I do not love you, Zabidi, I cannot tell you why, but this I know, I do not love you, Zabidi.
  [Lat., Non amo te Zabidi, nec possum dicere quare,
    Noc solum scio, non amo te, Zabidi.]
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis)

I do not love thee, Sabidius, nor can I say why; I can only say this, "I do not love thee."
  [Lat., Non amo te, Sabidi, nec possum dicere quare;
    Hoc tantum posse dicere: non amo te.]
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis),
        Epigrams (I, 33, 1)

Love is a flame which burns in heaven and whose soft reflections radiate to us. Two worlds are opened, two lives given to it. It is by love that we double our being; it is by love that we approach God.
      - Aime Martin

Must love be ever treated with profaneness as a mere illusion? or with coarseness as a mere impulse? or with fear as a mere disease? or with shame as a mere weakness? or with levity as a mere accident? whereas it is a great mystery and a great necessity, lying at the foundation of human existence, morality, and happiness,--mysterious, universal, inevitable as death.
      - Harriet Martineau

Had we but world enough, and time,
  This coyness, lady, were no crime . . .
    But at my back I always hear
      Time's winged chariot hurrying near . . .
      - Andrew Marvell, the Younger,
        To His Coy Mistress

Love is a flame to burn out human wills,
  Love is a flame to set the will on fire,
    Love is a flame to cheat men into mire.
      - John Masefield, Widow in the Bye Street
         (pt. II)

Great men,
  Till they have gained their ends, are giants in
    Their promises, but, those obtained, weak pigmies
      In their performance. And it is a maxim
        Allowed among them, so they may deceive,
          They may swear anything; for the queen of love,
            As they hold constantly, does never punish,
              But smile, at lovers' perjuries.
      - Philip Massinger, Great Duke of Florence
         (act II, sc. 3)

'Tis well to be merry and wise,
  'Tis well to be honest and true;
    It is best to be off with the old love,
      Before you are on with the new.
      - Charles Robert Maturin,
        as used by him for the motto to "Bertram", produced at Drury Lane, 1816

No love, no friendship can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever.
      - Francois Mauriac

Where there exists the most ardent and true love, it is often better to be united in death than separated in life.
      - Valerius Maximus

The religion of humanity is love.
      - Giuseppe Mazzini

In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
      - Paul McCartney

Loving is the only sure road out of darkness, the only serum known that cures self-centeredness.
      - Rod McKuen

Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

I never heard
  Of any true affection but 'twas nipped.
      - Thomas Middleton, Blurt, Master Constable
         (act III, sc. 2)

Love is all in fire, and yet is ever freezing;
  Love is much in winning, yet is more in leesing:
    Love is ever sick, and yet is never dying;
      Love is ever true, and yet is ever lying;
        Love does doat in liking, and is mad in loathing;
          Love indeed is anything, yet indeed is nothing.
      - Thomas Middleton, Blurt, Master Constable
         (act III, sc. 2)

I think I should have loved you presently,
  And given you in earnest words I flung in jest.
      - Edna St. Vincent Millay (Mrs. Eugen Boissevain),
        I think I Should Have Loved You Presently

He who for love hath undergone
  The worst that can befall,
    Is happier thousandfold than one
      Who never loved at all.
      - Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton,
        To Myrzha--On Returning

Mutual love, the crown of all our bliss.
      - John Milton

Such sober certainly of waking bliss.
      - John Milton, Comus (263)

Imparadis'd in one another's arms.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. IV, l. 50)

With thee conversing I forget all time:
  All seasons and their change, all please alike.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. IV, l. 639), Eve speaking to Adam

So dear I love him, that with him all deaths
  I could endure, without him live no life.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. IX, l. 832)

It is not virtue, wisdom, valour, wit,
  Strength, comeliness of shape, or amplest merit,
    That woman's love can win, or long inherit;
      But what it is, hard is to say,
        Harder to hit.
      - John Milton, Samson Agonistes (l. 1,010)

A kiss can be a comma, a question mark or an exclamation point. That's basic spelling that every woman ought to know.
      - Mistinguette, in "Theatre Arts"
