They say, “Love is all you need.” Who is this “they?” Who are these people who are quoted so often that their quotes acquire the status of proverbs? They are people like us who, having fallen in love, could not help putting their feelings in words. Given below are a few such axioms and proverbs on the subject of love.
To be loved, be lovable.
Gather the rose of love whilst yet is time.
You call it madness, but I call it love.

At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

A man falls in love through his eyes; a woman through her ears.
Any time not spent in love is wasted.
There is no difference between a wise man and a fool when they fall in love.
