bk. V, ch. IV)

He who, being bold
  For life to come, is false to the past sweet
    Of mortal life, hath kiled the world above.
      For why to live again if not to meet?
        And why to meet if not to meet in love?
          And why in love if not in that dear love of old?
      - Sydney Thompson Dobell,
        Sonnet--To a Friend in Bereavement

And now good morrow to our waking souls, which watch not one another out of fear; for love, all love of other sights controls, and makes one little room, an everywhere.

Love reckons hours for months, and days for years; and every little absence is an age.
      - John Dryden

Give, you gods,
  Give to your boy, your Caesar,
    The rattle of a globe to play withal,
      This gewgaw world, and put him cheaply off;
        I'll not be pleased with less than Cleopatra.
      - John Dryden, All for Love (act II, sc. 1)

Love taught him shame; and shame, with love at strife,
  Soon taught the sweet civilities of life.
      - John Dryden, Cymon and Iphigenia (l. 133)

How happy the lover,
  How easy his chain,
    How pleasing his pain,
      How sweet to discover
        He sighs not in vain.
      - John Dryden, King Arthur (IV, 1, song)

Fool, not to know that love endures no tie,
  And Jove but laughs at lovers' perjury.
      - John Dryden, Palamon and Arcite

Pains of love be sweeter far
  Than all other pleasures are.
      - John Dryden, Tyrannic Love (act IV, sc. 1)

Two souls in one, two hearts into one heart.

The love we have in our youth is superficial compared to the love that an old man has for his old wife.
      - William James (Will) Durant

There are women who love their husbands as blindly, as enthusiastically, and as enigmatically as nuns their cloister.
      - Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Love is of all stimulants the most powerful. It sharpens the wits like danger, and the memory like hatred; it spurs the will like ambition; it intoxicates like wine.
