Quotations about Love




Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.



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.
Anaïs 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"
