Love is never defeated, and I could add, the history of Ireland proves it.
—Pope John Paul II
Is this what it means to become infatuated with someone? A heart becomes a hybrid, half yours, half theirs. Mine beats like this because it wants out. My chest aches to let his heart in.
The love of a mother is the veil of a softer light between the heart and the heavenly Father.
—Samuel Taylor Coleridge
There is no reciprocity. Men love women, women love children, children love hamsters.
—Alice Thomas Ellis
