If you love somebody, you love them with their scars, their sadness and their flaws.
Choosing to generate and flow unconditional love is the only permanent way to end suffering.
Surely the saddest thing in the world is falling out of love - if once one has ever fallen in.
In love there are no penalties and no payments, and what is given is indistinguishable from what is received.
Music I heard with you was more than music, and bread I broke with you was more than bread. Now that I am without you, all is desolate; all that was once so beautiful is dead.
I do not believe it is in our nature to love impartially. We deceive ourselves when we think we can love two beings, even our own children, equally. There is always a dominant affection.
I have not broken your heart - you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine.
You think I have no feelings, and that I can do without one bit of love or kindness; but I cannot live so: and you have no pity.
To give all, to sacrifice all without expecting to get anything in return, this is love.
And he that shuts out love, in turn shall be shut out from love, and on her threshold lie howling in outer darkness.
Within my heart is lurking suspicion, and base fear, and shame and hate; but above all, tyrannous love sits throned, crowned with her graces, silent and in tears.
There must be millions of people all over the world who never get any love letters... I could be their leader.
True hearts have eyes and ears, no tongues to speak; They hear and see, and sigh, and then they break.
