When love is not madness, it is not love. ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
~William Shakespeare, Mid-Summer Night's Dream, 1595
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
I don't wish to be everything to everyone, but I would like to be something to someone.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.
A. A. Milne
If you want to be loved, be lovable.
Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.' Mature love says 'I need you because I love you.'
It is sad not to love, but it is much sadder not to be able to love.
Miguel de Unamuno
Love conquers all.
Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
Love is the beauty of the soul.
Music is love in search of a word.
