Love sought is good, but given unsought is better."
Hear my soul speak:
The very instant that I saw you, did
My heart fly to your service."
I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest."
One half of me is yours, the other half yours,
Mine own, I would say; but if mine, then yours,
And so all yours."
Whoever loved that love not at first sight
If thou remember'st not the slightest folly
That ever love did make thee run into,
Thou hast not lov'd.
Forty thousand brothers
Could not, with all their quantity of love,
Make up my sum
But love is blind, and lovers cannot see
The pretty follies that themselves commit.
When you depart from me sorrow abides, and happiness takes his leave.
From love's weak childish bow she lives unharmed.
love as deep; the more I give to thee
The more I have, for both are infinite
Love goes toward love, as schoolboys from their books,
But love from love, toward school with heavy looks.
Then let thy love be younger than thyself,
Or thy affection cannot hold the bent.
Love comforteth like sunshine after rain
Love's gentle spring doth always fresh remain
