Love Is...

Don't We All Want to Know What Love Is...


Centuries ago, poets waxed eloquent about their interpretation of love. Their words told us what love is. Centuries later, we still find ourselves exploring the meaning of love. Maybe these famous words will help us better understand what love is...

  • Alexander Smith
    Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.

  • Antoine de Saint-Exupery
    Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself.

  • Brian Cramer
    Love is like a Rubik's Cube, there are countless numbers of wrong twists and turns, but when you get it right, it looks perfect no matter what way you look at it.

  • Franklin P. Jones
    Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

  • H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
    Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own.

  • Henry Louis Mencken
    Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.

  • Honore de Balzac
    True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.

  • John Keats
    I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion -
    I have shudder'd at it.
    I shudder no more.
    I could be martyr'd for my religion
    Love is my religion
    And I could die for that.
    I could die for you.

  • Khalil Gibran
    It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.

  • La Rochefoucauld
    True love is like a ghost; everyone talks of it, few have seen it.

    Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.

  • Lord Byron
    Like the measles, love is most dangerous when it comes late in life.

    Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.

    Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within the reach of every hand.

    Love is the greatest refreshment in life.

  • Robert Frost
    Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.

  • Robert Heinlein
    Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.

  • Saint Augustine
    Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.

  • Tom Watson
    Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won't adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is sign on as its accomplice.

  • Voltaire
    Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.

  • William Shakespeare
    Love is merely madness...

  • William Shakespeare
    Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.
