To love is to admire with the heart;
to admire is to love with the mind.
Tell me who admires and loves you,
and I will tell you who you are.
--Charles Augustin Sainte-Beauve
Patience with others is Love,
Patience with self is Hope,
Patience with God is Faith.
Love is the triumph of
imagination over intelligence.
--H. L. Mencken
The heart has reasons that reason does not understand.
--Jacques Benigne Bossuel
True love begins when
nothing is looked for in return.
--Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The best and most beautiful things
in the world
cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.
The love we give away is the only love we keep.
The best proof of love is trust.
Love needs to be proved by action.
--St. Therese of Lisieux
True love is like ghosts,
which everybody talks about and few have seen.
--Francois La Rochefoucauld
Where there is great love, there are always miracles.
We can do no great things---
Only small things with great love.
A hard beginning maketh a good ending.
What the heart knows today,
the head will understand tomorrow.
It is wrong to think that love comes
from long companionship and persevering courtship.
Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity
and unless that affinity is created in a moment,
it will not be created for years or even generations.
We can only learn to love by loving.
Don't smother each other.
Nothing can grow in the shade.
Quien bien te quiere te har a llorar
[Whoever really loves you will make you cry].
Love is a canvas furnished by Nature
and embroidered by imagination.
We cannot really love anybody
with whom we never laugh.
Love conquers all.
