Falling in love consists merely in uncorking the imagination and bottling the common-sense.

Fame to be sweet must resound in the ears of those we love, in the atmosphere of the land that will guard our ashes. Fame should hover over our tomb to warm with its heat the chill of death, so that we may not be completely reduced to nothingness, that something of us may survive! (Noli Me Tangere)

Dr. Jose P. Rizal

Fear is the greatest enemy; the father of all suffering, and love is the only cure for humanity’s great afflictions.

Bryant McGill

For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time hatred ceases by love - this is an old rule.

For one human being instinctively feels respect and love for another human being so long as he does not know him well enough to judge him; and that he does not, the craving he feels is evidence.

Thomas Mann, Death in Venice

For the sword outwears its sheath, And the soul wears out the breast, And the heart must pause for breathe, And love itself have rest

Lord Byron

For this is Wisdom to love, to live To take what fate, or the Gods may give. To ask no question, to make no prayer, To kiss the lips and caress the hair, Speed passion's ebb as you greet its flow To have, - to hold - and - in time, - let go

Laurence Hope

Friends will keep you sane, Love could fill your heart, A lover can warm your bed, But lonely is the soul without a mate.

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.

Get not your friends by bare compliments, but by giving them sensible tokens of your love.

Socrates

God, I dont have great faith, but I can be faithful. My belief in you may be seasonal, but my faithfulness will not. I will follow in the way of Christ. I will act as though my life and the lives of others matter. I will love. I have no greater gift to offer than my life. Take it.

Real Live Preacher

God, I offer myself to Thee, to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy power, Thy love and Thy way of life. May I do Thy will always. Amen.

Alcoholics Anonymous Prayer

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Jesus

Hate the sin, love the sinner.

Mahatma Gandhi

Hatred paralyzes life love releases it. Hatred confuses life love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life love illumines it.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Have you even been in love Horrible, isn't it It makes you so vulnrable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like 'maybe we should just be friends' or 'how very perceptive' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

Rose Walker

Have you ever been at sea in a dense fog, when it seemed as if a tangible white darkness shut you in and the great ship, tense and anxious, groped her way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line, and you waited with beating heart for something to happen I was like that ship before my education began, only I was without compass or sounding line, and no way of knowing how near the harbor was. 'Light Give me light' was the wordless cry of my soul, and the light of love shone on me in that very hour.

Helen Keller

Having a place to go - is a home. Having someone to love - is a family. Having both - is a blessing.

Donna Hedges

He who would love much has also much to suffer.

Dr. Jose P. Rizal

Heaven without love : what a hell.

Charles de LEUSSE

Heaven without love : what a hell. (Paradis sans amour : voilà ce qu'est l'enfer)

Charles de LEUSSE

However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.

La Rochefoucauld

I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I don't know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will NOT ask, How many good things have you done in your life, rather he will ask, How much LOVE did you put into what you did

Mother Theresa

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge That myth is more potent than history That dreams are more powerful than facts That hope always triumphs over experience That laughter is the only cure for grief And I believe that love is stronger than death.

Robert

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
