Someone once said something along the lines of "Love isn't who you can see yourself with, it's who you can't see yourself without". Does anyone know who said this? Thanks to all for even trying.

It's all over the Net on various "love sayings" sites with no attribution.

But love is blind and lovers cannot see
The pretty follies that themselves commit;
For if they could, Cupid himself would blush
To see me thus transformed to a boy.
~ William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), The Merchant of Venice, Act II Scene 6

There's hundreds more variations, here are a few:

Love is blind, and greed insatiable.
~~Chinese proverb.
http://www.bartleby.com/66/68/2268.html
http://www.giga-usa.com/gigaweb1/quotes ... rbx156.htm

Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
Love can transpose to form and dignity.
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
~~William Shakespeare (1564–1616), British dramatist, poet. Helena, in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, act 1, sc. 1, l. 232-5.
Love is conventionally roused through sight, but the lover also lacks judgment in seeing beauty where others do not, hence the proverb, “Love is without reason.” Cupid was often represented as blind or blindfolded, since his arrows were supposed to be fired at random.

Love is blind; friendship closes its eyes.
~~Anonymous.
http://www.angelfire.com/journal/quotes ... age25.html
http://www.bartleby.com/66/77/3577.html

The heart is blind; but love is not blind. None of the gods is so discriminating.
~~Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862), U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist. Essay on “Love” in letter, September 1852, to Harrison Blake, in The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 6, p. 200, Houghton Mifflin (1906).

How can you say that love is blind? Keener than a young eagle’s is its sight.
~~Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872), Austrian author. “On a Gift Eyeglass,” Poems (1821).

It is not love, but lack of love, which is blind.
~~Glenway Wescott, NY Herald Tribune 19 Dec 65
