„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.

„I see a face of love,
Fair as sweet music when my heart was strong:
Yea — art thou come again to me, great Song?“

—  George Eliot English novelist, journalist and translator 1819 - 1880

The face bent over him like silver night
In long-remembered summers; that calm light
Of days which shine in firmaments of thought,
That past unchangeable, from change still wrought.

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

—  Elizabeth Barrett Browning, книга Sonnets from the Portuguese

No. XIV
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.

„But whither am I strayed? I need not raise
Trophies to thee from other men's dispraise;
Nor is thy fame on lesser ruins built;
Nor needs thy juster title the foul guilt
Of Eastern kings, who, to secure their reign,
Must have their brothers, sons, and kindred slain.“

—  John Denham English poet and courtier 1615 - 1669
