What is Love?

"Attention is the most basic form of love; through it we bless and are blessed."
- John Tarrant

"Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing."
- Goethe

"Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it...It really is worth fighting for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more."
- Erica Jong

"Every man is afraid of something. That's how you know he's in love with you; when he is afraid of losing you.”
- Anonymous

"Sometimes love is stronger than a man's convictions."
- Isaac Bashevis Singer

"Love is like war: Easy to begin but hard to end."
- Anonymous

"Where love is, no room is too small."
- Talmud

"Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired."
- Mark Twain

"Love doesn't make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
- Elizabeth Browning

"Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'"

"I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts,
there can be no more hurt,
only more love.”
- Mother Teresa

Happy belated Valentine's Day...
