Quote by Leo Tolstoy
You may deal with things without love; you may cut down trees, make bricks, hammer iron without love, but you cannot deal with men without it, just as you cannot deal with bees without being careful.
People shop for a bathing suit with more care than they do a husband or wife. The rules are the same. Look for something you’ll feel comfortable wearing. Allow for room to grow.
Love yourself, accept yourself, forgive yourself, and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love how you make me laugh. I love how you love me back. I love everything about you.
I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.
Only when we give joyfully, without hesitation or thought of gain, can we truly know what love means.
I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one.
It's not that I can't live without you, it's just that I don't even want to try.
If you don't value your life start smoking, you'll die ten years early. Or, start drinking to excess every day, you'll die fifteen years early. Or you could love someone who doesn't love you back, you'll die every day.
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.
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.
People need love. Life without tenderness and without love is just a mechanism for dry grinding and heartbreaking.
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
