The first and last thing required of genius is the love of truth.

Johann von Goethe

True friends are those who really know you but love you anyway.

Edna Buchanan

Whenever I hear people talking about "liberal ideas," I am always astounded that men should love to fool themselves with empty sounds. An idea should never be liberal; it must be vigorous, positive, and without loose ends so that it may fulfill its divine mission and be productive. The proper place for liberality is in the realm of the emotions.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Now is the winter of our discontent Made glorious summer by this sun of York, And all the clouds that loured upon our house In the deep bosom of the ocean buried. Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths, Our bruised arms hung up for monuments, Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings, Our dreadful marches to delightful measures. Grim-visaged war hath smoothed his wrinkled front And now, instead of mounting barbed steeds To fright the souls of fearful adversaries, He capers nimbly in a lady's chamber To the lascivious pleasing of a lute. But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass I, that am rudely stamped, and want love's majesty To strut before a wanton ambling nymph I, that am curtailed of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deformed, unfinished, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them,-- Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace, Have no delight to pass away the time, Unless to spy my shadow in the sun.

William Shakespeare

He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals.

Benjamin Franklin

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.

Mother Theresa

Love is space and time measured by the heart.

Marcel Proust

Love does not die easily. It is a living thing. It thrives in the face of all of life's hazards, save one -- neglect.

James D. Bryden

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 anything, you risk even more.

Lee Iacocca

The grace of God means something like Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It's for you I created the universe. I love you. There's only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you'll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.

Frederick Buechner

Her Love cuts through my heart so fats that its pain is also enjoyable, that's how sharp her love is for me (Tshegofatso Mosuwe)

Benjamin Mqxekwa

I can think of no better way of redeeming this tragic world today than love and laughter. Too many of the young have forgotten how to laugh, and too many of the elders have forgotten how to love. Would not our lives be lightened if only we could all learn to laugh more easily at ourselves and to love one another

Theodore Hesburgh

Love: two minds without a single thought.

Philip Barry

Friendship is constant in all other things Save in the office and affairs of love Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues Let every eye negotiate for itself And trust no agent.

William Shakespeare

A bad book about the love of God remains a bad book.

Thomas Merton

For aught that I could ever read, Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth.

William Shakespeare

Love is the big booming beat which covers up the noise of hate.

Margaret Cho

Because he once wrote, "We must love one another or die," he can command me to follow him.

E.M. Forster

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God-the rest will be given.

Mother Theresa

There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

There can be no real fight between a tiger and a chicken; between the love and the man; between the strong and the weak!

Mehmet Murat ildan

'Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.

Bertrand Russell

'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies runs with one, walks gravely with another turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame it wounds one, another it kills like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning for there is no force able to resist it.

Miguel de Cervantes

'Tis the most tender part of love, each other to forgive.

John Sheffield

'True love' isn't so much a dreamy feeling that you have as it is an enduring commitment to give sacrificially --even, or perhaps especially, when you don't feel like it.

William R. Mattox, Jr.
