nothing else can bring. Oscar Wilde

Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four? John Lennon & Paul McCartney
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant.

think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering
it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it. John Lennon
The heart has its reasons that reason knows nothing of. Blaise Pascal
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and

day of loving. Kahlil Gibran

The eskimos had fifty-two names for snow because it was important
to them: there ought to be as many for love. Margaret Atwood
Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of
birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. Bible - Song of Solomon

Two hearts that beat as one. Friedrich Halm

happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds,
that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the
quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said. Victor Hugo
We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when
we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we

Give me a kisse, and to that kisse a score;
Then to that twenty, adde a hundred more;
A thousand to that hundred; so kisse on,
To make that thousand up a million;
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let's kisse afresh, as when we first begun. Robert Herrick
Are we not like two volumes of one book. Marceline Desbordes-Valmore
Ah me! love can not be cured by herbs. Ovid
Believe me if all those endearing young charms,
Which I gaze on so fondly today,
Were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms,
Like fairy gifts fading away!
Thou wouldst still be adored, as this moment thou art,
Let thy loveliness fade as it will
And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart
Would entwine itself verdantly still.
It is not while beauty and youth are thine own,
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear,
That the fervor and faith of a soul may be known,
To which time will but make thee more dear!
Oh the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close,
As the sunflower turns to her god when he sets
The same look which she turned when he rose! Thomas Moore
