Love is like pi -- natural, irrational, and very important.

Come live with me, and be my love, and we will all the pleasures prove.
Teach only love for that is what you are.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Real love stories never have endings.
Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough.
Someday, after mastering winds, waves, tides and gravity, we shall harness the energy of love; and for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
Love is a friendship set to music.
Gravitation can not be held responsible for people falling in love
You can't blame gravity for falling in love.
We love because it's the only true adventure.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
Why does a woman work ten years to change a man's habits and then complain that he's not the man she married?
I've been married so long, I am on my third bottle of Tabasco sauce.
Our marriage is like anybody's marriage, It goes through ups and downs. It's a little garden that you have to tend all the time. When we're home, it's not like we walk around all dolled up going, We are celebrities! We are famous! I change diapers. I clean up dog doo.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back into the same box.
If we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
The less we deserve good fortune, the more we hope for it.
Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.
Shadow owes its birth to light.
Where there is much light, the shadow is deep.
Pursuit and seduction are the essence of sexuality. It's part of the sizzle.
The perplexity of life arises from there being too many interesting things in it for us to be interested properly in any of them.
The world is in balance <...>. To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
The last temptation is the greatest treason: To do the right deed for the wrong reason.
The fates lead the willing, and drag the unwilling.
Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
Art is science made clear.
So many worlds, so much to do, so little done, such things to be.
In art as in love, instinct is enough.
The arts are not just instantaneous pleasure -- if you don't like it, the artist is wrong. I belong to the generation which says if you don't like it, you don't understand and you ought to find out.
Art is so wonderfully irrational, exuberantly pointless, but necessary all the same. Pointless and yet necessary, that's hard for a puritan to understand.
In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.
It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.
On stage I make love to twenty five thousand people; and then I go home alone.
All men are lonely. But sometimes it seems to me that we Americans are the loneliest of all. Our hunger for foreign places and new ways has been with us almost like a national disease. Our literature is stamped with a quality of longing and unrest, and our writers have been great wanderers.
In our extreme youth, in our most humiliating sorrow, we think we are alone. When we are older we find that others have suffered too.
The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
I want to put a ding in the universe.
The greatest things are accomplished by individual people, not by committees or companies.
Out of the strain of doing and into the peace of the done.
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
The most difficult character in comedy is that of the fool, and he must be no simpleton that plays that part.
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
The primary distinction of the artist is that he must actively cultivate that state which most men, necessarily, must avoid: the state of being alone.
What is art but a way of seeing?
Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.
