James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Suckling
 
  Joy never feasts so high as when the first course is of misery.  1
  Love that can flow, and can admit increase, / Admits as well an ebb, and may grow less.  2
  ’Tis expectation makes a blessing dear; / Heaven were not heaven if we knew what it were.  3
  True love is still the same; the torrid zones, / And those more rigid ones, / It must not know; / For love grown cold or hot / Is lust or friendship, not / The thing we show.  4
