When I see children, I see the face of God. That's why I love them so much. That's what I see.
The first duty of love is to listen.
Every breath is an opportunity to receive and let go. I receive love and I let go of pain
One must not lose desires. They are mighty stimulants to creativeness, to love, and to long life.
This is one of the miracles of love: It gives a power of seeing through its own enchantments and yet not being disenchanted.
Never self-possessed, or prudent, love is all abandonment.
The joy of life is variety; the tenderest love requires to be rekindled by intervals of absence
Show me your hands. Do they have scars from giving? Show me your feet. Are they wounded in service? Show me your heart. Have you left a place for divine love?
Next to love, sympathy is the divinest passion of the human heart
Love begins with an image; lust with a sensation.
Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart.
Love is an ocean of emotions entirely surrounded by expenses.
Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.
Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
The good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don't have it, no matter what else there is, it's not enough.
Those whom the gods love grow young.
Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.
Live for something. Do good, and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love, and mercy, on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with year by year; you will never be forgotten. No, your name, your deeds, will be as legible on the hearts you leave behind as the stars on the brow of evening. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven
Wine gives us liberty, love takes it away.
Wine makes us princes, love makes us beggars.
Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
Thats all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
We all love animals. Why do we call some pets and others dinner?
Where there is no wine there is no love.
Oh may He look on us with love and pity and then we shall be able to do anything He wishes us to do, no matter how difficult to accomplish or painful to our feeling.
Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained
