We are all born for love; it is the principle of existence and its only end.
To fall in love you have to be in the state of mind for it to take, like a disease.
Despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, I have not been able to answer... the great question that has never been answered: what does a woman want?
One who has loved truly can never lose entirely.
Never pretend to a love which you don't actually feel, for love is not ours to command.
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.
The difference between the love of a man and the love of a woman is that a man will always give reasons for loving, but a woman gives no reasons for loving.
Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
Sometimes, only one person is missing, and the whole world seems depopulated.
I am never long, even in the society of her I love, without yearning for the company of my lamp and my library.

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none; be able for thine enemy rather in power than use; and keep thy friend under thine own life's key; be checked for silence, but never taxed for speech
Love is the power to see similarity in the dissimilar.
Genuine love is volitional rather than emotional.
Whoever loves much, performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
If there is such a thing as a good marriage, it is because it resembles friendship rather than love.
