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
- By Kahlil Gibran
Where does the family start? It starts with a young man falling in love with a girl - no superior alternative has yet been found
- By Sir Winston Churchill
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
- By William Shakespeare
...Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or Bends with the remover to remove.
O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wandering bark,
whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken
- By William Shakespeare
I love you not only for what you are,
But for what I am when I'm with you.
- By Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Love is like the wild rose-briar
Friendship like the holly-tree -
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?
- By Emily Bronte
You say that love is nonsense....I tell you it is no such thing. For weeks and months it is a steady physical pain, an ache about the heart, never leaving one, by night or by day; a long strain on one's nerves like toothache or rheumatism, not intolerable at any one instant, but exhausting by its steady drain on the strength.
- By Henry Adams
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.
- By Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Love is a game that two can play and both win by loosing their heart.
- By Eva Gabor
There is only one terminal dignity - By love. And the story of a love is not important-what is important is that one is capable of love. It is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity.
- By Helen Hayes
Once i knew only darkness and stillness...my life was without past or future...but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.
- By Helen Keller
Love is determined not in the amount of tome you spend telling each other I love you. It's the value of the love shared by two as one.
- By Laylia Keyes
Love is a butterfly, which when pursued is just beyond your grasp, but if you will sit down quietly it may alight upon you.
- By Nathaniel Hawthorne
The greatest happiness of life it the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
- By Victor Hugo
Love is like a friendship caught on fire.
In the beginning a flame, very pretty,
Often hot and fierce,
But still only light and flickering.
As love grows older,
Our hearts mature
And our love becomes as coals,
Deep-burning and unquenchable
- By Bruce Lee
If we discovered that we had only five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say, every telephone booth would be occupied by people calling other people to stammer that they loved them.
- By Christopher Morley
The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain signing to it - you and you alone make me feel that I am alive - Other men, it is said, have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
- By George Moore
When I first met you, I was afraid to talk to you.
When I talked to you, I was afraid to kiss you.
When I kissed you, I was afraid to love you.
Now that I love you, I'm afraid to lose you.
- By Kuuipo Mark
