The greatest happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
I love thee, I love but thee With a love that shall not die Till the sun grows cold And the stars grow old.
True love's the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven: It is not fantasy's hot fire, Whose wishes soon as granted fly; It liveth not in fierce desire.
To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.
Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.
The truth [is] that there is only one terminal dignity�love. And the story of a love is not important�what is important is that one is capable of love. It is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity.
Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.
The chemist who can extract from his heart's elements compassion, respect, longing, patience, regret, surprise, and forgiveness and compound them into one can create that atom which is called love.
True love cannot be found where it truly does not exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does.
Love conquers all.
True love begins when nothing is looked for in return.
So it’s true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love.
True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. If you hear bells, get your ears checked.
You only need one man to love you. But him to love you free like a wildfire, crazy like the moon, always like tomorrow, sudden like an inhale and overcoming like the tides. Only one man and all of this.
They say a good love is one that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you can't stop running simply because you keep on burning everything that you touch! I say that's a good love; one that burns and flies, and you run with it!
He's not your prince charming if he doesn't make sure you know that you're his princess.
How far should a person go in the name of true love?
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 above 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.
Loving someone and having them love you back is the most precious thing in the world.
