HandHoldingDaisybyBubbels124147_-T13I tried to find some less familiar love quotes for today’s Thirteen:

  1. I found my lover on his bed, and my heart was sweet to excess. ~ Love Songs of the New Kingdom (c. 1550-1080 B.C.)
  2. Love, who is the most beautiful among the immortal gods, the melter of limbs, overwhelms in their hearts the intelligence and wise counsel of all gods and all men. ~ Hesiod

  5. Love knows nothing of order. ~ Saint Jerome
  6. This night of no moon
    There is no way to meet him.

    My breast pounds, a leaping flame,
    My heart is consumed in fire. ~ Ono no Komachi
  7. The eyes those silent tongues of love. ~ Miguel de Cervantes
  8. Love is a spirit all compact of fire, Not gross to sink, but light, and will aspire. ~ Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis, l. 149

    For loving , and for saying so
    In whining poetry. ~ John Donne

  11. There is no disguise which can for long conceal love where it exists or simulate it where it does not. ~ François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld
  12. Yes, I’m in love, I feel it now
    And Caelia has undone me;
    And yet I swear I can’t tell how
    The pleasing plague stole on me. ~ William Whitehead
  13. The light that lies
    In woman’s eyes,
    Has been my heart’s undoing. ~ Thomas Moore
