The Works of Richard Lovelace

The world will have forgotten all the great masterpieces
of literature when it forgets Lovelace's three verses to
Lucasta on his going to the wars.  More durable than
marble or bronze are the words, “I could not love thee,
deare, so much, loved I not honor more.”

Thomas Bailey Aldrich
