    Let love steal in disguised as friendship.
    -Ovid

    He who is in love is wise and is becoming wiser, sees newly every time he looks at the object beloved, drawing from it with his eyes and his mind those virtues which it possesses.
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: Where "I" does not exist, nor "You", so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
    -Excerpt from 100 Love Sonnets

    All I ask of a woman is that she should feel gently towards me.
    when my heart feels kindly towards her,
    and there should be the soft, soft tremor as of unheard bells between us.
    It is all I ask.
    I am so tired of violent women lashing out and insisting on being loved, when there is no love in them.
    -D.H. Lawrence

    Life is short. Be swift to love! Make haste to be kind!
    -Henri F. Amiel

    The more I give to thee the more I have,
    for both are infinite.

    Than never to have loved at all.
    -Baron Alfred Tennyson

    Love conquers all.
    -Virgil

    Love, unconquerable,
    Waster of rich men, keeper
    Of warm lights and all-night vigil
    In the soft face of a girl:
    Sea-wanderer, forest-visitor!
    Even the pure immortals cannot escape you,
    And mortal man, in his one day's dusk,
    Trembles before your glory.
    -Sophocles

    One word
    Frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
    That word is love.

    Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned,
    Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.

    -Emmet Fox

    He who is in love is wise and is becoming wiser, sees newly every time he looks at the object beloved, drawing from it with his eyes and his mind those virtues which it possesses.
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
    May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.
    -William Shakespeare

    Hereafter, in a better world than this,
    I shall desire more love and knowledge of you.
    -William Shakespeare

    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

    Love seeketh not itself to please,
    Nor for itself hath any care,
    But for another gives its ease,
    And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
    -William Blake

    I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
    -Roy Croft

    Love Is....

    line

    Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
    -Bruce Lee

    Love is what separates us from the animals.
    -Red Dwarf TV Show

    Love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can't live without. Someone you fall head over heels for. Find someone you can love like crazy, and will love you the same way back. Listen to your heart. No sense in life without this. To make the journey without falling deeply in love, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try, because if you haven't tried, then you haven't lived.
    -Meet Joe Balck Movie

    Love is an equation: a me and a you derives a we.

    Among those whom I like, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.
    -W.H. Auden

    Love--incomparably the greatest psychotherapeutic agent--is something that professional psychiatry cannot of itself create, focus, nor release.
    -Gordon Willard Allport

    There are few people who would not be ashamed of being loved when they love no longer.
    -François de la Rochefoucauld

    People who are not in love fail to understand how an intelligent man can suffer because of a very ordinary woman. This is like being surprised that anyone should be stricken with cholera because of a creature so insignificant as the common bacillus.

    The passion of love is essentially selfish, while motherhood widens the circle of our feelings.
    -Honoré De Balzac

    -M.Scott Peck

    Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be.

    -Erica Jong

    It's very easy to feel someone's pain when you love them.
    -Salma Hayek

    Love will enter cloaked in friendship's name.
    -Ovid

    That is the true season of love, when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved so before us, and that no one will love in the same way after us.
    -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    What is it about possessing things? Why do we feel the need to own what we love, and why do we become jerks when we do? We've all been there-- you want something, to possess it. By possessing something you lose it. You finally win the girl of your dreams, the first thing you do is change her. The little things she does with her hair, the way she wears her clothes or the way she chews her gum. Pretty soon what you like, what you changed, what you don't like, blends together like a watercolor in the rain.
    -Jeff Melvoin,

    I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.

    -Robert Heinlein

    A man is not where he lives, but where he loves.
    -Latin Proverb

    -Elbert Hubbard

    Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.

    -Spanish Proverb

    Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.

    -Ursula K. LeGuin

    > The really potent part of love is that it allows you to carry around beliefs about yourself that make you feel special, desirable, precious, innately good. Your lover couldn't have seen [these qualities] in you, even temporarily, if they weren't part of your essential being.
    -Martha Beck,

    To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage, because we don't want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt.

    The roses, the lovely notes, the dining and dancing are all welcome and splendid. But when the Godiva is gone, the gift of real love is having someone who'll go the distance with you. Someone who, when the wedding day limo breaks down, is willing to share a seat on the bus.

    We can only learn to love by loving.
    -Iris Murdoch

    The first duty of love is to listen.

    -Ellen Goodman

    Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again - this is the brave and happy life.
    -J. E. Buchrose

    Dignity and love do not blend well, nor do they continue long together.
    -Ovid

    Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

    Where love reigns the impossible may be attained.
    -Indian Proverb

    Marriage has in it less of beauty, but more of safety, than the single life; it hath not more ease, but less danger; it is more merry and more sad; it is fuller of sorrows and fuller of joys; it lies under more burdens, but is supported by all the strengths of love and charity; and those burdens are delightful. Marriage is the mother of the world, and preserves kingdoms, and fills cities and churches, and heaven itself.
