Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.
Sir Walter Raleigh
But true love is a durable fire,
In the mind ever burning,
Never sick, never old, never dead,
From itself never turning.
The only measure of your worth and your deeds will be the love you leave behind when you're gone.
Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.
Pure love and suspicion cannot dwell together: at the door where the latter enters, the former makes its exit.
People who are sensible about love are incapable of it.
All love is probationary, a fact which frightens women and exhilarates men.
W. Somerset Maugham
We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
There is a courtesy of the heart; it is allied to love. From it springs purest courtesy in the outward behavior.
Smile at each other; smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other -- it doesn't matter who it is -- and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other.
I have great hopes that we shall love each other all our lives as much as if we had never married at all.
Love robs those who have it of their wit, and gives it to those who have none.
In love as in sport, the amateur status must be strictly maintained.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Sympathy constitutes friendship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole.
Christian Nestell Bovee
It is the passion that is in a kiss that gives to it its sweetness; it is the affection in a kiss that sanctifies it.
Carl S. Avery
Love enables you to put your deepest feelings and fears in the palm of you partner's hand, knowing they will be handled with care.
