some wise words on love

People are wrong about love. They think they are altruistic because they desire the good of some other being often to their own disadvantage. But in exchange they desire wholly to possess that other being and become furious if their love is not reciprocated.   Nietzsche

Of course there is such a thing as love or there wouldn’t be so many divorces. Ed Howe

L’amour fait passer le temps. Le temps fait passer l’amour. French proverb

Religion has done love a great service by making it a sin. Anatole France

It is easier to love humanity as a whole than to love one’s neighbour.  Eric Hoffer

Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other. Carl Jung 

We are effectively destroying ourselves by violence masquerading as love. RD Laing 

How alike are the groans of love to those of the dying.  Malcolm Lowry

I loved not, yet I sought what I might love, loving to love St Augustine

Love comes from blindness, Friendship from knowledge.  Bussy-Rabutin,  Comte de

Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love’s tragedies. Oscar Wilde

The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less. Eldridge Cleaver

We are nearer loving those who hate us than those who love us more than we wish. le Rochefoucald

Scratch a lover and find a foe  Dorothy Parker

But hatred was not an emotion he could sustain for any length of time, unless it was the obverse side of love John LeCarre

Why do we love the mothers of this life even if they were lousy caretakers ? Are we born with blank hearts , waiting to be imprinted with any imitation of love ?  Amy Tan

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.   G.K. Chesterton

Love: A temporary insanity curable by marriage.  Ambrose Bierce

He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes.   Buddha

Love is only a dirty trick played on us to achieve continuation of the species. Somerset Maugham
The love that lasts longest is the love that is never returned.  Somerset Maugham

We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.  Somerset Maugham

En amour, ce qu’on aime c’est sa propre image flatteuse que l’autre vous renvoie de vous-même. Sempe

Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls   Kahlil Gibran
Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love  Kahlil Gibran

Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation   Kahlil Gibran

Lovers embrace that which is between them rather than each other    Kahlil Gibran

To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from notloving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness    Woody Allen

I give her my heart but she wanted my soul    Bob Dylan

    I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.

    No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won’t make you cry.

    Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

    A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

    The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can’t have them.

    Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

    To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

    Don’t waste your time on a man/woman, who isn’t willing to waste their time on you.

    Don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened.

    There’s always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around.

    Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you.

    Don’t try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.
