For love deceives the best of woman kind.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. XV, l. 463), (Pope's translation)

Who love too much, hate in the like extreme.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. XV, l. 79), (Pope's translation)

Love is represented as the fulfilling of the law,--a creature's perfection. All other graces, all divine dispensations, contribute to this, and are lost in it as in a heaven. It expels the dross of our nature; it overcomes sorrow; it is the full joy of our Lord.
      - Richard Hooker

Of the systems above us, angelic and seraphic, we know little; but we see one law, simple, efficient, and comprehensive as that of gravitation,--the law of love,--extending its sway over the whole of God's dominions, living where He lives, embracing every moral movement in its universal authority, and producing the same harmony, where it is obeyed as we observe in the movements of nature.
      - Mark Hopkins

If nothing is delightful without love and jokes, then live in love and jokes.
  [Lat., Si sine amore, jocisque
    Nil est jucundum, vivas in amore jocisque.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus),
        Epistles (I, 6, 65)

The first symptom of true love in a young man is timidity, in a girl it is boldness. The two sexes have a tendency to approach, and each assumes the qualities of the other.
      - Victor Hugo

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves--say rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
      - Victor Hugo

What's our baggage? Only vows,
  Happiness, and all our care,
    And the flower that sweetly shows
      Nestling lightly in your hair.
      - Victor Hugo, Eviradnus (XI)

If you become a Nun, dear,
  The bishop Love will be;
    The Cupids every one, dear!
      Will chant--'We trust in thee!'
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt),
        The Nun

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
      - Zora Neale Hurston

From henceforth thou shalt learn that there is love
  To long for, pureness to desire, a mount
    Of consecration it were good to scale.
      - Jean Ingelow,
        A Parson's Letter to a Young Poet
         (pt. II, l. 55)

That divine swoon.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll, Orthodoxy--Works
         (vol. II, p. 420)

A woman is more considerate in affairs of love than a man; because love is more the study and business of her life.
      - Washington Irving

But great loves, to the last, have pulses red;
  All great loves that have ever died dropped dead.
      - Helen Hunt Jackson (Helen Hunt),
        Dropped Dead

Love has a tide!
      - Helen Hunt Jackson (Helen Hunt), Tides

When love is at its best, one loves
  So much that he cannot forget.
      - Helen Hunt Jackson (Helen Hunt),
        Two Truths

Love can sometimes be magic. But magic can sometimes . . . just be an illusion.
      - Javan (pseudonym of Steven Javan Jones)

It is the beautiful necessity of our nature to love something.
      - Douglas William Jerrold

Love's like the measles--all the worse when it comes late in life.
      - Douglas William Jerrold

Love's like the flies, and, drawing-room or garret, goes all over a house.
      - Douglas William Jerrold,
        Jerrold's Wit--Love

Love is the purification of the heart from self; it strengthens and ennobles the character, gives higher motives and a nobler aim to every action of life, and makes both man and woman strong, noble, and courageous.
      - Maria Jane Jewsbury

. . . for me there lies,
  Within the lights and shadows of your eyes,
    The only beauty that is never old.
      - James Weldon Johnson,
        Beauty That Is Never Old

Love is the wisdom of the fool and the folly of the wise.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

There are few things that we so unwillingly give up, even in advanced age, as the supposition that we have still the power of ingratiating ourselves with the fair sex.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

If I freely may discover
  What should please me in my lover,
    I would have her fair and witty,
      Savouring more of court than city;
        A little proud, but full of pity;
          Light and humorous in her toying,
            Oft building hopes, and soon destroying,
              Long, but sweet in the enjoying;
                Neither too easy nor to hard;
                  All extremes I would have barr'd.
      - Ben Jonson
