There exists, between people in love, a kind of capital held by each. This is not just a stock of affects or pleasure, but also the possibility of playing double or quits with the share you hold in the other's heart.
Pity the selfishness of lovers: it is brief, a forlorn hope; it is impossible.
When Death to either shall come -- I pray it be first to me.
A man can go from being a lover to being a stranger in three moves flat but a woman under the guise of friendship will engage in acts of duplicity which come to light very much later. There are different species of self-justification.
Never the time and the place and the loved one all together!
One seeks to make the loved one entirely happy, or, if that cannot be, entirely wretched.
Lovers may be -- and indeed generally are -- enemies, but they never can be friends, because there must always be a spice of jealousy and a something of Self in all their speculations.
One who has not only the four S's, which are required in every good lover, but even the whole alphabet; as for example... Agreeable, Bountiful, Constant, Dutiful, Easy, Faithful, Gallant, Honorable, Ingenious, Kind, Loyal, Mild, Noble, Officious, Prudent, Quiet, Rich, Secret, True, Valiant, Wise; the X indeed, is too harsh a letter to agree with him, but he is Young and Zealous.
When a man and a woman have an overwhelming passion for each other, it seems to me, in spite of such obstacles dividing them as parents or husband, that they belong to each other in the name of Nature, and are lovers by Divine right, in spite of human convention or the laws.
There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another. This should be made clear to all who contemplate such a union. The avoidance of this pain is the beginning of wisdom, for it is strong enough to contaminate the rest of our lives.
Busy old fool, unruly Sun, why dost thou thus through windows and through curtains call on us? Must to thy motions lovers seasons run?
A lover, when he is admitted to cards, ought to be solemnly silent, and observe the motions of his mistress. He must laugh when she laughs, sigh when she sighs. In short, he should be the shadow of her mind. A lady, in the presence of her lover, should never want a looking-glass; as a beau, in the presence of his looking-glass, never wants a mistress.
Lovers who love truly do not write down their happiness.
A lover without indiscretion is no lover at all. Circumspection and devotion are a contradiction in terms.
The more one loves a mistress, the more one is ready to hate her.
My God, these folks don't know how to love -- that's why they love so easily.
Queen Guenever, for whom I make here a little mention, that while she lived she was a true lover, and therefore she had a good end.
I would not miss your face, your neck, your hands, your limbs, your bosom and certain other of your charms. Indeed, not to become boring by naming them all, I could do without you, Chloe, altogether.
These two imparadised in one another's arms, the happier Eden, shall enjoy their fill of bliss on bliss.
Every man needs two women, a quiet home-maker, and a thrilling nymph.
Scratch a lover, and find a foe.
An orange on the table, your dress on the rug, and you in my bed, sweet present of the present, cool of night, warmth of my life.
Between lovers a little confession is a dangerous thing.
It is easier to keep half a dozen lovers guessing than to keep one lover after he has stopped guessing.
Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety. Other women cloy the appetites they feed, but she makes hungry where most she satisfies.
We that are true lovers run into strange capers.
No one worth possessing can be quite possessed.
You are my lover and I am your mistress and kingdoms and empires and governments have tottered and succumbed before now to that mighty combination.
The one who loves least controls the relationship.
There's nothing in the world like the devotion of a married woman. It's a thing no married man knows anything about.
Mistresses are like books; if you pore upon them too much, they doze you and make you unfit for company; but if used discreetly, you are the fitter for conversation by em.
If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you'll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren't even giving to yourself.
Resolve to be thyself: and know, that he who finds himself, loses his misery.
The best way to forget ones self is to look at the world with attention and love.
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and bring joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
Our first and last love is... self-love.
Don't worry about growing older or pleasing others. Please yourself.
Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.
Self-love for ever creeps out, like a snake, to sting anything which happens to stumble upon it.
How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something, but to be someone.
Monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey.
I'd rather be able to face myself in the bathroom mirror than be rich and famous.
The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.
A low self-love in the parent desires that his child should repeat his character and fortune.
Do not wish to be anything except what you are.
He who falls in love with himself will have no rivals.
Self-love exaggerates our faults as well as our virtues.
If we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves.
There is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!
Self-love is often rather arrogant than blind; it does not hide our faults from ourselves, but persuades us that they escape the notice of others.
Self-love depressed becomes self-loathing.
Be that self which one truly is.
The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.
Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.
You will always have to live with yourself, and it is to your best interest to see that you have good company -- a clean, pure, straight, honest, upright, generous, magnanimous companion.
People who do not love themselves can adore others, because adoration is making someone else big and ourselves small. They can desire others, because desire comes out of a sense of inner incompleteness, which demands to be filled. But they can not love others, because love is an affirmation of the living growing being in all of us. If you don't have it, you can't give it.
A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.
I am a big believer in the mirror test. All that matters is if you can look in the mirror and honestly tell the person you see there, that you've done your best.
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.
Learn what you are and be such.
Self-love seems so often unrequited.
Above the cloud with its shadow is the star with its light. Above all things reverence thyself.
Self-love, is not so vile a sin as self-neglecting.
Whatever you are from nature, keep to it; never desert your own line of talent. Be what nature intended you for, and you will succeed; be anything else, and you will be ten thousand times worse than nothing.
When you feel good about yourself, others will feel good about you, too.
Know that you are your greatest enemy, but also your greatest friend.
If only I had a little humility, I'd be perfect.
To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.
Know the self to be sitting in the chariot, the body to be the chariot, the intellect the charioteer, and the mind the reins.
Self-love is the instrument of our preservation.
It is not love that should be depicted as blind, but self-love.
There's only one me, and I'm stuck with him.
I dote on myself, there is that lot of me and all so luscious.
Practice being at home with yourself, as you step out to be with others.
The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.
I do not love you
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
that this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
Write, for instance: "The night is full of stars,
and the stars, blue, shiver in the distance."
The night wind whirls in the sky and sings.
I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.
On nights like this, I held her in my arms.
I kissed her so many times under the infinite sky.
She loved me, sometimes I loved her.
How could I not have loved her large, still eyes?
I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
To think I don't have her. To feel that I've lost her.
To hear the immense night, more immense without her.
And the poem falls to the soul as dew to grass.
What does it matter that my love couldn't keep her.
The night is full of stars and she is not with me.
That's all. Far away, someone sings. Far away.
My soul is lost without her.
As if to bring her near, my eyes search for her.
My heart searches for her and she is not with me.
The same night that whitens the same trees.
We, we who were, we are the same no longer.
I no longer love her, true, but how much I loved her.
My voice searched the wind to touch her ear.
Someone else's. She will be someone else's. As she once
belonged to my kisses.
Her voice, her light body. Her infinite eyes.
I no longer love her, true, but perhaps I love her.
Love is so short and oblivion so long.
Because on nights like this I held her in my arms,
my soul is lost without her.
Although this may be the last pain she causes me,
and this may be the last poem I write for her.
We have lost even this twilight.
No one saw us this evening hand in hand
while the blue night dropped on the world.
I have seen from my window
the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops.
Sometimes a piece of sun
burned like a coin in my hand.
I remembered you with my soul clenched
in that sadness of mine that you know.
Where were you then?
Who else was there?
Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly
when I am sad and feel you are far away?
The book fell that always closed at twilight
and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at my feet.
Always, always you recede through the evenings
toward the twilight erasing statues.
Any woman who thinks the way to a man's heart is through his stomach is aiming about 10 inches too high.
The only thing bigger than God`s great universe is man`s ego.
It does say if you don[[#146]]t love your fellow Christians you're not one in the big book.
Love to me is a feeling, to have universal love you have to always feel love no matter what.
Love poems are always cliche to me but not to the person it[[#146]]s for.
It is better to have loved and lost, than to have paid for it and not liked it at all.
But it is impossible to replace a person one has loved with distractions.
Being in love was like China: you knew it was there, and no doubt it was very interesting, and some people went there, but I never would. I'd spend all my life without ever going to China, but it wouldn't matter, because there was all the rest of the world to visit.
Once a women has given you her heart you can never get rid of the rest of her.
All my life I have had a choice of hate and love. I chose love and I am here
Together, we'll live with the sadness. I'll love you with all the madness in my soul.
(on love) It's the only thing which allows men and women to stand in a world where gravity always seems to want to pull them down... bring them low... and make them crawl.
LOVE CANT BE OF A PERSON, IT HAS TO B EVERY BODYS
Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.
Nothing is impossible for pure love.
Nobody can teach you love. Love you have to find yourself, within your being, by raising your consciousness to higher levels. And when love comes, there is no question of responsibility. You do things because you enjoy doing them for the person you love. You are not obliging the person, you are not even wanting anything in return, not even gratitude. On the contrary, you are grateful that the person has allowed you to do something for him. It was your joy, sheer joy. Love knows nothing of responsibility. It does many things, it is very creative; it shares all that it has, but it is not a responsibility, remember. Responsibility is an ugly word in comparison to love. Love is natural. Responsibility is created by the cunning priests, politicians who want to dominate you in the name of God, in the name of the nation, in the name of family, in the name of religion -- any fiction will do. But they don't talk about love. On the contrary, they are all against love, because love is unable to be controlled by them. A man of love acts out of his own heart, not according to any moral code. A man of love will not join the army because it is his responsibility to fight for his nation. A man of love will say there are no nations, and there is no question of any fight.
Paradoxically, we fail to disclose ourselves to other people because we want so much to be loved. Because we feel that way we present ourselves as someone we think can be loved and accepted, and we conceal whatever would mar that image. Another reason we hide is to protect ourselves from change. . . Still another reason we don't disclose ourselves is that we were never taught how. . . Personal ambitions and economic pressures also give us powerful reasons for concealing what we really are. . . All of us hide behind the iron curtain of our public selves. . . Men hide what prevents them from seeming strong and masculine. . . Disclosure is so important (because) without it we really cannot know ourselves. Or to put it another way, we learn to deceive ourselves while we are trying to deceive others. For example, if I never express my sorrow, my love, my joy, I'll smother those feelings in myself until I almost forget they were once part of me.
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
How can I explain with the exact words the pain you do in me every time you say her name and worst is that she is my best friend
Love once earned must be earned once more. True love is freely given; not gained nor bought.
Make therefore every merit to deserve it, but no effort to conquer it.
The heart has its reasons which reason knows not of.
If I know what love is, it is because of you.
i don't miss you.. i miss who i thought you were.
and as far as your lack of something to say, well, to tell me goodbye there was no better way.
i wish i had the guts to walk away
and forget about what we had.
but, i can[[#146]]t because i know you won't come after me.. and i guess that's what hurts the most.
my whole life flashed before my eyes'
why is it when i was in a near death experience, you were my first thought?
The world is filled with hidden love.
First open your mind to someone,then open your heart
If you give me your heart I can either cherish it.. or throw it on the ground and step on it. Why are you giving me those options?
Learning to love yourself first brings more joy and peace then trying to love someone else.
Our love could change the orbit of the earth. So, if a meteor ever comes hurtling towards earth with the guarantee of destruction, top scientists may call on us to, well, you know, do it like crazy for the sake of humankind.
I thought you knew better but you keep choosing dudes that are labeled with the 12th letter! Your never going to win.
What Is Love: A MayBach with No engine! Just enjoy the inside, mark your permanent spot! Then You can build the engine together.
The ultimate love is to give yourself in every moment for the greater good.
Of Love there are many kinds. Before a person experiences overwhelming love in this world something must open up inside. Pierce the canopy above this level and Love will rain in, changing the whole human experience.
To love yourself is the beginning of a lifelong affair.
Anything you Love or Love to do, is worth a try is worth your time and commitment.
Deep love is more than physical touch – it is being touched on every level, in every cell of your body, every oxygen molecule in your breathing, every firing neuron in your brain. We want to be touched by Life until we are bursting and to share that uncontainable joy with others.
In order to love yourself, you must behave in ways that you admire.
I was sitting in a filed the other day and saw a star and it sparkeled over me...
When it did that I thought of you and the life we will have together, then another start sparkeled and that star represented out children...
But one star shone the brightest and it was the symbol of my love to you!
Remember to love yourself, before you can love another-KaMilaOnikosi
Must a little weep, Love,
And so fall asleep, Love,
Loved by thee.
Failing is the first step to success, Crying is the first step to happiness. And heart break is the first step to [true love.]
Love is born through the giving of kindness
If we were fish swimming free in the sea and you were caught in a net, I would jump in, just to be with you a few more precious minutes. Author Teresa Bolton may 2012

To dream on occasion is not dreaming; to love on occasion is not love.
A star needs a star.
It is beautiful to express love and even more beautiful to feel it.
I'm in love with the whole world.
I believe Love is the most courageous act of which a human being is capable. The word courage even stems from the root word “heart” (coeur). Scientifically speaking, it is quantifiable only by recognition of its quality.
When we love, we are courageous; and courage has nothing to do with being fearless, it’s about being willing to experience fear, even dread, to do what we must, without guarantee of outcome
Love is the eternal first breath.
Love is the best inevitable experience one can possess. It is costless,but many people lack it. It can only be found in True Hearts.
love is like a drugs ..
It never stopping follow us...
The essence of true love is born through deeply rooted foundations, which begin to blossom an understanding and connection that transcends the physical, which no distance can separate.
To see a beauty that only the heart can understand, where the physical world matters not, to release all burden and return to the source to become eternal as one
When we love what we do, then we only do what we love."~Anuj Somany
When love rules, power disappears.
When power rules, love disappears.
Care about your children. Just bless them instead of worrying,
as every child is the little Buddha who helps his parents to grow up.
Mankind have love, animals have affection.
The harmonious and beautiful world is revealed.
Observe the life by cause and consequence. Explore the life by wisdom.
Treat the life by equality. Complete the life by love.

Only the misfortune understands what fortune is, and knows how to treasure it.
Don't wait, don't waste, don't tarry until the flowers have gone away !
Everyone has his own parents. No one comes from nowhere.
Fortune is where the love is.
Happiness simply is someone who truly remains beside you whether you succeed or fail.
Gratitude is the one who stands by your side silently when you cry than a thousand words of comfort he says.

There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
The reason why love is eternal is that it does not exist for itself, but gives life to those it transforms.
She is the love of my life(s).
The more you keep PAIN inside you and show that you're strong the more your heart becomes tenuous, very tenuous that you start crying at the smallest thing.
I still remember the days you were here with me. We were so happy I didn't think it would ever end but now you're gone and you left me here all by myself. You moved on and forgot about me but I'm still here holding on to our memories, hoping someday you'll come back. I know eventually I'll have to move on and forget about you like you forgot about me but I just cant move on because I'm still in love with you.
To tell you the truth I really don't know why I just randomly smile when you're around. You're just standing there and I just cant stop smiling. Seeing you just once a day makes my day. I guess I'm just in love with you.
You did something to me, I don't know what it was but I do know that I don't want to lose you. You always keep a smile upon my face and I can act like myself because you accept me. You mean so much to me, the way you make me feel is just unexplainable. This is the happiest I've been in a awhile and I have to thank you for that. You just make it so easy to fall for you and believe me, I'm falling harder with each passing day.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings. Lost a day and a half.

And whom I love, I love indeed.
Life is not Hate and ignorance, Life is Love and Companionship.
