Love is life….And if you miss love, you miss life. ~Leo Buscaglia
Love is the only satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.
Love is what we live for. ~Krystal Kuehn
Love must be learned, and learned again; there is no end to it.
~Katherine Anne Porter
Love is love’s reward. ~John Dryden
Love is the basic need of human nature, for without it life is disrupted emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically. ~Karl Menninger
If you have it [Love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have. ~Sir James M. Barrie
The power of love is amazing and never-ending. It can motivate, energize, inspire, and strengthen. Love can do in a person what nothing else can do. Love has the power to revive and change lives, restore relationships, and bring healing. All else may fail, but love never fails. ~Krystal Kuehn

Love is life’s end (an end, but never ending)
All joys, all sweets, all happiness awarding;
Love is life’s wealth (ne’er spent, but ever spending),
More rich by giving, taking by discarding;
Love’s life’s reward, rewarded in rewarding;
Then from thy wretched heart fond care remove;
Ah, should thou live but once love’s sweets to prove,
Thou wilt not love to live unless thou live to love.

Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love, time is eternity.
~Henry Van Dyke
Love is not “blind” but visionary; it sees into the very heart of its object, and sees the ‘real self’ behind and in the midst of the frailties and shortcomings of the person. ~Andras Angyal
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind. ~William Shakespeare
Love works miracles every day; such as weakening the strong, and strengthening the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason, and, in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy. ~Marguerite De Valois

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
no disease that enough love will not heal;
no door that enough love will not open;
no gulf that enough love will not bridge;
no wall that enough love will not throw down;
no sin that enough love will not redeem...
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble;
how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough you would be
the happiest and most powerful being in the world...

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
~I Corinthians 13:4-8

Perfect love is rare indeed -
for to be a lover will require
that you continually have
the subtlety of the very wise,
the flexibility of the child,
the sensitivity of the artist,
the understanding of the philosopher,
the acceptance of the saint,
the tolerance of the scholar and
the fortitude of the certain.
