NUMBER:5860
AUTHOR:Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
QUOTATION:All love is sweet,
Given or returned. Common as light is love,
And its familiar voice wearies not ever.
     .     .     .     .     .     .
They who inspire it most are fortunate,
As I am now; but those who feel it most
Are happier still. 1
ATTRIBUTION:Prometheus Unbound. Act ii. Sc. 5.
WORKS:Percy Bysshe Shelley Collection.
 
Note 1.
The pleasure of love is in loving. We are much happier in the passion we feel than in that we inspire.—Francis, Duc de La Rochefoucauld: Maxim 259. [back]
