“True love does not run away.
True love does not lose faith.
True love does not retreat
with the slightest discomfort.
True love endures.
True love heals.
True love overcomes all darkness
and all hopelessness.
You will never doubt true love when you see it.
You will just know.
You will BELIEVE.”
“Love is the strongest force the world possesses, and yet it is the humblest imaginable.” – Mohandas K. Gandhi
“Love to be real, it must cost—it must hurt—it must empty us of self.”-Mother Teresa
Love is not blind – it sees more, not less. But because it sees more, it is willing to see less.- Rabbi Julius Gordon
To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven. – Karen Sunde
Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.- Peter Ustinov
One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love. – Sophocles
We cannot love a person
with an all accepting, transcending and encompassing love
without being hurt somewhat,
without being disappointed,
without being failed
of our expectations.
We cannot love
without being broken,
yet we cannot continue in love
without being stronger
than our brokenness.
Life’s greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.- Victor Hugo
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. – Mother Teresa
Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13, WEB-BE
Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another. – George Eliot
How many times do I love, again?
Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain
Unravelled from the trembling main
And threading the eye of a yellow star:—
So many times do I love again.
-Thos. Lovell Beddoes
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could. – Barbara de Angelis
There is no remedy for love but to love more.-Henry David Thoreau
Love often knows no measure,
but burns beyond all measure.
Love feels no burden, values no labours,
would like to do more than it can do,
without excusing itself with impossibility,
because it believes that it may and can do all things.
Love is the light—and in the end, the only light—that can always illuminate a world grown dim and give us the courage needed to keep living and working. – Pope Benedict XVI
“Love is trembling happiness.” – KAHLIL GIBRAN
“If you will love me I cannot promise you that I will not hurt you. I cannot promise you that I will not make you cry and that I’ll never break your heart. But if you will love me, I will bare my whole self naked before you, and I will reveal to you my soul. If you will love me, you can be certain that it is I that you will love, not a mask that fools you and gives you only what your eyes desire to see. If you will love me, you can be certain that you will love the depths of me, all of me that is in me, and I in turn will love you with all of me, with all my soul, with all my mind, with all my spirit, with all my flaws and beauty, and with all my very heart.” – Jocelyn Soriano
Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, WEB-BE
“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
