Love that is ignorant and hatred have almost the same ends.
      - Ben Jonson

Drink to me only with thine eyes,
  And I will pledge with mine;
    Or leave a kiss but in the cup,
      And I'll not look for wine.
      - Ben Jonson, The Forest--Song to Celia

The punishment of those who have loved women too much is to love them always.
      - Joseph Joubert

Who, of men, can tell
  That flowers would bloom, or that green fruit would swell
    To melting pulp, that fish would have bright mail,
      The earth its dower of river, wood, and vale,
        The meadows runnels, runnels pebble-stones,
          The seed of its harvest, or the lute its tones,
            Tomes ravishment, or ravishment its sweet,
              If human souls did never kiss and greet?
      - John Keats (1), Endymion (bk. I, l. 835)

Love in a hut, with water and a crust,
  Is--Love, forgive us!--cinders, ashes, dust.
      - John Keats (1), Lamia (pt. II)

I wish you could invent some means to make me at all happy without you. Every hour I am more and more concentrated in you; everything else tastes like chaff in my mouth.
      - John Keats (1), Letters (no. XXXVII)

When late I attempted your pity to move,
  Why seemed you so deaf to my prayers?
    Perhaps it was right to dissemb'e your love
      But--why did you kick me downstairs?
      - John P. Kemble, The Panel (act I, sc. 1),
        quoted from "Asylum for Fugitive Pieces"

Love the moment and the energy of the moment will spread beyond all boundaries.
      - Corita Kent

What's this dull town to me?
  Robin's not near--
    He whom I wished to see,
      Wished for to hear;
        Where's all the joy and mirth
          Made life a heaven on earth?
            O! they're all fled with thee,
              Robin Adair.
      - Lady Caroline Keppel, Robin Adair

A book of Verses underneath the Bough,
  A Jug of Wine, A Loaf of Bread, and Thou
    Beside me singing in the Wilderness--
      On, Wilderness were Paradise enow!
      - Omar Khayyam ("The Tent-Maker"),
        The Rubaiyat (st. 12),
        (FitzGerald's translation)

To cheat oneself out of love is the most terrible deception; it is an eternal loss for which there is no reparation, either in time or in eternity.
      - Soren A. Kierkegaard

Love can make us fiends as well as angels.
      - Charles Kingsley

The heart of a man to the heart of a maid--
  Light of my tents, be fleet--
    Morning awaits at the end of the world,
      And the world is all at our feet.
      - Rudyard Kipling, Gypsy Trail

The white moth to the closing vine,
  The bee to the open clover,
    And the Gypsy blood to the Gypsy blood
      Ever the wide world over.
      - Rudyard Kipling, Gypsy Trail

The wild hawk to the wind-swept sky,
  The deer to the wholesome wold;
    And the heart of a man to the heart of a maid,
      As it was in the days of old.
      - Rudyard Kipling, Gypsy Trail

Sing, for faith and hope are high--
  None so true as you and I--
    Sing the Lover's Litany:
      "Love like ours can never die!"
      - Rudyard Kipling, Lovers Litany

By the old Moulmein Pagoda, lookin' eastward to the sea,
  There's a Burma girl a-settin', and I know she thinks o' me;
    For the wind is in the palm-trees, and the temple-bells they say:
      "Come you back, you British soldier; come you back to Mandalay!"
      - Rudyard Kipling, Mandalay

If Love were jester at the court of Death,
  And Death the king of all, still would I pray,
    "For me the motley and the bauble, yea,
      Though all be vanity, as the Preacher saith,
        The mirth of love be mine for one brief breath!"
      - Frederic Lawrence Knowles,
        If Love were Jester at the Court of Death

A heart once poisoned by suspicion has no longer room for love.
      - August Friedrich Ferdinand von Kotzebue

Using another as a means of satisfaction and security is not love. Love is never security; love is a state in which there is no desire to be secure; it is a state of vulnerability.
      - Jiddu Krishnamurti

A woman with eyes only for one person, or with eyes always averted from him, creates exactly the same impression.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

Love seizes on us suddenly, without giving warning, and our disposition or our weakness favors the surprise; one look, one glance from the fair, fixes and determines us. Friendship, on the contrary, is a long time forming; it is of slow growth, through many trials and months of familiarity.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

We never love heartily but once, and that is the first time we love.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

The beginning and the end of love are both marked by embarrassment when the two find themselves alone.
  [Fr., Le commencement et le declin de l'amour se font sentir par l'embarras ou l'on est de se trouver seuls.]
      - Jean de la Bruyere, Les Caracteres (IV)

Love begins with love.
      - Jean de la Bruyere,
        The Characters or Manners of the Present Age
         (ch. IV)
