From the Bible

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth— for your love is more delightful than wine. – Song of Solomon 1:2

Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. – Song of Solomon 8:6

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love – 1 Corinthians 13:13

From Poetry

Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,
List while I woo thee with soft melody;
Gone are the cares of life’s busy throng.

Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

-Excerpt from Beautiful Dreamer, Stephen Foster

The sense of the world is short,
Long and various the report,
To love and be beloved;
Men and gods have not outlearned it,
And how oft soe’er they’ve turned it,
‘Tis not to be improved.

-Eros, Ralph Waldo Emerson

From Literature

You are my heart, my life, my one and only thought. –Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The White Company

That quiet mutual gaze of a trusting husband and wife is like the first moment of rest or refuge from a great weariness or a great danger–not to be interfered with by speech or action which would distract the sensations from the fresh enjoyment of repose. -George Eliot, Silas Marner

Love is in all things a most wonderful teacher. -Charles Dickens: Our Mutual Friend
