…is more than one plus one equals two. When love is true and real, two together are amplified far beyond what they would otherwise be separated.

…is in its highest form when passion simmers down and loving kindness takes the lead. Until lovers become a friends what is shared is fragile like glass and easily broken.
American composer, performer and filmmaker Meredith Monk
That inner voice
has both gentleness
So to get to authenticity,
you really keep going
down to the bone,
to the honesty,
and the inevitability
…is life’s greatest gift. It lightens our load. It enlivens our emotions. It sweetens our days. It lifts us higher. It makes living more than just survival. Love is manna for the soul.
…is waking up with a simple thought about you, a remembered moment or a future anticipated one. Those morning thoughts, memory glimpses and wishes stir into kaleidoscope of hope for you in all its shades of past, present and future.
Scottish author, poet and minister George MacDonald
of a gem,
or even a flower,
cast the gift
of a loving thought
into the heart
of a friend,
…is knowing I can depend on you. When I need help you’re always willing to lend a hand. When I need someone to listen you open your ears, heart and mind to me. As good as our love is, our friendship is even better.
French Romantic composer and writer Hector Berlioz
It is so rare…
to find a complete person,
with a soul,
and an imagination;
so rare for characters as ardent
and restless as ours
and to be matched together,
that I hardly know
how to tell you
it gives me
to know you.
… Love is a sense that comes without doubt and question; a simple, but certain knowing. There is graceful comfort in knowing there is true love in your heart for me.
Contemporary Italian writer C. Joybell C.
We have to allow ourselves to be loved
by the people who really love us,
the people who really matter.
Too much of the time,
we are blinded by our own pursuits
of people to love us,
people that don’t even matter,
while all… the people who do love us
have to stand on the sidewalk
and watch us beg in the streets!
It’s time to put an end to this.
It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved.
… between two compatible people can improve happiness and enhance joy; lighten burdens and ease pain; bring solace to disappointment and consolation to failure. Like sugar in tea, love makes life sweeter.
Contemporary American Author of literature & fiction, Jodi Picoult
Love is not an equation,
it is not a contract,
and it is not a happy ending.
Love is the slate under the chalk,
the ground that buildings rise,
and the oxygen in the air.
It is the place you
come back to,
no matter where you’re headed.
