I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Love sought is good, but given unsought is better.
Twelfth Night, 3:1
Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs.
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes.
Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears.
What is it else? a madness most discreet,
A choking gall and a preserving sweet.
Romeo and Juliet, 1:1
They do not love that do not show their love.
Two Gentlemen of Verona, 1:2
The course of true love never did run smooth.
A Midsummer Night's Dream, 1:2
If music be the food of love, play on.
Twelfth Night, 1:1
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
A Midsummer Night's Dream, 1:1
Is love a tender thing? it is too rough,
Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.
Romeo and Juliet, 1:4
Hear my soul speak:
The very instant that I saw you, did
My heart fly to your service.
The Tempest, 3:1
Love is like a child,
That longs for everything it can come by.
Two Gentlemen of Verona, 3:1
