Love Quotes And Sayings by Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Mary Zimmerman, Metamorphoses

A: The soul wanders in the dark, until it finds love. And so, wherever our love goes, there we find our soul.
Q: It always happens?
A: If we're lucky. And if we let ourselves be blind.
Q: Instead of watching out?
A: Instead of always watching out.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Mary Zimmerman, Metamorphoses

Gerald G. May, Living in Love

There is a desire within each of us,
in the deep center of ourselves
that we call our heart.
We were born with it,
it is never completely satisfied,
and it never dies.
We are often unaware of it,
but it is always awake.

It is the Human desire for Love.
Every person in this Earth yearns to love,
to be loved, to know love.
Our true identity, our reason for being
is to be found in this desire.

Love is the "why" of life,
why we are functioning at all.
I am convinced
it is the fundamental energy
of the human spirit.
the fuel on which we run,
the wellspring of our vitality.

And grace,
which is the flowing,
creative activity, of love itself,
is what makes all goodness possible.

Love should come first,
it should be the beginning of,
and the reason for everything.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Gerald G. May, Living in Love

William Shakespeare

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father refuse thy name, thou art thyself thou not a montegue, what is montegue? tis nor hand nor foot nor any other part belonging to a man
What is in a name?
That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,
So Romeo would were he not Romeo called retain such dear perfection to which he owes without that title,
Romeo, Doth thy name!
And for that name which is no part of thee, take all thyself.

Love Quotes And Sayings by William Shakespeare

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Douglas Pagels

Love is a wonderful gift. It's a present so precious words can barely begin to describe it. Love is a feeling, the deepest and sweetest of all. It's incredibly strong and amazingly gentle at the very same time. It is a blessing that should be counted every day. It is nourishment for the soul. It is devotion, constantly letting each person know how supportive it's certainty can be. Love is a heart filled with affection for the most important person in your life. Love is looking at the special someone who makes your world go around and absolutely loving what you see. Love gives meaning to one's world and magic to a million hopes and dreams. It makes the morning shine more brightly and each season seem like it's the nicest one anyone ever had. Love is an invaluable bond that enriches every good thing in life. It gives each hug a tenderness, each heart a happiness, each spirit a steady lift. Love is an invisible connection that is exquisitely felt by those who know the joy, feel the warmth, share the sweetness, and celebrate the gift!

Becca Fitzpatrick, Crescendo

Being with you never felt wrong. It's the one thing I did right. You're the one thing I did right.

A DEFINITION NOT FOUND
IN THE DICTIONARY
Not leaving: an act of trust and love,
often deciphered by children

Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Joan Crawford

Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

We live and breathe words. .... It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt--I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted--and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

I wondered what happened when you offered yourself to someone, and they opened you, only to discover you were not the gift they expected and they had to smile and nod and say thank you all the same.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

Maybe the first time you saw her you were ten. She was standing in the sun scratching her legs. Or tracing letters in the dirt with a stick. Her hair was being pulled. Or she was pulling someone's hair. And a part of you was drawn to her, and a part of you resisted--wanting to ride off on your bicycle, kick a stone, remain uncomplicated. In the same breath you felt the strength of a man, and a self-pity that made you feel small and hurt. Part of you thought: Please don't look at me. If you don't, I can still turn away. And part of you thought: Look at me.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Airman's Odyssey

Love consists of not looking each other in the eye, but of looking outwardly in the same direction.

Jodi Picoult, Keeping Faith

I don't think we get a choice in who we fall for," Ian whispers. "I think we just do.

With you, intimacy colours my voice.
even ‘hello’ sounds like ‘come here'.

Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

What would you do if I kissed you right now?"
I stared at his beautiful face and his beautiful mouth and I wanted nothing more than to taste it. "I would kiss you back.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Christopher Poindexter

I admit,
I was afraid
to love.
Not just love,
but to love her.
For she was a stunning
mystery. She carried things
deep inside her that no one
has yet to understand,
and I,
I was afraid to fail,
like the others.

She was the ocean
and i was just a boy
who loved the waves
but was completely
terrified to
swim.
