Yes, loving is a painful thrill,
And not to love more painful still;
But oh, it is the worst of pain,
To love and not be lov'd again.
MOORE—Anacreontic. Ode 29.

(See also COWLEY)

Love is all in fire, and yet is ever freezing;
Love is much in winning, yet is more in leesing:
Love is ever sick, and yet is never dying;
Love is ever true, and yet is ever lying;
Love does doat in liking, and is mad in loathing;
Love indeed is anything, yet indeed is nothing.
Thos. MIDDLETON-Blurt, Master Constable.

Act II. Sc. 2.

I never heard
Of any true affection but 'twas nipped.

The same look which she turn'd when he rose. MOOREBelieve Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms. St. 2.

Still travels on its way
And channels deeper as it rins

The luve o' life's young day.

Spied a blossom passing fair,

All unseen can passage find;

Wish'd himself the heaven's breath.
