Love does not alter the beloved, it alters itself.
There was a time, when I blamed my companion if his religion did not resemble mine. Now, however, my heart accepts every form....Love alone is my religion.
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.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
The only victory over love is flight.
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.
I am never long, even in the society of her I love, without yearning for the company of my lamp and my library.

One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.
The flowering of love is meditation.
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
Ultimately love is everything.
