All dates consist of three things; food, entertainment and affection. At first, there is a lot of entertainment and only a little affection. As the relationship progresses, the entertainment is decreased and the affection is increased. When the affection becomes the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. At no time may the food be omitted.
You love somebody once, you love them forever - only maybe not as much as the next person.
Love is that condition in the human spirit so profound that it allows me to survive, and better than that, to thrive with passion, compassion, and style.
To love without role, without power plays, is revolution.
(Rita Mae Brown)
Love, by its very nature, is unworldly, and it is for this reason rather than its rarity that it is not only apolitical but anti-political, perhaps the most powerful of all anti-political human forces.
I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.
To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.
(Alphonse de Lemartine)
We come to love not by finding a perfect person but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.
(Rita Mae Brown)
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Meaningful Overnight Relationship.
Mom, romance is dead. It was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece by piece.
What the world really needs is more love and less paperwork.
No one ever owns his youth or the women he loves.
Last time I saw you
We had just split in two.
You were looking at me.
I was looking at you.
You had a way so familiar,
But I could not recognize,
Cause you had blood on your face;
I had blood in my eyes.
But I could swear by your expression
That the pain down in your soul
Was the same as the one down in mine.
Thatıs the pain,
Cuts a straight line
Down through the heart;
We called it love.
So we wrapped our arms around each other,
Trying to shove ourselves back together.
We were making love,
It was a cold dark evening,
Such a long time ago,
When by the mighty hand of Jove,
It was the sad story
How we became
Lonely two-legged creatures,
Itıs the story of
The origin of love.
Thatıs the origin of love.

To love one that is great, is almost to be great one's self
Dear God, I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybodyin the whole world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it.
(Elementary school student)
Love is a condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
You must be willing to give total unconditional love to everyone, under all circumstances. That means being willing to be totally responsible for what you do and how you do it.
We'll love you just the way you are if you're perfect.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when you're sure they won't laugh if you trip.
Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved.
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
(Martin Luther King Jr.)
This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath, may prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.
The wise man will love; all others will desire.
Love is what we call the situation which occurs when two people who are sexually compatible discover that they can also tolerate one another in various other circumstances.
A man in love is incomplete until he is married. Then he is finished.
(Zsa Zsa Gabor)
Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.
The only things I know for sure are that God is love; we are all connected; and love and fear are opposites.

The one you love is either hiding for you to find or under your nose for you to ignore.

This is destiny so why pretend
Close your eyes kiss me once again.
I'll always be the only one you need.
So go where your deepest longing leads.
