Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.

A bizarre sensation pervades a relationship of pretense. No truth seems true. A simple morning's greeting and response appear loaded with innuendo and fraught with implications. Each nicety becomes more sterile and each withdrawal more permanent.
There is always something ridiculous about the emotions of people whom one has ceased to love.
The one who loves least controls the relationship.
First open your mind to someone,then open your heart
Naturally, love's the most distant possibility.
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.
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment. [Philippians 1:9]
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. [John 13:35]

Love is not in our choice but in our fate.
The pain of love is the pain of being alive. It is a perpetual wound.
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.
We love because it's the only true adventure.
If I love you, what business is it of yours?
Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.
To love another person is to see the face of God. [Les Miserables]
Love is a state in which a man sees things most decidedly as they are not.
Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.
A heart that loves is always young.
Only from the heart Can you touch the sky.

To love one person with a private love is poor and miserable: to love all is glorious.
One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry.
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken -- and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.

Our first and last love is... self-love.
The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.
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.
i don't miss you.. i miss who i thought you were.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.
Love is the fulfilling of the Law.
The only victory over love is flight.
It is difficult to lay aside a confirmed passion.
For in the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.
The chemist who can extract from his heart's elements, compassion, respect, longing, patience, regret, surprise, and forgiveness and compound them into one can create that atom which is called love.
