The most precious possession that ever comes
To a man in this world
Is a woman's heart.
- Josiah G. Holland
And think not you can
Direct the course of love,
If it finds you worthy,
Directs your course.
- Gibran Kahlil Gibran
Love is a wonderful thing.
You never have to take it away
From one person to give it to another.
There's always more than enough to go around.
- Pamela de Roy
Love asks me no questions,
And gives me endless support...
- William Shakespeare
I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion -
I have shudder'd at it.
I shudder no more.
I could be martyr'd for my religion
Love is my religion
And I could die for that.
I could die for you.
- John Keats
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature
To stop speech when words become superfluous.
- Ingrid Bergman
Love is like a rumor,
Everyone talks about it,
But no one truly knows.
Love is like swallowing hot chocolate
Before it has cooled off.
It takes you by surprise at first,
But keeps you warm for a long time.
My love for you is a journey;
Starting at forever,
And ending at never.
Love is a haunting melody
That I have never mastered
And I fear I never will.
- William S. Burroughs
A fool in love makes no sense to me.
I only think you are a fool
If you do not love.
Once in awhile,
Right in the middle of an ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairy tale.
True poets don't write
Their thoughts with a pen...
They release the ink that flows
From within their heart.
Love doesn't make the world go round,
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
~ by Elizabeth Browning ~
Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free....
Will never fly away.
- Dick Sutphen
Love is a burning desire,
That makes your heart light on fire,
Love is being with you,
Someone saying I love you too,
Love is your tender kiss,
Something you don't want to miss,
Love is you and me,
And that is all I see.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself
But if your 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.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart
And give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer
For the beloved in your heart
And a song of praise upon your lips.
- Gibran Kahlil Gibran
