John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5122
AUTHOR:Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832)
QUOTATION:True love ’s the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven:
  It is not fantasy’s hot fire,
    Whose wishes soon as granted fly;
  It liveth not in fierce desire,
    With dead desire it doth not die;
It is the secret sympathy,
The silver link, the silken tie,
Which heart to heart and mind to mind
In body and in soul can bind.
ATTRIBUTION:Lay of the Last Minstrel. Canto v. Stanza 13.
WORKS:Sir Walter Scott Collection.
