Love quotes

The principle of liberty and equality, if coupled with mere selfishness, will make men only devils, each trying to be independent that he may fight only for his own interest. And here is the need of religion and its power, to bring in the principle of benevolence and love to men.

- John Randolph

In love, unlike most other passions, the recollection of what you have had and lost is always better than what you can hope for in the future.

- Stendhal, Henri B.

The spiritualization of sensuality is called love: it is a great triumph over Christianity.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich

What's terrible is to pretend that the second-rate is first-rate, that you don't need love when you do or that you like your work when you know quite well you're capable of better.

- Lessing, Doris

Old people love to give good advice to console themselves for no longer being able to set a bad example.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

But those rare souls whose spirit gets magically into the hearts of men, leave behind them something more real and warmly personal than bodily presence, an ineffable and eternal thing. It is everlasting life touching us as something more than a vague, recondite concept. The sound of a great name dies like an echo; the splendor of fame fades into nothing; but the grace of a fine spirit pervades the places through which it has passed, like the haunting loveliness of mignonette.

- Thurber, James

Brother, said the abbot, "make ready for me the divine elements, that I may consecrate them." And he asking the reason therefor, the saint replied, "That I may partake thereof with all my brethren before I depart hence. For know assuredly that within the seventh day I shall migrate to the celestial mansions. For this night stood by me in a dream those two women whom I love, and for whom I pray, the one clothed in a white, the other in a ruby-coloured garment, and holding each other by the hand, who said to me, 'That life after death is not such a one as you fancy: come, therefore, and behold what it is like.'"

- Hypatia, chap. xxx. 1852.

- Ambrose Bierce

Fantastic tyrant of the amorous heart. How hard thy yoke, how cruel thy dart. Those escape your anger who refuse your sway, and those are punished most, who most obey.

- Prior, Matthew

Once you figure out who you are and what you love about yourself, I think it all kinda falls into place."

- Jennifer Aniston

It is remarkable how similar the pattern of love is to the pattern of insanity.

- Andy & Larry Wachowski

You are my lover and I am your mistress and kingdoms and empires and governments have tottered and succumbed before now to that mighty combination.

- Trefusis, Violet

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of.

- Benjamin Franklin

The power of love, as the basis of a State, has never been tried.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.

- Amiel, Henri Frederic

Love is shown in your deeds, not in your words.

- Cummings, Fr. Jerome

And were an epitaph to be my story I'd have a short one ready for my own. I would have written of me on my stone: I had a lover's quarrel with the world.

- Frost, Robert
