A Quote by Sir Walter Scott on body, death, desires, fantasy, gifts, god, heart, heaven, love, mind, secrets, soul, sympathy, and wishes

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.

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832)
