Two sentiments alone suffice for man, were he to live the age of the rocks--love, and the contemplation of the Deity.
      - Isaac Watts

The hawk unto the open sky,
  The red deer to the wold;
    The Romany lass for the Romany lad,
      As in the days of old.
      - F.C. Weatherby,
        given in the "N.Y. Times Review" as his poem, but not found

And the King with his golden sceptre,
  The Pope with Saint Peter's key,
    Can never unlock the one little heart
      That is opened only to me.
        For I am the Lord of a Realm,
          And I am Pope of a See;
            Indeed I'm supreme in the kingdom
              That is sitting, just now, on my knee.
      - Charles Henry Webb, The King and the Pope

Love is what you make it and who you make it with.
      - Mae West

Saving love doesn't bring any interest.
      - Mae West

Love hath never known a law beyond its own sweet will.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

O, rank is good, and gold is fair,
  And high and low mate ill;
    But love has never known a law
      Beyond its own sweet will!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Amy Wentworth
         (st. 18)

"I'm sorry that I spell'd the word;
  I hate to go above you,
    Because"--the brown eyes lowered fell,--
      "Because, you see, I love you!"
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, In School-Days
         (st. 4)

Each time that one loves is the only time one has ever loved.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

The heart was made to be broken.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

When a man has once loved a woman he will do anything for her except continue to love her.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Women love men for their defects; if men have enough of them, women will forgive them anything, even their gigantic intellects.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

There is a land of the living and a land of the dead, and the bridge is love.
      - Thornton Niven Wilder

And whether we love, or close our hearts to love, is a mental choice we make, every moment of every day.
      - Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

Your love in a cottage is hungry,
  Your vine is a nest for flies--
    Your milkmaid shocks the Graces,
      And simplicity talks of pies!
        You lie down to your shady slumber
          And wake with a bug in your ear,
            Any your damsel that walks in the morning
              Is shod like a mountaineer.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis, Love in a Cottage
         (st. 3)

He loves not well whose love is bold!
  I would not have thee come too nigh.
    The sun's gold would not seem pure gold
      Unless the sun were in the sky:
        To take him thence and chain him near
          Would make his beauty disappear.
      - William Winter, Love's Queen

The unconquerable pang of despised love.
      - William Wordsworth, Excursion (bk. VI)

For mightier far
  Than strength of nerve or sinew, or the sway
    Of magic potent over sun and star,
      Is love, though oft to agony distrest,
        And though his favourite be feeble woman's breast.
      - William Wordsworth, Laodamia (st. 15)

O dearer far than light and life are dear.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Poems Founded on the Affections
         (no. XIX, To------, VII, 114),
        (Knight's edition)

While all the future, for thy purer soul,
  With "sober certainties" of love is blest.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Poems Founded on the Affections
         (VII, 115), (Knight's edition)

Farewell, Love, and all thy laws for ever.
      - Sir Thomas Wyatt (Wyat),
        Songs and Sonnets--A Renouncing of Love

Stand by your man.
      - Tammy Wynette

What lively lad most pleasured me
  Of all that with me lay?
      - William Butler Yeats, Collected Poems
         (p. 270)

Art thou not dearer to my eyes than light?
  Dost thou not circulate through all my veins?
    Mingle with life, and form my very soul?
      - Edward Young

Humble love, and not proud science, keens the door of heaven.
      - Edward Young
