We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love.
Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?
I have seen only You, I have admired only You, I desire only You
If a thing loves, it is infinite.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
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.
Ultimately love is everything.
It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.
Just when you think it can't get any worse, it can. And just when you think it can't get any better, it can.
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.
The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can ever end.
Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
When you love you should not say, God is in my heart, but rather, I am in the heart of God. and think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
All happiness or unhappiness solely depends upon the quality of the object to which we are attached by love.
Say as you think and speak it from your souls.
Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
To love one that is great, is almost to be great one's self.
Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate.
