I love you not
only for what you are, but for what I am
when I am
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our
souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing
whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze
upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never ever the same.
It is impossible to love and be wise.
To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already
three parts dead.
May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive,
Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own home. Give
love to your children, to a wife or husband, to a next-door neighbor.
In his younger days a man dreams of possessing the heart of the woman
whom he loves; later, the feeling that he possesses the heart of a
woman may be enough to make him fall in love with her.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
True love is like a ghost; everyone talks of it,
Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize
for the truth.
The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard,
but must be felt with the heart.
Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator,
but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but looking outward in
the same direction.
But true love is a durable fire,
Real love stories never have endings.
The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
When I was a young man,
Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime, and never let go
till we're gone.
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You
can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's
going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to
really look after it and nurture it.
You may wish to be loving-- you may even try with all your might-but
your love will never be pure unless you are free from resentment. When
we are free from resentment, loving is effortless. When we have to try
hard to love, this is generally a sign that we are repressing our
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not
love does not know God, because God is love.
Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
Love vanquishes time. To lovers, a moment can be eternity, eternity
can be the tick of a clock. Across the barriers of time and the ultimate
destiny, love persists, for the home of the beloved, absent or present,
is always in the mind and heart. Absence does not diminish love.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile,
Many people when they fall in love look for a little haven of refuge
from the world, where they can be sure of being admired when they are
not admirable, and praised when they are not praiseworthy.
Though we may think we know each other well, when we neglect feelings
in a relationship, we neglect the deepest and most intimate part of
ourselves ... sharing feelings leads us to great closeness because
feelings are very personal, the most intimate part of us. The sharing of
a deep feeling is the greatest gift a human being can give to another.
Inside the heart of each and every one of us there is a longing to be
understood by someone who really cares. When a person is understood, he
or she can put up with almost anything in the world.
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in
