Roald Dahl, The Witches

It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like, so long as somebody loves you.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Roald Dahl, The Witches

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

I imagine a line, a white line, painted on the sand and on the ocean, from me to you.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Ellen Bass

to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you've held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?
Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Ellen Bass

Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness

Toni Morrison

You think because he doesn't love you that you are worthless. You think that because he doesn't want you anymore that he is right -- that his judgement and opinion of you are correct. If he throws you out, then you are garbage. You think he belongs to you because you want to belong to him. Don't. It's a bad word, 'belong.' Especially when you put it with somebody you love. Love shouldn't be like that. Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can't even see the mountain for the clouds. But you know what? You go up top and what do you see? His head. The clouds never cover the head. His head pokes through, beacuse the clouds let him; they don't wrap him up. They let him keep his head up high, free, with nothing to hide him or bind him. You can't own a human being. You can't lose what you don't own. Suppose you did own him. Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don't, do you? And neither does he. You're turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can't value you more than you value yourself.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Toni Morrison

Lady Gaga

Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Lady Gaga

Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

It didn't make you noble to step away from something that wasn't working, even if you thought you were the reason for the malfunction. Especially then. It just made you a quitter. Because if you were the problem, chances were you could also be the solution. The only way to find out was to take another shot.

Love Quotes And Sayings by Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers...

Love Quotes And Sayings by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Love is the strangest, most illogical thing in the world.

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!

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

Joan Crawford

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.
