When we are together I stay awake all night
When I'm on my own I cannot sleep
Blessed be God for these two insomnias
And the difference between them.
Rumi

Not less of love, but expanding
Of love beyond desire, and so liberation
From the Future as well as the past.
T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding

There's such a thing as trying too hard
You got to sing like you don't need the money
Love like you'll never get hurt
You got to dance, dance, dance like nobody's watching
It's gotta come from the heart if you want it to work
Susana Clark & Richard Leigh, Come from the heart, (words and music)

 

Love is not a feeling. Love is an action, an activity... Genuine love implies commitment and the exercise of wisdom... love as the will to extend oneself for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth... true love is an act of will that often transcends ephemeral feelings of love or cathexis, it is correct to say, 'Love is as love does'.
Scott Peck, The Road Less Travelled (Arrow New-Age)


He who be
nds to himself a Joy
Doth the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the Joy as it flies
Lives in Eternity's sunrise.
Blake, William, Gnomic Verses

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.
Sophocles

Oh, Jacques, we're used to each other, we're a pair of captive hawks caught in the same cage, and so we've grown used to each other. That's what passes for love at this dim, shadowy end of the Camino Real.
Tennessee Williams

Whom shall I call on? Who will share with me
The wretched happiness of staying alive?

Sergei Yesenin

We all want to fall in love. Why?
Because that experience makes us feel completely alive,
where every sense is heightened,
and every emotion is magnified.
Our everyday reality is shattered
and we are flying into the heavens.
It may only last a moment, an hour, or an afternoon,
but that doesn't diminish its value,
because we are left with memories
that we treasure for the rest of our lives.

From the movie The Mirror Has Two Faces (starring Barbara Streisand)

Love is a moment that lasts forever...
Julie Wittey

Love is when you look into someone's eyes and see their heart.
Jill Petty

Speak low if you speak love.
William Shakespeare, Much Ado about Nothing, ACT II Scene 1.

Man is torn away from his primary union with nature, which characterizes animal existence. Having at the same time reason and imagination, he is aware of his aloneness and separateness; of his powerlessness and ignorance; of the accidentalness of his birth and death. He could not face this state of being for a second if he could not find new ties with his fellow man which replace the old ones regulated by instincts. Even if all his physiological needs were satisfied, he would experience his state of aloneness and individuation as a prison from which he had to break in order to preserve his sanity. (...) the necessity to unite with other living beings, to be related to them, is an imperative need on the fulfilment of which man's sanity depends. This need is behind all phenomena which constitute the whole gamut of intimate human relations, of all passions which are called love in the broadest sense of the word
Erich Fromm, The Sane Society

There is a comfort in the strength of love
'Twill make a thing endurable
Which else would overset the brain
Or break the human heart.
William Wordsworth, Michael, lines 456-460

L'amor chi move il sole e l'altre stelle.
[Love that moves the sun and the other stars].
Dante

However it is debased or misinterpreted, love is a redemptive feature. To focus on one individual so that their desires become superior to yours is a very cleansing experience.
Jeanette Winterson

For love … has two faces; one white, the other black; two bodies; one smooth, the other hairy. It has two hands, two feet, two tails, two, indeed, of every member and each one is the exact opposite of the other. Yet, so strictly are they joined together that you cannot separate them.
Virginia Woolf

Love is made by two people, in different kinds of solitude. It can be in a crowd, but in an oblivious crowd.
Louis Aragon

There is love of course. And then there's life, its enemy.
Jean Anouilh

A pity beyond all telling
Is hid in the heart of love.
W. B. Yeats

Will you still love me when I'm sixty-four?
Paul McCartney

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities.
Janos Arany

For aught that I could ever read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth.
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

And yet, to say the truth, reason and love
keep little company together now-a-days.
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears.
Woodrow Wyatt (b. 1918), British journalist. To the Point, "The Ears Have It" (1981). Wyatt's reasoning, apropos of women, was that "what is said to them and what they believe about a man's status is usually more important than the superficiality of good looks."

Of all the pain, the greatest pain,
It is to love, but in vain.
Abraham Cowley, Anacreontics

We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence,
and its only end.
Benjamin Disraeli, Sibyl

God, from a beautiful necessity, is Love.
Martin Farquhar Tupper, Of Immortality

In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns
to thoughts of love.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Locksley Hall

Love and a red nose can't be hid.
Thomas Holcroft, Duplicity

They sin who tell us Love can die:
With Life all other passions fly,
All others are but vanity.
Robert Southey, The Curse of Kehama

Say thou dost love me, love me-toll
The silver iterance!-only minding, Dear,
To love me also in silence with thy soul.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sonnets from the Portuguese

Unless it's mad, passionate, Extraordinary love, It's a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life Love shouldn't be one of them.
Movie: Dream for an Insomniac


If you say, I love you, then you have already fallen in love with language, which is already a form of break up and infidelity.
Jean Baudrillard

I don't want to live - I want to love first, And live incidentally.
Zelda Fitzgerald, letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1919


You know it's love when you want to give joy and damn the consequences."
Frank Herbert, God Emperor of Dune


When we understand that man is the only animal who must create meaning, who must open a wedge into neutral nature, we already understand the essence of love. Love is the problem of an animal who must find life, create a dialogue with nature in order to experience his own being.
Ernest Becker

To love someone is to isolate him from the world, wipe out every trace of him, dispossess him of his shadow, drag him into a murderous future. It is to circle around the other like a dead star and absorb him into a black light.
Jean Baudrillard

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Bible, New Testament, 1 John 4:18.

Perfect love is rare indeed -
for to be a lover will require that you continually
have the subtlety of the very wise,
the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist,
the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint,
the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain.
Leo Buscaglia

For one human being to love another:
that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks;
the ultimate, the last test and proof,
the work for which all other work is but preparation.
Rainer Maria Rilke

Do you love me because I am beautiful,
or am I beautiful because you love me?
Cinderella

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
Bible, Corinthians 13:4-8

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
no disease that enough love will not heal;
no door that enough love will not open;
no gulf that enough love will not bridge;
no wall that enough love will not throw down;
no sin that enough love will not redeem...
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble;
how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough you would be
the happiest and most powerful being in the world...
Emmet Fox


If I place love above everything, it is because for me it is the most desperate, the most despairing state of affairs imaginable.
André Breton

Love seeketh only self to please,
To bind another to its delight,
Joys in another's loss of ease,
And builds a Hell in Heaven's despite.
William Blake

I f thou must love me, let it be for nought
Except for love's sake only. Do not say,
I love her for her smile … her look … her way
Of speaking gently … for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine, and, certes, brought
A sense of pleasant ease on such a day-
For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
Be changed, or change for thee-and love so wrought,
May be unwrought so.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The desire for possession is insatiable, to such a point that it can survive even love itself. To love, therefore, is to sterilize the person one loves.
Albert Camus

Love is the extra effort we make in our dealings with those whom we do not like and once you understand that, you understand all. This idea that love overtakes you is nonsense. This is but a polite manifestation of sex. To love another you have to undertake some fragment of their destiny.
Quentin Crisp

Art is not necessary at all. All that is necessary to make this world a better place to live in is to love-to love as Christ loved, as Buddha loved.
Isadora Duncan

They do not love that do not show their love.
John Heywood, Proverbs

What the world needs now,
Is love,
Sweet love.

I feel it when I when I sorrow most:
It is better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam

Then, must you speak
Of one that loved not wisely but too well.
William Shakespeare, Othello

Love sought is good,
but given unsought is better
William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

All is fair in love and war.
Francais Edward Smedley, Frank Fairleigh

Love reckons hours for months, and days for years;
And every little absence is an age.
John Dryden, Amphitryon

Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned,
Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.
William Congreve, The Mourning Bride

Romantic love, in pornography as in life, is the mythic celebration of female negation. For a woman, love is defined as her willingness to submit to her own annihilation…. The proof of love is that she is willing to be destroyed by the one whom she loves, for his sake. For the woman, love is always self-sacrifice, the sacrifice of identity, will, and bodily integrity, in order to fulfill and redeem the masculinity of her lover.
Andrea Dworkin

If only the strength of the love that people feel when it is reciprocated could be as intense and obsessive as the love we feel when it is not; then marriages would be truly made in heaven.
Ben Elton

Well, love is insanity. The ancient Greeks knew that. It is the taking over of a rational and lucid mind by delusion and self-destruction. You lose yourself, you have no power over yourself, you can't even think straight.
Marilyn French

Love is often nothing but a favorable exchange between two people who get the most of what they can expect, considering their value on the personality market.
Erich Fromm

Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
from all let this be heard.
Some does it with a bitter look,
some with a flattering word.
The coward does it with a kiss
the brave man with the sword
Oscar Wilde, Ballad of Reading Gaol

At any rate, let us love for a while, for a year or so, you and me. That's a form of divine drunkenness that we can all try.
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but
from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions
May wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
As the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you
So shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth
So is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses
Your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and
Shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

I know that somewhere in the Universe exists my perfect soulmate
but looking for her is much more difficult than just staying at home and ordering another pizza.
Alf Whit

If love is the answer, could you please rephrase the question?
Lily Tomlin

If the universe has any purpose more important then topping a woman you love and making a baby with her hearty help, I have never heard of it.
Lazarus Long

If you have it [love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.
Sir James M. Barrie

It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.
Mother Teresa

Love built on beauty, soon as beauty, dies.
John Donne

Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
Franklin P. Jones

Love is also like a coconut which is good while it is fresh, but you have to spit it out when the juice is gone, what’s left tastes bitter.
Bertolt Brecht

Madame, it is an old word and each one takes it new and wears it out himself. It is a word that fills with meaning as a bladder with air and the meaning goes out of it as quickly. It may be punctured as a bladder is punctured and patched and blown up again and if you have not had it it does not exist for you. All people talk of it, but those who have had it are marked by it, and I would not wish to speak of it further since of all things it is the most ridiculous to talk of and only fools go through it many times.
Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon, ch. 11

He who wants to do good, knocks at the gate; he who loves finds the gates open.
Rabindranath Tagore, Thakur

True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about but few have seen.
Unknown

Love is an obsessive delusion that is cured by marriage.
Dr. Karl Bowman

Love is an ocean of emotions entirely surrounded by expenses.
Lord Dewar

Love is being stupid together.
Paul Valery

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not bridge, no wall that enough love will not throw down, no sin that enough love will not redeem... It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough, you could be the happiest and most powerful being in the world...
Emmet Fox

Love is the delusion that one woman differs from another.
H. L. Mencken

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it…. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Erica Jong

Love (understood as the desire of good for another) is in fact so unnatural a phenomenon that it can scarcely repeat itself, the soul being unable to become virgin again and not having energy enough to cast itself out again into the ocean of another's soul.
James Joyce, Notes to the play Exiles

A man has only one escape from his old self: to see a different self-in the mirror of some woman's eyes.
Clare Boothe Luce,

The spiritualization of sensuality is called love: it is a great triumph over Christianity.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols, "Morality as Anti-Nature," aph. 3

Love is the cheapest of religions.
Cesare Pavese, The Burning Brand: Diaries 1935-1950 (1952; tr. 1961), entry for 21 Dec. 1939.

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 comma bacillus.
Marcel Proust, Remembrance of Things Past, vol. 2, "Swann's Way: Swann in Love"

Love: Two minds without a single thought.
Philip Barry

Many people when they fall in love look for a little haven of refuge from the world, where they can be sure of being admired when they are not admirable, and praised when they are not praiseworthy.
Bertrand Russell

I regard as a mortal sin not only the lying of the senses in matters of love, but also the illusion which the senses seek to create where love is only partial. I say, I believe, that one must love with all of one's being, or else live, come what may, a life of complete chastity.
George Sand

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs,
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes,
Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears.
What is it else? A madness most discreet,
A choking gall and a preserving sweet.
William Shakespeare

Men have died from time to time, and worms have eaten them, but not for love.
William Shakespeare, Rosalind, in As You Like It, act 4, sc. 1.

The fickleness of the women I love is only equalled by the infernal constancy of the women who love me.
George Bernard Shaw

Love is free; to promise for ever to love the same woman is not less absurd than to promise to believe the same creed; such a vow in both cases excludes us from all inquiry.
Percy Bysshe Shelley

When desire, having rejected reason and overpowered judgment which leads to right, is set in the direction of the pleasure which beauty can inspire, and when again under the influence of its kindred desires it is moved with violent motion towards the beauty of corporeal forms, it acquires a surname from this very violent motion, and is called love.
Socrates, Quoted in: Plato, Phaedrus.

For it is the suffering flesh, it is suffering, it is death, that lovers perpetuate upon the earth. Love is at once the brother, son, and father of death, which is its sister, mother, and daughter. And thus it is that in the depth of love there is a depth of eternal despair, out of which springs hope and consolation.
Miguel de Unamuno

Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.
Leo Tolstoy

I've only been in love with a beer bottle and a mirror.
Sid Vicious

If somebody says, "I love you," to me, I feel as though I had a pistol pointed at my head. What can anybody reply under such conditions but that which the pistol-holder requires? "I love you, too."
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Wampeters, Foma and Granfallons, "Address at Dedication of Wheaton College Library, 1973" (1974).

Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet.
Andy Warhol

When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.
Oscar Wilde, Lord Henry, in The Picture of Dorian Gray, ch. 4 (1891). The same words reappeared spoken by Lord Illingworth in A Woman of No Importance, act 3.

I do not think that what is called Love at first sight is so great an absurdity as it is sometimes imagined to be. We generally make up our minds beforehand to the sort of person we should like, grave or gay, black, brown, or fair; with golden tresses or raven locks;-and when we meet with a complete example of the qualities we admire, the bargain is soon struck.
William Hazlitt

Mine ear is much enamoured of thy note;
So is mine eye enthrallèd to thy shape;
And thy fair virtue's force perforce doth move me
On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.
William Shakespeare

One advantage of marriage
It seems to me
Is that when you fall out of love with him
Or he falls out of love with you
It keeps you together until maybe you fall in again.
Judith Viorst

One good thing about internet dating: you're guaranteed to click with whomever you meet.
Mongo

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.
Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Unknown

Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Goncourt

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
John Lennon

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
Barbara DeAngelis

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
Jimi Hendrix

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Once I dropped a tear in the ocean. When I find it is when I'll stop loving you.
Anonymous

Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.
Sydney Smith

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Lao-Tzu

Pure love and suspicion cannot dwell together: at the door where the latter enters, the former makes its exit.
Alexandre Dumas

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

To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.
Karen Sunde

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire.
La Rochefoucauld

Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great.
Comte DeBussy-Rabutin

"We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry, or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck . . . But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.
Ellen Goodman

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
James Baldwin

A relationship is like a rose,
How long it lasts, no one knows;
Love can erase an awful past,
Love can be yours, you'll see at last;
To feel that love, it makes you sigh,
To have it leave, you'd rather die;
You hope you've found that special rose,
Cause you love and care for the one you chose.
Rob Cella

Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands, and crystal brooks,
With silken lines, and silver hooks.
John Donne

... and the only measure of your worth and your deeds will be the love you leave behind when you're gone.
Fred Small, Everything Possible

The magic of the first love is the ignorance that it can never end.
Disraeli

Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.
Leo Buscaglia

Love has its own time, its own season, and its own reasons from coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it or reason it into staying. You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to you.
Kent Nerburn

Love enables you to put your deepest feelings and fears in the palm of your partner's hand, knowing they will be handled with care.
Carl S. Avery

To love at all is to be vulnerable.
C.S. Lewis

Love is not something you feel. It's something you do.
David Wilkerson

The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.
J. Krishnamurti

...so in love the heart surrenders itself entirely to the one being known how to touch it. That being is not selected but recognized and obeyed.
George Santayana

No love, no friendship, can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever.
Francois Mocuriac

There is no distance too great between friends, for love gives wings to the heart.
Unknown

Where there is love there is life.
Unknown

Love doesn't make the world go round, it makes the ride worthwhile.
F.P. Jones

All our young lives we search for someone to love, someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope, all the while wondering if somewhere and somehow there is someone searching for us.
The Wonder Years

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
Barbara DeAngelis

Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.
Kahlil Gibran

Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.
D.H.Lawrence

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Henry Van Dyke

When we come to the last moment of this lifetime, and we look back across it, the only thing that's going to matter is "What was the quality of our love?"
Richard Bach

Love expects no reward. Love knows no fear. Love Divine gives - does not demand. Love thinks no evil; imputes no motive. To Love is to share and serve.

Love is but another name for that inscrutable presence by which the soul is connected with humanity.
William Simms

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!
Lucy Van Pelt (in Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz)

It's not that chocolates are a substitute for love. Love is a substitute for chocolate. Chocolate is, let's face it, far more reliable than a man.
Miranda Ingram

Our hours in love have wings; in absence, crutches.
Colley Cibber

He who is in love with himself has at least this advantage he won't encounter many rivals.
George C. Lichtenberg

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

What a man takes in by contemplation, that he pours out in love.
Meister Eckhart

Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and, in this, hasn't changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.
John Berger

Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.
Joseph Addison

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.
Turkish Proverb

For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof; the work for which all other work is but preparation

Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
