Yet I have not seen
  So likely an ambassador of love.
    A day in April never came so sweet
      To show how costly summer was at hand,
        As this fore-spurrer comes before his lord.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Messenger at II, ix)

Beshrow me but I love her heartily!
  For she is wise, if I can judge of her,
    And fair she is, if that mine eyes be true,
      And true she is, as she hath proved herself;
        And therefore, like herself, wise, fair, true,
          Shall she be placed in my constant soul.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Lorenzo at II, vi)

But love is blind, and lovers cannot see
  The pretty follies that themselves commit;
    For if they could, Cupid himself would blush
      To see me thus transformed to a boy.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Jessica at II, vi)

Your fortune stood upon the caskets there,
  And so did mine too, as the matter falls;
    For wooing here until I sweat again,
      And swearing till my very roof was dry
        With oaths of love, at last--if promise last--
          I got a promise of this fair one here
            To have her love, provided that your fortune
              Achieved her mistress.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Gratiano at III, ii)

Love like a shadow flies when substance loves pursues;
  Pursuing that that flies, and flying what pursues.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merry Wives of Windsor
         (Ford at II, ii)

There is no creature loves me;
  And if I die, no soul will pity me.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii)

And writers say, as the most forward bud
  Is eaten by the canker ere it blow,
    Even so by love the young and tender wit
      Is turned to folly, blasting in the bud,
        Losing his verdure even in the prime.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Valentine at I, i)

Love is your master, for he masters you;
  And he that is so yoked by a fool
    Methinks should not be chronicled for wise.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Valentine at I, i)

That's a deep story of a deeper love,
  For he was more than over shoes in love.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Proteus at I, i)

Fie, fie, how wayward is this foolish love
  That, like a testy babe, will scratch the nurse
    And presently all humbled kiss the rod!
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Julia at I, ii)

They do not love that do not show their love.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Julia at I, ii),
        also see Heywood Proverbs, pt. II, ch. IX

O, how this spring of love resembleth
  The uncertain glory of an April day,
    Which now shows all the beauty of the sun,
      And by and by a cloud takes all away!
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Proteus at I, iii)

Didst thou but know the inly touch of love,
  Thou wouldst as soon go kindle fire with snow
    As seek to quench the fire of love with words.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Julia at II, vii)

I do not seek to quench your love's hot fire,
  But qualify the fire's extreme rage,
    Lest it should burn above the bounds of reason.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Lucetta at II, vii)

Except I be by Silvia in the night,
  There is no music in the nightingale;
    Unless I look on Silvia in the day,
      There is no day for me to look upon.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Valentine at III, i)

O spirit of love, how quick and fresh art thou,
  That, notwithstanding thy capacity,
    Receiveth as the sea. Nought enters there,
      Of what validity and pitch soe'er,
        But falls into abatement and low price
          Even in a minute.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Orsino, Duke of Illyria at I, i)

She never told her love,
  But let concealment, like a worm i' th' bud,
    Feed on her damask cheek. She pined in thought;
      And, with a green and yellow melancholy,
        She sat like Patience on a monument,
          Smiling at grief.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Viola at II, iv)

Then let thy love be younger than thyself,
  Or thy affection cannot hold the bent;
    For women are as roses, whose fair flow'r,
      Being once displayed, doth fall that very hour.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Orsino, Duke of Illyria at II, iv)

Do not extort thy reasons from this clause,
  For that I woo, thou therefore hast no cause;
    But rather reason thus with reason fetter,
      Love sought is good, but given unsought is better.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Olivia at III, i)

Love sought is good, but given unsought is better.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Olivia at III, i)

Love keeps his revels where there are but twain.
      - William Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis

Art thou a woman's son, and canst not feel
  What 'tis to love? How want of love tormenteth?
      - William Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis

Love is the gross exaggeration of the difference between one person and everyone else.

There is no sincerer love than the love of food.
