True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. If you hear bells, get your ears checked.
As the ocean is never full of water
So is the heart never full of love.
If you love something, set it free;
If it returns, it's yours
If it doesn't, it never was.
Cherish things while you still have them, before they're gone and you realize just how precious they really are.
Even when love goes right it hurts
it's the great cosmic joke.

If you ever miss me too much, Check your heart and I'll be there.
Love, above all, is the gift of oneself.
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.
Immature love says, "I love you because I need you."
Mature love says, "I need you because I love you."
Anxiety is love's greatest killer.
It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.
Give all to love; obey thy heart.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
Henry David Thoreau
Be the kind of person you would like to be with.
Some people come into our lives, make footprints on our hearts
and we are never the same.

I love my past. I love my present. I'm not ashamed of what I've had, and I'm not sad because I have it no longer.

Learn what you are and be such.
