Love is a condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. – Robert Heinlein Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then. – Katharine Hepburn If I know what love is, it is because of you. – Hermann Hesse You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation…and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else. – Hermann Hesse I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart so long. If we’re in each others dreams, we can be together all the time. – Hobbes (of Calvin and …) Tell me whom you love and I will tell you who you are. – Houssaye The sage said, ‘The best thing is not to hate anyone, only to love. That is the only way out of it. As soon as you have forgiven those whom you hate, you have gotten rid of them. Then you have no reason to hate them; you just forget. – Hazrat Inayat Khan Have you ever been at sea in a dense fog, when it seemed as if a tangible white darkness shut you in and the great ship, tense and anxious, groped her way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line, and you waited with beating heart for something to happen? I was like that ship before my education began, only I was without compass or sounding line, and no way of knowing how near the harbor was. ‘Light! Give me light!’ was the wordless cry of my soul, and the light of love shone on me in that very hour. – Helen Keller 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. – Ann Landers Love doesn’t just sit there like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new. – Ursula K. Le Guin Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear. – John Lennon Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives. – C. S. Lewis Him that I love, I wish to be free — even from me. – Anne Morrow Lindbergh The best love affairs are those we never had. – Norman Lindsay If I am not worth the wooing, I am surely not worth the winning. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow On reflection, one of the things I needed to learn was to allow myself to be loved. – Isha McKenzie-Mavinga To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia — to mistake an ordinary young man for a Greek god or an ordinary young woman for a goddess. – H. L. Mencken   (more) Love cures people — both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. – Karl Menninger …the more the soul knows, the more she loves, and loving much, she tastes much. – W. H. Murray   (more) Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings. – Anais Nin
