[L]ove is a magician who can make anchors of shadows and cables of cobwebs; can extract honey from gall, and gall from honey. ~Jane Harvey, Memoirs of an Author, 1812

Love is the magician that paints roses in a woman's cheek — and leaves wrinkles in her heart. ~Helen Rowland, "Speaking of Love," 1922

Love is the magician of the ages, the quickening spirit of the eternities, the mightiest power of the universe, forever the same through endless aeons. ~C. A. Tillinghast, "The Ultimate Principle," 1916

Love is a magician that can make hearts change places in a second. Presto chango! ~Clyde Fitch, Barbara Frietchie, the Frederick Girl, 1900

[L]ove is the magician with ample power to clothe the bare walls of life with the beauty of June, and fill its blankest spaces with music and flowers. ~James Fotheringham, "The Love Poems: Natural Magic," Studies in the Poetry of Robert Browning, 1888

Love is the magician that pulls man out of his own hat. ~Ben Hecht

And so our conception of religion is getting roomier and more inclusive today, and love is the magician who has enlarged the temple! ~The Christian Leader, 1928

Love is the only bow on Life's dark cloud. It is the Morning and the Evening Star. It shines upon the cradle of the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of Art — inspirer of poet, patriot, and philosopher. It is the air and light of every heart — builder of every home — kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first to dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody, for Music is the voice of Love. Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of that wondrous flower — the heart — and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts — but with it earth is heaven, and we are gods. ~Robert G. Ingersoll, "Orthodoxy," 1884

Feed the body with a thousand pleasures and it is the same dead thing always. Only the spirit is capable of a multiplied life, and to the loving spirit the very stocks and stones open into avenues of glory. Love is the magician's wand that shows the secret riches of the most barren spot. It is Aladdin's lamp that compels the finest ministries. How weak we are when we are selfish. How strong when we are loving... We give from the finite, but we receive from the Infinite. Love is creative. It is continually producing, unfolding, enlarging, sweeping into new forms of beauty and power. Selfishness withers, compresses, annihilates. It is the grave. Love is resurgent, triumphant, immortal, unbounded. It comprehends all, assimilates all, achieves all; in a word, it is life. ~Putnam, as quoted in The Christian Pioneer, 1874

Love is the inspiration of all life and achievement. It was Love that called us into being. It was Love that pushed on to do and be. Love as inspiration is the mother of art; the quickener of poetry; the composer of music. Love is the magician who waves his wonderful wand over our thoughts and plans, making us awake to the passion of sacred movements that advances the world of humanity... Take the inspiration of love out of the world and we would make the world poor and sordid. ~Elwin Lincoln House, "The Psychology of Love," The Drama of the Face and Other Studies in Applied Psychology, 1919

In the line of Emerson and Whitman, Phelps strongly asserts the need for the poet to listen, to feel, to touch, to learn to see. Love is a magician, it is Merlin. It changes the drabness of everyday, unfetters the soul and the imagination, transcends reality. It is an escape from the self... ethereal butterflies alight gently on the very essence of the feeling. ~Rumanian Review, 1998

Transformation is a magical process, and there are conditions which are requisite to success: unwavering hope; pure and ardent desire; brooding devotion. If all the conditions are maintained, that intellectual vision is surrounded with a magnetic knot, through which the fiery, winged powers of the heart surge, until they have raised its rate of vibration a whole octave nearer to their own, and so have transformed it. Unwavering love is a magical power. ~A. D., in The Theosophical Quarterly, 1926

Yes, we have a tremendous need for love — love that captures our hearts and nourishes our spirits. In fact, our capacity to give and receive love is what ultimately defines us. Nothing we have "accomplished" in our lifetimes matters as much as the way we have loved one another. Love is a magical energy that is the very anchor, substance, and essence of life. ~Alan D. Wolfelt, Loving from the Outside In, Mourning from the Inside Out, 2012

Love is a magical thing. ~Warren Norvin Winslow, 1949

No pow'r could divide us, no terrors dismay,
No treasures could bribe us, no falshood betray,
No demons could tempt us, no pleasures could move,
No magic could bind us but the magic of Love,
The spell round my Heart was the Image of you,
Then how could I fail to be constant and true...
~John Christopher Smith, "The Enchanter," 1760 ♫

[F]alling in love is a magical, momentous life event... ~Judith Sills, 1988

Ah, how love's magic softens all earth's blunders,
Working its wonders with a fairy hand!
Making the garden, with the pale light streaming
From the moon's gleaming , an Enchanted Land.
~Gustav Davidson, The Madrigal, 1917

How wondrous is the magic glow
That Love's impressions throw on earth!
~Charles Morris, "The Magic of Love," Lyra Urbanica, 1840

Althea became wonderfully better as the days went on, and the lamp-maker's wife used to say that it was all through the garland of wild olive; but I am not so sure about that. I like to think it was the magic of love, which then, as now, gives each one of us fresh life and hope. When strength is failing, and hope is fading, there is surely no magic more potent than the magic of love. ~Beatrice Harraden, Untold Tales of the Past, 1897

All the magic of love, all its fire and rapture and sweet terror, seemed to flame up and burst into his soul... ~Ivan Turgenev, The Torrents of Spring, 1872, translated from the Russian by Constance Garnett, 1897

She was a picture of health and good temper. Her hair fell in careless folds over her shoulders, and like two stars there was the magic of love and tenderness in her eyes. And those ruddy cheeks seemed as though they had been bathed in the dew of the mountain heather. ~David Pugh Griffiths, The Last of the Quills, 1902

I wait in love's magic garden,
When the moon-white air is cool;
When the south-wind wakes each perfume,
As it ripples o'er the pool...
~J. M. Stuart-Young, "Love's Magic Garden," Minor Melodies, 1921

We gaze at the full moon together and borrow its silver light for our love songs. Scratch the surface of romance and what shimmers and gleams underneath is magic. The language of love is a magical one, with the power of desire at its core. ~Author unknown

Like a dragon, love is a magical paradox. Sometimes fierce. Sometimes tender. Always mysterious. Love is magical because we have spacious imaginations that allow us to be inside the reality of others. ~Kathleen Keating, The Love Therapy Book, 1992

[L]ove has the magic power to make of a beggar a king. ~Emma Goldman

Love is a magical maze that intrigues lovers to get lost in its mystery... ~John Scott Williams, "Hopes Wishes and Dreams," Read My Mind, 2007

The magic of love! It softens the heart for all that suffers in solitude. ~Normyx (Norman Douglas, 1868–1952), "Nerinda," Unprofessional Tales, 1901

Romeo and Juliet... It is the conquest of young affection over ancient hate, working, by Love's magic, reconciliation between two sundered families, although over an open grave. ~Lauchlan MacLean Watt, Attic & Elizabethan Tragedy, 1908
