When you truly love someone, you don't judge them by their past. You leave it there. Just be happy that their future belongs to you.
In love, unlike most other passions, the recollection of what you have had and lost is always better than what you can hope for in the future.
Love others as you would love yourself, judge others as you would judge yourself, cherish others as you would cherish yourself. When you wish for others as you wish for yourself and when you protect others as you would protect yourself, that's when you can say it's true love.
Sometimes you have to forget what's gone, appreciate what still remains and look forward to what's coming next.
Accept your past without regret, handle your present with confidence and face your future without fear.
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
If you don't leave your past in the past it will destroy your future. Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.
One cannot divine nor forecast the conditions that will make happiness; one only stumbles upon them by chance, in a lucky hour, at the world's end somewhere, and hold fast to the days, as to fortune or fame.
True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.
I'm treating you as a friend asking you to share my present minuses in the hope that I can ask you to share my future pluses.
Because there is no man who can be true and just judge of himself, so much will self-love deceive him.
Wow, we have been together for almost 3 years now. It feels so wonderful to love someone for this long, and I'm looking forward to many more years with you.
Every year has brought us more love as a husband and wife, you are my heart's delight, and I can't wait to see what this year brings for us.
