Shakespeare said, 
"Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds," 
 Tennyson said,
"Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.”

Jane Austen said,
"There is nothing I would not do for those
who are really my friends.
 I have no notion of loving people by halves,
 it is not my nature."

Robert Frost said,
“We love the things we love for what they are.”

Sophocles said,
"One word frees us of all the weight
 and pain of life:that word is love."
 Charlotte Bronte said,
"“All my heart is yours, sir: it belongs to you;
 and with you it would remain,
 were fate to exile the rest of me
 from your presence forever.”
God said,
"Yeah, I have loved thee with an everlasting love:"
(Jeremiah 31: 3)
The world's writers
can use all the words our language offers:
still prefer this centuries-old sentence -- amazed and humbled.
It still applies to me.
Happy Valentine's Day
