I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.
It is impossible to love and be wise.
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell.
Romance is built on illusion, and when we love someone, we love the illusion they have created for us
Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Love is like a fruit. It may look good, but you shouldn't bite in it until it's ripe.
If you love something, turn it loose. If it doesn't come back, kill it!
Love is seeing without eyes, hearing without ears; hatred is nothing.
Love affairs have always greatly interested me, but I do not greatly care for them in books or moving pictures. In a love affair, I wish to be the hero, with no audience present

A man is in love when something in his head, something in his and chest and something in his pants react to a certain woman.
The opposite of love is not hate, the opposite of love is ignorance.
Kindness is loving people more than they deserve.
Love doesn't make the world go round.
Love is what makes the ride wortwhile
Love cures people; both the ones who give it, and the ones who receive it.
Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside desperate to get out.
Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.
Absence extinguishes small passions and increases great ones, as the wind blows out a candle, and fans a bonfire.
Flirting is the gentle art of making a man feel pleased with himself
My advice to you is to get married. If you find a good wife, you'll be happy;
if not, you'll become a philosopher.
No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth.
The essence of true friendship is to make allowances for another's little lapses
It is best to love wisely, no doubt; but to love foolishly is better than not to be
able to love at all.
Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience
Before you find your handsome prince, you have to kiss a lot of frogs.
Hearts are often broken when words are unspoken.
If there is anything better than being loved, it's loving.
If we deny love that is given to us, if we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater.
Love will make you forget time, and time will make you forget love.
When falling in love, some lose their head, others lose their heart.
To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive, which is wrapped in thoughtfulness and tied with love.
Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own home. Give love to your children, to a wife or husband, to a next-door neighbor.
In his younger days a man dreams of possessing the heart of the woman whom he loves; later, the feeling that he possesses the heart of a woman may be enough to make him fall in love with her.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
True love is like a ghost; everyone talks of it, few have seen it.
Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.
The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.
Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator,
but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but looking outward in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
But true love is a durable fire,
In the mind ever burning,
Never sick, never old, never dead,
From itself never turning.
Sir Walter Raleigh
Real love stories never have endings.
The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, While loving someone deeply gives you courage.
When I was a young man,I vowed never to marry until I found the ideal woman.
Well, I found her. But, alas, she was waiting for the ideal man.
Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime, and never let go till we're gone.
Titanic Theme, "My Heart Will Go On"
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.
You may wish to be loving-- you may even try with all your might-but your love will never be pure unless you are free from resentment. When we are free from resentment, loving is effortless. When we have to try hard to love, this is generally a sign that we are repressing our resentments.
John Gray (Men, Women and Relationships)
Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
Love can transpose to form and dignity.
Love looks not with the eye, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
Love vanquishes time. To lovers, a moment can be eternity, eternity can be the tick of a clock. Across the barriers of time and the ultimate destiny, love persists, for the home of the beloved, absent or present, is always in the mind and heart. Absence does not diminish love.
Mary Parrish (MaCalls Magazine)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
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.
Though we may think we know each other well, when we neglect feelings in a relationship, we neglect the deepest and most intimate part of ourselves ... sharing feelings leads us to great closeness because feelings are very personal, the most intimate part of us. The sharing of a deep feeling is the greatest gift a human being can give to another.
Fr. Chuck Gallagher
Inside the heart of each and every one of us there is a longing to be understood by someone who really cares. When a person is understood, he or she can put up with almost anything in the world.
Rev Ed Hird
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
