This Is What Some Of The Greatest Men Had To Say About LOVE

Updated on August 19, 2011

It is good to be merry and wise; it is good to be honest and true;

It is well to be off with the old love before you go on with the new.

-Anon



With all thy faults, I Love thee still.

-Couper



Love is the business of the idle, but idleness of the busy.

-Bulwer- Lytton



In her first passion a woman Loves her lover, in all the others, all she Loves is Love.

-Byron



Perhaps they were right in putting Love into books,…

Perhaps it could not live anywhere else.

-William Faulkner



He who for the first time Loves even vainly, is a God,

But the man who loves again, but still vainly, is a fool.

-Heine



There are many people who would never have been in Love if they had never heard Love spoken of.

-La RochefouCauld



Love is all in fire, and yet is ever freezing;

Love is much in winning, yet is more in losing;

Love is ever sick, and yet is never dying;

Love is ever true, and yet is ever lying;

Love does doat in liking, and is mad in loathing;

Love indeed is anything, yet indeed is nothing.

-Thomas Middleton



Two souls with a single thought, two hearts that beat as one.

-Von Munch-Bellingshausen



Though his suit was rejected, he sadly reflected,

That a lower forsaken a new love may get;

But a neck that’s once broken, can never be set.

-Scott



Doubt thou the stars are fire; doubt that the sun doth move;

Doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I Love.

-Shakespeare, Hamlet



When my Love swears that she is made of truth, I do believe her, though I know she lies.

-Shakespeare, Sonnets



Across the gateway of my heart, I wrote, “No thoroughfare”,

But Love came laughing by and cried, “I enter everywhere”.

-Herbert Shipman



If Love were what the rose is, and I were like the leaf;

Our lives would grow together, in sad or singing weather.

-Swinburne



I hold it true, whate’er befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most;

‘tis better to have Loved and lost than to never have Loved at all.

-Tennyson



To say that you can Love one person all your life is just like saying that one candle will continue burning as long as you live. -Tolstoy

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!

-Whittier



The night has a thousand eyes, and the day but one;

Yet the light of the bright world dies with the dying sun.

The mind has a thousand eyes, the heart but one;

Yet the light of the whole life dies, when Love is done.

-F.W. Bourdillon



Sigh no more ladies, sigh no more, men were deceivers ever;

One foot in sea and one on shore, to one thing constant never.

-Shakespeare



LOVE IS ALL CHATTER, FRIENDS ARE ALL THAT MATTER.
