Love is more than just a feeling: it’s a process requiring continual attention. Loving well takes laughter, loyalty, and wanting more to be able to say, ‘I understand’ than to hear, ‘You’re right.’ – Molleen Matsumura Love as a power can go anywhere. It isn’t sentimental. It doesn’t have to be pretty, yet it doesn’t deny pain. – Sharon Salzberg Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. – Zora Neale Hurston The demand to be loved is the greatest of all arrogant presumptions. – Friedrich Nietzsche The love we give away is the only love we keep. – Elbert Hubbard The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread. – Mother Teresa He is not a lover who does not love forever. – Euripides Love makes mutes of those who habitually speak most fluently. – Madeleine de Scudery A sense of duty is useful in work, but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked, not be endured with patient resignation. – Bertrand Russell Love is blind, but marriage restores its sight. – Georg C. Lichtenberg Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer. Only connect… – E. M. Forster Where there is great love, there are always miracles. – Willa Cather All happiness or unhappiness solely depends upon the quality of the object to which we are attached by love. – Baruch Spinoza The world is too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love. – William Sloane Coffin I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge — myth is more potent than history — dreams are more powerful than facts — hope always triumphs over experience — laughter is the cure for grief — love is stronger than death. – Robert Fulghum Love must be as much a light as it is a flame. – Henry David Thoreau Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas. – Dale Evans Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other. – Felix Adler I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. – Martin Luther King, Jr. All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives. – Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
