To be wise and eke to love,
  Is granted scarce to gods above.

Love, which is only an episode in the life of man, is the entire history of woman's life.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

Love is the emblem of eternity: it confounds all notion of time: effaces all memory of a beginning , all fear of an end.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein),
        Corinne (bk. VIII, ch. II)

Where we really love, we often dread more than we desire the solemn moment that exchanges hope for certainty.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein),
        Corinne (bk. VIII, ch. IV)

Love is the history of a woman's life; it is an episode in man's.
  [Fr., L'amour est l'histoire de la vie des femmes; c'est un episode dans celle des hommes.]
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein),
        De l'influence des passions--Works
         (III, p. 135 (1820 ed.))

Sweetheart, when you walk away,
  Be it dark or be it day;
    Dreary winter, fairy May,
      I shall know and greet you.
        For each day of grief or grace
          Brings you nearer my embrace;
            Love hath fashioned your dear face,
              I shall know you when I meet you.
      - Frank Lebby Stanton, Greeting

To love her [Lady Elizabeth Hastings] was a liberal education.
      - Sir Richard Steele,
        Of Lady Elizabeth Hastings,
        in "The Tatler", no. 49

Only those who love with the heart can animate the love of others.
      - Abel Stevens

And my heart springs anew,
  Bright and confident and true,
    And the old love comes to meet me, in the dawning and the dew.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson, a poem

I who all the Winter through,
  Cherished other loves than you
    And kept hands with hoary policy in marriage-bed and pew;
      Now I know the false and true,
        For the earnest sun looks through,
          And my old love comes to meet me in the dawning and the dew.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson, a poem

To love is the great amulet that makes this world a garden.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson

Just like Love is yonder rose,
  Heavenly fragrance round it throws,
    Yet tears its dewy leaves disclose,
      And in the midst of briars it blows
        Just like Love.
      - Viscount P.C.S. Smythe Strangford,
        Just like Love,
        translation of "Poems" of Camoens

Why so pale and wan. fond lover,
  Prithee, why so pale?
    Will, when looking well can't move her,
      Looking ill prevail?
        Prithee, why so pale?
      - Sir John Suckling, Song (st. 1)

Love in its essence is spiritual fire.
      - Emanuel Swedenborg (Swedberg),
        True Christian Religion (par. 31)

The beings who appear cold, but are only timid, adore where they dare to love.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

In men desire begets love, and in women love begets desire.
      - Jonathan Swift

Love why do we one passion call,
  When 'tis a compound of them all?
    Where hot and cold, where sharp and sweet,
      In all their equipages meet;
        Where pleasures mix'd with pains appear,
          Sorrow with joy, and hope with fear.
      - Jonathan Swift

In all I wish, how happy should I be,
  Thou grand Deluder, were it not for thee?
    So weak thou art that fools thy power despise;
      And yet so strong, thou triumph'st o'er the wise.
      - Jonathan Swift, To Love

If love were what the rose is,
  And I were like the leaf,
    Our lives would grow together
      In sad or singing weather.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne, A Match

Love laid his sleepless head
  On a thorny rose bed:
    And his eyes with tears were red,
      And pale his lips as the dead.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        Love Laid his Sleepless Head

Love, as is told by the seers of old,
  Comes as a butterfly tipped with gold,
    Flutters and flies in sunlit skies,
      Weaving round hearts that were one time cold.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne, Song

O Love, O great god Love, what have I done,
  That thou shouldst hunger so after my death?
    My heart is harmless as my life's first day:
      Seek out some false fair woman, and plague her
        Till her tears even as my tears fill her bed.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        The Complaint of Lisa

I that have love and no more
  Give you but love of you, sweet;
    He that hath more, let him give;
      He that hath wings, let him soar;
        Mine is the heart at your feet
          Here, that must love you to live.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne, The Oblation

In love, anger is always false.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus)
