And I will luve thee still,
my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

Robert Burns "A Red, Red Rose"

Let those love now who never
loved before;
Let those who always loved,
now love the more.

Thomas Parnell 1679-1718

Love - is anterior to Life -
Posterior - to Death -
Initial of Creation, and
The exponent of Earth.

Emily Dickinson
