Lord Byron

"She walks in Beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellow'd to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies."
Lord Byron
Hebrew Melodies (1815) Byron was notorious for his varied tastes in both women and men. This poem was written about one Mrs. R. Wilmot. (Berry Memoirs, vol. iii. p. 7), about whom little is known. This was not the only poem directed at a woman who Byron did not revisit in later work. Regardless, one cannot discount the simplicity and subsequent beauty of the poem. Add Category or Author

"I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out." Roy Croft
The poem this is attributed to, by Roy Croft, is nearly identical to a German-language poem by Eric Fried titled "Ich liebe dich" ("I Love You"). Little is known about either poem, so it is difficult to say if Croft actually wrote this poem or if he translated Fried's poem and ended up with the credit. Often the quote is attributed to "Anonymous" or Elizabeth Browning, as well. Add Category or Author
