Shakespeare in his work "A Midsummer Night's Dream" writes: Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind / And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind. / Nor hath love's mind of any judgement taste; / Wings and no eyes figure unheeded haste. / And therefore is love said to be a child / Because in choice he is so oft beguiled.
According to Crystalinks website, Cupid - Roman God of Love - was a continuously popular figure in the Middle Ages, when under Christian influence he often had a dual nature as Heavenly and Earthly love, and in the Renaissance, when a renewed interest in classical philosophy endowed him with complex allegorical meanings. In contemporary popular culture, Cupid is shown shooting his bow to inspire romantic love, often as an icon of Valentine's Day.
Rick Riordan in his work "The House of Hades" has a dialogue of Cupid as a character which goes as follows: "Oh, did you expect me to play fair?" Cupid laughed. "I am the god of love. I am never fair."
