Life has taught us that love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

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

Friedrich Nietzsche

Life doesn't require that we be the best, only that we try our best.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that one is loved; loved for oneself, or better yet, loved despite oneself.

Victor Hugo

To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.

Bertrand Russell

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.

Bruce Lee

The course of true love never did run smooth.

William Shakespeare

Love is a trap. When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows.

Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.

But love is blind and lovers cannot see The pretty follies that themselves commit; For if they could, Cupid himself would blush To see me thus transformed to a boy.

Jeanne Moreau

The believer is happy, the doubter is wise.

Irish Proverb

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs, Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes, Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers’ tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, A choking gall and a preserving sweet.

William Shakespeare

One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.

Paulo Coelho

Erica Jong

Sonnet 132: Thine eyes I love, and they, as pitying me

Thine eyes I love, and they, as pitying me,
Knowing thy heart torment me with disdain,
Have put on black, and loving mourners be,
Looking with pretty ruth upon my pain.
And truly not the morning sun of heaven
Better becomes the grey cheeks of the east,
Nor that full star that ushers in the even
Doth half that glory to the sober west
As those two mourning eyes become thy face.
O, let it then as well beseem thy heart
To mourn for me since mourning doth thee grace,
And suit thy pity like in every part.
Then will I swear beauty herself is black,
And all they foul that thy complexion lack.

William Shakespeare

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse

Paulo Coelho

I find as I grow older that I love those most whom I loved first.
