The best love quotes are Shakespeare quotes, no doubt about it. Not that some do not suggest a certain ambivalence, no? The man, as writer, was said to possess "negative capability," or the knack for removing himself and his own, true opinion from his works. No one is sure who he really was, what he actually thought, whether he was happy or discontented in his marriage; he remains an enigma.
Venus
?Art thou obdurate, flinty, hard as steel, Nay, more than flint, for stone at rain relenteth? Art thou a woman?s son, and canst not feel What ?tis to love? How want of love tormenteth? O, had thy mother borne so hard a mind, She had not brought forth thee, but died unkind.?
From Venus and Adonis, Shakespeare quotes
?Call it not love, for Love to heaven is fled, Since sweating Lust on earth usurp?d his name; Under whose simple semblance he hath fed Upon fresh beauty, blotting it with blame; Which the hot tyrant stains and soon bereaves, As caterpillars do the tender leaves.?
William Shakespeare, Shakespeare quotes
Venus and Adonis
He after honour hunts, I after love: He leaves his friends to dignify them more, I leave myself, my friends and all, for love. Thou, Julia, thou hast metamorphosed me, Made me neglect my studies, lose my time, War with good counsel, set the world at nought; Made wit with musing weak, heart sick with thought.
William ShakespeareTwo Gentlemen of Verona
The more my wrong, the more his spite appears: What, did he marry me to famish me? Beggars, that come unto my father?s door, Upon entreaty have a present aims; If not, elsewhere they meet with charity: But I, who never knew how to entreat, Nor never needed that I should entreat, Am starved for meat, giddy for lack of sleep, With oath kept waking and with brawling fed: And that which spites me more than all these wants, He does it under name of perfect love; As who should say, if I should sleep or eat, ?Twere deadly sickness or else present death. I prithee go and get me some repast; I care not what, so it be wholesome food.
William ShakespeareTaming of the Shrew
She marking them begins a wailing note
And sings extemporally a woeful ditty;
How love makes young men thrall and old men dote;
How love is wise in folly, foolish-witty:
Her heavy anthem still concludes in woe,
And still the choir of echoes answer so.
From Venus and Adonis
?O, know?st thou not his looks are my soul?s food? Pity the dearth that I have pined in, By longing for that food so long a time. Didst thou but know the inly touch of love, Thou wouldst as soon go kindle fire with snow As seek to quench the fire of love with words.?
William ShakespeareTwo Gentlemen of Verona, Shakespeare quotes
Signior Hortensio, ?twixt such friends as we Few words suffice; and therefore, if thou know One rich enough to be Petruchio?s wife, As wealth is burden of my wooing dance, Be she as foul as was Florentius? love, As old as Sibyl and as curst and shrewd As Socrates? Xanthippe, or a worse, She moves me not, or not removes, at least, Affection?s edge in me, were she as rough As are the swelling Adriatic seas: I come to wive it wealthily in Padua; If wealthily, then happily in Padua.
From Taming of the Shrew
?Signior Baptista, my business asketh haste, And every day I cannot come to woo. You knew my father well, and in him me, Left solely heir to all his lands and goods, Which I have better?d rather than decreased: Then tell me, if I get your daughter?s love, What dowry shall I have with her to wife??
William ShakespeareTaming of the Shrew
Some glory in their birth, some in their skill,
Some in their wealth, some in their bodies? force,
Some in their garments, though new-fangled ill,
Some in their hawks and hounds, some in their horse;
And every humour hath his adjunct pleasure,
Wherein it finds a joy above the rest:
But these particulars are not my measure;
All these I better in one general best.
Thy love is better than high birth to me,
Richer than wealth, prouder than garments? cost,
Of more delight than hawks or horses be;
And having thee, of all men?s pride I boast:
Wretched in this alone, that thou mayst take
All this away and me most wretched make.
From Sonnets
When my love swears that she is made of truth
I do believe her, though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutor?d youth,
Unlearned in the world?s false subtleties.
Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
Although she knows my days are past the best,
Simply I credit her false speaking tongue:
On both sides thus is simple truth suppress?d.
But wherefore says she not she is unjust?
And wherefore say not I that I am old?
O, love?s best habit is in seeming trust,
And age in love loves not to have years told:
Therefore I lie with her and she with me,
And in our faults by lies we flatter?d be.
Shakespeare quotes from Sonnets
?Petruchio, since we are stepp?d thus far in, I will continue that I broach?d in jest. I can, Petruchio, help thee to a wife With wealth enough and young and beauteous, Brought up as best becomes a gentlewoman: Her only fault, and that is faults enough, Is that she is intolerable curst And shrewd and froward, so beyond all measure That, were my state far worser than it is, I would not wed her for a mine of gold.?
From Taming of the Shrew
When he did frown, O, had she then gave over, Such nectar from his lips she had not suck?d. Foul words and frowns must not repel a lover; What though the rose have prickles, yet ?tis pluck?d: Were beauty under twenty locks kept fast, Yet love breaks through and picks them all at last.
William Shakespeare, Shakespeare quotes from Venus and Adonis
Thurio, give back, or else embrace thy death; Come not within the measure of my wrath; Do not name Silvia thine; if once again, Verona shall not hold thee. Here she stands; Take but possession of her with a touch: I dare thee but to breathe upon my love.
Shakespeare quotes from Two Gentlemen of Verona
?Not for the world: why, man, she is mine own, And I as rich in having such a jewel As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl, The water nectar and the rocks pure gold. Forgive me that I do not dream on thee, Because thou see?st me dote upon my love. My foolish rival, that her father likes Only for his possessions are so huge, Is gone with her along, and I must after, For love, thou know?st, is full of jealousy.?

In love Who respects friend?
From Two Gentlemen of Verona
?At mine unworthiness that dare not offer What I desire to give, and much less take What I shall die to want. But this is trifling; And all the more it seeks to hide itself, The bigger bulk it shows. Hence, bashful cunning! And prompt me, plain and holy innocence! I am your wife, it you will marry me; If not, I?ll die your maid: to be your fellow You may deny me; but I?ll be your servant, Whether you will or no.?
William ShakespeareThe Tempest, Shakespeare quotes set
?Fie, fie! unknit that threatening unkind brow, And dart not scornful glances from those eyes, To wound thy lord, thy king, thy governor: It blots thy beauty as frosts do bite the meads, Confounds thy fame as whirlwinds shake fair buds, And in no sense is meet or amiable.
A woman moved is like a fountain troubled, Muddy, ill-seeming, thick, bereft of beauty; And while it is so, none so dry or thirsty Will deign to sip or touch one drop of it.
Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, Thy head, thy sovereign; one that cares for thee, And for thy maintenance commits his body To painful labour both by sea and land, To watch the night in storms, the day in cold, Whilst thou liest warm at home, secure and safe; And craves no other tribute at thy hands But love, fair looks and true obedience; Too little payment for so great a debt. Such duty as the subject owes the prince Even such a woman oweth to her husband; And when she is froward, peevish, sullen, sour, And not obedient to his honest will, What is she but a foul contending rebel And graceless traitor to her loving lord?
[Apparently, Kate had not heard of the feminist movement.—Ed]
I am ashamed that women are so simple To offer war where they should kneel for peace; Or seek for rule, supremacy and sway, When they are bound to serve, love and obey. Why are our bodies soft and weak and smooth, Unapt to toil and trouble in the world, [He spent so much time in London, that he possibly hadn't noticed how hard Anne Hathaway, was multitasking at home with the small fry.—Ed]
But that our soft conditions and our hearts Should well agree with our external parts? Come, come, you froward and unable worms! My mind hath been as big as one of yours, My heart as great, my reason haply more, To bandy word for word and frown for frown; But now I see our lances are but straws, Our strength as weak, our weakness past compare, That seeming to be most which we indeed least are. Then vail your stomachs, for it is no boot, And place your hands below your husband?s foot: In token of which duty, if he please, My hand is ready; may it do him ease.?
Shakespeare quotes from Taming of the Shrew
Is she kind as she is fair? For beauty lives with kindness. Love doth to her eyes repair, To help him of his blindness, And, being help?d, inhabits there.
Shakespeare quotes from Two Gentlemen of Verona
?Ask me no reason why I love you; for though Love use Reason for his physician, he admits him not for his counsellor. You are not young, no more am I; go to then, there?s sympathy: you are merry, so am I; ha, ha! Then there?s more sympathy: you love sack, and so do I; would you desire better sympathy? Let it suffice thee, Mistress Page,--at the least, if the love of soldier can suffice,-- that I love thee. I will not say, pity me; ?tis not a soldier-like phrase: but I say, love me. By me, Thine own true knight, By day or night, Or any kind of light, With all his might For thee to fight. . .?
Shakespeare quotes from Merry Wives of Windsor
So dear I love him that with him, All deaths I could endure. Without him, live no life.
Shakespeare quotes from Romeo and Juliet
