Some quotes on love

“Forgiving is love’s toughest work, and loves biggest risk.” ~Lewis Smedes

“What power has love but forgiveness?
In other words
by its intervention
What has been done
can be undone.
What good is it otherwise?”
~William Carlos Williams, Pictures From Brueghel

“You never lose by loving. You lose by holding back.” ~Barbara DeAngelo

“Be to her virtues very kind,
Be to her faults a little blind.”
~Prior, An English Padlock

“When we are in love, we often doubt that which we most believe.” ~La Rochefoucauld

“Those who have never known the deep intimacy and hence the companionship of happy mutual love have missed the best thing that life has to give.” ~Bertrand Russell

“I suppose, that if love were free and simple, and all you really needed, that it wouldn't really be worth any bother anyway. I'd much rather go through endless trials and torments to finally achieve my goal, than to have it handed to me in a fairy tale fashion.” ~Brett Thurman

“Real love hurts; real love makes you totally vulnerable and open; real love will take you far beyond yourself; therefore real love will devastate you. If love does not shatter you, you do not know love.” ~Unknown

“Love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can’t live without. Someone you fall head over heals for. Find someone you can love like crazy, and will love you the same way back. Listen to your heart. No sense in life without this. To make the journey without falling deeply in love, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try, because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.” ~Anthony Hopkins, Meet Joe Black

“Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more.” ~Erica Jong

“You can close your eyes for the things you don’t want to see, but you can never close your heart for the things you don’t want to feel.” ~Unknown

“'You're lovable, Vanessa.' John tried to think of how to phrase what he said next. 'But you've gotta rip your chest open and expose your heart to the open air, let it get sunburned, and that's bloody scary.' He bit an ice cube. 'Even still, most people seem to do it automatically. But you and I—it makes us balk...I guess the thing about exposing your heart is that people may not even notice it. Like flop movie. Or they'll borrow your heart and forget to return it to you.” ~Douglas Coupland

“Look, I guarantee that we’ll have tough times. And I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us will want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine I’ll regret it for the rest of my life. Because I know in my heart, you’re the only one for me.” ~Julia Roberts, The Runaway Bride
