There is a lady sweet and kind,
  Was never face so pleased my mind;
    I did but see her passing by,
      And yet I love her till I die.

        in the "Scottish Student's Song-Book"

When words we want, love teacheth to indite;
  And what we blush to speak, she bids us write.
      - Robert Herrick

Give me a kisse, and to that kisse a score;
  Then to that twenty, adde a hundred more;
    A thousand to that hundred; so kiss on,
      To make that thousand up a million;
        Treble that million, and when that is done,
          Let's kisse afresh, as when we first begun.
      - Robert Herrick, Hesperides--To Anthea

No, not Jove
  Himselfe, at one time, can be wise and love.

You say to me-wards your affection's strong;
  Pray love me little, so you love me long.
      - Robert Herrick,

Bid me to live, and I will live
  The Protestant to be:
    Or bid me love, and I will give
      A loving heart to thee,
        A heart as soft, a heart as kind,
          A heart as sound and free
            As in the whole world thou canst find,
              That heart I'll give to thee.
      - Robert Herrick,
        To Anthea, who may command him anything

Divine love is a sacred flower, which in its early bud is happiness, and in its full bloom is heaven.
      - James Hervey

Let never man be bold enough to say,
  Thus, and no farther shall my passion stray:
    The first crime, past, compels us into more,
      And guilt grows fate, that was but choice, before.
      - Aaron Hill, Athelwold
         (act V, sc. The Garden)

We never can willingly offend where we sincerely love.

Carry me in your heart. I talk to you from there.
      - Gordy Hoffman, Love Liza,

O, love, love, love!
  Love is like a dizziness;
    It winna let a poor body
      Gang about his biziness!

The most precious possession that ever comes to a man in this world is a woman's heart.

If a man really loves a woman, of course he wouldn't marry her for the world, if he were not quite sure that he was the best person she could by any possibility marry.

Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness, of hatred, of jealousy, and, most easily of all, the gate of fear.

Cupid "the little greatest enemy."
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.,

Soft is the breath of a maiden's Yes:
  Not the light gossamer stirs with less;
    But never a cable that holds so fast
      Through all the battles of wave and blast.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.,
        Songs of Many Seasons--Dorothy
         (II, st. 7)

Nothing more excites to everything noble and generous, than virtuous love.
