ANNE MORROW LINDBFRG
Locked Rooms and Open Doors, 1974
A smile that glowed
Celestial rosy red
Love's proper hue.

Because we freely love, as in our will
To love or not; in this we stand or fall.
Paradise Lost, 1667
Love is enough: though the world be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining.

As 'tis, for object, strange and high;
It was begotten by despair, Upon impossibility.

Is it prickly to touch as a hedge is,
Or soft as eiderdown fluff?
Is it sharp or quite smooth at the edges?
O tell me the truth about love.
W H. AUDEN
"Oh Tell Me the Truth About Love," 1938
One hour of right-down love
Is worth an age of dully living on.

Down on your knees, and thank heaven, fasting, for a good man's love.
As You Like It, 1600
Love has its own instinct. It knows how to find the road to the heart just as the weakest insect moves toward its flower by an irresistible will which fears nothing.
HONORE DE BALZAC
La Femme de Trente Ans, 1832
