Love is not without fear
Whate (sic) the heart thinks the mouth speaks
Who loves me well loves my dog also
Seek your salve where you got your sore (A Hand-book of Proverbs: Comprising Ray's Collection of English Proverbs ... By Henry George Bohn, John Ray, Page 482)
Love is shown by many a bitter sign (from The complete works, Volume 1
By George Noël Gordon Byron (Baron Byron), John Galt)
Love and red nose can't be hid
The new love oft chaseth out the old
Love is ne'er without jealousy.
