It was the first time I was ever in love, and I learned a lot. Before that I'd never even thought about killing myself.
Selfishness is one of the qualities apt to inspire love.
Love does not alter the beloved, it alters itself.
To fear love is to fear life, and those whose fear life are already three parts dead...
Speak low, if you speak love.
We loved with a love that was more than love.
This is the true measure of love, When we believe that we alone can love, That no one could ever have loved so before us, And that no one will ever love in the same way after us.
I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
I learn to love it more and more.
The heart will turn to a prune if love is always by the numbers. How will you know if someone really loves you if they only meet your expectations and not your needs?
You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
Just when you think it can't get any worse, it can. And just when you think it can't get any better, it can.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.
One who has loved truly can never lose entirely.
I am never long, even in the society of her I love, without yearning for the company of my lamp and my library.
The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye
Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
To fall in love you have to be in the state of mind for it to take, like a disease.
Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
