James Thurber and E. B. White
Love is the strange bewilderment which overtakes one person on account of another person.
The most difficult thing to explain in life is the simplest truth called love.
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.
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.
Helen Gurley Brown
The prerequisite for making love is to like someone enormously.
True love stories never have endings.
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.
Leanna L. Bartram
True love is when your heart and your minds are saying the same thing.
Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another’s personhood.
Hamilton Wright Mabie
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
Love is a gift, not an obligation, follow your heart and always trust the person you love.
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.
What’s meant to be will always find a way.
To be able to say how much you love is to love but little.
Elizabeth Barret Browning
Whoso loves, believes the impossible.
