Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever.
The first duty of love is to listen.
Some pray to marry the man they love, my prayer will somewhat vary: I humbly pray to heaven above that I love the man I marry.
A love song is just a caress set to music.
All for love… and nothing for reward.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
Love is… born with the pleasure of looking at each other; it is fed with the necessity of seeing each other; it is concluded with the impossibility of separation!
If you love something, set it free; if it comes back it’s yours, if it doesn’t, it never was.
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart, or burn down your house, you can never tell.
If we deny love that is given to us, if we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater.
True love never dies for it is lust that fades away. Love bonds for a lifetime but lust just pushes away.
To love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person.
Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.
As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.
Sometimes love is stronger than a man’s convictions.
Ursula K. LeGuin
Love doesn’t just sit there like a stone; it has to be made – like bread, remade all the time, made new.
