It's love, it's love that makes the world go round.
      - Unattributed Author,

Greensleeves was all my joy,
  Greensleeves was my delight,
    Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
      And who but Lady Greensleeves?
      - Unattributed Author,

Oh, tell me whence Love cometh!
  Love comes uncall'd, unsent.
    Oh, tell me where Love goeth!
      That was not Love that went.
      - Unattributed Author, Burden of a Woman,
        found in J.W. Ebsworth's "Roxburghe Ballads"

I seek for one as fair and gay,
  But find none to remind me,
    How blest the hours pass'd away
      With the girl I left behind me.
      - Unattributed Author,
        The Girl I Left Behind Me

Intimates are predestined.
      - Henry Brooks Adams

It is certain that there is no other passion which does produce such contrary effects in so great a degree. But this may be said for love, that if you strike it out of the soul, life would be insipid, and our being but half animated.
      - Joseph Addison

The consciousness of being loved softens the keenest pang even at the moment of parting; yea, even the eternal farewell is robbed of half of its bitterness when uttered in accents that breathe love to the last sigh.
      - Joseph Addison

When love's well-timed 'tis not a fault of love;
  The strong, the brave, the virtuous, and the wise,
    Sink in the soft captivity together.
      - Joseph Addison, Cato (act III, sc. 1)

When love once pleads admission to our hearts,
  (In spite of all the virtue we can boast),
    The woman that deliberates is lost.
      - Joseph Addison, Cato (act IV, sc. 1)

Mysterious love, uncertain treasure,
  Hast thou more of pain or pleasure!
    . . . .
      Endless torments dwell above thee:
        Yet who would live, and live without thee!
      - Joseph Addison, Rosamond (act III, sc. 2)

Love is a great beautifier.
      - Louisa May Alcott

Love is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go, and it makes the end so easy.
      - Louisa May Alcott

For 'tis impossible
  Hate to return with love.
    [It., Che amar chi t'odia, ell'e impossibil cosa.]
      - Vittorio Alfieri, Polinice (II, 4)

Words of love are works of love.
      - William R. Alger

Sex without love is an empty experience, but, as empty experiences go, it's one of the best.
      - Woody Allen

The more a man loves, the more he suffers. The sum of possible grief for each soul is in proportion to its degree of perfection.
      - Henri-Frederic Amiel

I am a lover and have not found my thing to love.
      - Sherwood Anderson

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, it's what you are expected to give--which is everything.
      - Anonymous

O Western wind, when wilt thou blow
  That the small rain down can rain?
    Christ, that my love were in my arms
      And I in my bed again!
      - Anonymous

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
      - Jean Anouilh

For loving draws us more to things than knowing does, since good is found by going to the thing, whereas the true is found when the thing comes to us.
      - Saint Thomas Aquinas

Love involves a peculiar unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding.
      - Diane Arbus

Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
  For one lone soul another lonely soul,
    Each choosing each through all the weary hours,
      And meeting strangely at one sudden goal,
        Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers,
          Into one beautiful and perfect whole;
            And life's long night is ended, and the way
              Lies open onward to eternal day.
      - Sir Edwin Arnold, Somewhere There Waiteth

Ah, love, let us be true
  To one another!
      - Matthew Arnold

Ah, love, let us be true
  To one another! for the world, which seems
    To lie before us like a land of dreams,
      So various, so beautiful, so new,
        Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
          Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain.
      - Matthew Arnold, Dover Beach
