What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things.

It is not love that should be depicted as blind, but self-love.
There is only one happiness in life -- to love and to be loved.
The opposite of love is not hate, the opposite of love is ignorance.
To make us love our country, our country ought to be lovely.
Love talked about is easily turned aside, but love demonstrated is irresistible.
If love means that one person absorbs the other, then no real relationship exists any more. Love evaporates; there is nothing left to love. The integrity of self is gone.
We really have to understand the person we want to love. If our love is only a will to possess, it is not love. If we only think of ourselves, if we know only our own needs and ignore the needs of the other person, we cannot love.
To love and be loved is the great happiness of existence.
We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving
Love conquers all; let us surrender to Love.
Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.
It is possible to give without loving, but it is impossible to love without giving.
Love means the body, the soul, the life, the entire being. We feel love as we feel the warmth of our blood, we breathe love as we breathe air, we hold it in ourselves as we hold our thoughts. Nothing more exists for us.
The way of peace is the way of love. Love is the greatest power on earth. It conquers all things.
Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live; Not where I love, but where I am, I die.
Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love's tragedies.
Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.
Where there is no extravagance there is no love, and where there is no love there is no understanding.
There is a French saying: Love is the dawn of marriage, and marriage is the sunset of love.
Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.
Age does not protect you from love but love to some extent protects you from age.
It is easier to love humanity as a whole than to love one's neighbor.
We cease loving ourselves if no one loves us.
If you wish to be loved; Love!
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.
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.
Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine.
Love is not love until love's vulnerable.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
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.
Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
They do not love that do not show their love. The course of true love never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.
The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves. We cannot force love.
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.
One does not fall in love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.
To love one person with a private love is poor and miserable: to love all is glorious.
In jealousy there is more of self-love than love.
Love is life's end, but never ending. Love is life's wealth, never spent, but ever spending. Love's life's reward, rewarded in rewarding.
Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.
For what is love itself, for the one we love best? An enfolding of immeasurable cares which yet are better than any joys outside our love.
It is best to love wisely, no doubt: but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves.
On the last analysis, then, love is life. Love never faileth and life never faileth so long as there is love.
Love is the true means by which the world is enjoyed: our love to others, and others love to us.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.
I know I am but summer to your heart, and not the full four seasons of the year.
