Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
The first duty of love is to listen.
People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
Everyone says that loves hurts, but that’s not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Everyone confuses these things with love but in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.
Love is when someone doesn’t care about your past because they want to be with you in your future.
It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone you have loved.
Love creates an us, without destroying a me.
The one thing we can never have enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough of is love.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
I love thee with a love that shall not die, till the sun grows cold and the stars grow old.
I don’t need the stars in the night, I found my treasure. All I need is you by my side, so shine forever.
Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Expuery, Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity."
Henry Van Dyke
Distance is to love what wind is to fire: it extinguishes the small but ignites the great.
“It’s impossible,” said pride
“It’s risky,” said experience
“It’s pointless,” said reason
“Give it a try,” whispered the heart.
