Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1092

Quick stealthy glance is not half the pleasure
of making love, it’s more.

கண்களவு கொள்ளுஞ் சிறுநோக்கம் காமத்திற்
செம்பாக மன்று பெரிது.

Her quick glance at him gives him so much pleasure that he thinks that this is not half the pleasure of making love, it is more than that. Love is in the mind, not just the physical act. So Valluvar stresses on the anticipation and eagerness of love more than the physical act itself.
