|None without hope eer lovd the brightest fair;|
But Love can hope, where Reason would despair.
|Let those love now who never lovd before,|
And those who always lovd now love the more.
Parnell.The Vigil of Venus, the last Lines.
| To soothe|
That agony of heart which they alone
Who best have lovd, who best have been beloved
Can feel or pity.
Rev. W. Mason.The English Garden, Book I.
|Tis better to have loved and lost,|
Than never to have loved at all.
Tennyson.In Memoriam, XXVII.
|How many are not lovd who think they are!|
Yet all are willing to believe the fair:
And, though tis Beautys known and obvious cheat,
Yet mans self-love still favours the deceit.
Dryden.The Conquest of Granada, Part II., Act II. Scene 1.
|One that lovd not wisely, but too well.|
Shakespeare.Othello, Act V. Scene 2. (Othello to Lodovico.)
