Love quotes

So that you will never be whole again."

You can't make a heart love somebody
You can lead a heart to love,
But you can't make it fall."

                                The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.


Better never to have met you
                                          In my dream
                                    Than to wake and reach
                                For hands that are not there.

                                     - Otomo No Yakamochi

I have loved to the point of madness; 
                                that which is called madness,

                              is the only sensible way to love.

                                          - F. Sagan

Love without reason lasts the longest.

Making love with you
                                  Is like drinking sea water.
                                       The more I drink
                                    The thirstier I become,
                               Until nothing can slake my thirst
                                 But to drink the entire sea.
                                         - Marichiko

If you say my eyes are beautiful,
                             it's because they're looking at you.

If you can't hear my heartbeat, you aren't close enough.

  Seduce my mind and you can have my body,
                             find my soul and I'm yours forever.

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you,
                           I could walk through my garden forever.

                                       -Kindra Piturro

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to

A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.

"Love has no other desire but to fulfull itself.
                                  To melt and be like a running brook
                                   that sings its melody to the night.
                                 To wake at dawn with a winged heart
                               and give thanks for another day of loving."
                                    Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)

And so I have come to doubt
All that I once held as true.
I stand alone without beliefs
The only truth I know is you." -Simon&Garfunkel

But love is unreasonable.

 Cause every night I fall, Every night I call your name..."

I am insane and you are my insanity

Don't walk behind me, I might not lead. Don't walk before me, I might not follow.

                    from the very depths of the earth
                    I would hear your footsteps.
                    - - - -Benito Perez Galdos

I shall go the way of the open sea,
                    To the lands I knew before you came,
                    And the cool ocean breezes shall blow from me
                    The memory of your name.
                    - - - -Laurence Hope

I want to die while you love me,
                    While yet you hold me fair,
                    While laughter lies upon my lips,
                    And lights are in my hair.
                    - - - - Georgia Douglas Johnson

If I could take your troubles
                    I would toss them into the sea,
                    But all these things I'm finding
                    Are impossible for me.
                    I cannot build a mountain
                    Or catch a rainbow fair,
                    But let me be what I know best,
                    A friend that is always there.
                    - - - -Khahlil Gibran "A True Friend"

Love me sweet
                    With all thou art
                    Feeling, thinking, seeing;
                    Love me in the
                    Lightest part,
                    Love me in full
                    - - - - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Music I heard with you was more than music,
                    And bread I broke with you was more than bread.
                    Now that I am without you, all is so desolate;
                    And all that once was so beautiful is dead.
                    - - - -Conrad Aiken "Bread and Music"

Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,
                    And men below, and saints above:
                    For love is heaven, and heaven is love.
                    - - - -Walter Scott

She walks in beauty, like the night
                    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
                    And all that's best of dark and bright
                    Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
                    Thus mellow'd to that tender light
                    Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
                    - - - -Lord Byron "She Walks in Beauty"

I always me, accept I will you

It is the heart afraid of breaking
               that never learns to dance.
               It is the dream afraid of waking
               that never takes a chance.
               It is the one who won't be taken
               who cannot seem to give.
               And the soul afraid of dying
               that never learns to live.
               -Bette Midler, The Rose

"A part of you has grown in me. And so you see, it's you and me together forever and never apart, maybe in
     distance, but never in heart."

"I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each others dreams, we can be together all
     the time."

You may only be one person to the world but you may also be the world to one person."

Love is a dream that comes alive when we meet."

HE stood among a crowd at Dromahair;
His heart hung all upon a silken dress,
And he had known at last some tenderness,
Before earth took him to her stony care;

I have come to bury Love
 Beneath a tree,
In the forest tall and black
 Where none can see.

I shall put no flowers at his head,
 Nor stone at his feet,
For the mouth I loved so much
 Was bittersweet.

I shall go no more to his grave,
 For the woods are cold.
I shall gather as much of joy
 As my hands can hold.

I shall stay all day in the sun
 Where the wide winds blow, --
But oh, I shall cry at night
 When none will know.

WERE you but lying cold and dead,
And lights were paling out of the West,
You would come hither, and bend your head,
And I would lay my head on your breast;
And you would murmur tender words,
Forgiving me, because you were dead:
Nor would you rise and hasten away,
Though you have the will of the wild birds,
But know your hair was bound and wound
About the stars and moon and sun:
O would, beloved, that you lay
Under the dock-leaves in the ground,
While lights were paling one by one.

Without warning
as a whirlwind
swoops on an oak
Love shakes my heart

Love is friendship set on fire.

There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart...
                                         pursue those.

"Im so tired, but I cant sleep...standing on the edge of something much too deep...funny how I
   feel so much but cannot say a word...we are screaming inside, oh, but we can't be
   afraid to love you, more afraid to lose...clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose"

I know better,
Than those who come,Telling stories of wonder,

And fashionable delights. 

Saying they'll love you,
For what you are,
Yet changing you, minutely,
Behind your back.

If I could be anything in the world I would want to be a teardrop because I would be born in your eyes, live on your
cheeks, and die on your lips."

Love come out of heaven unasked and unsought. Pearl S. Buck

To love someone means to see him as God intended him. Feodor Dostoevsky

Love is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity. Helen Hayes

To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But it is a hard quest worth
making to find a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be.
     Anna Louise Strong

Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what
it's like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that
there can never be peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy for
you, too." Frederick Beuchner, "Wishful Thinking"

Love is like a rose---it can be oh so beautiful,
yet prick the heart so deep.

The path that leads to happiness so narrow that two can't
walk on it unless they become one.

It is by loving and by being loved that one can come nearest
to the soul of another.

"Within you, I lose myself, without you, I find myself, searching to be lost again."

So, fall asleep love, loved by me....for I know love, I am loved by thee."
Robert Browning

"I walk alone through life's dark night, you are my candle, my shining light!"

"Love is the blood of the heart, and the drink of the soul."

There is a place in my heart
 With your name etched deep
 A sweet special place
Where my memories I keep.

"Something in your eyes captured my soul, and every night I see you in my dreams. You're all I know. I can't let go."

"Emptiness isn't lonliness, it's the missing of you."

You may hold my hand for a while, but you hold my heart forever."

They look down on me with disdain,
                                They think me unable to love.
                              But mine for you will never wane,
                                  As does the moon above;
                                 I've got to escape despair
                                Caus'd by my longing for thee
                                And my feelings still to bare.
                                    But why can't it be?
                              Thy sweet smile can't be forgotten
                                Nor can thy loyal looking eyes.
                             By my tears the ground's now sodden
                                And there my pride now lies;
                                 Here I stand in full disgrace
                                 Waiting for you to free me
                                 By a warmhearted embrace.
                                    But why can't it be?

The way to your heart is a maze
                                   I think I'm lost forever.
                            When I look into your eyes, I'm in a daze
                                  You are the perfect lover.

The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know.

      Blaise Pascal

Take away love and earth is a tomb - Robert Browning

You know that place between asleep and awake? Where you still
           remember dreaming? That's where I will always think of

If, out of time, I could pick one moment and keep it shining, always new,
           of all the days that I have lived, I'd pick the moment I met

"I've loved you all my life, even before we met; even when it was just the
       promise of you. You've kept your promise. How could you lose

Thank you for giving me something no one else

If you live to be one hundred, I wish to be one hundred minus a day so I
            never have to live a day without you"-

Never close your lips to those whom you have opened your heart."
                                        ~Charles Dickens

and I don't want the world to see me...
                                 'cuz I don't think they'd understand..
                                 When everything's made to be broken..
                                  I just want you to know who I am..

I want to live in your eyes, die in your arms, and be buried in your heart."

"I understand that with love comes pain, but why did I have to love so much?"

Give me a whisper, give me a sigh,
                               give me a kiss before you tell me goodbye;
                                And please remember, that I never lied..
                                and please remember how i felt inside."

Pardon me, have you
           seen my heart? I was going to give it to you... but I think perhaps you have stolen it away."

kisses you without restraint ...unchained

Holding you, I held everything

          If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would
          be in the palm of my hand.

We pardon to the extent that we love."  --Francois

You don't die of a broken heart, you only wish you did.

How can anyone love me when I don't even love myself-mine

Thinking of you as become my favorite activity.  Missing you, my worst

When falling in love, some lose their head, others lose their heart.

No one has ever loved anyone
                                         the way everyone wants to be loved

It is in the touching of one with another
                                         that we become most fully ourselves

You will never know true happiness
                                              until you have truly loved,
                                            and you will never understand
                                                 what pain really is
                                                until you have lost it.

                                                 This thing and you
                                                  shall never part,
                                                for the gift I give you,
                                                  is all of my heart

                                            Love is patient. Love is kind.
                                          It does not envy. It does not boast.
                                            It is not proud. It is not rude.
                                      It is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered.
                                          It keeps no record of wrong doing.
                                   It does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth.
                                      It always protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres

True love cannot be found where it truly does not exist,
                                        nor can it be hidden where it truly does

  Love that we can not have
                                            is the one that lasts the longest,
                                                  hurts the deepest
                                                and feels the strongest

                                              I love thee, I love but thee
                                             With a love that shall not die
                                               Till the sun grows cold
                                               And the stars grow old.

if you should die before me,
                                           ask if you could bring a friend...

                                            Never love with all your heart
                                                 it only ends in aching.

Your voice makes me tremble inside
                                            and your smile is an invitation
                                            for my imagination to go wild

To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart,
                                    and to sing it to them when they have forgotten

Like thunder needs rain
                                             Like the preacher needs pain
                                               Like tongues of flames
                                               Like a blindman's cane
                                               Like a needle in the vain
                                               Like someone to blame
                                              Like a thought unchained
                                                Like a runaway train
                                               I NEED YOUR LOVE

                                      How is it that something as big as the earth
                                        can spin in perfect harmony on its axis,
                                         while something as small as my heart
                                             can go wildly out of control.
                                                  How can this be
                                         when they are both in God's control?

                                                    If I go away
                                            What would still remain of me?
                                             The ghost within your eyes?
                                              The whisper in your sighs?
                                                  You see...Believe
                                                And I'm always there

And we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. But the love will have
                    been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even
                    memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the
                    dead, and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning."

Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it.

—Swedish proverb.

  "You can't make a heart love somebody,
You can lead a heart to love,
But you can't make it fall."

  You may not have me now, you may never have me again, but you will always have my heart."

"Love is a word that blind your eyes,
Love is a fog that cloud your mind,
It is hammer that hack you to pieces,
So that you will never be whole again."
By Wilson Tse
