Classic Love Quote

Famous Classic Love Quotes


There is love in the air,
here there and everywhere.

Well, how was that for a first shot at poetry writing? Well, love quotes have been my favorite types of quotes. But, as a regular visitor to this site, you would already know that. Here is yet another collection of love quotes. This time, I present classic love quotes, i.e., love quotes by famous writers and poets of the past century.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
All mankind love a lover.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Thou art to me a delicious torment.

Alexander Pope
For love deceives the best of womankind.

Alexander Pope
And seem to walk on wings, and tread in air.

Walt Whitman
I will write the evangel-poem of comrades and of love.

Edgar Allan Poe
Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute.

Edgar Allan Poe
This maiden she lived with no other thought,
Than to love and be loved by me.

John Keats
Love in a hut, with water and a crust,
Is - Love, forgive us! - cinders, ashes, dust.

Alexander Pope
Love seldom haunts the breast where learning lies,
And Venus sets ere Mercury can rise.

Alexander Pope
Curse on all laws but those which love has made!
Love, free as air at sight of human ties,
Spreads his light wings, and in a moment flies.

Edgar Allan Poe
And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams,
Are where thy dark eye glances,
And where thy footstep gleams - In what ethereal dances,
By what eternal streams.

Robert Browning
For life, with all it yields of joy and woe,
And hope and fear (believe the aged friend),
Is just our chance o' the prize of learning love -
How love might be, hath been indeed, and is.

William Wordsworth
Mightier far,
Than strength of nerve or sinew, or the sway,
Of magic potent over sun and star,
Is Love, though oft to agony distrest,
And though his favorite seat be feeble woman's breast.
