It’s better to have loved and lost,
than to have never loved at all..Alfred Lord Tennyson
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies…
Love means to commit oneself without guarantee,
to give oneself completely in the hope
that our love will produce love in the loved person.
Love is an act of faith,
and whoever is of little faith is also of little love…
True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself.
It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations:
it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart…
Honore de Balzac
For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it…
Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch,
but whose fragrance makes
the garden a place of delight just the same…
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…
It is a curious thought,
but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous
that you realize just how much you love them….
It’s so easy, to think about love,
to talk about love, to wish for love,
but it’s not always easy,
to recognize love,
even when we hold it… in our hands…
Love is a fruit in season at all times,
and in reach of every hand…
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
