To live without loving is not really to live.
      - Moliere (pseudonym of Jean Baptiste Poquelin)

The flower called heliotrope turns without ceasing to that star of the day, so also my heart henceforth will turn itself always towards the resplendent stars of you adorable eyes, as towards its only pole.
  [Fr., La fleur nommee heliotrope tourne sans cesse vers cet astre du jour, aussi mon coeur dorenavant tournera-t-il toujours vers les astres resplendissants de vos yeux adorables, ainsi que son pole unique.]
      - Moliere (pseudonym of Jean Baptiste Poquelin),

Love is often a fruit of marriage.
  [Fr., L'amour est souvent un fruit de mariage.]
      - Moliere (pseudonym of Jean Baptiste Poquelin),
        Sganarelle (I, 1)

If a man should importune me to give a reason why I loved him, I find it could no otherwise be expressed than by making answer, Because it was he; because it was I. There is beyond all that I am able to say, I know not what inexplicable and fated power that brought on this union.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, Essays
         (bk. I, ch. XXVII)

He loves little who loves by rule.
  [Fr., Celuy ayme peu qui ayme a la mesure.]

There is nothing half so sweet in life as love's young dream.
      - Thomas Moore

Whoever loveth me, loveth my hound.
      - Thomas Moore

Yes, loving is a painful thrill,
  And not to love more painful still;
    But oh, it is the worst of pain,
      To love and not be lov'd again.
      - Thomas Moore, Anacreontic (ode 29)

No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
  But as truly loves on to the close,
    As the sunflower turns on her god, when he sets,
      The same look which she turn'd when he rose.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms
         (st. 2)

I know not, I ask not, if guilt's in that heart,
  I know that I love thee, whatever thou art.
      - Thomas Moore, Come, Rest in This Bosom
         (st. 2)

Love on through all ills, and love on till they die!
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--The Light of the Harem
         (l. 653)

But there's nothing half so sweet in life
  As love's young dream.
      - Thomas Moore, Love's Young Dream (st. 1)

A boat at midnight sent alone
  To drift upon the moonless sea.
    A lute, whose leading chord is gone,
      A wounded bird, that hath but one
        Imperfect wing to soar upon,
          Are like what I am, without thee.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Loves of the Angels--Second Angel's Story

"Tell me, what's Love;" said Youth, one day,
  To drooping Age, who crost his way.--
    "It is a sunny hour of play;
      For which repentance dear doth pay;
        Repentance! Repentance!
          And this is Love, as wise men say."
      - Thomas Moore, Youth and Age

Love never reasons, but profusely gives; gives, like a thoughtless prodigal, its all, and trembles then lest it has done too little.
      - Hannah More

If we all discovered that we only had five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say, every telephone booth would be occupied by people calling other people to tell them that they loved them.
      - Christopher Darlington Morley

I've wandered east, I've wandered west,
  I've borne a weary lot;
    But in my wanderings far or near
      Ye never were forgot.
        The fount that first burst frae this heart
          Still travels on its way
            And channels deeper at it rins
              The luve o' life's young day.
      - William Motherwell, Jeanie Morrison

Love means never having to say you're sorry.
      - Movie Quote, Love Story

Duty's a slave that keeps the keys,
  But Love, the Master goes in and out
    Of his goodly chambers with song and shout,
      Just as he please--just as he please.
      - Dinah Maria Mulock (used pseudonym Mrs. Craik),

Life is a sleep, love is a dream; and you have lived if you have loved.
      - Louis Charles Alfred de Musset

Love is the occupation of the idle man, the amusement of a busy one, and the shipwreck of a sovereign.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

The only victory aver love is flight.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

A broken heart is a monument to a love that will never die; fulfillment is a monument to a love that is already on its deathbed.
      - George Jean Nathan

A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.
      - George Jean Nathan

Love demands infinitely less than friendship.
      - George Jean Nathan
