Favorite Love Is Quotes

1. "Love is in your heart. Peace is in your nerves. Truth is in your mind."
Author: Abubakar Said
2. "It's rather the possibility of friendship, unencumbered by feelings of attraction or shyness; the possibility of working on the same wavelength, as it were, with someone who understands you because he's a boy as you are, or a girl as you are. Committee work stifles the imagination, because people have to work down to the common denominator of what would be minimally acceptable to everyone. But friendship exalts the imagination. Indeed it is one of the things that the ancients said friendship was for. Plato suggests in Symposium that one of the highest forms of friendship is one whose love issues forth in beautiful and virtuous deeds, for thus "the partnership between [the friends] will be far closer and the bond of affection far stronger than between ordinary parents, because the children that they share surpass human children by being immortal as well as more beautiful."
Author: Anthony Esolen
3. "Why have you been staring at me ever since we met? Because I'm not the Gail Wynand you'd heard about. You see, I love you. And love is exception-making. If you were in love you'd want to be broken, trampled, ordered, dominated, because that's the impossible, in the inconceivable for you in your relations with people. That would be the one gift, the great exception you'd want to offer the man you loved. But it wouldn't be easy for you."
Author: Ayn Rand
4. "Love is a response to values. The amoralist's actual self-appraisal is revealed in his abnormal need to be loved (but not in the rational sense of the word)—to be "loved for himself," i.e., causelessly. James Taggart reveals the nature of such a need: "I don't want to be loved for anything. I want to be loved for myself—not for anything I do or have or say or think. For myself—not for my body or mind or words or works or actions." (Atlas Shrugged.) When his wife asks: "But then . . . what is yourself?" he has no answer."
Author: Ayn Rand
5. "Properly understood, then, the scriptures counsel us to be virtuous not because romantic love is bad, but precisely because romantic love is so good. It is not only good; it is pure, precious, even sacred and holy."
Author: Bruce C. Hafen
6. "Love is dangerous, if you know it's dangerous, that makes you treasure it, and you'll work harder to keep it."
Author: Candace Bushnell
7. "The measure of love is to love without measure. -attributed to Saint Augustine"
Author: Cassandra Clare
8. "It's because you weren't in love," Mary said. "When you're in love it's beautiful. When you're not it's just dirty filthy sex. Loveless sex has no true spiritual meaning deep inside your soul. But love makes everything totally cool. Love is God's special gift to horny teenage girls and boys. It makes them feel less guilty."
Author: Christopher Pike
9. "Your love interest becomes the most important thing to you. And if the love is requited, it's the biggest high in the universe, and you'd be fine never being with anyone else. But if this person doesn't want you back, well, you pretty much wish you were dead . . . or that that person dies miserable."
Author: Daria Snadowsky
10. "We come to a corner where there are a few people protesting the festivities. I don't understand this at all. It's like protesting the fact that some people are red-haired. In my experience, desire is desire, love is love."
Author: David Levithan
11. "For [erotically intelligent couples], love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning. They know that they have years in which to deepen their connection, to experiment, to regress, and even to fail. They see their relationship as something alive and ongoing, not a fait accompli. It's a story that they are writing together, one with many chapters, and neither partner knows how it will end. There's always a place they haven't gone yet, always something about the other still to be discovered."
Author: Esther Perel
12. "Love is all about guts. If you have it, you fight with the world. If you don't, you fight with yourself."
Author: Heenashree Khandelwal
13. "The enthusiasm of a woman's love is even beyond the biographer's. To her, the hand-writing itself, independent of any thing it may convey, is a blessedness."
Author: Jane Austen
14. "Love is, or you isn't."
Author: Jarod Kintz
15. "Love is like a hollowed out piece of chocolate, filled with melted music."
Author: Jarod Kintz
16. "Love is a lot like coffee, I once thought as I suckled on a milky nipple. But I was one at the time, so what did I know about coffee?"
Author: Jarod Kintz
17. "Love is the last thing on my mind right now. But of course it's the last thing on my mind, because I was just thinking about it. I always think about love when I'm not thinking about my ex girlfriend."
Author: Jarod Kintz
18. "Love is a blur. So is this picture. But what do you expect? Murder is fuzzy, like a peach. Yummy!"
Author: Jarod Kintz
19. "The noblest relationship is marriage, that is, love. Its nobility resides in its altruism, the desire to serve another beyond all the pleasures of the relationship; and in its refusal ever to regard the other as a thing, an object, a utilizability. Sex is an exchange of pleasures, of needs; love is a giving without return. It is this giving without return, this helping without reward, this surplus of pure good, that identifies the uniqueness of man as well as the true nature of the true marriage. This is the quintessence the great alchemy of sex is for."
Author: John Fowles
20. "Love is selfless, it is a weakness, a giving in, a constant falling."
Author: Julianna Baggott
21. "… and that's why they leave, isn't it? Because they have to see themselves in the context of something larger than just the two of them. It's like that Faiz poem, you know, mujh say pehli si muhabat, when you've seen the sorrows of the rest of the world you can't go on pretending none of it matters, you can't pretend two people can really live in isolation telling themselves their love is all that matters in the world. And that two of them, when they come back to the city, that's when they find out that their love was imperfect because it couldn't bear the knowledge of everything that lies outside…"
Author: Kamila Shamsie
22. "Did that work?" I ask into the quiet night. "Um, yeah. Couldn't you tell?"I shake my head. "That's not what I meant. I meant, did I show you love?""Yes. You and me, this is what love is."We learned it together."
Author: Lauren Blakely
23. "Love is not a thing, it is not lost when given. You can offer your love completely to hundreds of people and still retain the same love you had originally."
Author: Leo Buscaglia
24. "The totality of love is just three simple acts; devotion, loyalty and sacrifice."
Author: M.F. Moonzajer
25. "Love is the only prayer I know."
Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
26. "Love is not only pure joy, and delight, but also great and deep heaviness of heart and sorrow. But love too is full of joy and sweetness even in bitter sorrow, because it regards the misery and injury of others as its own. So also Christ was glowing with burning love in His last and greatest agony. According to St. Hilary, it was Christ's greatest joy that He endured the greatest woe. Thus God "giveth strength and power unto His people" (Ps. 68:15). While they experience the greatest sorrow, their hearts overflow with joy."
Author: Martin Luther
27. "Falling in love for the first time is a completely transcendent experience. It's like eating pizza-flavored ice cream. Your brain can't even process that level of joy. Love makes people do crazy things like kill other people or shop at Crate & Barrel. I think on some level it makes us all delusional. Deep down, our whole lives, no matter how low our self-esteem gets, we think, I have a special skill that no one knows about and if they knew they'd be amazed. And then eventually we meet someone who says, "You have a secret special skill." And you're like, "I know! So do you!" And they're like, "I know!" And then you're like, "We should eat pizza ice cream together." And that's what love is. It's this giant mound of pizza-flavored ice cream and delusion"
Author: Mike Birbiglia
28. "We'd been so ... clueless that being in heat is not, by a long shot, the same as being in love, or that being in love is not, by a long shot, the same as loving."
Author: Molleen Zwiker
29. "By abiding steadfastly in the Heart, a life that is wholly suffused with true love flourishes without any obstruction as one's own nature. Since the illusory association, the veiling ego, has died, this life of love is indeed the splendour of jñana, the enjoyment of Siva-svarupa that shines with extreme calm."
Author: Muruganar
30. "Losing one glove is certainly painful, but nothing compared to the pain, of losing one, throwing away the other, and finding the first one again."
Author: Piet Hein
31. "Oh so what if where related, so what if we're not accepted, love knows no relation, no gender, no boundary. Love is exactly what it is and if no one else can see that, well fuck them"
Author: R.J. Seeley
32. "I love seeing old couples. Maybe because its give me faith to believe that the real love is known."
Author: Redzel Romulo
33. "Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own... Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy."

Think about it — do you really want to live in a world of only two dimensions?So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole."
Author: Vera Nazarian
