So, fall asleep love, loved by me... for I know love, I am loved by thee.
We are nearer loving those who hate us than those who love us more than we wish.
—Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Love is a tyrant sparing none.
Many a man who falls in love with a dimple make the mistake of marrying the whole girl.
Love thy neighbour as yourself, but choose your neighbourhood.
Love is never defeated, and I could add, the history of Ireland proves it.
—Pope John Paul II
What does 'I love you' even mean? It's weird how different three words can feel. I mean, I've said it before but it's never felt so… big, you know? I'm not sure it meant the same thing then. Like, I was too young to get it.
—Christina Lauren in Beautiful Stranger
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
Love is all fire; and so heaven and hell are the same place.
No matter how much you love someone—the capacity of that love is meaningless if it outweighs your capacity to forgive.
—Colleen Hoover in All Your Perfects
There are lots of ways to love people and I know that you'll love someone else again. Even if it's not the same, some of it might be better.
—Jill Santopolo in The Light We Lost
You remember your first love because they show you, prove to you, that you can love and be loved, that nothing in this world is deserved except for love, that love is both how you become a person, and why.
—John Green in Turtles All the Way Down
Do you stop loving someone just because they betray you? I don't think so. That's what makes the betrayal hurt so much—pain, frustration, anger…and I still loved her. I still do.
—Brandon Sanderson in The Way of Kings
