Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Loved
 
None without hope e’er lov’d the brightest fair;
But Love can hope, where Reason would despair.
        Lyttleton.—Epigram.
  1
Let those love now who never lov’d before,
And those who always lov’d now love the more.
        Parnell.—The Vigil of Venus, the last Lines.
  2
  To soothe
That agony of heart which they alone
Who best have lov’d, who best have been beloved
Can feel or pity.
        Rev. W. Mason.—The English Garden, Book I.
  3
’Tis better to have loved and lost,
Than never to have loved at all.
        Tennyson.—In Memoriam, XXVII.
  4
How many are not lov’d who think they are!
Yet all are willing to believe the fair:
And, though ’tis Beauty’s known and obvious cheat,
Yet man’s self-love still favours the deceit.
        Dryden.—The Conquest of Granada, Part II., Act II. Scene 1.
  5
One that lov’d not wisely, but too well.
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act V. Scene 2. (Othello to Lodovico.)
