Love is the weapon which Omnipotence reserved to conquer rebel man when all the rest had failed. Reason he parries; fear he answers blow for blow; future interest he meets with present pleasure; but love, that sun against whose melting beams the winter cannot stand--that soft subliming slumber which wrestles down the giant, there is not one human being in a million, nor a thousand men in all earth's huge quintillion, whose clay heart is hardened against love.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper

Love with life is heaven; and life, unloving, hell.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper

She thinks the people she loves are better than they really are, and so then she starts changing things around to suit her view of them.
      - Anne Tyler

A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and a man cannot live without love.
      - George Putnam Upton (used pseudonym Peregrine Pickle}

Ask the child why it is born; ask the flower why it blossoms; ask the sun why it shines. I love you because I must love you.
      - George Putnam Upton (used pseudonym Peregrine Pickle}

It is youth that has discovered love as a weapon.
      - Peter Ustinov

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.
      - Peter Ustinov

In love as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
      - Marguerite de Valois

Love's like virtue, its own reward.
      - Sir John Vanbrugh (Vanburgh)

Love is something eternal--the aspect may change but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and it was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light, too, and that is its real function.
      - Vincent van Gogh

The warrior for the True, the Right,
  Fights in Love's name;
    The love that lures thee from that fight
      Lures thee to shame:
        That love which lifts the heart, yet leaves
          The spirit free,--
            That love, or none, is fit for one
              Man-shaped like thee.
      - Aubrey Thomas de Vere,
        Miscellaneous Poems--Song

He who determines to love only those who are faultless will soon find himself alone.
      - Vihischti

All true love is grounded on esteem.
      - George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham

For all true love is grounded on esteem.
      - George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham

We were two and had but one heart between us.
      - Francois Villon

Now I know what love is.
  [Lat., Nunc scio quit sit amor.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil)

Love conquers all things; let us yield to love.
  [Lat., Omnia vincit amor, et nos cedamus amori.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        Eclogoe (X, 69)

Who can deceive a lover?
  [Lat., Quis fallere possit anamtem?]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        The Aeneid (IV, 296)

He whom love guards, is well guarded.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

Whoe'er thou art, thy master see;
  He was--or is--or is to be.
    [Fr., Qui que tu sois, voici ton maitre;
      Il l'est--le fut--ou le doit etre.]
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire),
        Works (II, p. 765 (1837 ed.))

Riches take wings, comforts vanish, hope withers away, but love stays with us. Love is God.
      - Lewis (Lew) Wallace

The happiness of love is in action; its test is what one is willing to do for others.
      - Lewis (Lew) Wallace

To love is to believe, to hope, to know;
  'Tis an essay, a taste of Heaven below!
      - Edmund Waller, Divine Poems--Divine Love
         (canto III, l. 17)

Could we forbear dispute, and practise love,
  We should agree as angels do above.
      - Edmund Waller, Divine Poems--Divine Love
         (canto III, l. 25)

I love him not, but show no reason wherefore, but this, I do not love the man.
      - Rowland Watkyns (Watkins), Antipathy,
        a paraphrase of Martial
