A bit of Dr. Seuss’ Cicero:

Amor laudis hominēs trahit.
Love draws humanity’s praise.
El amor atrae la alabanza de la humanidad.
Ἀγάπη κλέου ἀνθρώπους φέρρει.

It is hard to imagine Cicero writing about love, but he actually had an entire treatise on friendship and its effect on individuals. Some of our most common tropes on friends and love come from the man that was most known for his political ambition. Notice I used Ἀγάπη in the Ancient Greek. The strongest form of love there was in the language; certainly what Cicero meant by ‘Amor,’ and what we mean by ‘love’ today.
