Love is not love until love's vulnerable.

Nature never did betray the heart that loved her.
One does not fall in love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.
I shall the effect of this good lesson keeps as watchman to my heart.
Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don't let them scare you unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.
There is no such uncertainty as a sure thing.
You can fire your secretary, divorce your spouse, abandon your children. But they remain your co-authors forever.
Only in relationship can you know yourself, not in abstraction and certainly not in isolation. The movement of behavior is the sure guide to yourself. It's the mirror of your consciousness: this mirror will reveal its content, the images, the attachments, the fears, the loneliness, the joys and sorrow. Poverty lies in running away from this, either in its sublimations or its identities.
The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that's also a hypocrite!
Feelings are like chemicals, the more you analyze them the worse they smell.
The artist is the opposite of the politically minded individual, the opposite of the reformer, the opposite of the idealist. The artist does not tinker with the universe; he recreates it out of his own experience and understanding of life.
The opposite of love is not hate, the opposite of love is ignorance.
Bear and endure: This sorrow will one day prove to be for your good.
No evil dooms us hopelessly except the evil we love, and desire to continue in, and make no effort to escape from.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
There is a great man who makes every man feel small. But the real great man is the man who makes every man feel great.
The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results.
Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and among all, never... never forget it.
My one regret in life is that I'm not someone else.
I often regret that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.
It's better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.
The man who insists upon seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides. Accept life, and you must accept regret.
Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.
The consuming desire of most human beings is deliberately to plant their whole life in the hands of some other person. I would describe this method of searching for happiness as immature. Development of character consists solely in moving toward self-sufficiency.
Gray hair is a sign of age, not of wisdom.
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.
Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.
Those who commence deliberately. They plod on. They stick to it. They persevere and finally reap their rewards.
The best reformers the world has ever seen are those who commence on themselves.
The art of simplicity is a puzzle of complexity.
Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle.
Nationalism is our form of incest, is our idolatry, is our insanity. Patriotism is its cult. It should hardly be necessary to say, that by patriotism I mean that attitude which puts the own nation above humanity, above the principles of truth and justice; not the loving interest in one's own nation, which is the concern with the nation's spiritual as much as with its material welfare --never with its power over other nations. Just as love for one individual which excludes the love for others is not love, love for one's country which is not part of one's love for humanity is not love, but idolatrous worship.
We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving
Love is a chain of love as nature is a chain of life.
Love conquers all; let us surrender to Love.
That is the true season of love; when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved as much before, and that no one will ever love in the same way again.
To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.
You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.
There is no need to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
When we talk about understanding, surely it takes place only when the mind listens completely -- the mind being your heart, your nerves, your ears- when you give your whole attention to it.
The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transform.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Drugs are reality's legal loopholes.
Abstainer. A weak man who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure.
There comes a time in the seeker's life when he discovers that he is at once the lover and the beloved. The aspiring soul which he embodies is the lover in him. And the transcendental Self which he reveals from within is his Beloved.
The greater the difficulty, the greater the glory.
Two souls with but a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one.
The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.
In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom!
