Valentine's Day – Quotations

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies. – Aristotle Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. – Lao Tzu My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite. – William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. – Elizabeth Barrett Browning Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable. – Henry Ward Beecher Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age. – Anais Nin Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward in the same direction. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires; To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully. – Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. -Helen Keller Love does not dominate; it cultivates. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. – Zora Neale Hurston Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. – Leo Tolstoy Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it, and it darts away. – Dorothy Parker I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart. – Alice Walker I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. – Pablo Neruda, “Love Sonnet XVII”
