Love is the crowning grace of humanity, the holiest right of the soul, the golden link which binds us to duty and truth, the redeeming principle that chiefly reconciles the heart to life, and is prophetic of eternal good.
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
We love because it’s the only true adventure.
True, Adventure The richest love is that which submits to the arbitration of time.

Love is when you meet someone who tells you something new about yourself.
Only do what your heart tells you.
Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility; for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible.
Thomas a Kempis
Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames.
Marriage, Truth, Romantic Only divine love bestows the keys of knowledge.

I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty… you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.
J. D. Salinger
Loving others always costs us something and requires effort. And you have to decide to do it on purpose. You can’t wait for a feeling to motivate you.
We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.
Love is a gross exaggeration of the difference between one person and everybody else.
George Bernard Shaw
The cure for all the ills and wrongs, the cares, the sorrows, and the crimes of humanity, all lie in the one word ‘love’. It is the divine vitality that everywhere produces and restores life.
Lydia M. Child
Love is being stupid together.
Love is the only reality and it is not a mere sentiment. It is the ultimate truth that lies at the heart of creation.
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Love means not ever having to say you’re sorry.
Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do.
When love is not madness, it is not love.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.
Francis of Assisi
Let no one who loves be unhappy, even love unreturned has its rainbow.
James M. Barrie
Being in love is the only transcendent experience.
When you’re in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.
Natalie Clifford Barney
Life is like an onion. You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.
Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
