The only way is to teach with love, which requires looking beyond what seems, and remembering we create with our judgements.

Bryant McGill

The only way of knowing a person is to love them without hope.

Walter Benjamin

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

Elie Wiesel

The pain of leaving those you've grown to love is only the prelude to an understanding of yourself and others.

The past is a source of knowledge, and the future is a source of hope. Love of the past implies faith in the future.

Stephen Ambrose

The people of the United States, perhaps more than any other nation in history, love to abase themselves and proclaim their unworthiness, and seem to find refreshment in doing so... That is a dark frivolity, but still frivolity.

Robertson Davies

The perfect love affair is one which is conducted entirely by post.

George Bernard Shaw

The person who does not work for the love of work but only for money is not likely to make money nor to find much fun in life.

Charles M. Schwab

The pleasure of love is in loving.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

The pleasure of love is in the loving and there is more joy in the passion one feels than in that which one inspires.

La Rochefoucauld

The postmodern reply to the modern consists of recognizing that the past, since it cannot really be destroyed, because its destruction leads to silence, must be revisited: but with irony, not innocently. I think of the postmodern attitude as that of a man who loves a very cultivated woman and knows he cannot say to her, I love you madly, because he knows that she knows (and that she knows that he knows) that these words have already been written by Barbara Cartland. Still, there is a solution. He can say, As Barbara Cartland would put it, I love you madly.

Umberto Eco

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

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The priesthood is a marriage. People often start by falling in love, and they go on for years without realizing that love must change into some other love which is so unlike it that it can hardly be recognized as love at all.

The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, an almost fanatical love of justice, and the desire for personal independence - these are the features of Jewish tradition that make me thank my stars that I belong to it.

Albert Einstein, The World As I See It (autobio, 1934)

The really potent part of love is that it allows you to carry around beliefs about yourself that make you feel special, desirable, precious, innately good. Your lover couldn't have seen these qualities in you, even temporarily, if they weren't part of your essential being.

Martha Beck

Elbert Hubbard

The reason people sweat is so they won't catch fire when making love.

Don Rose

The reason why all men honor love is because it looks up, and not down aspires and not despairs.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbors as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant of others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.

Eric Hoffer
