  • 1. This Thing Called Love He who is not impatient is not in love. – Pietro Aretino, "La Talanta" (1492-1556) And if we wish to know the order of all the passions in the way of generation, love and hatred are first; desire and aversion; hope and despair third; fear and daring fourth; anger, fifth; sixth and last, joy and sadness, which follow from all the passions . . . yet so that love precedes hatred, desire precedes aversion, hope precedes despair, fear precedes daring, and joy precedes sadness. – Thomas Aquinas, "Summa Theologica" (1225-1274) For a crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love. - - Francis Bacon, "Of Friendship" (1561-1626) Nuptial love maketh mankind; friendly love perfecteth it; but wanton love corrupteth and embaseth it. - - Francis Bacon, "Of Judicature" (1561-1626) Love has been assigned to woman as her supreme vocation, and when she directs it toward a man, she is seeking God in him; but if human love is denied her by circumstance, if she is disappointed or overparticular she may choose to adore divinity in the person of God Himself. - - Simon De Beauvoir, "The Second Sex" (1949) 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. - - -William Blake, Songs of Experience, "The Clod & the Pebble" (1794) When the coin is tossed either Love or Lust will fall uppermost. But if the metal is right, under the one will always be the other. –Gerald Brenan, "Thoughts in a Dry Season" (1899) Lover indeed (I may not deny) first united provinces, built cities, and by a perpetual generation makes and preserves mankind; but if it rage it has no more love, but burning lust, a disease, frenzy, madness, hell . . . It subverts kingdoms, overthrows cities, towns, families; mars, corrupts and makes a massacre of men; thunder and lightning, wars, fires, plagues, have not done the mischief as this burning lust, this brutish passion. –Robert Burton, "The Anatomy of Melancholy" (1621) In her first passion woman loves her lover, In all the others all she loves is love. ---Lord Byron, "Don Juan" (1821) Love is ever the beginning of Knowledge as fire is of light. – Thomas Carlyle, "Goethe" (1828)
  • 2. I hate and love. You may ask why I do so. I do not know, but I feel it and am in torment. – Cais Valerius Catullus, "Carmina" (87-54 B.C.) Love in young men: for the most part is not love but sexual desire, and it accomplishment is the end. - - Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra, attributed (1547-1615) "Do not forget, Sancho," replied Don Quixote, "that there are two kinds of beauty, one being of the soul and the other of the body. That of the soul is revealed through intelligence, modesty, right conduct, generosity, and good breeding, all of which qualities may exist in an ugly man; and when one’s gaze is fixed upon beauty of this sort and not upon that of the body, love is usually born suddenly and violently." - - - Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra, "Don Quixote" (1605-1615) Everything ought to be beautiful in a human being: ---Anton Chekhov "Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears. " --- Edgar Allan Poe Autumn is over the long leaves that love us, And over the mice in the barley sheaves; Yellow the leaves of the rowan above us, And yellow the wet wild-strawberry leaves. The hour of the waning of love has beset us, And weary and worn are our sad souls now; Let us part, ere the season of passion forget us, With a kiss and a tear on thy drooping brow. .....The Falling of the Leaves by William Butler Yeats It is not enough to conquer; one must know how to seduce.....Voltaire We fly to beauty as an asylum from the terrors of finite nature. - -
  • 3. Emerson, Journals, 1836. Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance, but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself. - - Goethe, quoted in Johann Peter Eckermann's Conversations with Goethe, April 18, 1827. "For I conclude that the enemy is not lipstick, but guilt itself; that we deserve lipstick, if we want it, and free speech; we deserve to be sexual and serious--or whatever we please; we are entitled to wear cowboy boots to our own revolution." -Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth "People see you as an object, not a person, and they project a set of expectations onto you. People who don't have it think beauty is a blessing, but actually it sets you apart." -Candace Bergen "The Rubicans which women must cross, the sex barriers which they must breach, are ultimately those that exist in their own minds." -Freda Adler "Obesity in a woman violates conventional sexuality not only through association with self-absorption and auto-eroticism but also because largeness [is equated with] masculinity." -Marcia Millman, Such a Pretty Face "Let me listen to me and not to them." -Gertrude Stein "Its hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head." -Sally Kempton " It is not easy to become beautiful. It requires hard work, patience, and attention to detail. It also takes a certain firmness of purpose.
  • 4. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye." -Miss Piggy "Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dare to win." -Bernadette Devlin "Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties." - Jules Renard.   "If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?" - Lily Tomlin.   "Is sex dirty? Only when it's being done right." - Woody Allen, Everything you Always Wanted to Know about Sex, but were Afraid to Ask, 1972.   "Continental people have sex-lives; the English have hot-water bottles." - George Mikes, How to be an Alien, 1946.   "Sex appeal is 50 per cent what you've got, and 50 per cent what people think you've got." - Sophia Loren.   "Sex between a man and a woman can be wonderful, provided you can get between the right man and the right woman." - Woody Allen.  
  • 5. "When you're away, I'm restless, lonely, Wretched, bored, dejected; only here's the rub, my darling dear, I feel the same when you're near." - Samuel Hoffenstein.

Ask your father." -Anonymous. Barbara Walters: "You've been married 42 years. What makes your marriage work?" Robert Mitchum: "Lack of imagination, I suppose."

If they didn't, they'd be married too." - H. L. Mencken. "God made man, and then said "I can do better than that" and made woman." – Adela Rogers St. John.

  • 14. To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying. To hope is to risk despair, and to try is to risk failure. But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, and becomes nothing.

Only the person who risks is truly free. -- Leo Buscaglia > " Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and amoung all, never...never forget it.

If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up save in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change.

Take a cool, appraising glance at his pals. " -- Cynthia Heimel
  • 17.

Unknown What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things. Unknown Information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, wisdom is not truth, truth is not beauty, beauty is not love. Unknown Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get,
  • 19. it's what you are expected to give -- which is everything Rainer Maria Rilke For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. M. Scott Peck, M.D Nirvana or lasting enlightenment or true spiritual growth can be achieved only through persistent exercise of real love. . W. H.

  • 35. After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin; they just can't face each other, but still they stay together. -- Hemant Joshi Marriage is a three ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring, and suffering. Marriage is not a word; it is a sentence. Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience. Marriage is when a man and woman become as one; the trouble starts when they try to decide which one. Before marriage, a man yearns for the woman he loves. After marriage, the 'Y' becomes silent. If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say, talk in your sleep.
  • 36. Beauty is its own excuse for being. You are but the loveliest thing of beauty God ever has shown to me, Your voice, your hair, your eyes, the soft and gentle ways you are. Beauty is a form of Genius--is higher indeed, than genius as it needs no explanation. What's female beauty, but an air divine. Thro' which the mind's all gentle graces shine? They, like the sun, irradiates all between; The body charms becausse the soul is seen. Beautiful in form and feature, Lovely as the day, Can there be so fair a creature, Formed of common ways?

  • 39. Sri Ramakrish na (1836-1886 ) Hindu Mystic There are three kinds of love, - unselfish, mutual, and selfish. The unselfish love is of the highest kind. The lover only minds the welfare of the beloved and does not care for his own sufferings.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (B.C. 3-65 A.D.) Roman Philosophe r, Dramatist, and Statesman True love hates and will not bear delay. If you wished to be loved, love.
  • 41. William Shakespear e (1564-1616 ) English Dramatist and Poet Were beauty under twenty locks kept fast, Yet love breaks through and picks them all at last. Doubt thou the stars are fire! Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love. They are but beggars that can count their worth, But my true love is grown to such excess, I cannot sum up half my sum of wealth. Where love is great, the littlest doubts are fear; When little fears grow great, great love grows there. 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. For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

The father of the gods himself has denied effect to what foolish lovers in their eagerness have sworn. Upanishad s (c. B.C. 800) Hindu Poetic Dialogues on Metaphysic s The little space within the heart is as great as this vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there,and the sun, and the moon, and the stars; fire and lightning and winds are there; and all that now is and all that is not: for the whole universe is in Him and He dwells within our heart.
  • 47. Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890 ) Dutch Postimpres sionist Painter Love is eternal - the aspect may change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes one calmer about many things, and that way, one is more fit for one's work.

When a man has once loved a woman he will do anything for her except continue to love her. When one is in love one begins by deceiving oneself, one ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls romance. Yet each man kills the thing he loves, By each let this be heard, Some do it with a bitter look, Some with a flattering word. The coward does it with a kiss, The brave man with a sword! William Butler Yeats (1865-1939 ) Irish Poet and Playwright Wine come in at the mouth And love comes in at the eye; That's all we shall know for truth Before we grow old and die.

Ben Jonson (1572-163 7) English Poet and Dramatist Follow a shadow, it still flies you, Seem to fly, it will pursue: So court a mistress, she denies you: Let her alone, she will court you. Say are not women truly, then, Styled but the shadows of men? Jean Baptiste Alphonse Karr (1808-189 0) French Author Life is the flower of which love is the honey. Abu Ali Katib (fl. c. 940) Iraqi Sufi Leader Pleasant fragrances of the breezes of love blow from the lovers even thought they might conceal it. The effects of these breezes bear witness to them even if they disguise it and are apparent even if they hide it.
  • 50. Charles Kingsley (1819-187 5) English Author and Clergyman As the rays come from the sun, and yet are not the sun, even so our love and pity, though they are not God, but merely a poor, weak image and reflection of him, yet from him alone they come.

  • 51. Jean de La Fontaine (1621-169 5) French Poet O tyrant love, when held by you, We may to prudence bid adieu.
  • 52. Francois de La Rochefouc auld (1613-168 0) French Classical Writer It is with true love as it is with ghosts; everyone talks of it, but few have seen it. As love increases, prudence diminishes. The more we love the nearer we are to hate. When the heart is still agitated by the remains of a passion, we are more ready to receive a new one than when we are entirely cured. The pleasure of love is in loving. We are happier in the passion we feel than in that which we excite. The reason why lovers are never weary of one another is this - they are always talking of themselves. If we judge of love by most of its results, it resembles hatred more than friendship.
  • 53. Letitia E. Landon (1802-183 8) English Poet and Novelist Love is a pearl of purest hue, But stormy waves are round it; And dearly may a woman rue, The hour that she found it. Lao-Tzu (fl. B.C. 600) Chinese Philosophe r - Founder of Taoism If one has love in battle one is victorious. If one has it in defense one is invincible. Whom Heaven wants to save him he protects through love.
  • 54. Henry W. Longfellow (1819-189 2) American Poet Ah, how skillful grows the hand That obeyeth Love's command! It is the heart and not the brain That to the highest doth attain, And he who followeth Love's behest Far excelleth all the rest. There is nothing in this world so sweet as love, and next to love, the sweetest thing is hate. It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know that it has begun. Samuel Lover (1797-186 8) Irish Novelist and Song Writer Come live in my heart, and pay no rent.
  • 55. Sir John Lubbock (1834-191 3) English Statesman, Banker, and Naturalist Do not be afraid of showing your affection. Be warm and tender, thoughtful and affectionate. Men are more helped by sympathy, than by service; love is more than money, and a kind word will give more pleasure than a present. Martin Luther (1483-154 6) German Leader of the Protestant Reformatio n Love is an image of God, and not a lifeless image, but the living essence of the divine nature which beams full of all goodness. John Lyly (1554-160 6) English Dramatist and Prose Writer A heat full of coldness, a sweet full of bitterness, a pain full of pleasantness, which maketh thoughts have eyes, and hearts, and ears; bred by desire, nursed by delight, weaned by jealousy, killed by dissembling, buried by ingratitude; and this is love.

Yes, loving is a painful thrill And not to love more painful still; But oh, it is the worst of pain, To love and not be lov'd again.
  • 58. Alfred de Musset (1810-185 7) French Poet, Dramatist, and Fiction Writer Life is a sleep, love is a dream; and you have lived if you have loved. Napoleon (1769-182 1) French Emperor Love is the idler's occupation, the warrior's relaxation, and the sovereign's ruination. Ovid (B.C. 43-18 A.D.) Latin Poet Love is a thing full of anxious fears.

  • 61. Joseph Addison (1672-1719 ) English Essayist, Poet, and Statesman Mysterious love, uncertain treasure, Hast thou more of pain or pleasure! Endless torments dwell about thee: Yet who would live, and live without thee! Akhenaton ? (c. B.C. 1375) Egyptian King and Monotheist In the spring of thy youth, in the morning of thy days, when the eyes of man gaze on thee with delight, and nature whispereth in thine ear the meaning of their looks; Ah! hear with caution their seducing words, guard well thy heart, nor listen to their soft persuasions. Francis Bacon (1561-1626 ) English Philosophe r, Essayist, and Statesman Nuptial love maketh mankind; friendly love perfecteth it; but wanton love corrupteth and embaseth it.

The sweetest joy, the wildest woe is love. Honore de Balzac (1799-1850 ) French Novelist There are no little events with the heart. It magnifies everything; it places in the same scales the fall of an empire of fourteen years and the dropping of a woman's glove, and almost always the glove weighs more than the empire. The motto of chivalry is also the motto of wisdom; to serve all, but love only one. True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.

  • 64. Robert Burns (1759-1796 ) Scottish Poet What is life, when wanting love? Night without a morning; Love's the cloudless summer sun, Nature gay adorning. George Gordon N Byron (1788-1824 ) English Poet In her first passion woman loves her lover; In all others, all she loves is love. Yes, Love indeed is light from heaven; A spark of that immortal fire With angels shared, by Allah given To lift from earth our low desire. Let none think to fly the danger For soon or late love is his own avenger. Do proper homage to thine idol's eyes; But not too humbly, or she will despise Thee and thy suit, though told in moving tropes; Disguise even tenderness, if thou art wise.

  • 69. Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882 ) American Poet and Essayist The reason why all men honor love is because it looks up, and not down; aspires and not despairs. Love is like a hunter, who cares not for the game when once caught, which he may have pursued with the most intense and breathless eagerness. Love is strongest in pursuit; friendship in possession. Never self-possessed, or prudent, love is all abandonment. A ruddy drop of manly blood The surging sea outweighs; The world uncertain comes and goes, The lover rooted stays.

Love has power to give in a moment what toil can scarcely reach in an age. He who cannot love must learn to flatter. Remy de Gourmont (1858-1915 ) French Critic and Novelist Man begins by loving love and ends by loving a woman. Woman begins by loving a man and ends by loving love.

Heinrich Heine (1797-1856 ) German Poet It is an ancient story Yet is it ever new. Arthur Helps (1813-1875 ) English Historian and Author No man, or woman, was ever cured of love by discovering the falseness of his or her lover.
