Love is like a mountain, Hard to climb, But once you get
to the top The view is beautiful.
Daniel Monroe Tuttle
Hang up the swing of love today!
Hang the body and the mind between the arms of the beloved,
in the ecstasy of love's joy.
The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing
called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of
it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.
Love shortens time, changes the hours. Love is invincible.
Many waters cannot quench it nor the floods drown. The supreme
happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved.
I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their
religion - I have shudder'd at it. - I shudder no more - I
could be martyr'd for my religion - Love is my religion -
I could die for that - I could die for you.
In letter to Fanny Brawne.
Love is like a butterfly, it settles upon you when you least
In this universe it is love that binds everything together.
Love is the very foundation, beauty and fulfillment of life.
Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)
People need love even when they don't deserve it.
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
e. e. cummings
I am wild, I will sing to the trees,
I will sing to the stars in the sky,
I love, I am loved, he is mine,
Now at last I can die!
I am sandaled with wind and with flame,
I have heart-fire and singing to give,
I can tread on the grass or the stars,
Now at last I can Live!
Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
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.
Love cures people - both the ones who give it and the ones
who receive it.
Paradise is always where love dwells.
Jean Paul F. Richter
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and
find all the barriers within yourself that you have built
If I say I love you, can I keep you forever?
From movie of same name.
My body is flooded
With the flame of Love.
My soul lives in
A furnace of bliss.
Fills my mouth,
And fans through all things
With each outbreath.
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be
loved in return.
From his song, Nature Boy.
Will you love me in December as you do in May,
Will you love me in the good old fashioned way?
When my hair has all turned gray,
Will you kiss me then and say,
That you love me in December as you do in May.
One regret, dear world,
That I am determined not to have
When I am lying on my deathbed
I did not kiss you enough.
Today I caught myself smiling for no reason...Then I realized
I was thinking about you.
Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without.
If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up
with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love
like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how
do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart.
I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt,
you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense
living your life without this. To make the journey and not
fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all.
You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't
If I have two hearts, I will use one to love you and the other
one to love you more.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
So we grew together,
Like to a double cherry, seeming parted;
But yet a union in partition,
Two lovely berries moulded on one stem.
A Midsummer Night's Dream.
If I had a single flower for every time I think about you,
I could walk forever in my garden.
What is life without the radiance of love.
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I
love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing
to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not
to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving
something - and it is only such love that can know freedom.
You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
I love you. It's not a weight you must carry around. I love
you. It's not a box that holds you in. I love you. It's not
a standard you have to bear. I love you. It's not a sacrifice
I make. I love you. It's not a pedestal you are frozen upon.
I love you. It's not an expectation of perfection. I love
you. It's not my life's whole purpose (or yours). I love you.
It's not to make you change. I love you. It's not even to
make you love me. I love you. It's as pure and simple as that.
Love is the only fire that is hot enough to melt the iron
obstinacy of a creatures' will.
A long time I have loved the sunned mother-of-pearl of your
I go so far as to think that you own the universe.
I will bring you happy flowers from the mountains, bluebells,
dark hazels, and rustic baskets of kisses.
to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences,
penetrates walls to arrive at its destination, full of hope.
