John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5310
AUTHOR:Robert Southey (1774–1843)
QUOTATION:They sin who tell us love can die;
With life all other passions fly,
  All others are but vanity.
     .     .     .     .     .
    Love is indestructible,
  Its holy flame forever burneth;
From heaven it came, to heaven returneth.
     .     .     .     .     .
  It soweth here with toil and care,
But the harvest-time of love is there.
ATTRIBUTION:The Curse of Kehama. Canto x. Stanza 10.
