LOVE DISAPPOINMENTS Quotes

Happy the heart that keeps its twilight hour, And, in the depths of heavenly peace reclined, Loves to commune with thoughts of tender power, A shining Jacob's-ladder of the mind!

Paul Hamilton Hayne

The true lover of learning then must his earliest youth, as far as in him lies, desire all truth. . .He whose desires are drawn toward knowledge in every form will be absorbed in the pleasures of the soul, and will hardly feel bodily pleasures- -I mean, if he be a true philosopher and not a sham one. . .Then how can he who has the magnificence of mind and is the spectator of all times and all existence, think much of human life? He cannot. Or can such a one account death fearful? No indeed.

Plato

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.

Laura Ingalls Wilder

Let no one who loves be called unhappy. Even love unreturned has its rainbow.

James Matthew Barrie

The flowering of love is meditation

J. Krishnamurti

To cheat oneself out of love is the most terrible deception; it is an eternal loss for which there is no reparation, either in time or in eternity

Soren Kierkegaard

Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

Bible

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

Mother Teresa

Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful when your own self-love might impair your judgement.

Seneca

Self-love is the greatest of all flatterers.

Fran┴ois de La Rochefoucauld

A woman's flattery may inflate a man's head a little; but her criticism goes straight to his heart, and contracts it so that it can never again hold quite as much love for her

Helen Rowland

I am a teacher. A teacher is someone who leads. There is no magic here. I do not walk on water, I do not part the sea. I just love children.

Marva Collins

What is stronger than a mother's love? The smell of spring onions on your girl's breath.

Unknown

My flame has gone out / My fuel has been spent / I forgot how to love / I can't pay the rent.

Hugh McLeod

There is no love sincerer than the love of food.

George Bernard Shaw

For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation . . . Loving does not at first mean merging, surrendering, and uniting with another person--it is a high inducement for the individual to ripen . . . to become world in himself for the sake of another person; it is a great, demanding claim on him, something that chooses him and calls him to vast distances.

Rainer Maria Rilke

You and I Have so much love That it Burns like a fire, In which we bake a lump of clay Molded into a figure of you And a figure of me. Then we take both of them, And break them into pieces, And mix the pieces with water, And mold again a figure of you, And a figure of me. I am in your clay. You are in my clay. In life we share a single quilt. In death we will share one bed.

Kuan Tao-Sheng

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

Mignon McLaughlin

I expanded with the joy of your love and presence but now that you're gone I just feel bloated.

Carrie Latet

I have urged on woman independence of man, not that I do not think the sexes mutually needed by one another, but because in woman this fact has led to an excessive devotion, which has cooled love, degraded marriage and prevented it her sex from being what it should be to itself or the other. I wish woman to live, first for God's sake. Then she will not take what is not fit for her from a sense of weakness and poverty. Then if she finds what she needs in man embodied, she will know how to love and be worthy of being loved.

Margaret Fuller

My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved.

Sidonie Gabrielle

No one else holds or has held the place in the heart of the world which Jesus holds. Other gods have been as devoutly worshipped; no other man has been so devoutly loved.

John Knox

Jesus Christ was an extremist for love, truth and goodness.

Martin Luther King Jr

If Christ is not divine, every impulse of the Christian world falls to a lower octave, and light and love and hope decline.

Henry Ward Beecher
