Quotes about love


Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. ~Robert Frost

To do him any wrong was to beget
A kindness from him for his heart was rich-
Of such fine mould that if you sowed therein
The seed of Hate, it blossomed Charity.

“The gratification of the senses soon becomes a very small part of that profound and complicated sentiment which we call Love. Love, on the contrary, is a universal thirst for a communion, not merely of the senses, but of our whole nature, intellectual, imaginative and sensitive. He who finds his antitype, enjoys a love perfect and enduring; time cannot change it, distance cannot remove it; the sympathy is complete.”
Benjamin Disraeli 1804-1881 from “Henrietta Temple”

Lovng can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.
Merie Shain

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond

Love means to love that which is unlovable; or it is no virtue at all.
G K Chesterton

Love is a gift. You can’t buy it, you can’t find it, someone has to give it to you. Learn to be receptive of that gift.
Kurt Langner

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
Victor Hugo

Love gives itself; it is not bought.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get. Only with what you are expected to give … Which is everything.
Katherine Hepburn

Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life.
Jean Paul Richter

We should measure affection, not like youngers by the ardour of its passion, but by its strength and constancy.
