„If music and sweet poetry agree.
As they must needs (the sister and the brother),
Then must the love be great 'twixt thee and me,
Because thou lov'st the one, and I the other.“

To His Friend, Mr. R. L., In Praise of Music and Poetry http://rpo.library.utoronto.ca/poem/129.html, l. 1.

Rose-lipp'd queen of poesy,
Sweet Erato, thou whose chords
Waken but for love-touched words!“

„If thou must love me, let it be for nought
Except for love's sake only.“

—  Elizabeth Barrett Browning, книга Sonnets from the Portuguese

Источник: Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850)
Контексте: If thou must love me, let it be for nought
Except for love's sake only. Do not say
"I love her for her smile —her look —her way
Of speaking gently,—for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
A sense of pleasant ease on such a day" -
For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
Be changed, or change for thee,—and love, so wrought,
May be unwrought so. Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks dry,—
A creature might forget to weep, who bore
Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!
But love me for love's sake, that evermore
Thou may'st love on, through love's eternity.

With a magic like thee;
And like music on the waters
Is thy sweet voice to me.“
