Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?
Love, whether newly born, or aroused from a deathlike slumber, must always create sunshine, filling the heart so full of radiance, this it overflows upon the outward world.
Whoever loves much, performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
I am never long, even in the society of her I love, without yearning for the company of my lamp and my library.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
Grief and sadness knits two hearts in closer bonds that happiness ever can; and common sufferings are far stronger than common joys.
I finally understood what true love meant...love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
It is the stars, The stars above us, govern our conditions
Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.
A compliment is something like a kiss through a veil.
I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.
Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind
The heart was made to be broken.
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.
It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters.
I am not sure exactly what Heaven will be like. But I do know that when we die and if comes the time for God to judge us, He will not ask, 'How many good things have you done in your life?' Rather He will ask, 'How much love did you put into what you did?'
If you don't love yourself, you cannot love others. You will not be able to love others. If you have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of developing compassion for others.
All happiness or unhappiness solely depends upon the quality of the object to which we are attached by love.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
