Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.

Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.
Love is a better teacher than duty.
You can't blame gravity for falling in love.
A supreme love, a motive that gives a sublime rhythm to a woman's life, and exalts habit into partnership with the soul's highest needs, is not to be had where and how she wills.
I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same kind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of literature and speech and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear.
Love is most nearly itself when here and now cease to matter.
If only the strength of the love that people feel when it is reciprocated could be as intense and obsessive as the love we feel when it is not; then marriages would be truly made in heaven.
Love and you shall be loved. All love is mathematically just, as much as the two sides of an algebraic equation.
I don't want to live -- I want to love first, and live incidentally.
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If you could only love enough, you could be the most powerful person in the world.
Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.
He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals.
We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love, never so forlornly unhappy as when we have lost our love object or its love.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
Romantic love, in pornography as in life, is the mythic celebration of female negation. For a woman, love is defined as her willingness to submit to her own annihilation. The proof of love is that she is willing to be destroyed by the one whom she loves, for his sake. For the woman, love is always self-sacrifice, the sacrifice of identity, will, and bodily integrity, in order to fulfill and redeem the masculinity of her lover.
To love one child and to love all children, whether living or dead --somewhere these two loves come together. To love a no-good but humble punk and to love an honest man who believes himself to be an honest man --somewhere these, too, come together.
It was the men I deceived the most that I loved the most.
I love you, not for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
Love is shown in your deeds, not in your words.

A loving heart is the truest wisdom.
I argue thee that love is life. And life hath immortality.
We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence, and its only end.
The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can never end.
You will find, as you look back upon your life, that the moments when you really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
To love abundantly is to live abundantly, and to love forever is to live forever.
Love works a different way in different minds, the fool it enlightens and the wise it blinds.
Love is not in our choice but in our fate.
Love is the extra effort we make in our dealings with those whom we do not like and once you understand that, you understand all. This idea that love overtakes you is nonsense. This is but a polite manifestation of sex. To love another you have to undertake some fragment of their destiny.
Two persons love in one another the future good which they aid one another to unfold.
Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.
One would always want to think of oneself as being on the side of love, ready to recognize it and wish it well --but, when confronted with it in others, one so often resented it, questioned its true nature, secretly dismissed the particular instance as folly or promiscuity. Was it merely jealousy, or a reluctance to admit so noble and enviable a sentiment in anyone but oneself?
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
Madame, it is an old word and each one takes it new and wears it out himself. It is a word that fills with meaning as a bladder with air and the meaning goes out of it as quickly. It may be punctured as a bladder is punctured and patched and blown up again and if you have not had it does not exist for you. All people talk of it, but those who have had it are marked by it, and I would not wish to speak of it further since of all things it is the most ridiculous to talk of and only fools go through it many times.
Only the really plain people know about love --the very fascinating ones try so hard to create an impression that they very soon exhaust their talents.
Love is like a fruit. It may look good, but you shouldn't bite in it until it's ripe.
Love is stronger than violence.
Love is only the game that is not called on account of darkness.
Love is a conflict between reflexes and reflections.
Love is the master key which opens the gates of happiness.
Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
Subdue your passion or it will subdue you.
If you love something let it go free. If it doesn't come back, you never had it. If it comes back, love it forever.
Love is a given, hatred is acquired.
If a woman doesn't chase a man a little, she doesn't love him.
Lovers are fools, but Nature makes them so.
Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her [Americas] heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will recommend the general cause, by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself, beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force. She might become the dictatress of the world: she would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit.
The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves. We cannot force love.
Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love.
It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.
If I love you, what business is it of yours?
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.
Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.
The best way to know God is to love many things.
The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic that to love others.
Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Love is not blind -- it sees more, not less. But because it sees more, it is willing to see less.
God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, I love you.
Love does not just sit there, like a stone; it had to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new.
Love is a gift from God, and as we obey His laws and genuinely learn to serve others, we develop God's love in our lives. Love of God is the means of unlocking divine powers which help us to live worthily and to overcome the world.
People need loving the most when they deserve it the least.
My life is an indivisible whole, and all my attitudes run into one another; and they all have their rise in my insatiable love for mankind.
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.
For true success ask yourself these four questions: Why? Why not? Why not me? Why not now?
Not all of us have to possess earthshaking talent. Just common sense and love will do.
The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much.
If you have it [Love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.
If it is your time, love will track you down like a cruise missile.
To try to write love is to confront the muck of language: that region of hysteria where language is both too much and too little, excessive and impoverished.
The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're still alive.
Naturally, love's the most distant possibility.
Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough.
When we understand that man is the only animal who must create meaning, who must open a wedge into neutral nature, we already understand the essence of love. Love is the problem of an animal who must find life, create a dialogue with nature in order to experience his own being.
Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.
Love ceases to be a pleasure, when it ceases to be a secret.
Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit; it is its own fruit, its own enjoyment. I love because I love; I love in order that I may love.
Let no one believe that he has received the divine kiss, if he knows the truth without loving it or loves it without understanding it. But blessed is that kiss whereby not only is God recognized but also the Father is loved; for there is never full knowledge without perfect love.
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment. [Philippians 1:9]

Love is the beauty of the soul.

Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
If love is shelter, I'm going to walk in the rain.
Real love stories never have endings.
Do you want to know a good way to fall in love? Just associate with all your pleasant experiences with someone, and disassociate from all the unpleasant ones.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.

A proof that experience is of no use, is that the end of one love does not prevent us from beginning another.
Love alone can unite living beings so as to complete and fulfill them... for it alone joins them by what is deepest in themselves. All we need is to imagine our ability to love developing until it embraces the totality of men and the earth.

Many a man has fallen in love with a girl in light so dim he would not have chosen a suit by it.
The cure for all the ills and wrongs, the cares, the sorrows, and the crimes of humanity, all lie in that one word Love. It is the divine vitality that everywhere produces and restores life.
Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness, speak cheering words while their ears can hear, and while their hearts can be thrilled and made happier by them. George
Every day I live I am more convinced that the waste of life lies in the love we have not given, the powers we have not used, the selfish prudence that will risk nothing and which, shirking pain, misses happiness as well.
Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old.

True love is the parent of humility.
Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
When you love someone all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
If I place love above everything, it is because for me it is the most desperate, the most despairing state of affairs imaginable.
Real love is a pilgrimage. It happens when there is no strategy, but it is very rare because most people are strategists.
Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.
