Romance Quotes

Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
 Love can transpose to form and dignity.
 Love looks not with the eye, but with the mind,
 And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
 {William Shakespeare}
Romantic love is a passionate spiritual-emotional-sexual attachment between a man and a woman that reflects a high regard for the value of each other's person.
 {Nathaniel Branden}
Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart, or its flame burns low.
{Henry Ward Beecher}
A happy marriage has in it all the pleasures of friendships, all the enjoyment of sense and reason - and indeed all the sweets of life.
 {Joseph Addison}
The heart is the place where we live our passions. It is frail and easily broken, but wonderfully resilient. There is no point in trying to deceive the heart. It depends upon our honesty for its survival.
 { Leo Buscaglia}
What we need to know about loving is no great mystery. We all know what constitutes loving behavior; we need but act upon it, not continually question it. Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings us no closer to insight. We sometimes become too busy classifying, separating, and examining, to remember that love is easy. It's we who make it complicated.
 {Leo Buscaglia}
So I never quite despair,
Nor let my courage fail,
And some day when skies are fair,
Up the bay my ships will sail.
{Robert Barry Coffin}
Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.
{Marie Curie}
The flame of the aspiration must be so straight and so ardent that no obstacle can dissolve it.
I have always grown from my problems and challenges, from the things that don't work out, that's when I've really learned.
{Carol Burnett}}
Life is like going up a mountain. Each successive peak appears in turn the summit and yet there is always another pinnacle beyond.
{Winston Churchill}
To feel the thorn points keenly
But to grasp one fragrant rose
To glimpse amid the darkness
Just one hight inspiring gleam.
To note thro' lurid atmosphere
One star that brightly glows
To hold as sacred, sweet and pure
One time enduring dream.
to keep despite a sneering world
One's love of Truth and light
to stand for the sake of peace, aside
Tho' glory lie in Strife;
To smile tho' all of earthly Joy
Has vanished from one's sight;
To wait the call to follow on
All this, all this is Life.
Other men said they have seen angels,
 But I have seen thee
 And thou art enough.
 {G. Moore}
I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion -
 I have shudder'd at it.
 I shudder no more.
 I could be martyr'd for my religion
 Love is my religion
 And I could die for that.
 I could die for you.
 {John Keats}
I have found men who didn't know how to kiss.
 I've always found time to teach them.
 { Mae West}
Love is that condition in which
 The happiness of another person
 Is essential to your own.
 {Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land}
A part of you has grown in me.
 And so you see, it's you and me
 Together forever and never apart,
 Maybe in distance, but never in heart.
To get the full value of joy
 You must have someone to divide it with.
 {Mark Twain}
Opposites attract, but after marriage, opposites attack. Most of the time, we are attracted to people who don't have the things that we have. Incompatibility is why we get married, but it's also used as a reason to divorce.
 Incompatibility is just a lack of communication. If we just try to love [our spouse] the way we want to be loved, we are in trouble. Unless you communicate, it's difficult to know how to love another person.
 {Dr. Charles Lowery }
Love knows no reasons,
 love knows no lies.
 Love defies all reasons,
 love has no eyes.
 But love is not blind,
 love sees but doesn't mind.
 {Author unknown}
Sometimes we let affection,
 go unspoken,
 Sometimes we let our love
 go unexpressed,
 Sometimes we can't find words to tell
 our feelings,
 Especially towards those
 we love the best.
 {Author unknown}
When it is dark enough you can see the stars.
{Charles A. Beard}
Glory gives herself only to those who have always dreamed of her.
{Charles De Gaulle}
In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
{Albert Camus}
The tree which needs two arms to span its girth sprang from the tiniest shoot. You tower, nine storeys high, rose from a little mound of earth. A journey of a thousand miles began with a single step.
{Lao Tse}
The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.
{Lvy Baker Priest}
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could no hang on a minute loger, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
{Harriet Beecher Stowe}
Everyone's future is, in reality, an urn full of unknown treasures from which all may draw unguessed prizes.
{Lord Dunsany}
I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.
{Louisa May Alcott}
