Song Of A Dream

ONCE in the dream of a night I stood
Lone in the light of a magical wood,
Soul-deep in visions that poppy-like sprang;
And spirits of Truth were the birds that sang,
And spirits of Love were the stars that glowed,
And spirits of Peace were the streams that flowed
In that magical wood in the land of sleep.


Lone in the light of that magical grove,
I felt the stars of the spirits of Love
Gather and gleam round my delicate youth,
And I heard the song of the spirits of Truth;
To quench my longing I bent me low
By the streams of the spirits of Peace that flow
In that magical wood in the land of sleep.

Sarojini Naidu

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

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.

Paulo Coelho

To be capable of steady friendship or lasting love, are the two greatest proofs, not only of goodness of heart, but of strength of mind.

William Hazlitt

I believe love is primarily a choice and only sometimes a feeling. If you want to feel love, choose to love and be patient.

Real Live Preacher

To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage, because we don't want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt.

Madonna

The wise are wise only because they love. The fool are fools only because they think they can understand love.

Paulo Coelho

Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship - never.

Charles Caleb Colton

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.

William Shakespeare

Love isn't a decision. It's a feeling. If we could decide who we loved, it would be much simpler, but much less magical.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone

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

Love is everything it's cracked up to be…It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.

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

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