Love, in general

Love as a verb. Love as a commitment.
Emily Giffin

Life is one fool thing after another whereas love is two fool things after each other.
Oscar Wilde

A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other. Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.
Dave Matthews Band

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.
Ten Things I Hate About You

Love at first sight is easy to understand. It’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.
Sam Levenson

Take it from me: love has all the lasting permanence of a rainbow –beautiful while it’s there, and just as likely to have disappeared by the time you blink.
Jodi Picoult

And no relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater. But, the love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And thats the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.
Sarah Dessen

Because being in an actual relationship means taking a risk, you know? It’s just, a leap of faith. No matter how many times one might have been disappointed in the past.
Sex and the City

Males and females have never seemed to fully understand each other. it will probably continue this way, but I think that’s part of the magic of it all.
Scott Bairstow

Many people spend their entire lives searching for the meaning of life, but it has completely eluded them. They look for material goods, thrills, anything except the one thing that they are missing that is right in front of their faces … love. People waste away their lives trying to be the best at something … best athlete, best executive, best anything … but being these things just covers up the fact that we are still missing the one thing that is important to every human being … love.
Dan Karl

Well, growing up sucks. Not all kisses are magic, and most boys don’t live up to your expectations. But there are times when love, romance, relationships… it all fits together perfectly, and it’s incredible, and it’s those moments, no matter how depressingly few and far between, that make growing up worth it.
Dawson’s Creek

First love. We’ve all been through it. It can really get a hold of ya. Make you do some pretty crazy things.
Down To You

The way to love anything is to realize it might be lost.
G.H. Chesterton

I believe in the power of love, and I believe there is always hope.
Naomi Judd

Love is a word that gets thrown around a lot, and when I say it, I wanna mean it.
American Pie

I think I have finally come to understand why my life is like it is. All of the heartbreaks and disappointments are going to help me truly appreciate love, whenever it finds me.
Amanda Gattie

I don’t want to live — I want to love first, and live incidentally.
Zelda Fitzgerald

True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. If you hear bells, go get your ears checked.
Erich Segai

I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who said love is blind. Now that is something I know to be quite true. For some quite inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course love can also be found, even if just for the night.
The Holiday

Love never stops being patient, never stops believing, never gives up.
1 Corinthians 13:7

You shouldn’t let me dream ‘cause I’m too romantic; Don’t let me fall unless it could all come true.
Frank Sinatra

Like an old photograph, time can make a feeling fade. But the memory of the first love never fades away.
Tim McGraw

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.
C. S. Lewis

It was the best thing anyone had ever said to me, and it was the best for one reason: I felt exactly the same way. The person who loved me like this was the person I loved back– which can feel like an absolute miracle. It is an absolute miracle.
Emily Giffin, Baby Proof

It’s funny, most people can be around someone and then gradually begin to love them and never know exactly when it happened.
Fried Green Tomatoes

I’m just saying, you can’t know who that person is … the person who will become your ultimate confidant, your soul mate, or your lover. He may be someone you’ve had your eye on for years, or he might be that guy standing next to you in torn jeans buying some part for his car. Whoever it is, he starts off as a stranger, so it could be anyone.

Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting,
challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.
Sex and the City

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.
William Parrish

Love conquers all.

Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
Franklin P. Jones

A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.
Pride &Prejudice

If he’s not the guy, if what he needs from you just isn’t there… let him go. Break his heart and make it a clean break. But if you really think you can love this guy, I’m talking scary, messy, no emotions barred need. If you’re ready for that, think about what you’re about to lose.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Summer romances end for all kinds of reasons, but when all is said and done, they have one thing in common. They’re shooting stars, a spectacular moment of light in the heavens, fleeting glimpse of eternity, and in a flash they’re gone.
The Notebook

I like guys a lot, but I’m not going to waste my time with some guy that doesn’t see things the way I do… I mean do you really need this guy?
Object of my Affection

He was not my boyfriend. On the other hand, he wasn’t just a friend either. Instead, our relationship was elastic, stretching between those two extremes depending on who else was around, how much either of us had to drink, and other varying factors. This was exactly what I wanted, as commitments had never really been my thing. And it wasn’t like it was hard, either. The only trick was never giving more than you were willing to lose.
Sarah Dessen, Lock and Key

Some love stories aren’t epic novels, some are short stories. But, that doesn’t make them any less filled with love.
Sex and the City (The Movie)

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Proverbs 3:3
I had a choice. I could run, or I could stand and ask him the question that if I didn’t ask, would haunt me for the rest of my life.
Sex and the City

Maybe, you don’t believe it’s for real, unless someone is playing hard to get.
Sex and the City

The tough thing about following your heart is that people forget to mention that sometimes the heart takes you to places you shouldn’t be. Places that are scary as they are exciting and as dangerous as they are alluring. Sometimes your heart cannot take you to places that lead to happy endings. That’s not even the difficult part; the difficult part is when you follow your heart, you leave normal; you go into the unknown and once you do you can never go back.

Love is the most dangerous craving of all, if you ask me. It turns us into people we aren’t, it makes us feel like hell, and makes us walk on water. It ruins us for anything else.
Jodi Picoult

Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
Robert Frost

Those who hate most fervently must have once loved deeply; those who want to deny the world must have once embraced what they now set on fire.
Kurt Tucholsky

And then there’s love. I want you to love to the tips of your fingers and when you find that love, wherever you find it, whoever you choose, don’t run away from it. But you don’t have to chase it either. You just be patient and it will come to you, I promise. And when you least expect it.
Dawson’s Creek

There are people who take the heart out of you,
And those who put it back in.

And you know what? When you least expect it, something great might come along. Something better than you ever planned.
Along Came Polly

Lay all your troubles down, I am with you now. I’m here for the hard times, the straight to your heart times, when the living ain’t easy, you can stand up against me. Whatever may fall on you, call on me.
Matchbox 20

You were right. I don’t know what is greater, life or death. But love is more so than all.
Tristan & Isolde

At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different that your dream. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s “happy every after,” just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while people make even take your breath away.
Grey’s Anatomy

Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it.

Sometimes new love comes between old friends. Sometimes the best love was the one that was already there.
What Dreams May Come

Some things you see with your eyes, others you see with your heart.
The Land Before Time

The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of.
Blaise Pascal

None of those other things make a difference. Love is the strongest thing in the world, ya know. Nothing can touch it. Nothing comes close. If we love each other, we’re safe from it all. Love is the biggest there is.
Snow Falling on Cedars

We’re all a little in the dark when it comes to love. Sometimes you have to run away from it to see it clearly. And sometimes you have to come home to try it again.
Men In Trees

You can’t control when you lose your heart. The only thing you can do is trust. Trust that the person who has your heart realizes its value.
Grey’s Anatomy

All you need is love is a lie cause
We had love but we still said goodbye
Now we’re tired, battered fighters
John Mayer

Love is like that. It is always giving itself away. When it is self contained, it is not love.
Robert E. Coleman

Love is when you do things you swore you’d never do.
Paul Walker

Love is the expression of one’s values, the greatest reward you can earn for the moral qualities you have achieved in your character and person, the emotional price paid by one man for the joy he receives from the virtues of another.
Ayn Rand

Love is when thoughts of but one man fill your heart, when he means more than life to you, when you know you would do anything for him and shall die if he is taken from you.
Janelle Taylor

What is love? Alright, you know how when you’re listening to music from another room and you’re singing along, because it’s a tune you really love? When the door closes, or the train passes, and you can’t hear the music anymore but you sing along anyway, then no matter how much time passes, when you hear the music again, you’re still in the exact time. That’s what it’s like.
Music From Another Room

My daddy used to tell me that the first time you fall in love, it changes your life forever, and no matter how hard you try, the feeling never goes away.
The Notebook

Sometimes you love, and you learn, and you move on. And that’s okay.

People say they “find” love, as if it were an object hidden by a rock. But love takes many forms, and it is never the same for any man and woman. What people find then is a certain love.
The 5 People You Meet In Heaven

What if Prince Charming had never showed up? Would Snow White have slept in that glass coffin forever? Or would she have eventually woke up, spit out the apple, gotten a job, a healthcare package, and a baby from her local neighborhood sperm bank? I couldn’t help but wonder… Inside every confident, driven, single woman, is there a delicate, fragile princess just waiting to be saved?
Sex &The City

Love doesn’t require you to be perfect, but it does require you to forgive.
Boy Meets World
And it was through falling flat-on-my-butt in love with him that I realized the most important thing about first love: as deep as it is for you at the time, its only a teaser for even more amazing things to come. and whether first love ends dramatically or hurtfully or simply, eventually all the emotional fog surrounding it clears and we can see that first love is so special because its one of the few experiences in life when we follow only our heart – not reason, not “rules”, not what other people say. maybe that’s why we all hold on to our first love in some way – why we miss it or long for it, want to reclaim or redo it. because first love opens our eyes to that feeling that everyone’s been talking about, singing about, writing about. it makes you feel like you’ve crossed over from not knowing, to knowing. with first love, everything is new – and the possibilities it awakens in you are exhilarating.
Jessica Blatt

And love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone’s bad qualities because they somehow complete you.
Sarah Dessen

Love is a war
I’m your soldier
J. Holiday

Love is union with somebody, or something, outside oneself, under the condition of retaining the separateness and integrity of one’s own self.
Erich Fromm

To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.
Karen Sunde

Love is being utterly spoiled.
Love is having someone of your own to snuggle up to.
Love is not a decision, love is a feeling. If you could decide who you loved it would be a lot easier but a lot less magical.
Mary Pat Michalek

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Jean Anouilh Ardele

Love is a great beautifier.
Louisa May Alcott

True love is when you’re still dancing, long after the music has stopped.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself But if your love and must needs have desires, Let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook That sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully. To wake at dawn with a winged heart And give thanks for another day of loving; To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy; To return home at eventide with gratitude; And then to sleep with a prayer For the beloved in your heart And a song of praise upon your lips.
Gibran Kahlil Gibran

True love is when you’re still dancing, long after the music has stopped
Love is the same as like except you feel sexier and more romantic and also more annoyed when he talks with his mouth full. And you also resent it more when he interrupts you, and you respect him less when he shows any weakness, and further more, when you ask him to pick you up at the airport and he tells you he can’t do it because he is busy. It’s only when you love him that you hate him.
Judith Viorst

Love is the key that fits a million locks.
The Monkees

Love is still a simple act of faith, and a faithful heart is always worth the wait.
Neil Diamond

Love is missing someone whenever you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you’re close at heart.
Kay Knudsen

Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.
Vincent Van Gogh

Love is the passionate and abiding desire on the part of two or more people to produce together conditions under which each can be and spontaneously express his real self; to produce together an intellectual soil and an emotional climate in which each can flourish, far superior to what either could achieve alone. Love is a verb. We can’t say it enough. Love must not only be spoken, but must also be shown. The beginning of love is God. He showed his love in the most sacrificial of ways so we could know our incredible value to him. The price of our adoption was the emptying of heaven of its greatest treasure, God the Son, who is our Savior.
Phil Ware

Romantic love is a mental illness, but it’s a pleasurable one. It’s a drug. It distorts reality and that’s the point of it. It would be impossible to fall in love with someone that you really saw.
Fran Lebowitz

Love is a two-sided issue. Just as it can give one the greatest ecstasy, it can cause one the greatest pain. Yet most of us are willing to take the risk.
Kahil Gibran

Love is complicated – full of sacrifice and compromise … but maybe that’s the best part.

Love is when you do things you swore you’d never do.
Paul Walker

Love is the expression of one’s values, the greatest reward you can earn for the moral qualities you have achieved in your character and person, the emotional price paid by one man for the joy he receives from the virtues of another.
Ayn Rand

Love is when thoughts of but one man fill your heart, when he means more than life to you, when you know you would do anything for him and shall die if he is taken from you.

When the door closes, or the train passes, and you can’t hear the music anymore but you sing along anyway, then no matter how much time passes, when you heart the music again, you’re still in the exact time. That’s what it’s like.
Music From Another Room

Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.
Joan Crawford

Love is the extra effort we make in our dealings with those whom we do not like and once you understand that, you understand all. This idea that love overtakes you is nonsense. This is but a polite manifestation of sex. To love another you have to undertake some fragment of their destiny.
Quentin Crisp

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishing.
Anais Nin

‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

Love is a choice you make from moment to moment.
Barbara DeAngelis

Love is always a good thing no matter how much it hurts. Even after it’s over, even through the pain … anyone who has ever really loved will tell you that they never regretted a second of it, no matter how much it hurt in the end. And if you tell me differently, I will tell you that you were not truly in love.
April Nizlek

Love is the most unpredictable of things. It can both lift and destroy your heart in an instant.
K. Braun

Isn’t that the definition of love anyway? It’s obsessive, right? It’s not safe, it’s real and it’s raw.
Life as We Know It

Love is, perhaps, the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity.
Helen Hayes

Love. It is the hardest habit to break and the craving most difficult to satisfy.
Drew Barrymore

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love,” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Love is the answer. At least for most of the questions in my heart like why we’re here and where do we go and how come it’s so hard.
Jack Johnson

You know, it’s been said that we just don’t recognize the significant moments in our lives while they’re happening, that we grow complacent with ideas or things or people, and we take them for granted, and it’s usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you, that you realize how wrong you’ve been, that you realize how much you really need it, how much you love it.
One Tree Hill
I believe in Karma, what you give is what you get returned, I believe you can’t appreciate real love until you’ve been burned.
Savage Garden

It’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in this world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold onto it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life…. You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. but don’t worry…. You will someday.
American Beauty

A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.
The Wizard of Oz

Maybe that’s why we hold on as hard as we do, we just can’t believe such a miracle can happen to us twice…but it can, someday you’ll find it again.
Sarah Dessen

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
Anais Nin

And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.
Nicholas Sparks

After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart.
Grey’s Anatomy

When you are in a relationship, you are aware that it might end. You
might grow apart, find someone else, simply fall out of love. But a
friendship isn’t a zero-sum game, and as such, you assume that it will
last forever, especially an old friendship. You take its permanence for
granted, which might be the very thing so dear about it.

You have to learn to walk. You have to learn to talk. You have to
wear that totally ridiculous hat your grandma bought you. You have
no say in the matter. And when you get a little older, even though
you get to choose your hats, you don’t get to choose what they put
in those meatballs in the cafeteria, or when to fall in love.
Sometimes things happen and you just have to deal.
How to Deal

Most guys will say what they think you want to hear at the end of a date or a phone call, rather than nothing at all. Some guys are lying, some guys really mean it. Here’s how you can tell the difference: You know they mean it when they actually do what they said they were going to do.
He’s Just Not That Into You

One restless summer we found love growin’ wild on the banks of the river on a well beaten path, It’s funny how those memories they last.
Deana Carter

I knew that there were no guarantees. No way of knowing what came next for me, for him, or anybody. Some things don’t last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there…
Sarah Dessen

You know how when you’re making a snow angel and you wanna make it perfect, but you can’t cause there’s always that hand print when you climb out? Well with him — there’s no handprint
Snow Day

Good relationships balance over time. This means that at any particular point in time, the relationship may appear quite unbalanced: One partner may be more nurturing; one may be more needy; one may be providing all the financial support, etc. But if both partners are loving, understanding, giving, dedicated and flexible, then the relationship can handle all kinds of ups and downs, and still be strong, exciting and, yes, romantic. The best relationships are well balanced. Not a delicate balance; not a static balance- but a dynamic ever-changing balance
Gregory Godek

Commitment is the component of love. Short term commitment is the decision that one loves someone. The long term aspect is the commitment to maintain that love.
Robert Steinberg

I suck with words. but sometimes words aren’t the thing. Love isn’t about words, it’s about what you do…and what I did, running away, it was stupid. We both know love is a big, scary, evil concept. but if you feel it, it’s gonna follow you around like a hungry dog. I didn’t mean to say that love is a dog….I just mean I’m not going anywhere. I love you. If love beats us up let’s just beat it up right back. We can do this. If you’re ready to make the jump, I’ll be right there to catch you.
How To Deal

The vow is simple, really. Those who take it promise to stay together for better or for worse. For richer or for poorer. In sickness and in health. To honor and to cherish. Forsaking all others. Until death do us part. Yes, the vow is simple. Finding someone worthy of such a promise is the hard part. But if we can, that’s when we begin to live happily ever after.
Desperate Housewives

You have got a talent for love. You’re like, the love genius. And there’s too many statues of generals and politicians and there’s not enough statues of people like you. You know? In this world…in this world, there’s so much that looks like love, and sounds like love, and calls itself love, but it isn’t. It’s just people saying and doing what they think that they ought to say and do. So here’s to love. Here’s to you.

In my opinion, the best thing you can do is to find a person who loves you for exactly who you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think that the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with

You know that feeling where everything feels right? Where you don’t have to worry about tomorrow or yesterday, where you feel safe and know you’re doing the best you can? There’s a word for that, it’s called love. L-O-V-E.
Akeelah and The Bee

If you love something, sometimes you just wanna be surrounded by it.
Good Luck Chuck

Honestly, if you’re not willing to sound stupid you don’t deserve to be in love.
A Lot Like Love

There is a story about the Greek Gods; they were bored so they invented human beings, but they were still bored so they invented love, then they weren’t bored any longer. So they decided to try love for themselves. And finally, they invented laughter, so they could stand it.
Feast of Love

And I don’t know. This could break my heart or save me. Nothing’s really until you let go completely. So here I go with all my thoughts I’ve been saving. So here I go with all my fears weighing on me.
Kelly Clarkson

I may not be a smart man, but I know what love is.
Forrest Gump

You’re not perfect, sport. And let me save you the suspense — this girl you met, she isn’t perfect either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other.
Good Will Hunting

All of us search for love, but some of us, after we’ve found it, wish we hadn’t.
Desperate Housewives

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.
J. Krishnamurti

I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & that the Eskimos have a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me when you sleep & there are no words for that.
Brian Andreas

He kissed me, then. Really put his arms around me and kissed me. it went through my body like he had flipped some electrical switch and lit me up. His skin was so warm, and he was suddenly so beautiful, & I thought, oh, this is what all the hype is about.
E. Lockharrt

But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.
Nicholas Sparks

When the power of love overcomes the love of power.. the world will know peace.
Jimi Hendrix

You fell in love with someone because of the tilt of his smile, or because he could make you laugh, or in this case, because he made you believe you were the only one who could save him.
Jodi Picoult

Love is much too vast to be gathered in a thought. You’ve got to get outside your head
and start thinking with your heart.
Nick Shannon
Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
Robert Heinlein

People love others not for who they are but for how they make them feel.
Irwin Federman

The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
Morrie Schwartz

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
Jalal ad-Din Rumi

You can’t stop loving or wanting to love because when its right, it’s the best thing in the world. When you’re in a relationship and it’s good, even if nothing else in your life is right, you feel like your whole world is complete.
Keith Sweat

People don’t know how to love. They bite rather than kiss. They slap rather than stroke. Maybe it’s because they recognize how easy it is for love to go bad, to become suddenly impossible… unworkable, an exercise of futility. So they avoid it and seek solace in angst, and fear, and aggression, which are always there and readily available. Or maybe sometimes… they just don’t have all the facts.
The Upside of Anger

You dont love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.
Jodi Picoult

So much of the language of love was like that: you devoured someone with your eyes, you drank in the sight of him, you swallowed him whole. Love was substance, broken down and beating through your bloodstream.
Jodi Picoult

Love is not an equation, it is not a contract, and it is not a happy ending. Love is the slate under the chalk, the ground that buildings rise, and the oxygen in the air. It is the place you come back to, no matter where you’re headed.
Jodi Picoult

Love is not a because. It’s a no matter what.
Jodi Picoult

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
Elie Wiesel
There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.
Sarah Dessen

L’amor che move il sole e l’altre stele. The love that moves the sun and the other stars.
Elizabeth Gilbert

Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.
Erich Fromm

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Mother Teresa

Whoever loves above all the approach of love will never know the joy of attaining it.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The essence of romantic love is that wonderful beginning, after which sadness and impossibility may become the rule.
Anita Brookner

We don’t love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Jacques Jacques Maritain

It is not love that is blind, but jealousy.
Lawrence Durrell

Sympathy constitutes friendship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Love won’t be tampered with, love won’t go away. Push it to one side and it creeps to the other.
Louise Erdrich

The love we give away is the only love we keep.
Elbert Hubbard

There is a place you can touch a woman that will drive her crazy — her heart.
Milk Money

1 Corinthians 13 Love – The Greatest Of All
1 I may be able to speak the languages of men and even of angels, but if I do not have love, it will sound like noisy brass. 2 If I have the gift of speaking God’s Word and if I understand all secrets, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I know all things and if I have the gift of faith so I can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give everything I have to feed poor people and if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, it will not help me.
4 Love does not give up. Love is kind. Love is not jealous. Love does not put itself up as being important. Love has no pride.
5 Love does not do the wrong thing. Love never thinks of itself. Love does not get angry. Love does not remember the suffering that comes from being hurt by someone. 6 Love is not happy with sin. Love is happy with the truth. 7 Love takes everything that comes without giving up. Love believes all things. Love hopes for all things. Love keeps on in all things.
8 Love never comes to an end. The gift of speaking God’s Word will come to an end. The gift of speaking in special sounds will be stopped. The gift of understanding will come to an end. 9 For we only know a part now, and we speak only a part. 10 When everything is perfect, then we will not need these gifts that are not perfect.
11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child. I thought like a child. I understood like a child. Now I am a man. I do not act like a child anymore. 12 Now that which we see is as if we were looking in a broken mirror. But then we will see everything. Now I know only a part. But then I will know everything in a perfect way. That is how God knows me right now. 13 And now we have these three: faith and hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.

You’ve done it, you’ve made me start to fall in love with you. I’m sitting here crying because I’m so scared but at the same time, I’m so happy I’m falling in love with you. You’re the person I’ve waited for all this time, the person I’ve looked for all my life and when I least expected it you walked into my life. You listened when I talked, was there when I cried and made me finally smile. I’m crying for the last time I hope, I trust that you won’t hurt me. It’s so hard for me to trust guys, but you’re worth it to me. So, here’s my heart, see all the little cracks… they’re pretty small and healed nicely, but you, I know, that you’re the one that could make it completely shatter. Promise me you wont, please, promise me you’ll love me forever, and that you won’t break my heart. Even if you can’t promise me that, I’ll give you my heart anyway, cause I know that if I don’t give you my heart I’ll regret it for the rest if my life, cause you’re the one person who is necessary to my life.
Kate Tierny

True love. You know . . . when you’re old and you’re wrinkly and you’re sitting there gumming your food and your husband looks at you and even though he doesn’t see you very well anymore, he can see in your eyes the whole world: the future, the past, everything that was good and even things that were bad, and he can still say, ‘There is my queen and what a privilege it has been to love her.’
Prince Charming

To be happy, it first takes being comfortable being in your own shoes. The rest can work up from there. The hardest situation to stay happy in, I think, is when you’re trying to find love, and yourself at the same time. It just doesn’t seem to fit well. So I believe that happiness is being able to wake up and just know that this is what you wanted, and not what somebody else wanted.
Sophia Bush

But nothing’s greater than the rush that comes with your embrace and in this world of loneliness, I see your face. Yet everyone around me thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe. But I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you. They try to pull me away but they don’t know the truth. My heart’s crippled by the vein that I keep on closing. You cut me open and I keep bleeding love.
Leona Lewis

The greatest tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they cease to love.
W. Somerset Maugham

From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.

The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.
Sir Hugh Walpole

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.
Erich Fromm

Think about it, there must be higher love Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above Without it, life is a wasted time Look inside your heart, I’ll look inside mine.
Steve Winwood

Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint Exupery

You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.
Sam Keen

You can give without loving, But you cannot love without giving.
Amy Carmichael

There are no guarantees. From the viewpoint of fear, None are strong enough. From the viewpoint of love, None are necessary.

Nearly everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime. For example, you’re walking along minding your own business, you’re looking neither to the left, nor to the right, when all of the sudden, you run smack into a pretty face. WHOO-WHOO! You begin to get weak in the knees, your head’s in a whirl! And then you feel light as feather, and before you know it you’re walking on air! And then you know what? You’re knocked for a loop! And you completely lose your head! You’re twitterpated.

Love hurts, but sometimes it’s a good hurt. And it feels like I’m alive.

Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe… it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is… just… moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope
He’s Just Not That Into You

People always say that, when you love someone, nothing in the world matters. But that’s not true, is it? You know, and I know, that when you love someone, everything in the world matters a little bit more.
Jodi Picoult

But love wasn’t about sacrifice, and it wasn’t about falling short of someone’s expectations. By definition, love made you better than good enough; it redefined perfection to include your traits, instead of excluding them.
Jodi Picoult

Piglet: how do you spell love?
Pooh: you don’t spell it. you feel it.
Winnie The Pooh

Three months ago, if you asked me, I would have told you that if you really loved someone, you’d let them go. But now I look at you, and I dream about her, and I see that I’ve been wrong. If you really love someone, I think you have to take them back.
Jodi Picoult

I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face, they don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.

People say love’s complicated but it’s not. be good to your partner: fight for him not with him. And above all, be honest.
Instant Star

Who wants that? I’d rather choose to fall in love and be hurt. Sometimes I can’t even sleep because I love someone so much. And there’s always sadness in our lives. It’s that sad feeling that keeps us going. Because if we can overcome that sadness, we can hope for happiness in the future

Well, love is insanity . The ancient Greeks knew that. It is the taking over of a rational and lucid mind by delusion and self-destruction. You lose yourself, you have no power over yourself, you can’t even think straight.
Marilyn French

It had taken her years to understand, but now she was a firm believer: Love was that way. You could not render it in black and white. It always came down to the strange, blended shades of gray.
Jodi Picoult, Picture Perfect

There is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or why or who you are. You want one and I want one, but there isn’t one. It comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.
Mayra Hornbacher, Wasted
The hardest thing is loving someone and then having the courage to let them love you back.
The Wedding Date

Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, It’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them.
Dream for an Insomniac

Sometimes you love someone so much you become numb to it, because if you didn’t become numb, such strong emotion would kill you
Riding in Cars with Boys

But maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.
Emily Giffin

‘This wouldn’t be so hard if I didn’t love him. There should be a pill you can take to make love go away.’
‘Why would you want to make love go away? It’s hard enough to find it in the first place.’
The Women

Even more, I had never meant to love him. One thing I truly knew – knew it in the pit of my stomach, in the center of my bones, knew it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, knew it deep in my empty chest – was how love gave someone the power to break you.
Stephanie Meyer, New Moon

Someone once told me that the power in all relationships lies with whoever cares less, and he was right. But power isn’t happiness, and I think that maybe happiness comes from caring more about people rather than less…
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

People are stupid and just want to be loved. That’s the only reason anyone does anything.
Grey’s Anatomy

Yes, it’s true, what I said earlier: A real life doesn’t mean getting what you want; the achievement, the privilege, too, is knowing what you love. But getting what you love? Having what you love love you back? Oh, my friend, it’s miracle: your one tiny life’s head-on collision with divinity.
Marisa de los Santos , Love Walked In

But maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.
Emily Giffin

That he’ll never let you down. That boy’s got a heart the size of Kentucky, and he loves you. That’s important. Take it from someone who knows. My mom used to tell me that whatever you do, marry someone who loves you more than you love him.
Nicholas Sparks

Commitment is the component of love. Short term commitment is the decision that one loves someone. The long term aspect is the commitment to maintain that love.
Robert Steinberg

Like all the fools who play it smart, lose your head just for your heart–there are no rules to this love.

Love is a better master than duty.
Albert Einstein

It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
Albert Einstein

The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.
J. R. R. Tolkien

We love the things we love for what they are.
Robert Frost

Two people in love, alone, isolated from the world, that’s beautiful.
Milan Kundera

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.
James A. Baldwin

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Mother Teresa

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
Robert A. Heinlein

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.
William Shakespeare

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
Mother Teresa

If I know what love is, it is because of you.
Herman Hesse

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Helen Keller

Love is not an easy feeling to put into words…
Ted Kennedy

Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it
Nicholas Sparks (A Walk to Remember)

I finally understood what true love meant…love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.
Nicholas Sparks (Dear John)

Suddenly, I knew what I had to do. Love isn’t about ridiculous little words. Love is about grand gestures. Love is about airplanes pulling banners over stadiums, proposals on jumbo-trons, giant words in sky writing. Love is about going that extra mile even if it hurts, letting it all hang out there. Love is about finding courage inside of you that you didn’t even know was there.
Little Manhattan

Love is an ugly, terrible business practiced by fools. It’ll trample your heart and leave you bleeding on the floor. And what does it really get you in the end? Nothing but a few incredible memories that you can’t ever shake. The truth is, there’s gonna be other girls out there. I mean, I hope. But I’m never gonna get another first love. That one is always gonna be her.
Little Manhattan

Passion is passion. It’s the excitement between the tedious spaces, and it doesn’t matter where it’s directed…It can be coins or sports or politics or horses or music or faith…the saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all.
Nicholas Sparks (Dear John)

The greater the love, the greater the tragedy when it’s over.
Nicholas Sparks (Nights in Rodanthe)

I don’t know that love changes. People change. Circumstances change.
Nicholas Sparks

If you like her, if she makes you happy, and if you feel like you know her—then don’t let her go.
Nicholas Sparks (Message in a Bottle)

People want pretty much the same things: They wanted to be happy. Most young people seemed to think that those things lay somewhere in the future, while most older people believed they lay in the past.
Nicholas Sparks (Nights in Rodanthe)

Maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.
Emily Giffin

…love is the sum of our choices, the strength of our commitments, the ties that bind us together.
Emily Giffin

You can’t quantify love, and if you try, you can end up focusing on misleading factors. Stuff that really has more to do with personality-the fact that some people are simply more expressive or emotional or needy in a relationship. But beyond such smokescreens, the answer is there. Love is seldom-almost never-an even proposition.
Emily Giffin

True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.
Francois de La Roche

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
Zora Neale Hurston

Let us try what love can do to mend this broken world.
Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.

So why don’t you lay right here? Let me just ease your mind. I’m givin’ you all my time. I’m gonna keep on, keep on loving you strong and slow, wherever that you want me to, maybe my whole life through. I’m gonna keep on, keep on loving you
Steel Magnolia

I love when you tell me that I’m pretty when I just wake up. And I love how you tease me when I’m moody but it’s never too much. I’m falling fast but the truth is I’m not scared at all. You climbed my walls.
Lady Antebellum

Well can you feel it, oh everybody sees it. How your sweet smile has a way of lighting up a room. Yeah you shine like diamonds in everything you do. Oh love, love, love’s lookin’ good, good, good on you
Lady Antebellum

Cause I’ve been doin’ fine without you, forgettin’ all the love we once knew. And girl I ain’t the one who slammed that door. But now you say you’ve changed your thinkin’ but I ain’t got a heart for breakin’. So go and pick your bags up off my floor, Ooh cause love don’t live here anymore.
Lady Antebellum

Edward: So what happens after he climbs up and rescues her?
Vivian: She rescues him right back.
Pretty Woman

Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love, you will find that you are left holding only yourself
Leo Buscaglia

There are some things that are nothing more than what they are, they’re not meant to last. They just take their place in your heart and make you a little smarter the next time.
Alex & Emma

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.
People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel pain.
Jim Morrison

Up, up and away you take me baby. All for you I’d give it all, ‘cause when I’m thinking of you, I’m flying above the world. How I wish I was drowning in you. I must admit, I’m so in love.
Dave Matthews Band

When I say “I love you,” it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, and how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are.
Joss Whedon

I’ve been sinking through the drain of love. Lift my eyes to skies of up above. Listen to me, this is how I feel. Since I knew you all my thoughts are real. You’re the only one I want to do. Everything’s new, and it’s all ‘cause of you. I’ve been moving ‘cause my heart is true, telling everyone I know about you. All I want to do is make you mine, I said I’d love you honey, anytime.
The 88

If love is a labor, I’ll slave ‘til the end.
Rise Against

You know, when it works, love is pretty amazing. It’s not overrated. There’s a reason for all those songs.
This Lullaby

The more you love someone the more he wants from you and the less you have to give since you’ve already given him your love.
Nikki Giovanni

Love’s just a waste of our energy and this life’s just a waste of our time, so why don’t we get together? We could waste everything tonight.
Jack Johnson

There is nothing sadder in this life than to watch someone you love walk away after they have left you. To watch the distance between your two bodies expand until there is nothing but empty space, and silence.
Sarah Dessen

You spend all your time looking for love yet you feeling nothing even when it’s staring you in the face. I will love again but you, you will spend all your life knowing you turned your back on love and that makes you a hypocrite.
Cruel Intentions

I don’t know why, I’ve always been big on happy endings. You see, to me, the most romantic, beautiful love stories ever were the ones where two people meet, fall in love, and then in fifty, sixty years later one of them dies and then a few days later after that the other one dies because they just can’t bear to live without each other.
The Story of Us

I love you. And not in a friendly way, although I think we’re great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy dog way, although I’m sure that’s what you’ll call it. And it’s not because you’re unattainable. I love you. Very simply, very truly. You’re the epitome of every attribute and quality that I’ve ever looked for in another person.
Chasing Amy

I love you every minute. I love you more than marching bands and cookie-making.
The Other Sister

Oh there’s nothing like a true love to go and make a fool of someone just like before… And right there for a minute, I forgot that you don’t love me anymore.
Tim McGraw

Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ or ‘how very perceptive’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.
Neil Gaiman

Scared to fall in love, afraid to lose so fast. ‘Cause every time I fall in love, it never seems to last.
Vitamin C

This is about knowing the difference between right and wrong, between the truth and a lie. He took that from you. And if you can’t tell the difference, then you can’t trust anyone. And if you can’t trust, you can’t love.
Georgia Rule

It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them
Agatha Christie

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities
Janos Arany

Some people fall in love. I had to crash into it.
How to Deal

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a
multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
1 Peter 4:8-9

I said a lot of really crappy things the other night and I’m sorry about that. I haven’t been a very good friend to you and I’m sorry, ok. The truth is that I’m afraid to be your friend because I’m always gonna want more. But then I got to thinking that I’d rather have you in my life as a friend than not at all. You know, that’s a lie too. I want to take you out on a date. And I don’t care if it’s in the day or at night or whenever as long as it’s a real date. And I want to tell you how beautiful I think you are, inside and out. And I want to have babies with you, and I want to marry you and I love you, I always have.
Just Friends

I’ve gotta say something.. ‘Cause I don’t think I’ve made it clear. I’m in love with you. Powerfully, painfully in love. The things you do, the way you think, the way you move..I get excited every time I’m about to see you. You make me feel like I’ve never felt before in my life. I just thought you might wanna know.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

If I’m away from you for more than an hour, I can’t stop thinking about you. I carry you in my spirit. I pray for you more than I pray for myself. And that, that, that smile. When you smile like that, my world is alright..I am in love with you.
Diary Of a Mad Black Woman

We can do no great things, only small things with great love.
Mother Teresa

I love you. I’ve loved you for nine years, I’ve just been too arrogant and scared to realize it, and… well, now I’m just scared. So, I realize this comes at a very inopportune time but I really have this gigantic favor to ask of you. Choose me. Marry me. Let me make you happy.
My Best Friends Wedding

I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
When Harry Met Sally

I’m not a man to throw words to the wind, when I said I loved you that’s what I meant. And I plan to show you if it takes me the rest of my life.
Blessed Union of Souls

Sometimes I hate how much I love him
But everyday I love him more
Reba Mcentire & Faith Hill

And if there’s no tomorrow, and all we have is here and now, I’m happy just to have you, you’re all the love I need somehow.
The Coors

If I’d have known the way that this would end, if I’d have read the last page first, if I’d have had the strength to walk away, if I’d have known how this would hurt, I would have loved you anyway, I’d do it all the same, not a second I would change, not a touch that I would trade, had I known my heart would break, I’d have loved you anyway.
Trisha Yearwood

So much has changed and so much has happened these years, but still I find you are waiting here. We have a bond that nothing can change… and still I find a peace of mind whenever I hear your name… and if I seem too quiet now, there are no words to show you how I love you.
Toad the Wet Sprocket

They give their hearts to each other, unconditionally. And that’s what true love really is. It’s not this fairy-tale life that never knows pain. But it’s two souls facing it together, and diminishing it, with unconditional love.
One Tree Hill

With every fiber in my being I love you.

Everytime I look at you… I feel better. It shocks me. It knocks my wind out, but it’s true. I don’t have to have sex with you, I’d be happy just look at you from across the room. And even that, anything, any piece of you. And, hopefully, all of you…that’d be the best thing. Because I love you.
Grey’s Anatomy

Ya know I just realized today… I’m in love with you, yes, but I’m in love with the you that I used to know.. you’ve changed too much. All I can do is hope for the real you to come back… and then, maybe then being in love won’t be so bad.
Hollie Seals

I believe in love and lust and sex and romance. I don’t want everything to add up to some perfect equation. I want mess and chaos. I want someone to go crazy out of his mind for me. I want to feel passion and heat and sweat and madness and I want valentines and cupids and all the rest of that crap. I want it all.
The Mirror Has Two Faces

They give their hearts to each other, unconditionally. And that’s what true love really is. It’s not this fairy-tale life that never knows pain. But it’s two souls facing it together, and diminishing it, with unconditional love.
One Tree Hill

As he shook her hand and met those striking emerald eyes, he knew before he’d taken his next breath that she was the one he could spend the rest of his life looking for but never find again.
The Notebook

I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love. And I don’t think that love is here in this expensive suite in this lovely hotel in Paris.
Sex & The City

If only there was a love version of the money-back guarantee. The if you fell hard, and it didn’t work out, your mind would simply erase the experience from your memory and you’d be brand new again, without that wound on your heart or the scar tissue that formed around it.
Zoey Dean, A List

This was love at first sight, love everlasting: a feeling unknown, unhoped for, unexpected–in so far as it could be a matter of conscious awareness; it took entire possession of him, and he understood, with joyous amazement, that this was for life.
Thomas Mann

When you love someone all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
Elizabeth Bowen

I’ve never felt like this before, I’m overwhelmed by an unbelievable amount of hatred for him, yet, I couldn’t be more in love. It’s like I want to throw him out into traffic, then risk my life to save him.
JoAnne Golden

And I did love you, and I still do. Only I didn’t realize it was love, because it was more than love but it wasn’t just some stupid feeling in my stomach like everything else and I’ll never love anyone as much as you, and I hate you. I hate you!
Empire Records

I’m a fool when you smile at me. I’m convinced I get caught up in you and I just can’t resist. I know you lie to me, it just drives me nuts, this one kiss could persuade me to believe your bluff.
Missy Elliot

Well, what aren’t you scared of? You live in this safe little world where no one challenges you and you’re scared shitless to do anything else but defend yourself ‘cause that would mean you’d have to change. You’re afraid that I won’t love you back, and you know what? I’m afraid, too.
Good Will Hunting

Love is not a decision, love is a feeling. If you could decide who you loved it would be a lot easier but a lot less magical.
Mary Pat Michalek

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Jean Anouilh Ardele

Love is a great beautifier.
Louisa May Alcott

Do you ever feel like there’s something missing? Like there’s something that you’ve been waiting for all your life and you wonder if you’ll ever have it? I think love should be so beautiful and powerful…you know, I want to be swept away by love.
Man in the Moon

I love you. There is nothing else to do. Run and I will run with you.
A Knight’s Tale

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us – I can live only wholly with you or not at all – Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits – Yes, unhappily it must be so – You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart – never – never – Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life – Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men – At my age I need a steady, quiet life – can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day – therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once – Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together – Be calm – love me – today – yesterday – what tearful longings for you – you – you – my life – my all – farewell. Oh continue to love me – never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
ever thine
ever mine
ever ours
Ludwig van Beethoven

I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of people would die for Him.
Napoleon Bonaparte

Sometimes people give up too easily. They lose sight of what really matters and they let their pride get in the way of what’s so important: Love. I say this ‘cause I think I gave up too easy once.
Kenny Chesney

To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go.
Mary Oliver

Love is just about the hardest thing to understand. Maybe that’s why there are painters and musicians and poets.
Lois Lowry (Anastasia Krupnik)
