Thoughtful Words on Love

In light of my last post where I lamented my lack of romantic love, I discovered some mighty interesting words:


You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover’s arms can only come later when you’re sure they won’t laugh if you trip.  ~Jonathan Carroll, “Outside the Dog Museum”

Ah me! love can not be cured by herbs.  ~Ovid

When love is not madness, it is not love.  ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Let your love be like the misty rains, coming softly, but flooding the river.  ~Malagasy Proverb

Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.  ~Mark Overby

Love is a symbol of eternity.  It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.  ~Author Unknown

Love is a sweet tyranny, because the lover endureth his torments willingly.  ~Proverb

Love one another and you will be happy.  It’s as simple and as difficult as that.  ~Michael Leunig

To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness.  ~Robert Brault

If I love you, what business is it of yours?               ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.  ~Dr. Seuss

 

Love unlocks doors and opens windows that weren’t even there before.  ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966

Love is a game that two can play and both win.  ~Eva Gabor

We don’t believe in rheumatism and true love until after the first attack.  ~Marie Ebner Von Eschenbach, Aphorism

True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights.  If you hear bells, get your ears checked.  ~Erich Segal

Love in action is a harsh and dreadful thing compared with love in dreams.  ~Fyodor Dostoevski

You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving.  ~Author Unknown

I learned the real meaning of love.  Love is absolute loyalty.  People fade, looks fade, but loyalty never fades.  You can depend so much on certain people, you can set your watch by them.  And that’s love, even if it doesn’t seem very exciting.  ~Sylvester Stallone

A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.  ~George Jean Nathan

Ah! a blessing beyond all fate                                    
My sole mate ’tis my soul mate.
~Pixie Foudre

Love means nothing in tennis, but it’s everything in life.  ~Author Unknown

We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love.  It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.                      ~W. Somerset Maugham

 

While God waits for His temple to be built of love, men bring stones.  ~Rabindranath Tagore

You learn to like someone when you find out what makes them laugh, but you can never truly love someone until you find out what makes them cry.  ~Author Unknown

Come live in my heart and pay no rent.  ~Samuel Lover

We picture love as heart-shaped because we do not know the shape of the soul.  ~Robert Brault
