Being in a couple is about learning from one another.  Don’t forget that learning implies growth; it requires  time and patience, and it involves making mistakes  before “getting it right.” And, of course, there’s  no end to the learning. What have you learned  about your partner in the last week? Sit down and have a conversation this weekend, and don’t stop talking  until you’ve both discovered something new about each other.

Countless words, nor countless actions  could ever define my feelings for you.  True love defies definition.

Courage. It takes courage! To have a healthy love relationship you must take a leap of faith. The faith is in the leap; the leap into the unknown. In that moment you decide. With all the love you possess as your support, you make the decision for change in the presence of fear. In doing so, fear goes away. The miracle of the adventure lies in living life in the leap! Two hearts - committed to be true to the other - will carry one another safely to the other side.

Fear? What is there to fear in love? Love is the very reason we live. To fear love is to lose all sense of living, and if we cannot love, then why have we been put here? Fearing love is like being afraid of breathing. It's not something to be scared of. It's so natural that no one can resist

In a sense, a great love relationship lives on the tip of your tongue. Things go well because you both say so. . . and because of what each of you do. The thoughts you have about yourself, your love partner and your love relationship often end up in the words you speak in your relationship. Words can never be recalled. Once out there. . . they do their intended work; interpreted however they may be by your love partner. The words you speak determine what shows up in your relationship. Relationships cannot be truly great and utterly incredible unless you make internal changes in the way you think and take caution of the words you speak.

In a whispered moment of love say, "I've never felt more in love with you than right now."

Indifference is like water to a fire. The flame of love  grows dim with indifference to your love partner's needs.

In healthy love relationships we neither lead nor follow. We walk hand in hand, side by side. When it is appropriate, we can, without fear, let go for a while, always being nearby to love and to share. Love is no tug-of-war. We trust and respect our love partner giving them the freedom to be who they are, always with our love and best wishes.

In life, actions speak louder than words, but in love, the eyes do.

In life, there are many roads, and there is one known as love.  When you come to the end of this  road, you have found true love.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything and two minus one equals nothing.  -- Mignon Mclaughlin

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye... -- Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

It is the mistaken belief that you must push your love relationship in the direction you think it should go that keeps you in a strained and unhappy relationship with it. Reality has its own effortless course,  and you can either embrace its way or struggle endlessly with your way.

It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it  will not be created for years or even generations.  -- Khalil Gibran

It may take a lifetime to find true love, but when you do, you will have an eternity to share it.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,  an hour to like someone and a day to love someone - but takes a lifetime to forget someone.

It is astonishing how little one feels alone, when one loves

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly what is essential is invisible to the eye.  -- Antoine de Saint Exupery

It's better to have gained memories from a love, then to have never had the chance, for memories remain in the heart.

I will greatly miss you, especially your presence in my life. Now my place in your book of life is gone and it is time to move on. So as time goes by, and there are more good-byes I hope that you remember me and the thoughts of our 'time'.

I wish I could keep you right in my heart and feed you my love and passion for rest of my life.

I wish you could live my life for just a moment. Then you would you see the difference you mean to me.

I would give up my life if I could command, one smile of your eyes and one touch of your hand.

Joy is love exalted; peace is love in response; long-suffering is love enduring; gentleness is love in society; goodness is love in action; faith is love on the battlefield; meekness is love in tough situations; and temperance is love in training --D. L. Moody

Just as a flower is not the same as a tiny bud, we are not the same as when we first fell in love. Our love has grown more beautiful with time.

Just because we know something doesn't mean anything. Something can never really mean anything until we do something with it. We must do something - whatever it takes - to make our relationships the relationships we love being in. We must always carefully consider what action to take. Action without thought is only thoughtless action. That rarely works. Knowing this does not mean our relationships will always be great. We have choice. Every choice has a consequence. The dilemma is this: there are two people. That means we have two people making choices and there are a multitude of choices each of us could make. Each love partner is only and always responsible for their own choices. Relationships are individual projects first - the one with ourselves - and mutually beneficial projects second - the one with ourselves and our lover. Taking responsibility for our own stuff is a wonderful gift we give ourselves and our love partner. Relationships take our constant attention; every day and every minute. It is when we forget this that problems begin

Kiss me and you shall see stars, love me and I'll give them to you.

Life is too short to talk about love...... just feel it.

Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding the third.

Life is the flower of which love is the honey.  --Victor Hugo

Life is water and love is a river.

Life, the gift of nature Love, the gift of life A Kiss, the gift of Love

Live today as if you have a thousand years in which to live and plan .. but cherish today and your loved ones as if this day were your last .. remember those who love consider your life essential to their living ..

Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves. -- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Love and hate are an equal emotion, but to hate is to live a dead life and to love it to live a dream.

Love is like a flame, beautiful if controlled, dangerous if not.

Vincent Van Gogh

Many of us seem content being passive witnesses to love. convinced that since we were born for love, it should present no problems. As soon as love brings discomfort or appears to make demands of us, our instinct is to withdraw, convinced that we were not meant to struggle.

No one said love was easy. It is a constant search replete with it's share of confusion, frustration and despair. If it is comfort we seek, we might best center solely upon ourselves where we can be master, hindered neither by conflict nor the need to compromise. But as long as we bring others into our lives, we can be assured of a certain degree of conflict.

Oh, what fun to make great music together! However. . . no matter how carefully we work together to play the right love notes, our relationship sometimes plays sour notes; we strike a wrong chord. Love, commitment and loving conversation enables us to make music together in a way that helps us stay in tune with one another. Committed lovers listen for the music in words that come from the heart. The music of the heart is the nourishment of love. When two hearts make music together, it's as if the angels sing. Take care to always be singing the same song. 

Once in a while, the gift of love will come to us  in full blossom, and we will take hold of it. If  love chooses to leave then set it free. It would  surely come back if it's meant for you. Just be glad that it came to live for a moment in your life.

Once you find your true love, your heart will know it because it will always leave a feeling  inside of you that never goes away.

Only love can be divided endlessly and still not diminish.

Our love is the second most treasured thing in my life, you are the first.

Our heart is the driving force in our life and the mind is the brake.

Pains of love be sweeter far than all other pleasures are  -- John Dryden

Passionate love is a quenchless thirst.  -- Kahlil Gibran

Passion is the essence of the soul, caressing the mind... touching the heart... to feel passion is to feel life...... there is nothing else like it....

Perfect love casteth out fear. -- I John 4:18

Put away the book, the description, the tradition, the authority, and take the journey of self-discovery. Love, and don't be caught in opinions and ideas about what love is or should be.  When you love, everything will come right. Love has its own action. Love, and you will know the blessings of it. Keep away from the authority who tells you what love is and what it is not. No authority knows and he who knows cannot tell. Love, and there is understanding.

Rarely is there a time when it is appropriate to withhold relevant communication in a love relationship. Communication is too important to take casually. Say what you mean. Say what you feel in a loving way and say it nevertheless. When you say what you know needs to be said, you will never have to worry about saying the wrong thing. 

Real tears are not those that fall from the eyes and cover the face,  but those that fall from the heart and cover the soul.

Remember that Great Love and Great Achievements involve Great Risk 

Resist being afraid to reveal your limitations to your partner. Yes, it's scary, and you are now a team. Your partner will almost  always be the most dependable, the first in line to care, and the first to help, if help is requested. Often all that is needed is someone  who will listen. First, it is okay to make yourself vulnerable.  Next, working together on strengthening limitations develops character. It promotes unity by creating a common bond of  sharing that helps each other be the best they can be for themselves and for the relationship.

Romantic love is a passionate-spiritual-emotional-sexual attachment between a man and a woman that reflects a high regard for the value of each other's person. -- Nathaniel Branden

Seduction of the mind leads to the surrender of heart, body and soul. Your whisper I hear in my ear, your kiss I feel in my heart, your touch I feel in my Soul.......

Self-disclosure demands some risk of getting hurt. Your demonstration of courage, that is. . . revealing your true self to your love partner, in an atmosphere of unconditional love and acceptance, can open up new conversations that  will support further disclosure in the most  sensitive areas of your relationship, perhaps in the areas that count the most. 

Speak softly my love, hold me close against your heart... because my life is yours...

Softness of a precious love, Gentle touch so rare, A memory that I embrace, In every day we share

So long as we love, we serve. So long as we are loved by others I would almost say we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.  --Robert Louis Stevenson

So many times I thought I would never find someone to love me the way I needed to be loved. Then you came into my life and showed me what true love really is!

Some have a lifetime, some just a day. Love isn't something you measure that way. Nothings ever forever.  Forever is a lie. All we have is between hello and goodbye.

Some love lasts a lifetime. True love lasts forever.

Some people say that when you are in love, you must always hold hands. But when it's true love, you don't need to because you just know that the other hand will always be there.

Sometimes it's a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and  still be fascinated by their presence.  -- David Byrne

Sometimes it's hard to love someone because you're so afraid of losing them. -- Jean Zheng

Sometimes the thing you want the most in life is the hardest thing to get. Stop trying so hard and just maybe it will be easier to receive.

Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away;  And all the things I want to say can find no voice.  Then, in silence, I can only hope my eyes will speak my heart.   -- Robert Sexton

Somewhere there's someone who dreams of your smile, And finds in your presence that life is worth while, So when you are lonely, remember it's true: Somebody, somewhere is thinking of you.

So this is who you are. And the rest of  my life I dedicate to you. My love will go on just as long as the river flows. -- Bee Gees

SO WHAT IS LOVE? So what is love?  If thou wouldst know The human heart alone can tell: Two minds with but a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one. And whence comes Love?  Like morning bright Love comes without thy call. And how dies Love?  A spirit bright, Love never dies at all. -- Maria Lovell

Stimulate the heart to love,  and all other virtues will rise of their own accord -- W. T. Ussery

Suddenly, quietly, you realize that - from this moment forth - you will no longer walk through this life alone. Like a new sun this awareness arises within you, freeing you from fear, opening your life. It is the beginning of  love, and the end of all that came before.  -- Robert Frost 

Take away the trials, take away the pain, take away the sorrow, take away the pain, take away the emptiness, take away the sorrow and you will find true love.

Take the words 'I love you'. Now multiply them  by infinity and take them to the depths of forever and you will still only have a glimpse of how much I really do love you.

Take time to reconnect:  Sometimes two people just need to take an emotional breather, and reconnect. You also know what you have is special when you are together, and there is nothing that you can not talk about. Openness and honesty is important. Talking and cuddling is very nice, and another good connector is when you just look at each other, and stroke each others faces, etc. 

The Air.. The Sea.. You & Me .. What more could there ever be ..

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. --Helen Keller

The best proof of love is trust -- Dr. Joyce Brothers

The chains of love are never binding as when the links are made of gold. -- Royall Tyler

The colors red and pink are associated with love. Red roses are given to show love, Chocolate candies, fancy scents and silky underthings have also been given in love.

The commitment that supports a healthy partnership is the commitment each has to the other to always be working on the relationship; a commitment to always be in a dance with one another, showering each other with compassion and understanding. 

The conclusion is always the same: Love is the most powerful and still the most unknown energy of the world, so when we come to the last moment of this lifetime, and we look back across it, the only thing that's going to matter is "what was the quality of our love?"

The course of true love never did run smooth. -- William Shakespeare

The deep joy we take in the company of people with whom we have just recently fallen in love is un-disguisable.  --John Cheever

The difference between friendship and love is how much you can hurt each other.  --Ashleigh Brilliant

The distance between the dawns is far greater when one's love is lost... --Vicki Barnett

The fire of love will not burn on alone. It must be  watched carefully. If we are to keep the fire of  love alive, we must do whatever is necessary to keep the fuel for the flames replenished whatever the cost. Loves' fire feeds off the energy we put into keeping it burning! 

The first time ever I saw your face, I thought the sun rose in your eyes and the moon and the stars were the gifts u gave to the dark and the empty skies.

The girl in the omnibus had one of those faces of marvelous beauty which are seen casually in the streets but never among one's friends. Where do these women come from? Who marries them? Who knows them?

The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it… you and you alone make me feel that I am alive… Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.  --George Moore

The loving are the daring  -- Bayard Taylor

The most beautiful thing in this life cannot be seen, even touched but felt with heart.

The most intimate kiss between two lovers is not the kiss of their lips, but the kiss of their tears.

The most painful love there is. is the love that is left unknown,
A love that cannot be expressed, Affection left un-shown

The one person you can truly love is often right in front of you.

The only genuine love worthy of the name is unconditional. --John Powell

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved  -- George Sand

There's only one thing greater than my fear- that is my love. My love will always conquer my fear- but it can't do it immediately. It needs the full force of my love to do it and it takes days for that to emerge out of its dark hiding places.  --John Middleton Murry

The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart.

The same wind snuffs candles yet kindles fires; so, where absence kills a little love, it fans a great one. -- Francois , duc de La Rochefoucauld

The secret of love is seeking variety in your life together, and never letting routine chords dull the melody of your romance.

The truth is that there is only one terminal dignity - love. And the story of a love is not important - what is important is that one is capable of love. It is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity.  -- Helen Hayes

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost. -- G. H. Chesterton

The way you let your hand rest in mine, my bewitching Sweetheart, fills me with happiness. It is the perfection of confiding love.

Though we may think we know each other well, when we neglect feelings in a relationship, we neglect the deepest and most intimate part of ourselves .. sharing feelings leads us to great closeness because feelings are very personal, the most intimate part of us. The sharing of a deep feeling is the greatest gift a human being can give to another ..  -- Fr. Chuck Gallagher

Through diligent and creative love, a man and a woman can fit like a hand in a glove each finger in its own space, together creating a warm handclasp.

Treat your lady like a Queen. Adopt the attitude that you are going to treat her so well that every man that she ever meets pales in comparison. If you ever break up she will forever remember that she is settling for second best. If she stays by your side she will be the envy of all who know her.

True intimacy is the opening of one soul to another.  No gift on earth could compare with it, for it touches us more profoundly than our imagination can envision.  When two people share their lives, freely, openly, without  reservation, it is as if each had become complete. -- Robert Sexton

True love is when you love a person more than you love yourself.

True love is when you love a person with no particular reason.

True love is when you're still dancing, long after the music has stopped.

True Love, like many things, can only be seen in the eyes of the beholder. It cannot be jealous, proud, or anxious; it is what is found in the depths of your heart, and longs only for one who's heart longs for the same things as your own.

True love only comes once in a life time, so take it as it goes and enjoy every bit of it while it is still burning strong.

True love should be lived like an imperfect circle that has its bumps but never ends.

True love will be remembered by all, yet not all will know of true love.

True secret of love - Never demand, always give.

Two love partners, standing firm - together - can accomplish anything the two of them desire. The creative movement of mutual commitment can produce anything. . . joy, peace of mind, more love, great sex, understanding. . . anything! The unity of two, in agreement, does the work of angels. 

Two souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one  -- John Keats

Until I truly loved, I was alone. -- Caroline Norton

Watching you walk out of my life doesn't make me bitter or cynical about love, but it rather makes me wonder; if I so much wanted to be with the wrong one, how wonderful it will be when the right one comes along.

We all love best not those who offend us least,  nor those who have done most for us, but those who make it most easy for us to forgive them.  -- Samuel Butler

We are shaped and fashioned by what we love -- Goethe

We come to love not by finding a perfect person but by learning to see a imperfect person perfectly.

We get pretty much what we expect to get in our relationship. What we expect to get is what we focus on. If it turns out good, we should not be disappointed. If it turns out bad, we should not be disappointed. We got what we expected. What else did we expect to get? Perhaps we should learn to be in a relationship with no expectations. In a spirit of unity, only and always work together, all the time, to create the best relationship we can. All the time. With intention. In a spirit of unity. All the time. If we could do that, maybe we wouldn't have to be concerned about expectations when they surface; we would know things were always going to be as good as the people working on them. Perhaps that is why it is important to have a great relationship with ourselves. When we can do a great relationship with ourselves, we can do a great relationship with two people. When we reach that place, we can have a great relationship with someone else because we already know how to be in a great relationship. . . with ourselves!

We love because it's the only true adventure. --Nikki Giovanni

We should all be so lucky to have someone who will never let us go. The ultimate legacy is to leave behind someone who will love you forever. -- from the Television Series Ally McBeal

We've got this great gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it is going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.  -- John Lennon, 1969

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?  -- George Eliot

What is first love worth, except to prepare for a second? What does second love bring? Only regret for the first.

What is love? Love is two vowels, O & E. Love is two consonants, L & V. Love is two fools, you and me.

What's a relationship without a little risk and faith?

What's meant to be will always find a way.

When a “me” and a “you” decide to become a couple, a new entity called “Us” comes into being. " "Practice “Couple Thinking”: View yourself as a member of a couple first. Think of “us” and “we”before “me” and “I.”

When disagreements arise, instead of being impatient, jumping to the wrong conclusions, and running away, stay and  keep talking until you reach the core of the issue. Listen in a nonjudgmental, neutral way, with an open heart. -- Susie and Otto Collins

When I fell in love with you, I knew I had come to the end of a long journey... You are the love I've been searching for all my life. And now that I've found you, I hope to share all my tomorrows with you. 

When I first saw you I was scared to talk to you, when I first talked to you I was scared to touch you, when I first touched you I was scared to kiss you, when I first kissed you I was scared to love you, now that I love you I'm scared to lose you

When in life and love, reach for the moon.  Even if you miss you will land among the stars.

When it comes to Love, there is no formula to show someone you care. Flowers, candies, a home-cooked meal; A hand-made card, even a simple hug; All are wonderful ways, to show someone how much you care

When I was little, I wondered who made rainbows, why flowers opened, why the moon smiled. My world was full of magic and miracles.  When I grew up, I forgot all about that... until now.
Suddenly I'm like a kid again, And my world is full of magic and miracles... all because of you. 

When love and skill work together expect a miracle -- John Ruskin

When love reigns the impossible may be attained. -- Indian Proverb

When relationships are fun they are easier to be appreciated. It takes steady work and a specific intention to have them be that way. It takes commitment, open communications and much love for one another. We must plan to have fun together. Playing and having fun together isn't so much what we do. It's how we feel about who we are with and what we do. 

When the music whispers in your heart & you hear the distant rhythm of a beating drum close your eyes.. listen .. & let the music surround you .. drawing you to it .. then let your heart lead you .. for the music is yours .. the dance is yours .. and the path is yours to follow

When the one man loves the one woman and the one woman loves the one man, the very angels leave heaven and come sit in that house and sing for joy. --Brahama

When you are in love there are no words to be spoken to describe it. But the heart and the soul know the words and those are the words that mean the most. The unspoken words of Love.

When you experience love for the first time,  real love, you live a new life;  one that you never knew existed before.

When you give someone your heart, you're giving them your life; When you give someone  your soul, you're giving them 'forever'

When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out   -- Elizabeth Bowen

Why is it that we spend a lifetime trying to define what love is... what love means... yet we know in an instant if we are in it?

With true love comes no doubts, no jealousy, and no worries.

With a kiss I'll say goodbye and with  tears in my eyes, I speak the words of forgiveness waiting to be yours at the right time!

Within you, I lose myself.  Without you, I find myself Searching to be lost again /// Within you I lose myself. Without you I find myself wanting to become lost again.

With love you can do impossible things if you follow your heart.

You are my friend, my love, my forever valentine.  --Flavia Weddn

You are my love, my life, my world.  --Michelle Lozada

You are the stars at night in all their splendor; You are the daytime at rainbows end. You are my happiness so sweet and tender;   You are my soul mate, my love, and my best friend. --RosaLinda Buchner Graziano

You are the stars in my wishing sky and I will wish on them every night you and I are apart, until we are together again.

You can admire a women for her beauty, but you can only respect and love a women for her heart.

You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. -- Suzanne Warner Pierot

You do not stumble on a great relationship by accident. You experience it on purpose. It doesn't just happen. A great relationship is developed intentionally. It is created by mutual commitment and by nurturing it with loving thoughts, open communication, the attention given to it, intentional activity and a mutual decision for constructive action. It becomes whatever two love partners decide it to be. It is the result of two dancing hearts being in step with one another; dancing to the same rhythm; connected; communicating words of love in a dance of togetherness

You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her. -- John Donne

You have my heart, and that's a permanent lock.

You have not truly lived your life, until you've  shared the depths of it with some one you love.

You know its love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you're not part of their happiness. -- Jean Zheng

Your absence has not taught me how to be alone, it merely has shown that when together we cast a single shadow on this wall. --Doug Fetherling

You're the sunshine of my life, Your absence causes a total eclipse of my heart.

Your love is my inspiration; I find the purity of your love in every color I place on canvas. Without your love, they remain merely colors, but with your love, they become the masterpiece of our life together.

Your love keeps discovering new places to take me.

Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me.  --Sarah Bernhardt

You should sing like no ones listening,  dance like no ones watching, and love like its never gonna hurt!

Young lovers seek perfection...old lovers learn the art of sewing shreds together and seeing beauty in a multitude of patches... -- "How To Make An American Quilt"

You've gotta dance like no one is watching and love like its never going to hurt.

You were that missing piece from my life, and now that I have you I am complete.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived, are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love. --Henry Drummond
