There is a woman at the begining of all great things.
Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
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?'
Love is all, it gives all, and it takes all.
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
As I grow to understand life less and less,
Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.
I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.
We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love.
Women are still in emotional bondage as long as we need to worry that we might have to make a choice between being heard and being loved.
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
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 the only force capable of transforming an enemy to a friend.
I don't know that love changes. People change. Circumstances change.
Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Marriage brings one into fatal connection with custom and tradition, and traditions and customs are like the wind and weather, altogether incalculable.
Nothing can be loved or hated unless it is first understood.
Love is the free exercise of choice. Two people love each other only when they are quite capable of living without each other but choose to live with each other.
I learn to love it more and more.
Work is love made visible. And if you can't work with love, but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy
