Quote by Blaise Pascal
We conceal it from ourselves in vain - we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man cannot possibly live for a moment without it.
If a man can be properly said to love something, it must be clear that he feels affection for it as a whole, and does not love part of it to the exclusion of the rest.
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.
For me, to love is to live; I feel this, I see it more than ever now; all things prove it to me; I recognize that never again can any taste, any absorption of mind, any passion exist for me but that you know of, -- which fills not only my heart, but my whole brain.
Love is a perfume you cannot pour onto others without getting a few drops on yourself.
A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.
A man without passion would be like a body without a soul. Or even more grotesque, like a soul without a body.
Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another, 'What? You too! I thought I was the only one.'
No, this trick won't work...How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
Immature love says, "I love you because I need you." Mature love says, "I need you because I love you."
Love has its own instinct, finding the way to the heart, as the feeblest insect finds the way to its flower, with a will which nothing can dismay nor turn aside.
The most powerful symptom of love is a tenderness which becomes at times almost insupportable.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action.
I believe love produces a certain flowering of the whole personality which nothing else can achieve.
And love of power, is inconsistent with goodness; but quite consistent with the very opposite qualities--pride, cunning, cruelty.
