To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer

For the beloved in your heart

And a song of praise upon your lips.

love has no eyes. 

But love is not blind, 

love sees but doesn’t mind.

Love is sometimes denied, sometimes lost, 

sometimes unrecognized, but in the end, 

always found with no regrets, forever valued 

and kept treasured.

Sometimes we let affection, 

go unspoken, 

Sometimes we let our love 

go unexpressed, 

Sometimes we can’t find words to tell 

our feelings, 

Especially towards those 

we love the best.

The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvellous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life. 

~ by Sir Hugh Walpole ~

 

Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.

Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above

True happiness and a fullness of joy can be found only in the tender and intimate relationships of the family.

The most precious possession that ever comes to a man in this world is a woman’s heart. 

~ by Josiah G. Holland ~

 

What we need to know about loving is no great mystery. We all know what constitutes loving behavior; we need but act upon it, not continually question it. Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings us no closer to insight. We sometimes become too busy classifying, separating, and examining, to remember that love is easy. It’s we who make it complicated. 

~ by Leo Buscaglia ~

 

Romantic love reaches out in little ways, showing attention and admiration. Romantic love remembers what pleases a woman, what excites her, and what surprises her. Its actions whisper: you are the most special person in my life.

From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.

The heart is the place where we live our passions. It is frail and easily broken, but wonderfully resilient. There is no point in trying to deceive the heart. It depends upon our honesty for its survival.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. 

Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. 

Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. 

They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Nevertheless, love was given to us not only as fulfilment, as ideal, but as suffering, hopelessness, despair too.

My creed is Love and you are its only tenet – You have ravish’d me away by a Power I cannot resist.

 Didn’t even knew what love meant before she appeared in my life. Only know I understand that great love does not consist neither of dependency to a person, nor of selfishness, but is much more than this. It is like when you immerse in the eternity of your own soul, in that place which you think belong only to toy, but where you meet the other. Only there you feel her deep look and you realize that you are eternally present in her soul and in her most private parts of her being. You realise that nothing matters, not to cry, not to shout. You realize that everything there is and everything there will be does not even exist, are not worth the smallest leaf which fell from the tree of the live of each one of us. And then you feel the need to touch the soul with your hand, to embrace it, to feel its breath, to know it closer to you than you are yourself. You want to kiss it, to share your entire life with it. Love has such an impact that you understand that it is much above what you call life, Then you realise that no matter how much you try to embrace it, and kiss it, and feel its breath, all that can never be done, because you kill kiss only the man, you will feel his breath and embrace it. You will realize that that soul will be much above your life. As you are above hers. You will understand that being with that soul is not possible through caresses, not word, nor kisses, but much more, though an unprecedented torment that you will not be able to sustain, no matter how much you want it, as it is so painfully sweet, a consuming fire that will burn in you in all the eternal moment of your life. And what else remains? What remains in my place and in hers? The ashes of a memory? From which a new love will resurrect as the Phoenix bird? From the ashes of this crazy torment? This is our life, the life of the soul mates, of always seeking one another and when they find each other they consume with the love of their love.

 To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

 Oh Dear God! Why wouldn’t you allow those two consuming fires to be only one? Why do you allow only fires aliens of each other to unite? Why God? 

I look even know deep in the eyes of my soul mate, in the eyes that were so stranger to me at the beginning. 

I feel it is above me, above my being, that my life has no meaning, but I also know that being together would kill us, because we would burn each other, as we both are much above the life of the other! We are like the poles of a magnet which attract themselves because they are opposite, but if they were united the magnetism would disappear. 

This is why we will always attract ourselves seeking us in the other until death will make us forget each other in the instant of an eternal moment. Let’s not forget that that moment too, no matter how eternal it is, is just a moment and nothing else. What about then? 

Then will we seek each other restlessly again, in the infinity where we where born to die again, still wrapped in this cloak of vanity, of the impossibility of ever becoming close?

Chelsey E

A quote to live by.

 

 A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.

Andrew Matthews

  He was a cowboy, mister, and he loved the land. He loved it so much he made a woman out of dirt and married her. But when he kissed her, she disintegrated.

At his hanging, he told the others, ‘I’ll be waiting for you in heaven—with a gun. – Deep Thoughts (Saturday Night Live)

  The brown bag, of course, had its imperfections. While some kids carried roast beef sandwiches, others had peanut butter.

Martin Gore

 The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.

 Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.

Vincent Van Gogh

 

  Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore, we must be saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore, we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love.

Reinhold Niebuhr

 

 The bottom line is that (a) people are never perfect, but love can be, (b) that is the one and only way that the mediocre and vile can be transformed, and (c) doing that makes it that. We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.

Tom Robbins

Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.

Charlie Brown

Peanuts Comic Strip Character

 

Paradoxically, all these wonderful dimensions that we want for our being are completely missing, being a hope, a dream about the perfection of the being. 

Then this hope and dream of perfection is materialized in the vision we have on our soul mate. 

Moreover, if we are under the impression that we know what we would want as perfection, it always remains a mere false impression and nothing more, because then the event of a Great Love occurs, we realize that what we thought to be perfection is false, and the novelty of the new imagine on the perfection embodies by the lover makes us feel that intense feeling of suffocating love, precisely because we find our new standard for perfection, which becomes this way superior to the old one.

George Jean Nathan

 

Each soul which believes it is its own eternal evil will eternally seek its good, but the great paradox is that in order to find each other one should look for the Good and the other for the Evil because they cannot both have the same sense because they are the opposite of each other. 

The soul mates cannot have the same sign, but, in order to be pairs, they will have to attract, and of they both were Good, they would reject. 

Thus, every soul mate is the opposite of the other one.

William Lyon Phelps

 

  We were lost and dead in sin. We were by nature objects of God’s wrath. But God Loved us! That Love caused Him to do something about our situation. God is rich in mercy, so He made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions. God acted on His Love for us and saved us by His Grace! Grace is the result of the actions of His Love. The remarkable thing about His Grace is that He didn’t ask us to do anything but believe Him. God didn’t ask us to perform some great deed. He didn’t demand obedience from us before He would save us. God made us alive with Christ ‘even when we were dead in transgressions and sins.’ God is showing the universe ‘the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.’ (Ephesians 2:7) God was Kind to us ‘in’ Christ because He Loved us.

 What is the main thing in love? to know and to hide. To know about the one you love and to hide that you love. At times the hiding (shame) overpowers the knowing (passion). The passion for the hidden — the passion for the revealed.

Julius Henry Marx

 

 The idea that nations should love one another, or that business concerns or marketing boards should love one another, or that a man in Portugal should love a man in Peru of whom he has never heard –it is absurd, unreal, dangerous.

Jack Handey

 

  Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves … Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point it, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps, then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

We all search for love beacuse it is the closest thing to magic. And when i found you i thought that nothing could compare. That is why whatever may happen you must have faith in that one person, and never let go of your true feelings.

A beauty is a woman you notice; A charmer is one who notices you. Adlai Stevenson (1900-1965)

No sooner met but they looked; No sooner looked but they loved; No sooner loved but they sighed; No sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason; No sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy.

The verb ‘to love’ in Persian is ‘to have a friend.’ ‘I love you’ translated literally is ‘I have you as a friend,’ and ‘I don’t like you’ simply means ‘I don’t have you as a friend.

 To love, for us men, is to clasp one woman with our arms, feeling that she lives and breathes just as we do, suffers as we do, thinks with us, loves with us, and, above all, sins with us.

When you interact with another, an illusion is part of this dynamic. This illusion allows each soul to perceive what it needs to understands in order to heal.

A proof that experience is of no use, is that the end of one love does not prevent us from beginning another.

Paul Bourget

1852-1935, French Novelist

 

God loves the world. That’s plain to see as we read His Word. Today, God loves the world through us, His Children of Grace. Christ is ‘in’ us and we are ‘in’ Christ. Christ is loving people and reaching out to them through us. He is making His appeal through us. He is reconciling people to Himself through us.

 When a heart finds another, what’s a cloud more or less in the sky?

Wolf and Page 

 

 A woman who could always love would never grow old; and the love of mother and wife would often give or preserve many charms if it were not too often combined with parental and conjugal anger. There remains in the face of women who are naturally serene and peaceful, and of those rendered so by religion, an after-spring, and later an after-summer, the reflex of their most beautiful bloom.

Jean Paul Richter

1763-1825, German Novelist

 

 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.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

 

 I love you. I call you. I always seek you in my heart. Now that I found you, what else can I say, maybe the most painful adieu in my entire life, my beautiful, adored, consuming soul mate.

I would like to hug you, but I know I cannot touch what is above me, above my life, above this piece of breath, and I am so alien to my self. 

I know you are the one that can bring me out from the alienation I am in, that you are my only truth for which I exist in this world. I also know that without you, the entire world would fall apart, but it as true that beside you, the entire world would be consumed and what remains then? 

I also know that the ineffable destiny will always keep the doors opened as if there would be any meaning as long as no one can go out through them. 

This is a vanity too. It is also a vanity the fact that all the opposites attract and all the things that go in the same sense reject. 

Thus Good will always be attracted by Evil, and Evil by good and the good of Good will be precisely the Evil while the good of Evil what we understand through Good. 

The soul mates are as the pair of Good and Evil.

Sorin Cerin

philosopher

 

The pain of love is the pain of being alive. It is a perpetual wound.

Maureen Duffy

 

To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.

Karen Sunde

 

Should I understand that love is the reverse of out life, that it is death? 

That we live in this life in which we hope to have the chance to love, so to die? Let me drink from the glass of your voluptuousness down to the depths of my being so that I can die! 

Despite all that, I will always love you, my sweet and wild angel of the destiny of my life. Wherever I will be in this world, I will carry you in my thoughts and speak to you where no one can ever ever ever come in! 

Now you understand, my great love, now you understand why we must talk only there and never somewhere else?

Because we are condemned to be soul mates that had the misfortune of recognising each other in this world of vanity. 

Always keep your head up in life, even when you will feel lonely because I am and I will always be with you, even when our bodies will be dust and ashes for a long time, even when the oceans will dry up and the water of life will be long drunken by the vanity of this world.

  I regard as a mortal sin not only the lying of the senses in matters of love, but also the illusion which the senses seek to create where love is only partial. I say, I believe, that one must love with all of one’s being, or else live, come what may, a life of complete chastity.

The incomparable stupidity of life teaches us to love our parents; divine philosophy teaches us to forgive them.

Baron de la Brede et de Montesquieu

 

  We are not commanded (or forbidden) to love our mates, our children, our friends, our country because such affections come naturally to us and are good in themselves, although we may corrupt them. We are commanded to love our neighbor because our ”natural” attitude toward the ”other” is one of either indifference or hostility.

You’re nothing short of my everything.

  Love, love, love — all the wretched cant of it, masking egotism, lust, masochism, fantasy under a mythology of sentimental postures, a welter of self-induced miseries and joys, blinding and masking the essential personalities in the frozen gestures of courtship, in the kissing and the dating and the desire, the compliments and the quarrels which vivify its barrenness.

He cannot. Or can such a one account death fearful? No indeed

  Love is the only gold.

Lord Alfred Tennyson

1809-1892, British Poet

 

I think about you in every moment and every image of you hurts me horribly. I want to feel every thought, every whisper you say in the deep silence of the eternity of you soul. To be able to cry in me, beside you, beside me in you, to be able to understand why our hearts beat, why we live among moments and not among eternities as if it were different. 

To be able to understand every smile which breaks in my just like a wave, which finally breaks against the cliff of my eternity through the blood of my ancestors as my misconducts break in your eternity and that of your ancestors.

And they want to tell you how much I love you, how much I adore you in this vain world. 

I know we will never be able to look in the eyes, but only in the hearts.

I know they beat against the infinite precisely because they beat even though we both want the infinite and its truth. Any beat opposes the infinite because it measures an infinity, even if it is finite. And then?

 I do not think that what is called Love at first sight is so great an absurdity as it is sometimes imagined to be. We generally make up our minds beforehand to the sort of person we should like, grave or gay, black, brown, or fair; with golden tresses or raven locks; — and when we meet with a complete example of the qualities we admire, the bargain is soon struck.

 A lover, when he is admitted to cards, ought to be solemnly silent, and observe the motions of his mistress. He must laugh when she laughs, sigh when she sighs.

 Family love is messy, clinging, and of an annoying and repetitive pattern, like bad wallpaper.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

 

Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

 

 Love is an expression and assertion of self-esteem, a response to one’s own values in the person of another. One gains a profoundly personal, selfish joy from the mere existence of the person one loves. It is one’s own personal, selfish happiness that one seeks, earns, and derives from love.

 One would always want to think of oneself as being on the side of love, ready to recognize it and wish it well –but, when confronted with it in others, one so often resented it, questioned its true nature, secretly dismissed the particular instance as folly or promiscuity. Was it merely jealousy, or a reluctance to admit so noble and enviable a sentiment in anyone but oneself?

Shirley Hazzard

Henry Ward Beecher

 ‘Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.

 I would not miss your face, your neck, your hands, your limbs, your bosom and certain other of your charms. Indeed, not to become boring by naming them all, I could do without you, Chloe, altogether.

Marcus Valerius Martial

 

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’ re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU… The one who turns to his friends and says, thats her…

 Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and among all, never… never forget it.

  We were given: Two hands to hold. To legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find.

 What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught. Happily I wrapped those painful bonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger and quarrels.

 Love – a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker.

Anonymous

 

 LOVE: We think about it, Sing about it, Dream about it && Loose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t know we have it, we search for it. When we discover it, we don’t know what to do with it. When we have it, we fear loosing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we don’t know which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define && IMPOSSIBLE to live without.

  Friends will keep you sane, Love could fill your heart, A lover can warm your bed, But lonely is the soul without a mate.

David Pratt

 

 What can the love in my soul be compared to another wonderful soul which is so far and yet so close of my self? 

What can this symbiosis between two souls can be? 

What can love be when you feel you cannot sleep at night, that every drop of dew becomes a crystal in your heart, when every breeze of wind has magical meanings? 

What can love be when you feel that you want nothing more in this world that to be with the soul you love? 

But what can love be in other transcendental realities? What about our souls? 

Are our souls a waterfall, a true Niagara or a smile, a flirt of an angel? Are our souls a mere mood of a fairy or a lightening in a summer rain?

Our souls could be all of this and much more. But what really happens in that transcendental reality when we feel we are truly in love, that we love so much that it hurts? That the air in the room is unbreathable, that the sentimental, spiritual or physical distances kill us? What happens when dawn find us sadder than ever, looking for an excuse or an argument for the person we love so much, our Great Love? What are all thses? What are the looks lost in the desert horizons of unfulfilment or those in the eyes that deeply loose each other in the others inside the souls?

 ‘Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.

  The nature of men and women – their essential nature – is so vile and despicable that if you were to portray a person as he really is, no one would believe you.

W Somerset Maugham

 

  The image of the tormented man is taken and reproduced in the dirtiest political ways by the institutions of the church, and through this image they squeeze money and a part of the souls of the people in order to convert them to a faith that no longer is part of the ultimate form of man’s love, to faith of the obedience to groupings, official, governmental or any other occult institutions and hierarchies. 

The church stole the image of the Crucified Christ, which is the image of the holiness of man because it wanted this image precisely due to the fact that man found himself again in it. 

Church found itself that much in this image that it reached the ultimate stage of man’s love, holiness. 

Then it could have been a favourable moment to reunite man with his Sacred Self, if this image would have not been stolen from the man by the church and subsequently institutionalized, becoming eventually the image which will enslave man.

  Love is just a feeling of togetherness and openness in your heart.

Ken Keyes

 

  Love is the only bow of life’s dark cloud. It is the Morning and Evening Star. It shines upon the cradle of the babe, and sheds its radiance upon the quiet tomb. It is the Mother of Art, inspirer of poet, patriot, and philosopher. It is the air and light of every heart, builder of every home, kinder of every fire on every hearth, It was the first dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody. Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings of common clay.

Robert Green Ingersoll

“Relationships–of all kinds–are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.”
