1.Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
2.A hundred hearts
would be too few
To carry all my love for you.
3.A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn't put there to stay -
Love isn't love
'Til you give it away.
Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen (Reprise)"
4.What I need to live has been given to me by the earth. Why I need to live has been given to me by you.
5.Love is like lightning.
When it hits you,
you feel it throughout
your entire body.
When it leaves you,
you're never the same again.
It can last for a long
while or be gone
in the blink of an eye.
And for some people,
it strikes more than once.
6.You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when you're sure they won't laugh if you trip.
Jonathan Carroll, "Outside the Dog Museum"
7.Love - a wildly misunderstood
although highly desirable
malfunction of the heart
which weakens the brain,
causes eyes to sparkle,
cheeks to glow,
blood pressure to rise
and the lips to pucker.
8.For twas not into my ear you whispered
But into my heart
Twas not my lips you kissed
But my soul
9.Love does not consist
of gazing at each other,
but in looking together
in the same direction.
10.A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.
George Jean Nathan
11.We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
12.For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
13.Love is only a dirty trick played on us to achieve continuation of the species.
W. Somerset Maugham, A Writer's Notebook, 1949
14.You know when you have found your prince
because you not only have
a smile on your face
but in your heart as well.
15.It is astonishing how little one feels alone when one loves.
16.Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.
17.Sometimes we make love with our eyes. Sometimes we make love with our hands. Sometimes we make love with our bodies. Always we make love with our hearts.
18.You learn to like someone
when you find out
what makes them laugh,
but you can never truly love someone
until you find out
what makes them cry.
19.I learned the real meaning of love. Love is absolute loyalty. People fade, looks fade, but loyalty never fades. You can depend so much on certain people, you can set your watch by them. And that's love, even if it doesn't seem very exciting.
20.The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing 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.
21.Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
22.The most important things
are the hardest to say,
because words diminish them.
23.My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, both are infinite.
24.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.
25.How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
~ From the movie Annie
26.What I need to live
has been given to me
by the earth.
27.Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
28.We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.
W. Somerset Maugham
29.The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them.
~ Stephen King
30.I love you like crazy, baby
'Cuz I'd go crazy without you.
