    Love

    Some of my favorite quotes and passages about love. Feel free to share some of your own -- email me at dennisyoung@ymail.com

     

    Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.

    Leo Buscaglia

     

    "I remember the morning that I first asked the meaning of the word 'love.' Miss Sullivan put her arm gently round me and spelled into my hand, 'I love Helen.'

    'What is love?' I asked.

    'Love is something like the clouds that were in the sky before the sun came out,' she replied, 'You cannot touch the clouds, you know, but you feel the rain and know how glad the flowers and the thirsty earth are to have it after a hot day. You cannot touch love either, but you feel the sweetness that it pours into everything. Without love you would not be happy or want to play.'

    The beautiful truth burst upon my mind -- I felt that there were invisible lines stretched between my spirit and the spirits of others."

    Helen Keller

     

    Love is when I am concerned with your relationship with your own life, rather than with your relationship to mine. There must be a commitment to each other’s well-being.

    Most people who say they have a commitment don’t; they have an attachment. Commitment means, "I am going to stick with you and support your experience of well-being." Attachment means, "I am stuck without you."

    Stewart Emery

     

    We must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

     

    Where there is great love there are always miracles.

    Willa Cather

     

    It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

    If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.

    Emmet Fox

     

    Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.

    Marianne Williamson

     

    Love is a force. It is not a result; it is a cause. It is not a product. It is a power, like money, or steam or electricity. It is valueless unless you can give something else by means of it.

    Ann Morrow Lindbergh

     

    Do not be afraid of showing your affection. Be warm and tender, thoughtful and affectionate.

    People are more helped by sympathy, than by service; love means more than money, and a kind word will give more pleasure than a present.

    John Lubbock

     

    There are no different categories of love. There isn't one kind of love between a mother and child, another between lovers, and another between friends.

    The love that is real is the love that lies at the heart of all relationships. That is the love of God and it doesn't change with form or circumstance.

    Marianne Williamson

     

    Love one another as I have loved you.

    Jesus of Nazareth

     

    Love all God's creation, the whole and every grain of sand in it.

    Love every leaf, every ray of God's light. Love the animals, love the plants, love everything.

    If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day.

    And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

    Feodor Dostoevsky

     

    The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves.

    Victor Hugo

     

    Whoever loves much, does much.

    Thomas A Kempis

     

    In the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you love? How deeply did you learn to let go?

    The Buddha

     

    You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are . . . your simple presence can make others happy.

    Jane Roberts

     

    Let no one who loves be called unhappy. Even love unreturned has its rainbow.

    J.M. Barrie
