By art he gladly found what he did seek, A full requital of his striving pain. Art can do much, but this maxim's most sure: A weak or wounded brain admits no cure.
— Anne Dudley Bradstreet

O world, world! thus is the poor agent despised. O traitors and bawds, how earnestly are you set a-work, and how ill requited! Why should our endeavor be so loved, and the performance so loathed?
William Shakespeare requital quote

Men are more prone to revenge injuries than to requite kindness.
— Thomas Fuller

The act of longing for something will always be more intense than the requiting of it.
— Gail Godwin

We love even when our love is not requited.
— requital quotation by Mortimer Adler
