„But love me for love's sake, that evermore
Thou may'st love on, through love's eternity“

—  Элизабет Барретт Браунинг, книга Sonnets from the Portuguese

No. XIV
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.

„Once for all, then, a short precept is given thee: Love, and do what thou wilt: whether thou hold thy peace, through love hold thy peace; whether thou cry out, through love cry out; whether thou correct, through love correct; whether thou spare, through love do thou spare: let the root of love be within, of this root can nothing spring but what is good.“

„I want to love, to love heedlessly!
To love for the sake of loving: Here…there…
This one, that other and everyone…
To love! To love! And love no one!
[…]
He who loves someone and says that love’s fire
Can last a lifetime is nothing but a liar!“

—  Florbela Espanca Portuguese poet 1894 - 1930

Eu quero amar, amar perdidamente!
Amar só por amar: aqui... além...
Mais Este e Aquele, o Outro e toda a gente...
Amar! Amar! E não amar ninguém!
[...]
Quem disser que se pode amar alguém
Durante a vida inteira é porque mente!

Источник: Man's Search for Meaning (1946; 1959; 1984)
Контексте: A thought transfixed me: for the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth — that love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. … For the first time in my life I was able to understand the meaning of the words, "The angels are lost in perpetual contemplation of an infinite glory."
