People talk about love as it is something that you could give, like an armful of flowers.
And a lot of people give love like that –
just dump it down on top of you,
a useless strong-scented burden.
~ Anne Morrow Lindberg
Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
~ Carl Jung
Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That hills and valleys, dales and fields,
Woods, or steepy mountain yields.
~ Christopher Marlowe
I always wanted to be in love, always. It’s like being a tuning fork.
~ Edna O’Brien
I go where I love and where I am loved.
Whoever has loved knows all that life contains of sorrow and of joy.
~ George Sand.
Love has its own instinct. It knows how to find the road to the heart just as the weakest insect moves towards its flower by an irresistible which will fear nothing.
– Honore De Balzac.
There isn’t any formula or method. You learn to love by loving- by paying attention and doing what one thereby discovers has to be done.
~ Aldous Huxley
There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved.
~ George Sand
The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it… you and you alone make me feel that I am alive…. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
All that you are, all that I owe to you, justifies my love, and nothing, not even you.
~Marquis de Lafayette
Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another’s personhood.
Love is like a violin. The music may stop now and then, but the strings remain forever.
