"A girl's affections should never be won unsought."
But love a womman that she woot it nought, And she wol quyte it that thow shalt nat fele; Unknowe, unkist, and lost, that is unsought.Geoffrey Chaucer
My whole life have I lived in pleasant thought, As if life's business were a summer mood; As if all needful things would come unsought To genial faith, still rich in genial good.william wordsworth
You may choose your word like a connoisseur,And polish it up with art,But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays,Is the word that comes from the heart.You may work on your word a thousand weeks,But it will not glow like oneThat all unsought, leaps forth white hot,When the fountains of feeling run.ella wheeler wilcox
I define serendipity as the art of making an unsought finding.Pek van Andel
To search for unasked questions, plus questions to put to already acquired but unsought answers, it is vital to give full play to the imagination. That is the way to create truly original science.e. o. wilson
Her virtue and the conscience of her worth, That would be wooed, and not unsought be won.john milton

I send thee pansies while the year is young, Yellow as sunshine, purple as the night; Flowers of remembrance, ever fondly sung By all the chiefest of the Sons of Light; And if in recollection lives regret For wasted days and dreams that were not true, I tell thee that the "pansy freak'd with jet" Is still the heart's ease that the poets knew Take all the sweetness of a gift unsought, And for the pansies send me back a thought.
Love sought is good, but giv'n unsought is better.
Abortion may be sinful or immoral, but it is not the function of the law to enforce the whole of morality. It is difficult to understand what religious or moral principle, what divine or human purpose, is served by compelling underprivileged women to undergo pregnancy for the full term and to bear unsought and frequently unwanted children or to risk sickness or death at the hands of incompetent and frequently lecherous and importunate abortionists. No doubt the fact that the price of maintaining this principle is paid almost exclusively by the poor has delayed its critical examination.
The thoughts that come often unsought, and, as it were, drop into the mind, are commonly the most valuable of any we have, and therefore should be secured, because they seldom return again.
Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.william shakespeare
