Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-13
James Thurber and E. B. White
Love is the strange bewilderment, which overtakes one person on account of another person.
The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.
The most difficult thing to explain in life is the simplest truth called love.
A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.
It's a very dangerous state. You are inclined to recklessness and kind of tune out the rest of your life and everything that's been important to you. It's actually not all that pleasurable. I don't know who the hell wants to get in a situation where you can't bear an hour without somebody's company.
As we have explained, in first love the soul is taken long before the body; later the body is taken long before the soul; sometimes the soul is not taken at all.
As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.
Henry Ward Beecher
Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart, or its flame burns low.
Love is when you look into someone's eyes and go all the way inside; to their soul and you both know... instantly!
Find the person who will love you because of your differences and not in spite of them and you have found a lover for life.
With love one can live even without happiness.
Love is a better teacher than duty.
Helen Gurley Brown
The prerequisite for making love is to like someone enormously.
To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to love and be loved, that's everything!
True love stories never have endings.
Honore de Balzac
A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love you want the other person.
You'll discover that real love is millions of miles past falling in love with anyone or anything. When you make that one effort to feel compassion instead of blame or self-blame, the heart opens again and continues opening.
H. L. Mencken
Love is like war: easy to begin but very hard to stop.
Leanna L. Bartram
True love is when your heart and your minds are saying the same thing.
I have found the paradox that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another's personhood.
Love is a friendship set to music.
Hamilton Wright Mabie
Blessed is the season, which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
I think what motivates people is not great hate, but great love for other people.
Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
Love is a gift, not an obligation, follow your heart and always trust the person you love.
James A. Baldwin
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Honesty is the only way with anyone, when you'll be so close as to be living inside each other's skins.
Vincent Van Gogh
Love is something eternal… The aspect may change, but not the essence.
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
What's meant to be will always find a way.
To be able to say how much you love is to love but little.
The best proof of love is trust.
Elizabeth Barret Browning
Whoso loves, believes the impossible.
