In jealousy there is more of self-love than love.

Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again -- this is the brave and happy life.
Who is wise in love, love most, say least.
Learn to reject friendship, or rather the dream of friendship. To want friendship is a great fault. Friendship ought to be a gratuitous joy, like the joys afforded by art, or life (like aesthetic joys). I must refuse it in order to be worthy to receive it
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know.
The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
Had we not loved ourselves at all, we could never have been obliged to love anything. So that self-love is the basis of all 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.
Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be attained only by someone who is detached.
