Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
      - Kahlil Gibran, The Vision

Not from the whole wide world I chose thee,
  Sweetheart, light of the land and the sea!
    The wide, wide world could not inclose thee,
      For thou art the whole wide world to me.
      - Richard Watson Gilder, Song

I love her doubting and anguish;
  I love the love she withholds,
    I love my love that loveth her,
      And anew her being moulds.
      - Richard Watson Gilder, The New Day
         (pt. III, song I)

Love, Love, my Love.
  The best things are the truest!
    When the earth lies shadowy dark below
      Oh, then the heavens are bluest!

         (pt. IV, song I)

We love because it's the only true adventure.
      - Nikki Giovanni

I love you
  because the Earth turns round the sun

              and the air clears after a storm
      - Nikki Giovanni, Resignation

Love with men is not a sentiment, but an idea.
      - Madame Delphine Gay de Girardin

      - Madame Delphine Gay de Girardin

Confronted by outstanding merit, there is no way of saving one's ego except by love.

Of the book of books most wondrous is the tender book of love.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Love grants in a moment
  What toil can hardly achieve in an age.

      Was Muhe kaum in langer Zeit erreicht.]

         (II, 3, 76)

If I love you, what business is that of yours?

To love is everything; love is God.
      - Leon Gozlan

I love a lassie, a bonnie, bonnie lassie,

      The bonnie, bloomin' heather,
        Mary, ma Scotch Blue-bell.

        I Love a Lassie

Whoe'er thou art, thy lord and master see,
  Thou wast my Slave, thou art, or thou shalt be.

        see "Genuine Works", (1732), I, 129
