Famous quotes containing the word love:

    Then whisper by that holy spring,
    Where for her sake I would have died,
    Whilst those water-nymphs did bring
    Flowers to cure what she had tried;
    And of my faith and love did sing.
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)

The fact is we can only love what we know personally. And we cannot know much.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    Not yesterday I learned to know
    The love of bare November days
    Before the coming of the snow....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
