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 must not touch the marrow of the soul. Our affections must be breakable chains that we can cast them off or tighten them
Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen.
Love has features which pierce all hearts, he wears a bandage which conceals the faults of those beloved. He has wings, he comes quickly and flies away the same.
Sometimes, it is good to be "alone".... but that doesn't make us lonely. It is not a matter of being present "with" someone, it is a matter of being present " to" someone.
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
But you realize, love should ALWAYS start as friendship. If you can't be friends first, then love is USELESS. And I will be adamant about this fact. Lovers must be best friends. If you ask me, if you ask a married couple who their best friends are, and they reply someone OTHER than their spouse, their marriage will fail. Friends first. Always.
Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.
Why are old lovers able to become friends? Two reasons; They never really loved each other, or they love each other still.
If I tell you I love you can I keep you forever? And if I tell you I miss you can we always be together?
When you say that you love someone, you're not always right. But when you feel that you love someone, you know that it's true.
Love is an attempt to change a piece of a dream-world into reality
The reduction of the universe to a single being, the expansion of a single being even to God, this is love.
Who, being loved, is poor?
I would have rummaged, ransacked at the word; Those old odd corners of an empty heart; For remnants of dim love the long disused, And dusty crumbling of romance!
To say the word Romanticism is to say modern art -- that is, intimacy, spirituality, color, aspiration towards the infinite, expressed by every means available to the arts
Romanticism is not just a mode; it literally eats into every life. Women will never get rid of just waiting for the right man
No age seemed the age of romance to itself
Rather would I have the love songs of romantic ages, rather Don Juan and Madame Venus, rather an elopement by ladder and rope on a moonlight night, followed by the father's curse, mother's moans, and the moral comments of neighbors, than correctness and propriety measured by yardsticks
She who makes her husband and her children happy, who reclaims the one from vice, and trains up the other to virtue, is a much greater character than the ladies described in romance, whose whole occupation is to murder mankind with shafts from their quiver or their eyes.
O happy hours when I may once more encircle within these arms the dearest object of my love- when I shall again feel the pressure of that 'aching head' which will delight to recline upon my bosom, when I may again press to my heart which palpitates with the purest affection that loved one who has so long shared its undivided devotion
You're nothing short of my everything.
