To love is not a passive thing. To love is active voice. When I love I do something, I function, I give. I do not love in order that I may be loved back again, but for the creative joy of loving. And every time I do so love I am freed, at least a little, by the outgoing of love, from enslavement to that most intolerable of master, myself.

Bernard Iddings Bell

We are behaving like people without compassion and love for the most vulnerable section of society. The children of the universe are without a spokesperson, they are voiceless…We are all touched by the atrocities committed against children: sexual, physical abuse, child slave labor, educational neglect. We feel ashamed. Angry. Appalled. But there is no action…No action.

Michael Jackson

We don't love qualities, we love persons sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.

Thomas Mann

We lavish on animals the love we are afraid to show to people. They might not return it or worse, they might.

Mignon McLaughlin

We suffer because we feel we are giving more than we receive. We suffer because our love is going unrecognized. We suffer because we are unable to impose our own rules.

Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I sat down and wept

When you read about a car crash in which two or three youngsters are killed, do you pause to dwell on the amount of love and treasure and patience parents poured into bodies no longer suitable for open caskets

Jim

When you whisper, I sink, and when you kiss me, I fly. I let you pull me in any direction you choose. My very body was brought down to your will, and I continue to this day and will continue to the end of my life. Why? Because I love you. I love everything you do to me, not pysically but emotionally.

Damion Core

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 von Goethe

You are my love. My source of joy. You are the joy. You are the love. Every chamber of your heart is like a flower, blooming and blooming, spreading love with the wind of thoughts. I am floating in those divinely pure thoughts and feeling the happiness. When I am in deep love, I gain the power of love, when I feel beloved, I feel divine happiness.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

You can't make someone love you, and while you try, you lose the people who really care.

Unknown

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

Mother Theresa

Love is spiritual; it is something that will never be fully comprehendible through science or through written word, love at its core is an emotion. It is as intangible as faith, you must have it to understand it, or believe it exists to seek it.

William J. Starkey

Pleasure of love lasts but a moment, Pain of love lasts a lifetime.

Bette Davis

Thus, never mind your challenges. 13. Always smile, laugh and share all you have with someone else/others. Beause, you've got to be doing that. Never forget, givers never lack. 14. Conclusively, dare to believe in God almighty and do believe he can do all things. Besides, believe in your own self i.e. be self confident. For, it is expected of you. That's just a piece of advice and words of encouragement for you.

Emeasoba George

Ferris Cameron has never been in love -- at least, nobody's ever been in love with him. If things don't change for him, he's gonna marry the first girl he lays, and she's gonna treat him like shit, because she will have given him what he has built up in his mind as the end-all, be-all of human existence. She won't respect him, 'cause you can't respect somebody who kisses your ass. It just doesn't work.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Love is an attachment to another self. Humor is a form of self-detachment -- a way of looking at one's existence, one's misfortune, or one's discomfort. If you really love, if you really know how to laugh, the result is the same you forget yourself.

Claude Roy

Well, now, this is exactly my case. I am in love; and my sweetheart is LIBERTY. Be that heavenly nymph my companion, and these wilds and .Woods shall have charms beyond London and Paris in slavery. To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me ; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and 'pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their lucious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of ‘brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. “This, sir, is What I long for.” p. 155 ... On his return to Georgetown, he was asked by colonel Watson, why he looked so serious? I have cause, sir,” said he, “to look serious.” Watson "What! has general Marion refused to treat?” "No, sir.” “Well, then, has old Washington defeated sir Henery Clinton, and broke up our army ?" " No, sir, not that neither ; but worse.” “Ah! what can be worse?” "Why, sir, I have seen an American general and his officers, without pay, and almost without clothes, living on roots and drinking water ; and all for LIBERTY! What chance have we against such men!” It is said colonel Watson was not much obliged to him for this speech. But the young ofiicer was so struck with Marion’s sentiments, that he never rested until he threw up his commission, and retired from the service.

Alanis Morissette

Excellent wretch Perdition catch my soul, But I do love thee and when I love thee not, Chaos is come again.

William Shakespeare

The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.

Socrates

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
