What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together
to strengthen each other in all labour,
to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?
George Eliot

The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can never end.
Benjamin Disraeli

Sooner or later we begin to understand
that love is more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies.
We begin to know that love is here and now,
real and true,
the most important thing in our lives.
For love is the creator of our favorite memories
and the foundation of our fondest dreams.
Love is a promise that is always kept,
a fortune that can never be spent,
a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places.
And this radiance that never fades,
this mysterious and magical joy,
is the greatest treasure of all –
one known only by those who love.
Author Unknown

Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.

Love is the passionate and abiding desire
on the part of two or more people
to produce together conditions
under which each can be and spontaneously
express, his real self;
to produce together an intellectual soil and an emotional climate
in which each can flourish,
far superior to what either could achieve alone.

Love is an act of endless forgiveness
A tender look which becomes a habit

Love is eternal – the aspect may change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes one calmer about many things, and that way, one is more fit for one’s work.
Vincent Van Gogh

The courses of true love never did run smooth
William Shakespeare

Yes, I now feel that it was then on that evening of sweet dreams- that the very first dawn of human love burst upon the icy night of my spirit. Since that period I have never seen nor heard your name without a shiver half of delight, half of anxiety. For years your name never passed my lips, while my soul drank in, with a delirious thirst, all that was uttered in my presence respecting you.
Edgar Allan Poe

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but looking outward in the same direction.

Never sick, never old, never dead,
From itself never turning.

Love is a verb. We can’t say it enough. Love must not only be spoken, but must also be shown. The beginning of love is God.

Phil Ware

Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.

Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.
Thomas Fuller

When love is accompanied wit deep intimacy, it raises us to the highest level of human experience. In this exalted space, we can surrender our egos, become vulnerable and know levels of joy and well-being unique among life experiences. We attain a glimpse of the rapture that can be ours. Boundaries are blurred, there are no limitations and we rejoice in union. We become one and, at the same time, both.
Leo Buscaglia (Born For Love)
