We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another. – Jonathan Swift Is it so small a thing To have enjoy’d the sun, To have lived light in the spring, To have loved, to have thought, to have done… – Matthew Arnold Who has not found the heaven below Will fail of it above. God’s residence is next to mine, His furniture is love. – Emily Dickinson Free love? As if love is anything but free! Man has bought brains, but all the millions in the world have failed to buy love. Man has subdued bodies, but all the power on earth has been unable to subdue love. Man has conquered whole nations, but all his armies could not conquer love. Man has chained and fettered the spirit, but he has been utterly helpless before love. High on a throne, with all the splendor and pomp his gold can command, man is yet poor and desolate, if love passes him by. And if it stays, the poorest hovel is radiant with warmth, with life and color. Thus love has the magic power to make of a beggar a king. Yes, love is free; it can dwell in no other atmosphere. – Emma Goldman I love humanity but I hate people. – Edna St. Vincent Millay Love — is anterior to Life — Posterior — to Death — Initial of Creation, and The Exponent of Earth — – Emily Dickinson Old men are like that, you know. It makes them feel important to think they are in love with somebody. – Willa Cather Life is a quest and love a quarrel … – Edna St. Vincent Millay For everything there is a season, And a time for every matter under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to seek, and a time to lose; A time to keep, and a time to throw away; A time to tear, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate, A time for war, and a time for peace. – Ecclesiastes   (more) When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. – Jimi Hendrix   (more) It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers. The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them…. Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say. – Thomas Merton Hatred ever kills, love never dies. Such is the vast difference between the two. What is obtained by love is retained for all time. What is obtained by hatred proves a burden in reality for it increases hatred. – Mohandas K. Gandhi Love vanquishes time. To lovers, a moment can be eternity, eternity can be the tick of a clock. – Mary Parrish 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. – Carl Jung When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace. – Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama I am like a falling star who has finally found her place next to another in a lovely constellation, where we will sparkle in the heavens forever. – Amy Tan I truly feel that there are as many ways of loving as there are people in the world and as there are days in the life of those people. – Mary S. Calderone Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great. – Roger de Bussy-Rabutin Love doesn’t sit there like a stone. It has to made like bread; remade all the time, made new. – Ursula K. Le Guin That Love is all there is, Is all we know of Love. – Emily Dickinson
