Never give all the heart, for love. Will hardly seem worth thinking of. To passionate women if it seem. Certain, and they never dream. That it fades out from kiss to kiss;. For everything that's lovely is. But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.. — W. B. Yeats. Down through the millennia the emotion of love has inspired countless poets to great heights of lyrical expression.
