Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
— William Shakespeare

Remove the temptation of idleness and cupids bow is useless.
Ovid cupidity quote

Sure there is music even in the beauty, and the silent note which Cupid strikes, far sweeter than the sound of an instrument. For there is music where ever there is a harmony, order, or proportion: and thus far we may maintain the music of the spheres.
— Sir Thomas Browne

When I work, I try to eat as much vegetarian as possible. When I do Cupid, I eat vegetarian because I need the energy. I've got those wings on my back.
— Karl Urban

I once took pleasure some place in seeing men, through piety, take a vow of ignorance, as of chastity, poverty, penitence. It is also castrating our disorderly appetites, to blunt that cupidity that pricks us on to the study of books, and to deprive the soul of that voluptuous complacency which tickles us with the notion of being learned.
— cupidity quotation by Michel de Montaigne
